Eddie Redmayne of Les Miserables fame is almost uncognizable as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything in the first trailer for the new movie.
The autobiographical, inspirational film showcases the world-renowned British physicist's life, including his relationship with Jane Wilde, who would become his first wife in 1965, and how, at age 21, he began to experience symptoms of a paralyzing motor neuron disease that put him in a wheelchair and rendered him unable to talk. Doctors told Hawking he had two years to live and would never speak again.
"But I love him and he loves me. We're going to fight this illness together," Wilde, played by Felicity Jones, says in the trailer.
