There’s a special sensibility that James Marsh brings as the director of ‘The Theory of Everything,’ which, I suspect, has a lot to do with his success as a documentary filmmaker. Marsh won an Oscar for directing ‘Man on Wire’ – a documentary detailing Philippe Petit’s high-wire walk between the two World Trade Center towers – and now he’s back on everyone’s awards radar with his Stephen Hawking biopic, ‘The Theory of Everything.’

Felicity Jones in ‘The Theory of Everything’ is a revelation of sorts. Think about how many times a biopic has been done and the lead female character is written off in reviews as “So and so was great in a thankless role.” Ignoring the cliché of the word “thankless,” that’s almost become a trope in movies like this: The “thankless” role for a woman. But, that’s what’s so fascinating about Jones in ‘The Theory of Everything,’ not only is she Great with a capital G playing the role of Stephen Hawking’s first wife, Jane Hawking, an argument could also be made that Jones is the true lead of this movie. Put another way: There are a lot of thanks to go around.

This is why awards season is stupid. (Full disclosure: I kind of like awards season sometimes, but it is stupid.) We can’t live in a world in which the media can see ‘The Theory of Everything’ or ‘The Imitation Game’ and just say, “That was a good movie,” then move on with our lives. No, it will be the battle for Best Actor between Eddie Redmayne as Stephen Hawking and Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing.

From the moment Felicity Jones was cast in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' fans have been wondering who she could possibly be playing and everyone came to the same conclusion: she's playing the Spidey antihero and on-and-off-again love interest known as the Black Cat. But now Jones has dropped a few more hints about her mystery role and it sounds like we were all very, very wrong.

It's a tough role, but someone's got to take it. The still-untitled Jack Ryan reboot has its star (Chris Pine) and director/villain (Kenneth Branagh) in place, but it's missing the necessary love-interest character. Now we're hearing that it's between Keira Knightley, Felicity Jones and Evangeline Lilly.
