Telsa Contest: Win a Nikola Telsa Bobblehead!
A little over a month ago, we first teased the upcoming movie Telsa, which hits theaters and VOD this coming Friday. The film, which is directed by Michael Almereyda, debuted earlier this year to raving reviews at the Sundance Film Festival!
Telsa tells the story of brilliant, visionary Nikola Tesla, played by Ethan Hawke, and his uphill battle to bring his revolutionary electrical system to fruition. The film tracks Tesla’s uneasy interactions with his fellow inventor Thomas Edison (Kyle MacLachlan) and his patron George Westinghouse (Jim Gaffigan). Another thread traces Tesla’s sidewinding courtship of financial titan J.P. Morgan (Donnie Keshawarz), whose daughter Anne (Eve Hewson) takes a more than casual interest in the inventor. Anne analyzes and presents the story as it unfolds, offering a modern voice to this scientific period drama which, like its subject, defies convention.
In celebration of Telsa‘s release, we have a fun and quirky giveaway from Royal Bobbles for you – we’re giving away (2) Nikola Telsa bobbleheads!
This Royal Bobbles Nikola Telsa bobblehead shows Tesla’s Tesla coil, induction motor, and a glow-in-the-dark light bulb!

My son and I watched the trailer with great excitement. He idolizes Tesla and dreams of being an engineer, inventor, and innovator. The trailer created a sense of excitement for both of us, and now we are anxiously waiting to watch the whole film together. We need more films like this to show the next generation that they are the future innovators who will change our world through experimentation and exploration.

Love Tesla! He was light years ahead of his time and I look forward to the movie – he doesn’t get nearly the credit he deserves.
Hopefully this film will finally give Tesla the credit that he has truly never recieved up to this point in history.
Great choice for the lead Ethan Hawke. Looks great!
Very interesting. Kind of Baz Luhrman in its approach. Like a period piece with a touch of modern like laptops and cell phones.
Looks Amazing! History with a modern twist.. Can’t Wait for the release!!
Always interested in science
The cinematography looks beautiful. I definitely wasn’t expecting the era-bending!
Looks so interesting. Love science so this will be awesome to see
Must see for me, am a big fan. Trailer is too scattered for me.
Great historical personality, a pity that he was wronged but it is still time to recognize his merits. I hope the film represents you in the right way.
I love Tesla.. such a beautiful soul.. and such a sad ending to his life.. The trailer makes me hope that the film will tell the story without too much embellishment.
Excited to see the movie, trailer was awesome
This movie is high on my priority list. I want to see how he unfairly got over shadowed by Thomas Edison. What’s ironic is I live right near the Tesla plant in Reno, Nevada.
Looks good to me. I didn’t even recognize Ethan Hawke as Telsa. He definitely looks the part.
The guy just did not get the credit he deserves. A brilliant mind who was far ahead of his time. The movie looks good, and I’ll be sure to see it.
The trailer shows how a genius can be waylaid by good intentions and naivety. Very good trailer.
The time switch from present to past, (woman using laptop to look up Tesla) threw me off.
I would have to see the whole film to see how that technique works out
will be mind blowing
I am glad to see this fascinating inventor is getting his story told to a new generation.
The film looks to be well done Tesla was a amazing guy also glad it is on IFC they don’t do fluffy movies
It looks super fun.
I am excited to see the film is being made as it is long overdue. I am a huge fan of Tesla and his theories and believe he discovered more than we even know.
he was a visionary and there needs to be more media put out about him and his inventions
I heart Jim Gaffigan!
The trailer was wonderfully put together. I am very excited to see this movie!!!!
Ethan hawke is perfect.
I can’t wait to watch this movie. I’ve been fascinated by Tesla most of my life!
I can’t wait to watch this movie. I’ve been fascinated by Tesla most of my life! This trailer looks incredible!
This trailer is amazing- it makes me so excited to see this!
Great job on the trailer. I love Ethan Hawke and I hope sometime in the near future, I will feel comfortable going to the movies.
History! This is where you learn. The movie is great and needs to be seen by everyone!
This looks really good! Thank you
Exciting and mysterious. Applause for the trailer alone.
My thought is that the film should have come out years ago and acknowledged the accomplishments of Tesla as compared to his competitors who in the past were given all the credit. It looks like an engaging film with great costumes and period pieces with new spins on telling a biography.
