Oscar nominated director Marjane Satrapi is back from five-year hiatus with "Radioactive," a biopic of Marie Curie.
Rosamund Pike fits perfectly in the role of the famed chemist and physicist according to reports by IndieWire.
Amazon Studios dropped the first trailer for the film, which premieres on Prime Video on July 24.

Pike looks great in the role, though not at all similar in terms of outward looks to the real Curie. She has already shown her mettle in A Private War, another biopic in which she played the role of the intrepid late war reporter Marie Colvin. Here, too, she seems outstanding, playing the role with gusto, though it is premature to judge everything by a promo.
Sam Riley plays the role of Pierre. Anya Taylor-Joy is Irene Curie, the couple's daughter (who, incidentally, won a Nobel too with her husband).
Apart from detailing her life, meeting her future husband and research partner Pierre Curie and contributions to her academic field, the film also recounts the struggles she faced.
