Ahead of its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival tomorrow, Studiocanal and Amazon Studios have today released the brand new teaser trailer and poster for RADIOACTIVE, set to be released in cinemas nationwide in 2020.
Directed by Marjane Satrapi from a screenplay by Jack Thorne, based on Lauren Redniss‘ graphic novel, Radioactive: Marie & Pierre Curie: A Tale of Love and Fallout, the film stars Rosamund Pike as Marie Curie and Sam Riley as Pierre Curie, alongside Aneurin Barnard, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Simon Russell Beale.
From the 1870s to the modern era, RADIOACTIVE is a journey through Marie Curie’s (Rosamund Pike) enduring legacies – her passionate relationships, scientific breakthroughs, and the consequences that followed for her and for the world. After meeting fellow scientist Pierre Curie (Sam Riley), the pair go on to marry and change the face of science forever by their discovery of radioactivity. The genius of the Curies’ world-changing discoveries and the ensuing Nobel Prize propels the devoted couple into the international limelight.
