As a theoretical physicist, Stephen Hawking isn’t usually one to weigh in on recent movies. But The Theory of Everything is naturally of special interest to him, seeing that it stars Eddie Redmayne as Hawking himself.
For their part, critics have been gushing about Redmayne’s performance. He’s widely considered a shoo-in for an Oscar nomination, and has been ever since the film’s festival debut. But Hawking would know better than anyone whether Redmayne really did a good job — so what did Hawking think? Get the Stephen Hawking Theory of Everything reaction after the jump. Read More »

Kit Harington and Alicia Vikander star in Testament of Youth as friends, and potential lovers, who are separated by the insanity of the First World War. Based on the memoir by Vera Brittain, considered one of the primary accounts of the war from a woman’s perspective, the film follows the dawning independence of Brittain (Vikander), and the relationship she forges with her brother’s friend, played by Harington. In this Testament of Youth UK trailer we’re treated to some glowing pullquotes, but also to many visions of England and Europe during the years before and during the war. This is a much more effective look at the film than the last trailer we saw; have a look below. Read More »

A few weeks ago, we got word that the 1988 Tom Hanks classic Big was being adapted for the small screen by Fox.
