Watch Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in the new Theory Of Everything trailer

Second trailer for the Stephen Hawking biopic takes audiences deeper into the personal life of the pioneering scientist


As the awards buzz grows around Benedict Cumberbatch’s portrayal of Alan Turing in The Imitation Game, Eddie Redmayne’s role as pioneering scientist Stephen Hawking is also attracting Oscar nods.


When The Theory Of Everything premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last month, it got rave reviews from critics. Judging by this trailer, we’re not surprised. 

In this second sneak peak, the focus is more on his relationship with Jane Wilde, the arts student he fell in love with in his early years of studying at Cambridge in the 1960s. “I love him, and he loves me,” Wilde says in the new trailer. “We’re going to fight this illness together.”

Wilde is played by Felicity Jones who is also attracting Oscar buzz for her portrayal of Hawking’s first wife, the woman who played an integral part in Hawking’s journey through love, disease and global intellectual acclaim.
