When The Theory of Everything premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, CraveOnline was first line to praise the “fantastic performances” of Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones, who play renowned physicist Stephen Hawking and his first wife, Jane Hawking. Six months later, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences agreed with us, nominated Redmayne and Jones for Best Actor and Best Actress, and bestowing The Theory of Everything with three more Oscar nominations, for Best Original Score, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Picture.
If you missed The Theory of Everything in theaters, now’s your chance to catch up on the acclaimed drama from Oscar-winning director James Marsh (Man on Wire). The film arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on February 17th with special features including a director’s commentary and deleted scenes, and in this CraveOnline exclusive clip, we’re showing off a bit of both.
The above clip features a deleted scene of the Oscar-nominated actors, featuring a commentary track by director James Marsh about why the scene was necessary to shoot, but why it ultimately didn’t make the final cut of The Theory of Everything. Take a look, and be sure to check out The Theory of Everything when it hits home video on February 17, 2015!
