Scenes From a Marriage: Marsh’s Distilled Look at Physicist Stephen Hawking

Spanning twenty five years in their lives together and based on the memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen by Jane Hawking, The Theory of Everything is the first major motion theatrical release to explore the life of one of the world’s most celebrated physicists, Stephen Hawking, a man with a compelling foothold in the cultural lexicon. As an arena for poignant and impeccably calibrated performances, the film is bound to be highly notable, not unlike a pair of names that overshadowed the significant shortcomings of last year’s The Dallas Buyers Club. As directed by James Marsh, the film is something of a crowd pleaser from a filmmaker that vacillates between arresting documentaries (Man on Wire; Project Nim) and brooding cinema (Shadow Dancer and a portion of the BBC Red Riding trilogy). Standardly told, »

Oscars: Actor Race Favors the Trophy-Less

44 minutes ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s a school of thought that says actors have to “earn” an Oscar nomination — voters are more likely to reward them if they’ve broken into the exclusive club with a previous nom. While such a theory didn’t apply to this year’s winner, Matthew McConaughey, it certainly doesn’t hurt for people to think a contender is “overdue.” But this year’s unbelievably tight actor race just might be made up of five gentlemen who have never been nominated before.

Right now, there are widely considered to be four likely nominees: Steve Carell (“Foxcatcher”), Benedict Cumberbatch (“The Imitation Game”), Michael Keaton (“Birdman”) and Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”). None has ever been nominated for an Academy Award.

In the actress race, by contrast, the three frontrunners have a total of 10 nominations among them. Reese Witherspoon, a lock for a nom for “Wild,” won for “Walk the Line. »

BAFTA/La Receives $20,000 Donation for Scholarship Fund

15 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On the eve of the Britannia Awards, BAFTA/La was feted at an afternoon soiree Wednesday at the Chateau Marmont.

Variety cover subject Eddie Redmayne hosted the event to celebrate Blighty’s cultural contributions to showbiz. At the event, Vanity Fair and Burberry announced a $20,000 donation for BAFTA/La’s Scholarship Fund, assisting British students studying the art of moving image in the U.K. and U.S.

Redmayne held court in one corner describing Stephen Hawking’s reaction to “The Theory of Everything.” “My shoulders were like this,” the actor said shrugging his shoulders, “and then when I heard Stephen Hawking liked it, they were like this (releasing his shoulders).”

Judi Dench said knowing in advance that she’s an honoree didn’t make things easier for her. “I’m terrified, I’ll have to make a speech,” she said.

Eddie Redmayne admits Stephen Hawking's 'Brief History of Time' was a tough read

18 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Los Angeles — Focus Features is circling the wagons with the release of James Marsh's Stephen Hawking biopic "The Theory of Everything" imminent. Tuesday night's Los Angeles premiere was well-attended and response has the studio excited, while the film's stars, Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones, along with producer Lisa Bruce and screenwriter Anthony McCarten took part in a Wednesday afternoon luncheon in West Hollywood to bend the ear of select press. Redmayne — dapper as ever — spoke a little about the work that went into training his muscles so they wouldn't flare up after bending his frame into that of the Als-afflicted Hawking for a number of scenes in the film. While he's confined to a wheelchair for much of the film, it's still quite a physical performance in that regard. "There were things like emergency acupuncture, if you tweaked something," he said. I also asked him about Hawking's popular-science »

How Eddie Redmayne Became Stephen Hawking in ‘The Theory of Everything’

28 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Eddie Redmayne always knew that the toughest critic of “The Theory of Everything” would be the man he portrays onscreen — Stephen Hawking. The 72-year-old physicist recently made the trek from his home in Cambridge, England, to Working Title’s production offices in London to watch the biopic based on his life. Hawking’s longtime battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Als) has left him a quadriplegic, and he speaks through a computer-generated voice amplifier. Before the screening, he met Redmayne. “He took a while to type something, then said, ‘I’ll let you know what I think — good or otherwise,’ ” Redmayne recalls. “I said, ‘Stephen, if it’s otherwise, you don’t need to go into details.’ ”

After the lights came up, a nurse wiped a tear from Hawking’s eye. He called the film “broadly true,” and even celebrated with the film’s director James Marsh and screenwriter Anthony McCarten »

In time for 'The Theory of Everything,' Stephen Hawking joins Facebook

24 October 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Through number-crunching and theorizing, Stephen Hawking opened our universe to new possibilities. Now, the theoretical physicist is hoping to do the same for his lifetime of work, connecting with curious followers in a way that represents the future of communication. Just in time for “The Theory of Everything,” a biopic delving into the 72-year-old scientist’s life, Stephen Hawking has joined Facebook. “I have always wondered what makes the universe exist,” Hawking writes in his first post. “Time and space may forever be a mystery, but that has not stopped my pursuit. Our connections to one another have grown infinitely and now that I have the chance, I’m eager to share this journey with you. Be curious, I know I will forever be.” ”The Theory of Everything” stars Eddie Redmayne as Hawking, who begins the film as an able-bodied graduate student before suffering from a debilitating motor neuron disease. »

Eddie Redmayne Is a Fashion Hero, Saves Felicity Jones From Major Wardrobe Malfunction

22 October 2014 7:28 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Eddie Redmayne is a sartorial superhero! (Not to mention a quick-thinking gentleman. That Hannah Bagshawe is a lucky lady.) The star of The Theory of Everything swooped in and saved co-star Felicity Jones from a major wardrobe malfunction on Monday at their film's New York premiere at the Museum of Modern Art's Titus Theater. The pair were on an escalator that was close to gobbling up the train of Jones' long Elie Saab dress when Redmayne deftly stepped in and yanked her skirt out of the way, preventing it from getting caught. Goodness, we can hear the potential riiiiip in our heads at very thought of what could have happened! But although Redmayne certainly prevented a dress »

Portraying Stephen Hawking on Screen

22 October 2014 12:19 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Though there is a large group of potential lead actor contenders for the 87th Academy Awards, many believe the race will be between Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne. While Cumberbatch is up for The Imitation Game and his role as Alan Turing, one genius who made his name in the 20th Century, Redmayne is up for another genius, Stephen Hawking, who is still alive today. Redmayne’s portrayal of Hawking isn’t the first to hit the screen; in fact, Cumberbatch first portrayed him in Hawking, a 2004 television film by the BBC. Both portrayals have been praised. Here is a brief look at the roles and what Hawking thought of the portrayals.

Cumberbatch’s 2004 portrayal of Hawking was the first time Hawking was depicted on screen, and Cumberbatch received his first BAFTA TV award nomination for his role.

Cumberbatch met with Hawking two times during the duration of the project. »

‘The Theory of Everything’ Premieres in New York to Tears

21 October 2014 1:10 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Focus FeaturesThe Theory of Everything” hosted its U.S. premiere at MoMA on Monday night, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house following the screening of the Stephen Hawking biopic starring Eddie Redmayne.

Guests included Redmayne, Felicity Jones (who plays Stephen Hawking’s wife Jane), director James Marsh, Uma Thurman, Ron Meyer and Focus Features CEO Peter Schlessel.

“I was emotional,” said Charlie Cox, who plays the family friend Jonathan. “It was the first time I’d seen it.”

“Did I cry?” asked the screenwriter Anthony McCarten. “I choked up. It’s always the same place — a close up of Felicity’s face when [Hawking] tries to speak and she realizes she will never hear the voice of her husband again.”

Eric Fellner, the co-chairman of Working Title Films, which produced the $15 million drama, said the material also made him teary. “I used to weep my way through the movie, »

A look at Screen Actors Guild predictions

21 October 2014 10:32 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

I’ve been tackling Academy Award and Golden Globe predictions for a substantial portion of the year now, but there are of course other awards and/or precursors worth mentioning. Over the rest of the season, I’ll be trying to figure those out too, with today marking the starting point as I attempt to decode what the Screen Actors Guild might do. SAG is one of the most important precursors, mainly because it shows off what the acting branch of the Academy might be thinking. This year, with such a wide open race in almost all categories, you have to imagine that SAG will be one of the biggest guild announcements of the year. Below you’ll see my predictions in all of the SAG categories, but keep in mind that it’s early and they’re completely subject to change. For example, I’ve hung back on some »

Watch: You Don't Know What's Coming In New Clip & Featurette From 'The Theory Of Everything'

17 October 2014 2:05 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Although he’s more well known for his pair of critically celebrated documentaries (“Man on Wire” and “Project Nim”), James Marsh has done his fair share of traditional fictional films, and his latest such effort, the Stephen Hawking biopic “The Theory Of Everything,” is set for release next month. To turn up the heat and buzz of the Eddie Redmayne-starring film, Focus Features released a new clip and featurette. First up is a clip featuring Redmayne as Hawking and Felicity Jones as his future wife, Jane Wilde. It’s an emotionally charged scene that takes place after Hawking first receives his Als diagnosis, and showcases just a sliver of the luminous performances given by the two leads. As we said in our Tiff review, “Redmayne and Jones imbue the screen with an elegance and a sophistication reflecting a timeless tale of love and deep friendship.” Accompanying this clip is »

Focus Features just unveiled some brand new promotional material for The Theory of Everything, paving the way to the film’s limited release on November 7th.  The clip is a bit on the schmaltzy side, but Adam’s predicating that both Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones could score some Oscar nods, so I’m going to take his word for it and assume that both will do big things with the material in the full feature. In addition, we’ve also got a brand new featurette for the film in which Redmayne and Jones discuss Stephen Hawking and Jane Wilde’s loving relationship.  Hit the jump to check that out as well as the new The Theory of Everything clip.  The film also stars Charlie CoxEmily Watson and David Thewlis.

Watch Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones vindicate the existence of 'Theory of Everything'

15 October 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"We all have the sense of Stephen Hawking, the icon," Eddie Redmayne says in an explanatory video for the science-minded biopic, "The Theory of Everything." What fewer people know, according to the Best Actor candidate, is the life before Hawking published "A Brief History of Time" catapulted the wheelchair-bound scientist to mainstream fame. For instance, Redmayne was not aware that Hawking's motor neuron disease only began inhibiting him while pursuing a doctorate in his twenties. We forgive you, Eddie — mostly because there's even more to discover in "Theory of Everything" than the straight-forward facts. From "Man on Wire" director James Marsh, "Theory of Everything" chronicles Hawking's more emotional pursuits, delving into his relationship with Jane Wilde (Felicity Jones) and the ailment that would challenge and warp their marriage (the couple divorced in 1995 after 30 years of marriage). The film flirts with Hawking's cosmological theories, but the focus is »

New Clip From Stephen Hawking Biopic ‘The Theory Of Everything’

15 October 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

A new clip has been released from the Stephen Hawking biopic The Theory Of Everything.

Little was expected from Stephen Hawking, a bright but shiftless student of cosmology, given just two years to live following the diagnosis of a fatal illness at 21 years of age. He became galvanized, however, by the love of fellow Cambridge student, Jane Wilde, and he went on to be called the successor to Einstein, as well as a husband and father to their three children. Over the course of their marriage as Stephen’s body collapsed and his academic renown soared, fault lines were exposed that tested the lineaments of their relationship and dramatically altered the course of both their lives. Eddie Redmayne stars as Hawking, featuring alongside Felicity Jones, David Thewlis, Emily Watson, Charlie Cox, Simon McBurney, Maxine Peake and Harry Lloyd.

For all his brilliance, Stephen Hawking has famously admitted: "I'm no better than anyone else at understanding what makes people tick, particularly women."

Eddie Redmayne Reveals His "Collection" of Fears About Playing Stephen Hawking

14 October 2014 3:13 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

One of the most buzzed-about movies at this year's Toronto International Film Festival (not to mention a personal favorite of ours) was the Stephen Hawking biopic The Theory of Everything, which stars Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones as the famous British theoretical physicist and his first wife, Jane Wilde. It's a deeply moving film that will make you laugh, cry, and think. Not only is the story both heartbreaking and incredibly inspiring - Hawking was diagnosed with motor neuron disease at 21 and was given only two years to live - but Redmayne's near-perfect performance is guaranteed to have you rooting for him next award season. While promoting the film in San Francisco, the actor chatted with us about everything from his fears and thought process to the grueling physical and emotional transformation he went through to portray Stephen Hawking. Keep reading for our interview, and be sure to see The Theory of Everything »
