The Danish Girl premiered on HBO this weekend

Premiere Friday, August 26th at 9/8c
The Danish Girl on HBO

INT. ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS, GREAT HALL, NIGHT A spectacular event. An orchestra plays and people dance. Ulla’s party drink and laugh. Gerda and Lili hang back a little, observing. There’s a circle of men in tuxedos nearby. One glances across at Lili. Lili looks away, blushing. EINAR/LILI: People are looking. 
GERDA: Well you’re a pretty girl, you’ll have to get used to that. (But she sees Lili’s really uncomfortable)
GERDA (CONT’D) (cont’d) It’s fine. You’re just feeling self-conscious…

The heartbreaking scene, deleted from The Theory of Everything

The most heartbreaking scene in my opinion, which is one of Eddie Redmayne's favorites isn't in the final version of the movie. James Marsh chose to delete it, because he didn't want the film to be too sad. Fortunately it can be found on the DVD and Blu-ray. This is where Stephen walks on the river bank after his diagnosis. Eddie's acting is breathtaking.

I participate in the #30DaysOfEddieRedmayne challenge launched by Eddie Redmayne Spain on Twitter. This scene was one of my choices, when I was thinking about which is the most heartbreaking scene of Eddie. There are so many. Finally I chose a scene from Black Death and posted some gifs from it on tumblr here.

Precious moments from Oscars 2015 - throwback

"Thank you – I don’t I’m capable of articulating quite how I feel right now but please know this – I am fully aware of that I am lucky, lucky man, – This Oscar – wow! –this Oscar, this belongs to all of those people around the world, battling ALS, – It belongs to one exceptional family: Stephen, Jane, Jonathan and the Hawking children. – I will be its custodian. I promise you I will be its custodian and I will promise you I will look after him. I will polish him. I will answer his beck and call. I will wait on him hand and foot. – But I would not be here were it not for an extraordinary troupe of people. My staggering partner in crime, Felicity Jones. My ferocious and yet incredibly kind director, James Marsh. Working Title, Focus, Lisa and Anthony, Nina and my ingenious team of Dallas, Josh, Gene, Jason, Elan, Carl, Britney and Carrie and Pip. – Now, finally, please, this is so extraordinary. I just want to thank my family and you, Hannah, my wife. I love you so much. We have a new fellow coming to share our apartment. Thank you.!!"(x)

Lichfield Cathedral - Before Action installation highlights

Luxmuralis highlights from Before Action installation at Lichfield Cathedral
with poetry readings from Eddie Redmayne.

Eddie Redmayne has lent his support to an exhibition at Lichfield Cathedral to commemorate the 
Battle of the Somme. Visitors could see him reciting four war poems. Part of the exhibition also 
involved light projections on the walls and floor of the Cathedral. - BBC News video here

“By all the days that I have lived 
Make me a solider, Lord.”

By all the glories of the day,
And the cool evening's benison, 
By that last sunset touch that lay, 
Upon the hills when day was done, 
By beauty lavishly outpoured, 
And blessings carelessly received, 
By all the days that I have lived, 
Make me a soldier, Lord.

By all of man's hopes and fears, 
And all the wonders poets sing, 
The laughter of unclouded years, 
And every sad and lovely thing;
By the romantic ages stored
With high endeavour that was his, 
By all his mad catastrophes 
Make me a man, O Lord.

I, that on my unfamiliar hill 
Saw with uncomprehending eyes 
A hundred of thy sunsets spill 
Their fresh and sanguine sacrifice, 
Ere the sun swings his noonday sword 
Must say good-bye to all of this;- 
By all delights that I shall miss, 
Help me to die, O Lord.

“And soon the slow, stray blood came creeping
From the intruding lead, like ants on track.”

“Who knows? Who hopes? Who troubles? Let it pass!
He sleeps. He sleeps less tremulous, less cold,
Than we who wake, and waking say Alas!”

Under his helmet, up against his pack, 
After so many days of work and waking, 
Sleep took him by the brow and laid him back. 

There, in the happy no-time of his sleeping, 
Death took him by the heart. There heaved a quaking 
Of the aborted life within him leaping, 
Then chest and sleepy arms once more fell slack. 

And soon the slow, stray blood came creeping 
From the intruding lead, like ants on track. 
Whether his deeper sleep lie shaded by the shaking 
Of great wings, and the thoughts that hung the stars, 
High-pillowed on calm pillows of God's making, 
Above these clouds, these rains, these sleets of lead, 
And these winds' scimitars, 
-Or whether yet his thin and sodden head 
Confuses more and more with the low mould, 
His hair being one with the grey grass 
Of finished fields, and wire-scrags rusty-old, 
Who knows? Who hopes? Who troubles? Let it pass! 
He sleeps. He sleeps less tremulous, less cold, 
Than we who wake, and waking say Alas!

Fantastic Beasts 'Olympics' Trailer and more

New Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them extended TV spot debuted during Olympic broadcast!

"They’re not actually vintage," Redmayne told Condé Nast Traveler at the OMEGA House Opening Night event at the 2016 Rio Olympics on August 6. "I wish there was some kind of wondrous story. But, I have a couple of Globe-Trotter cases and they just look like classic, simple suitcases."...
"There was a slightly embarrassing moment when I went for a meeting with David Yates," revealed Redmayne. "I didn’t know anything about what the film was, but I went with my little suitcase because its what I carry my work in." 
He added, "As he began to tell me the story of the film, he said there would be a suitcase that was going to be an essential element to my character. I was then really embarrassed that he might think I’d turned up dressed as the character in costume. But the cases are so durable, and they get better with age." In fact, the suitcases are so durable that the Danish Girl star even uses them as impromptu furniture. "You can multi-task on the cases and even sit on them," he noted. "If there’s no room on a tube platform you can just sit down. It’s quite a malleable thing."

...‘Eddie and I had great chemistry right away,...We improvised in character at the first audition and I think that really helped me get the part.’ Dan is a comedian as well, so off-the-cuff material comes to him naturally. ‘I was really comfortable with [Eddie]. It really matters to have someone his character gets along with. Jacob had to be someone likable enough to get under Newt’s skin and make him start to think there’s more to life than magical creatures.’
According to Dan, the unique pairing between his and Eddie’s characters is obvious from the moment they get into costume. Eddie gets into Newt's slightly-too-short-for-him trousers, his peacock blue jacket, has his hair arranged to one side and grabs his magical case. 
Meanwhile Fogler dons Jacob's not perfectly fitting three-piece suit with a grey waistcoat and red tie, strokes his moustache and has his hair parted and gelled. They’re an unlikely pair and that’s all part of the charm. 
‘Once we get in costume, and we’re standing together, there’s definitely a Laurel and Hardy thing going on,’ says Dan. ‘Or maybe Abbott and Costello. Sherlock and Watson, even! Just from a collective unconscious standpoint, the audience could imprint their favorite duo onto us and it works really nicely.’ 
Newt and Jacob duck and weave through the film’s suspenseful plot, yet somehow maintain that lightness between them. ‘It’s like music,’ says Dan. ‘Eddie’s playing this really delightful, classically trained, soulful sound and I’m throwing some Brooklyn jazz over the top of it and it sounds good.’ 
Dan tells me this film is his ‘big break’. It’s the coolest, scariest project he’s worked on and alongside Eddie Redmayne, no less. Back when Dan was auditioning for the part, Eddie had just won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance in The Theory of Everything. 
Affectionately he says, ‘I’m a fan of his. It was just really great to be around an actor who is going to be knighted some day.It’s amazing to be surrounded by people who make you better. I feel like this was, by far, the best creative experience I’ve ever had and it’s the best work I’ve ever done. I’m so excited for it to just come out already!’

...The fall issue of Entertainment Weekly revealed the Harry Potter author viewed a very rough cut of the first installment all by herself in a private screening room somewhere in the UK, and gave her thoughts to Yates about it beyond the Twitter update she posted.
On J.K. Rowling's first screening of Fantastic Beasts this past spring:
J.K. Rowling went into the screening room, alone. director David Yates waited outside. The situation was pretty unusual. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them wasn’t anywhere close to finished, and Yates typically would never show a cut of a film that’s full of crude animation to somebody of the Harry Potter author’s importance, but he wanted to know if his team was on the right track. “We were all very nervous,” Yates recalls of this April screening. “We waited and waited.” When Rowling finally emerged, she found Yates in his editing room, where she made him wait some more. For about a minute, she couldn’t say anything. “The film is very emotional,” Yates explains. “The end, in particular, is quite tender and moving.” And then? “She was very happy.”
After the screening, Rowling did of course give some notes to Yates about the project, on how better to fit it into her Wizarding World.
