The Theory of Everything early buzz

Eddie Redmayne made Stephen Hawking cry. And he’ll probably make you cry, too, if the early buzz on The Theory of Everything is to be believed.

The James Marsh-directed drama chronicles Hawking’s life from young adulthood, with a particular focus on his relationship to his now-ex-wife Jane. The film itself has gotten generally positive reviews from its TIFF premiere this weekend, but Redmayne and Felicity Jones‘ performances as the devoted couple already have critics murmuring “Oscar.” Hit the jump to get The Theory of Everything early buzz.

Men, Women & Children trailer
Jason Reitman‘s latest film Men, Women & Children has screened at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, and we have compiled the tweets coming out of the first Press & Industry screening. Its a mix of mostly positive (18 people) but also negative (10 people), with some critics like Owen Gleiberman and Ed Douglas touting it as a complex return to form while others like Jeff Wells calling it “soulless” and Ben Lyons leaving the screening tweeting that the film made him “very, very angry…”. The public premiere happens at the Ryerson theatre tonight, and I expect we’ll see a more positive response from the non critic/industry audience.

Many didn’t respond to Reitman’s last film Labor Day, which I enjoyed – connecting with the coming of age stuff, which was filmed near my hometown and set in the period of my upbringing. But unlike Jason’s previous films, Labor Day didn’t have a lot to say about us. I’m excited for Men, Women & Children because it looks like its more in line with what I connected to in his previous films. You can read all of the compiled tweets and reviews after the jump.

When we heard he’d be joined by Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Amy Ryan, Emma Stone and Naomi Watts, the film became anticipated. Then we heard it would be directed by Alejandro González Inarritu, in one single take, it became one of our most anticipated films of the year. (That trailer didn’t hurt either.)

Now that film, Birdman, is out there. It had its premiere at the Venice Film Festival and the reviews were overwhelmingly, almost embarrassingly positive. Read some early Birdman reviews below. Read More »
