The Les Miserables star Eddie Redmayne is almost unrecognizable while he plays the role of world-renowned British Physicist Stephen Hawking in the first trailer of the new movie “The Theory of Everything”.
Apart from being an autobiographical film, it also explores Hawking’s relationship with his first wife Jane Wilde after they met and later married each other in 1965. “But I love him and he loves me. We’re going to fight this illness together,” says Wilde (Felicity Jones) in the trailer after she comes to know about the paralyzing motor neuron disease that could as a consequence would put Hawking in the wheelchair and render him unable to talk anymore.
The actual Stephen Hawking is now 72 years old and has three children from his first wife Jane Wilde to whom he divorced in 1995. Thereafter, Hawking remarried Elaine Mason and they split back in 2006. For communication, Hawking uses an electronic voice box.
The Theory of Everything is due for release on Nov. 7 in the United States and Jan. 1, 2015 in the UK and also stars Emily Watson, David Thewlis (Remus Lupin in Harry Potter), Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire) and Harry Lloyd ( Viserys Targaryen in Game of Thrones).
