His ideas have fascinated Errol Morris, he’s even been portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch, and now this fall, Stephen Hawking‘s story will once again return to the big screen with The Theory of Everything. Coming from James Marsh (Man on Wire, Shadow Dancer), ahead of a Toronto International Film Festival premiere, the first trailer has landed today.

This take follows Eddie Redmayne as the genius, falling for Cambridge student Jane Wilde (Felicity Jones), before getting diagnosed with motor neuron disease as a young adult. The trailer sells a sweeping romance primed for awards season, but hopefully there’s more under the surface with Marsh at the helm. Also starring David Thewlis and Emily Watson, check out the trailer below.

Starring Eddie Redmayne (“Les Misérables”) and Felicity Jones (“The Amazing Spider-Man 2”), this is the extraordinary story of one of the world’s greatest living minds, the renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, who falls deeply in love with fellow Cambridge student Jane Wilde. Once a healthy, active young man, Hawking received an earth-shattering diagnosis at 21 years of age. With Jane fighting tirelessly by his side, Stephen embarks on his most ambitious scientific work, studying the very thing he now has precious little of – time. Together, they defy impossible odds, breaking new ground in medicine and science, and achieving more than they could ever have dreamed. The film is based on the memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen, by Jane Hawking, and is directed by Academy Award winner James Marsh (“Man on Wire”).

The Theory of Everything opens on November 7th.
