WATCH: Radioactive trailer for Marie Curie movie

Radioactive Amazon Prime posterRadioactive stars Rosamund Pike as Marie Curie, the first woman to win the Nobel Prize twice and in two different scientific fields.

The biographical film was based on the graphic novel by Lauren Redniss and premiered as the Closing Night Gala at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival on September 14, 2019. The film also premiered in the UK to celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8, 2020 at the Curzon Mayfair Cinema, before being released across the UK by StudioCanal.

Radioactive is centered on the life and achievements of Polish-French physicist and chemist, Marie Skłodowska Curie, particularly her pioneering work on radioactivity and her discovery of two new elements, polonium and radium. The film likewise tackles her personal relationships and the challenges she faced to gain recognition and respect in the male-dominated fields of pure sciences.

Amazon Prime had previously planned to release the film in spring but due to the current crisis, the date was moved to late July and, in line with this, the streaming service has just released a new trailer.

Here is the official synopsis of the film:

Radioactive is the incredible, true-story of Marie Skłodowska Curie and her ground-breaking scientific achievements that revolutionized medicine with her discovery of radium and polonium, ultimately changing the face of science forever. Marie was the first female to win the Nobel Prize and the first person in history to win the esteemed award twice. Oscar-nominated Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis) directs this dazzling cast, which includes Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl, A United Kingdom) as Marie with Sam Riley (Control, Maleficent) playing her beloved husband, Pierre Curie, and Aneurin Barnard (Dunkirk) as her lover, Paul Langevin; rising star Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch, Emma) also stars, playing the young Irene, Marie Curie’s daughter.”

Radioactive will premiere in the US on Amazon Prime on July 24.
