theory of everything trailerWe're all familiar with Stephen Hawking's incredible theories about the nature of the universe and his perseverance against motor neurone disease despite all odds. However, "Theory of Everything" takes on a softer side of Hawking's story, that of his early years at Cambridge, the courtship of his first wife Jane, and their journey together as Stephen is diagnosed and given two years to live.

Eddie Redmayne stars as Stephen as he goes from a vibrant college student to a brilliant adult who goes beyond everyone's wildest expectations -- not just by living, but by thriving, having a family, and continuing his work as a physicist. Felicity Jones co-stars as his wife Jane; the movie is based upon the real Jane Hawking's memoir, "Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen." Oscar-winner James Marsh ("Man on Wire," "Project Nim," "Shadow Dancer") directs this glossy-looking drama, which is getting its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month.

"The Theory of Everything" opens in theaters November 7.
