“The Theory of Everything”, which is available on DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow, is brought to life by Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones’s powerful, Oscar-nominated performances. Today, we’re sharing an exclusive look at two scenes that even further illuminate the love story at the heart of the film, but sadly ended up on the cutting-room floor. See these beautiful moments between Stephen Hawking (Redmayne) and Jane Hawking (Jones) unfold, and hear director James Marsh explain why he made the difficult decision not to include them in the final version of the movie.
Oscar®-nominated actor Terrence Howard (2006) and Oscar nominee Felicity Jones will be presenters at this year’s Oscars, show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced today. The Oscars, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, will air on Sunday, February 22, live on ABC.
Howard was nominated for his leading role in 2006’s “Hustle & Flow.” His other films include Oscar-winning Best Picture “Crash” (2004), “Ray” (2004), “Iron Man” (2008), “Prisoners” (2013), “Lee Daniel’s The Butler” (2013) and “St. Vincent” (2014). Howard currently stars in the hit television series “Empire.” His upcoming films include “Term Life” and “Cardboard Boxer.”
Jones is nominated for Actress in a Leading Role for “The Theory of Everything.” Her previous film credits include “The Tempest” (2010), “Like Crazy” (2011), “The Invisible Woman” (2013) and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” (2014).

The gallery at Felicity Jones Fan has just been updated with over 400 Blu-Ray quality screen captures as well as HQ stills and posters of Felicity as Julie from her 2010 British comedy/romance “Cemetery Junction”.
“Whenever I’m in L.A., I’m always either an hour late or two hours early,” Eddie Redmayne says as he sits down at a table at the Los Angeles bistro Republique. “I can’t get anywhere on time.” The actor and his cast mate Felicity Jones are attending a party hosted by Yahoo Style celebrating their film “The Theory of Everything”, which has been nominated for an Oscar for best picture. Redmayne, who is quickly plowing through a large plate of hors d’oeuvres and a small basket of French fries, still hasn’t quite settled into his new role as Hollywood celebrity.
“Does anyone ever feel comfortable in it?” he asks. “How am I doing?” He’s told he looks perplexed. “Yeah,” says the 33-year-old actor. “I am. I’m not going to lie.”
Before “The Theory of Everything” came out last year, both Redmayne and Jones were only moderately recognizable. Redmayne had parts in “My Week With Marilyn” and “Les Miserables” but was far from a household name. Jones, who has been acting since the mid-’90s, has a filmography filled with quirky indies (including two small but powerhouse performances in “Like Crazy” and “The Invisible Woman”, opposite Ralph Fiennes) and, unexpectedly, “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”. “Eddie and I have spent many years auditioning for film and TV projects together, and being turned down together,” Jones says. “And then commiserating together. But this was the first time we’d worked together.”
“The Theory of Everything”, directed by Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker James Marsh, tells the story of Stephen Hawking and his wife Jane, who stood by his side for years as he was ravished by ALS. It’s partially a biopic and partially a love story — albeit ultimately a tragic one that ends in divorce — and it leaves the viewer with a sense of resolute human triumph. It wasn’t a role or a story that Redmayne was ever seeking out, but it’s one that he fully inhabited. His physical, tactile performance has so far won the 33-year-old a Golden Globe, a SAG Award, a Hollywood Film Award, and an Oscar nomination for Best Actor.
As promised, the gallery has just been updated with 297 high-quality images of Felicity Jones from the EE British Academy Film Awards which took place in London last night. Whilst she unfortunately did not win the Best Actress award (which went to Julianne Moore for “Still Alice”), she did receive an award as “The Theory of Everything” won Best British Film, so congratulations to the cast and crew for their achievement!
Just a little while earlier Felicity Jones hit the red carpet at the EE British Academy Film Awards, looking lovely in a Dior Spring 2013 couture dress. Here’s the first look, and of course we will be adding many images over the next day or so.
Last night, Felicity Jones appeared on “The Jonathan Ross Show” to talk about “The Theory of Everything”. She gave a lovely interview, as always, and screen captures from the show have now been added to the gallery.
Felicity Jones was back on British soil last night for the EE British Academy Awards Nominees Party, ahead of the awards ceremony itself which will be happening this evening. Felicity has been nominated for Best Actress for her role in “The Theory of Everything” and we wish her the best of luck – updates regarding the result will be updated as soon as possible.
Relativity Studios and IM Global have set Oct. 30 as the U.S. release date for action-thriller “Autobahn,” starring Nicholas Hoult, Felicity Jones, Anthony Hopkins and Ben Kingsley.

The story involves Hoult’s character scheming to pull a drug heist for an eccentric gangster (played by Kingsley) to pay for his girlfriend’s medical emergency. Hopkins portrays an evil druglord menacing the girlfriend, played by Jones.
IM Global and China’s DMG Entertainment financed the film, with additional financing provided by Sycamore Pictures and Ingenious Media. “Autobahn” was produced by Joel Silver, Ben Pugh and Rory Aitken of 42, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones of Automatik and Daniel Hetzer of Germany’s Action Concept.
