StudioCanal have released the teaser trailer for Marjane Satrapi‘s “Radioactive,” the biographical drama on French physicists Marie and Pierre Curie, and their discoveries. The film stars Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike and Sam Riley.

The synopsis reads:

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.
