The first trailer has arrived online for The Theory Of Everything, in which Eddie Redmayne stars as physicist, Stephen Hawking.
The new film will follow Hawking’s time at Cambridge University, where he falls in love with fellow student Jane Wide (Felicity Jones), as he pioneers his groundbreaking theory on the origin of the universe.
Things then take a change of pace, as the film shows his ongoing battle with the Motor Neurone Disease that left him confined to a wheelchair and forced to rely upon a computerised voicebox for speech.
Take a look at the new trailer, below…
With material like this, there’s always a danger that proceedings will spill over into saccharine sentiment, but hopefully director James Marsh can successfully navigate those pitfalls, while the supporting cast is suitably excellent.
Co-starring David Thewlis, Emily Watson and Charlie Cox, The Theory Of Everything will open in the UK on 1 January 2015.
