See Eddie Reymane as Stephen Hawking in 'The Theory Of Everything' Trailer

Excitement for the forthcoming British biopic, The Theory of Everything, based on the life of cosmologist and theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has been propelled forward twice this week: firstly with a still of the two main characters, Hawking and his wife Jane, and now with a full trailer.

Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones assume the roles of the two main characters and will take audiences on a journey through the early stages of Hawking’s studies and the difficulties the couple face when he is diagnosed with motor neurone disease at the age of 21.

The trailer explains Hawking as a studier of the marriage between space and time but also highlights the difficulties he faces as he tries to marry his own academic abilities with his failing physicality.

As his illness begins to encompass him completely, the film follows Hawking and his wife as they seek to defy the odds of both the physics world and Stephen’s world as a sufferer of such a debilitating disease.

The Theory of Everything will make its debut as Focus Features’ frontrunner at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. Co-starring Emily Watson and David Thewlis, the motion picture has been directed by James Marsh who joined the project in 2012 after writer, Anthony McCarten, had already been working on its development since 2004.

Stephen Hawking is a prominent and popular figure for those who study and understand science and even for those who do not. Will the biopic do this prevalent and well-respected genius justice? And could the film do Hawking justice enough to place itself in Oscar contention?

US audiences will be able to find out on 7 November and the UK will have a chance upon its 2 January 2015 release.

Watch the trailer here.
