The first trailer for The Theory of Everything, has been released, and features Les Miserables star Eddie Redmayne as legendary astrophysicist Stephen Hawking.

The drama charts Hawking's life from his days as a brilliant student at Cambridge, where he met and fell in love with Jane Wilde, played the Felicity Jones, through his devastating diagnosis of Lou Gehrig's disease at the age of 21, and beyond.

James Marsh, who won an Oscar for the critically acclaimed documentary Man on Wire in 2009, helms the emotional drama, which premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival next month.

The film is based on Jane Wilde's 2007 memoir, Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen, which reveals details of her marriage to, and eventual divorce from, Hawking.

Starring with Redmayne and Jones are British acting legends Emily Watson, David Thewlis, and Charlie Cox.

The film will be released in Ireland on January 2, 2015.
