Playing Hawking a Complex Equation for Redmayne

eddie redmayne theory of everything

TORONTO (AP) — Time is relative, especially for young actors tasked with playing brilliant theoretical physicists. Eddie Redmayne estimates that the euphoria of being cast as Stephen Hawking for the film "The Theory of Everything" lasted a millisecond. Then came the overwhelming fear. "And that fear remained the whole way through the process," Redmayne said in an interview earlier this fall. The gentle, freckled 32-year-old British actor was asked to not only lead a film for the first time, but to play a mathematical genius across decades of physical degeneration — all under the watchful gaze of said mathematical geni... more

'Interstellar' filmmaker Christoper Nolan on His Robots

LOS ANGELES (AP) — In his secrecy-shrouded sci-fi extravaganza "Interstellar," filmmaker Christopher Nolan isn't just taking audiences to outer space. He's also sending a couple of robots along for the ride — and they're just not on board to sweep the floors. "The idea was that they'd been designed to put humans at ease during extended periods of time," said "Interstellar" screenwriter Jonathan Nolan . "They were originally conceived as Marines and programmed to engender the kind of comradery that a Marine would, so they've been programmed with a sense of humor and variable levels of honesty." The sleek gr... more

'Warsaw Uprising' Commemorates 1944 Rebellion Against Nazis

warsaw uprising 2

Filmmaker Jan Komasa described the Warsaw Uprising -- the ill-fated 63-day struggle led by the Polish resistance Home Army to liberate the city from Nazi occupation -- as "a massacre." "Everybody thought it would only take three days to beat the Germans," said Komasa, director of the Polish film "Warsaw Uprising," which opens Friday. "Everyone expected the Western countries and the Russians to help. Hitler apparently wanted to destroy Warsaw and kill everybody." Komasa's film, which coincides with the 70th anniversary of the surrender of the Home Army, was culled from six hou... more

Movie Review: ‘Before I Go to Sleep’

nicole kidman before i go to sleep

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Reteamed once again with Colin Firth , Nicole Kidman stars as an amnesia victim whose brain resets back to 13 years ago after each night's slumber in the decidedly average psychological thriller "Before I Go to Sleep." Writer-director Rowan Joffe's adaptation of S.J. Watson's bestseller honors the lurid spirit of the page-turner enough to satisfy fans, but he doesn't transmute the material into something richer and deeper. The film opens with an extreme close-up on the bloodshot eye of Christine Lucas (Kidman), a woman who wakes up every morning and doesn't recognize her own bedroo... more

Movie Review: ‘Nightcrawler’

jake gyllenhaal nightcrawler

The most frightening thing about Jake Gyllenhaal in "Nightcrawler" — even more than those sallow, sunken cheeks, those googly eyes, and that unkempt hair tied into a greasy bun — is his smile. They invented the word "creepy" for that smile, a goofy, confident grin that reaches its full breadth just when you're starting to realize how deranged this guy really is. Gyllenhaal's bold, committed performance makes "Nightcrawler" one of the most entertaining movies of the year — though hardly the most profound. The film seeks to convey the seaminess of local TV news, summed up by the phrase "If it ble... more
