Watch: Felicity Jones & Eddie Redmayne Fall In Love & Struggle In The New Trailer For 'Theory Of Everything'

1 hour ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Coming out of Telluride and Toronto with a decent, if not rapturous buzz, "The Theory Of Everything" is still not one to discount this awards season. And a new trailer has arrived to further make the case. With performances by both Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones garnering Oscar talk, the film tells the true story of astrophysicist Stephen Hawking and the relationship with fellow Cambridge student Jane Wilde. It was a meeting of the mind and heart between the pair, all while Hawking's diagnosis of motor neuron disease hangs over them. Here's the official synopsis: Starring Eddie Redmayne (“Les Misérables”) and Felicity Jones (“The Amazing Spider-Man 2”), 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. »

1 hour ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

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.

Alison Owen, Debra Hayward Launch Monumental Pictures To Produce Films & TV

24 September 2014 3:27 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Prolific UK-based producers Alison Owen and Debra Hayward have joined forces to launch Monumental Pictures. The new production outfit will focus on both film and TV content with the aim to “keep the costs small, but the vision big,” says Saving Mr Banks producer Owen. Long-time friends and colleagues, the pair last shared a credit on 1998’s Oscar-winning Elizabeth, but Owen says they’ve been chasing the same material for so long, “we’re both exhausted from competing with each other. Ultimately, I could see the only way to beat Debra was to join her.”

Owen’s most recent credits include last year’s Mary Poppins origin story Saving Mr Banks, produced through her Ruby Films shingle which will now transition to become Monumental. She also exec produced current release The Giver. Previous titles she’s produced include Jane Eyre, The Other Boleyn Girl and multiple Emmy-winner Temple Grandin. She »

Contender Countdown: So long, farewell...already?

18 September 2014 3:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Oscar race has barely started, but there is already a laundry list of once-expected contenders that will not get released in 2014 and will try to be in the game next year. The most prominent title on that list so far is "99 Homes," which, following a Venice debut, was seen as a potential Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor player for stars Andrew Garfield and Michael Shannon, respectively. The film was hoping screenings at Telluride and Toronto would foster its standing with distributors aiming for a legit Oscar qualifying run, but it became the odd man out. Instead, "Still Alice" and "Top Five" turned out to be the surprise pickups at Toronto for year end release and "99 Homes" found its best hope in the hands of indie upstart Broad Green Pictures. The story isn't over for Ramin Bahrani's film to say the least, but it's not where anyone thought »

Contender Countdown: 'Imitation Game' gets the early love for best picture

11 September 2014 9:38 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Toronto — If it's September, not only is it fall film festival time, but it's also time for the return of the Contender Countdown. Yes, your weekly snapshot of the Best Picture race is back and who knew 2014 might actually deliver another real race? By this point last season, the showdown between "12 Years a Slave" and "Gravity" was well under way. There were some films on the horizon that had a chance at joining the fray, but it never really came to pass. The 2015 season is markedly different. Venice, Telluride and Toronto have ended with only two major contenders having been vetted by pundits and audiences alike, "The Imitation Game" and "Birdman." Neither is the frontrunner yet, although the former may jump into the lead fairly quickly. Toronto's major honor, the People's Choice Award, will be announced on Sunday. Over the past six years three winners went on to win the Best Picture Oscar ("Slumdog Millionaire, »

The Best Things About Eddie Redmayne's Performance as Stephen Hawking

10 September 2014 5:53 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Theory of Everything had people buzzing at the Toronto International Film Festival (and was one of our favorite movies), and most of the praise has been directed at star Eddie Redmayne's performance. Redmayne's roles in Les Misérables and My Week With Marilyn got the up-and-coming star some attention, but his leading role as Stephen Hawking is the one that's going to put him on the map. With critics already predicting a best actor nomination for Redmayne, we're breaking down why this performance is so excellent - and award-worthy. His Physical Transformation Real-life astrophysicist Hawking was diagnosed with motor neuron disease at 21 and only given two years to live. Of course, Hawking defied that life expectancy and is 72 today. Redmayne portrays Stephen from the time he was an able-bodied college student to Hawking's state now, in a wheelchair, unable to speak, and with little muscle control. In the film, »

Tiff: Eddie Redmayne and capturing the smiling eyes of Stephen Hawking

10 September 2014 12:17 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

How does one find the right actor to play Stephen Hawking?

Typically, directors and producers do their homework by reviewing an actor’s previous work, looking for clues in the on-screen moments to inspire confidence that a performer has the goods to breathe life into their character. Actor X can do this because he already did that. But unless Daniel Day-Lewis is in the mix, there really is no film resume that suggests an actor can convincingly portray Hawking, the brilliant British scientist whose body is ravaged by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Als or Lou Gehrig’s disease), the motor-neurone disease »

Eddie Redmayne: 'Playing Stephen Hawking filled me with fear'

8 September 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Eddie Redmayne has admitted that he was apprehensive about taking on the role of Stephen Hawking.

The Les Misérables star plays the famous physicist in Theory of Everything, and described Hawking's story as "extraordinary".

Redmayne said BBC News: "To tell a story as extraordinary as this and depict someone as charismatic, brilliant and funny as Stephen was totally the dream.

"But with it came high stakes so it was a mixture of a dream and utter fear."

Director James Marsh also revealed that Hawking has seen the film and even lent his voice to the project, which meant the similar-sounding computerised voice created by the production team didn't need to be used.

He explained: "I think he was surprised it wasn't terrible.

"He saw the film when it was almost finished and one of the first things he said was he wanted to give us his real voice. »

Toronto: ‘Theory Of Everything’ Sends Oscar Race Into Early Overdrive As TIFF World Premieres Keep On Coming

8 September 2014 5:22 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

In terms of Oscar watching, the most anticipated World Premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival debuted Sunday night and it did not disappoint. Focus Features, as expected, has a major contender in The Theory Of Everything, its Stephen Hawking biopic that turns out to be a touching and unusual love story between the young Hawking and his wife Jane. The film is based on her memoir, and Anthony McCarten’s adaptation and first-rate direction by Oscar winner James Marsh (Man On Wire) get it all right. Stars Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones will both be heading to the Oscars in the lead actor and actress categories, and if the buzz at the Patria afterparty is any indication, they could be going there with front-runner status (although the season is just getting rolling). To say the response here was rapturous would not be understating the enthusiasm I heard »

Nicole's Return. The Dates Are Ever Changing.

15 August 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

When will our beloved Kidman return to us? For someone who works so consistently, doesn't it seem like it's hard to find Nicole Kidman in a movie theater? Grace of Monaco keeps threatening to arrive but never does leaving us to wonder if it will ever play in regular movie theaters after its shaming at Cannes (that place can be brutal). Any big dreams for the quality of Paddington (it comes from charming source material at least) her Christmas film, have been dashed by that hateful slapstick trailer and Colin Firth's exit as the voice. The wait is soon over though. For those of you who missed The Railway Man in theaters, it's just out on DVD and Blu-Ray. [Warning: Nicole's part is small enough that when the climax arrives, she's literally a blurry figure in the background.]

 

Next up though is the thriller Before I Go To Sleep which has a new poster (above) and a new release date: Halloween to be exact. Let's just hope it's »
