The film was inspired by Wilde's memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen and follows the couple as she struggles to care for her husband, who eventually leaves her for his nurse.
The Theory of Everything is due for release on November 7 in the Us and January 1, 2015 in the UK.

The extraordinary life of physicist Stephen Hawking comes to life in a domestic trailer and an international trailer for the critically-acclaimed biopic The Theory of Everything, following the first footage released in August.
Ever since debuting at the Toronto Film Festival last month, this biopic has become an instant Oscar contender, with rave reviews for stars Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables) and Felicity Jones (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) as Stephen Hawking and his wife Jane Hawking.
This is the extraordinary story of one of the world's greatest living minds, the renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, who falls deeply in love with fellow Cambridge student Jane Wilde. Once a healthy, active young man, Hawking received an earth-shattering diagnosis at 21 years of age. With Jane fighting tirelessly by his side, Stephen embarks on his most ambitious scientific work, studying the very thing he now has precious little of - time. Together, they defy impossible odds, »
Focus Features has released a new The Theory of Everything trailer for director James Marsh’s (Man on Wire) biopic of genius physicist Stephen Hawking. The film stars Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables) as Hawking, chronicling his budding relationship with fellow Cambridge student Jane Wide (Felicity Jones), heartbreaking motor neuron disease diagnosis at the age of 21, and groundbreaking scientific work in the field of time. I caught the film at Tiff and it's one of my favorite films of the year. Led by phenomenal performances by Redmayne and Jones, The Theory of Everything will definitely be a player in awards season and I strongly recommend seeing it for yourself when it opens November 7th.

Toronto — You likely have no idea who Ben Schnetzer is. Even if you're one of the few moviegoers who saw the WWII drama "The Book Thief" in theaters last year you wouldn't know the name. You'd remember his performance as Max, the young Jewish man who hides in the family's basement, but you'd find yourself scratching your head as to who actually played him. Since finishing "Thief," the 24-year-old has shot three other movies: "The Riot Club," "Pride" and Duncan Jones' big screen adaptation of the classic video game "Warcraft." Each project finds him playing widely different roles, but if you're looking for a true sign of his talent you must see his performance in the new drama "Pride." Schnetzer, the son of two working New York actors, plays Mark Ashton, a man who spent most of his short life fighting for the rights of gays and lesbians in his native United Kingdom. »

The intricate workings of a rare and remarkable mind are rendered in simple, accessible terms in “The Theory of Everything,”. Striving to pay equal tribute to Hawking’s first wife, Jane (on whose memoir the film is based), and her tireless devotion to him until their 25-year marriage ended in 1995, director James Marsh similarly attempts to find intimate, personal applications for Hawking’s grand cosmic inquiries, tracing the story of how the author of “A Brief History of Time” came to defy time itself. Still, what’s onscreen is less a cerebral experience than a stirring and bittersweet love story, inflected with tasteful good humor, that can’t help but recall earlier disability dramas like “My Left Foot” and “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.” Superb performances from Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones should stand the Focus Features release in good critical and commercial stead when it bows Nov. 7 Stateside. »

Last year, 12 Years a Slave clinched the Academy Award for Best Picture at the Toronto Film Festival. Well, that’s not actually true. In fact, you could argue that the Best Picture winner almost lost the statue at the festival. Steve McQueen’s harrowing instant classic was so instantly and universally anointed in Toronto that seeds were planted for an inevitable backlash to flower in the six months before the Oscar winner was finally announced. Ultimately, 12 Years’ biggest Oscar competition came from another Toronto film, Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity. Though both films premiered at Telluride and Venice, respectively, the awards »

Main Street during The Telluride Film Festival
The Telluride Film Festival seemingly appears overnight against the gorgeous backdrop of rugged mountains. It lasts just four days but in fact it takes more than a month of intensive labor to transform the elementary school, high school, hockey rink, library, the park in the middle of town and a masonic temple into theaters. Now in its 41st year,up until recently this hallowed Labor Day weekend event has long been a quiet fixture on the festival circuit. As most of the festival world knows, the escalating word of mouth about the quality of Telluride’s unofficial premieres caused the Toronto International Film Festival to issue an ultimatum to those hoping to land choice spots in the fall line-up: if you choose to screen at Telluride first, your film will be pushed back on Tiff’s slate. Realistically- Toronto has little to fear from Telluride besides buzz. »
