For years we celebrate the male pioneers in society, rarely the female ones. Radioactive will celebrate Marie Curie, a true pioneer of science and medicine. Ahead of it’s World Premiere, Studiocanal have released the First UK trailer, a genius and rebel.
Rosamund Pike stars as Curie, the scientist who would win Nobel Peace Prize. Following her early days, a curious mind into her days with Pierre Currie (Sam Riley). The pair marry with breakthroughs and discoveries, most of all in Radium.
A fascinating time to be alive and the 1800’s with things we take for granted been discovered. It was also a time such as science was dominated by men and many wouldn’t have enjoyed seeing a woman getting deserved accolades. Will be great to see Pike get deserved recognition as it’s a long time since Gone Girl (2014).
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. From renowned producers, WORKING TITLE (DARKEST HOUR) and Shoebox Films (ATONEMENT), and Academy Award® nominated director, Marjane Satrapi, comes a bold, visionary depiction of the transformative effects and ensuing fallout of the Curie’s work and how this shaped the defining moments of the 20th Century.

The film also stars Aneurin Barnard,Anya Taylor-Joy, Simon Russell Beale, with Academy Award® nominated Marjane Satrapi (Voices) directing.
