The Aeronauts review – charming balloon adventure way up where the air is clear

Theory of Everything stars Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones reunite for a sweet tale of daredevil balloonists in Victorian England

Some tremendous effects and sweet-natured romantic imaginings lift this Victorian ballooning adventure – as Mary Poppins might have put it – up through the atmosphere, up where the air is clear.

It’s a likably unworldly flight of fancy, or semi-factuality. Tom Harper directs, reuniting Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones, who last appeared together in 2014 as Stephen Hawking and his wife Jane in The Theory of Everything. Now Redmayne is once again playing a scientist, the real-life pioneer James Glaisher, here dead set on proving to his pompous, mutton-chopped and top-hat-wearing colleagues that meteorology is more than a fad and if he can only get way up in one of these outrageously dangerous hot-air balloons he can make some some serious atmospheric readings.

Jones plays a fictional aeronaut, Amelia (as in Earhart) Wren,

‘The Aeronauts’ to get full UK theatrical window despite Amazon strategy shift (exclusive)
Film will get full, 16-week window after its UK roll out on Nov 6.

Tom Harper’s The Aeronauts, which debuted to strong reviews at Telluride this week, will receive a full, 16-week theatrical window for its UK release, despite Amazon’s decision to condense the film’s cinema run in all other territories.

Entertainment One pre-bought UK and Ireland rights at an early stage on the title, and confirmed to Screen that it never intended to deviate from rolling out the film widely, with a full window.

That’s despite the news which broke last month that Amazon was realigning its strategy on The Aeronauts,

‘The Aeronauts’ Trailer: Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones Reunite for Hot Air Balloon Adventure
Following the Oscar-winning success of “The Theory of Everything,” Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones are back together on the big screen for another potential awards contender inspired by a true story. “The Aeronauts” re-teams Redmayne and Jones for a daring hot air balloon adventure based on the life of English aeronaut and astronomer James Glaisher. The movie is the latest directorial effort from Tom Harper, who was most recently in theaters this summer with the Jessie Buckley-starring “Wild Rose.” Harper is also known for directing episodes of “Peaky Blinders” and the 2016 “War & Peace” miniseries.

Amazon’s official synopsis for “The Aeronauts” reads: “Set in 1862, the movie follow wealthy young widow Amelia Wren (Jones) and ambitious scientist James Glaisher (Redmayne) as they mount a balloon expedition to fly higher than anyone in history. This is a journey to the very edge of existence, where the air is thin and

Neil deGrasse Tyson Backlash Is Proof He Should Not Be the Only Famous Scientist on TV

Neil deGrasse Tyson Backlash Is Proof He Should Not Be the Only Famous Scientist on TV
Neil Degrasse Tyson’s cultural value needs company. As a popularizer of science, Tyson introduced audiences to the wonders of the universe with an approachable tone that expanded its appeal beyond physics classrooms and laboratories. Like Carl Sagan before him, Tyson excels at translating the dense field of astrophysics into riveting cosmic terms that anyone can appreciate.

Lately, however, Tyson’s folk-hero status has hobbled, as various developments — from sexual harassment charges to insensitive tweets — have made him more of a burden for the field. None of this has changed Tyson’s underlying value in bringing scientific concepts to the masses, but the backlash is a clear reminder that he shouldn’t be the only famous scientist on TV.

Over the weekend, Tyson issued a bizarre tweet in response to America’s mass shooting debate, listing a range of other death statistics — from suicide to car accidents — and concluding that

Report: Jeffrey Epstein Aimed to Seed Human Race With His DNA

Financier and alleged sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein confided to prominent scientists and businessmen a vision of seeding the human race with his DNA by impregnating women at his sprawling New Mexico ranch. The disgraced hedge fund manager, who was charged in July with sex trafficking dozens of underage girls as young as 14, had discussed the idea since the early 2000s at assorted dinners and gatherings — outlining a plan wherein women would be inseminated with his sperm and birth his children, four unnamed sources told The New York Times.

Big Bang Theory: 10 Most Underrated Supporting Characters

For an insular group of nerds, the characters of The Big Bang Theory sure have an impressive social circle. How many of us got to play "Words With Friends" with Stephen Hawking? Or can claim Wil Wheaton as a mortal enemy?

With the show's influx of celebrity guest stars, it's easy to forget about some of the supporting characters not played by household names.

Brian Eno: Astronomer Honors Producer With Asteroid Named ‘Eno’
It’s a privilege befitting an ambient icon who once soundtracked a moon landing documentary: On Tuesday, the science festival Starmus V presented Brian Eno with a certificate commemorating that Asteroid 81948 has been named in his honor.

Astronomer Marc Buie of the Southwest Research Institute, who discovered the asteroid, presented the certificate. He selected Eno for the honor in conjunction with the International Astronomical Union and the Minor Planet Centre.

Previously known as “81948 (2000 OM69),” the asteroid is now dubbed the equally long “Brian Peter George St John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno” (or,

Hollywood Flashback: Stephen Hawking Guest-Starred on 'Big Bang Theory' in 2012

Hollywood Flashback: Stephen Hawking Guest-Starred on 'Big Bang Theory' in 2012
In the long history of TV guest stars, there was never a cameo by someone smarter than Stephen Hawking. And the physicist did quite a few of them.

In 1993, he appeared on a Star Trek: The Next Generation episode playing poker with Data, Albert Einstein and Isaac Newton. (Hawking, holding four sevens, crushes Einstein.) As an animated character, he did four episodes of The Simpsons (the program he called "the best show on American television") and in one decides to steal Homer's "donut-shaped universe" idea.

After his death in 2018 at 76, The Hollywood Reporter quoted showrunner ...

10 Most Memorable Times A Celebrity Played Themselves In A Movie

In television, celebrity guest stars are quite common. It doesn’t feel out of place when Sheldon Cooper runs into someone like James Earl Jones, Stan Lee, or Stephen Hawking because The Big Bang Theory is a hugely popular show and can, therefore, attract big-name guests. Audiences forgive the lack of realism because we enjoy seeing celebrities poke fun at themselves.

However, a movie needs more staying power than an episode of television. So, if there’s a celebrity cameo in a movie, it has to be carefully selected or it’ll quickly date the movie.

Space oddities: why the Futurama reboot went from sci-fi to sci-why

The show was axed and remade, moving to Comedy Central and leaving its comedic legacy behind

Matt Groening could do no wrong in 1999. The Simpsons was still both witty and money-spinning, and he could get any project he wanted greenlit – even a sci-fi comedy cartoon called Futurama. The show began with New Year’s Eve 1999, when disillusioned pizza delivery boy Philip J Fry fell into a cryogenic vat, only to awaken 1,000 years later in “the world of tomorrow!”. His excitement at his new life was tempered by finding out everyone in the future has a career assigned by the government, and his job was to be a delivery boy for Planet Express – motto: “Our crew is replaceable, your package isn’t!”

On board the Planet Express spaceship with the immature and slovenly Fry were cyclops orphan Leela, drunken robot Bender, clumsy intern Amy and incompetent alien medical lobster Dr Zoidberg:

‘See You Yesterday’ Film Review: Sprightly Teen Time-Travel Comedy Reveals Dark Truths

‘See You Yesterday’ Film Review: Sprightly Teen Time-Travel Comedy Reveals Dark Truths
Stefon Bristol’s debut feature “See You Yesterday,” which has Spike Lee as one of its producers, revolves around the ingenuity of two 16-year-old friends, Claudette and Sebastian (Dante Crichlow), who are working on a homemade time machine in Sebastian’s garage. The effects in this movie are as charmingly lo-fi as the backpack modules that they wear to travel back in time for 10-minute intervals.

See You Yesterday” nods to some of its 1980s forebears by having Michael J. Fox turn up as one of their teachers at the Bronx High School of Science. Claudette is reading Stephen Hawking’s “A Brief History of Time” in his class, while Fox has his nose buried in Octavia Butler’s “Kindred,” a popular time travel novel from 1979. When Claudette tells Fox’s Mr. Lockhart about her time-travel backpack project, which she hopes will get her into MIT, Bristol keeps his camera

Claire Denis on How Stephen Hawking Inspired 'High Life'

Claire Denis on How Stephen Hawking Inspired 'High Life'
That Claire Denis’ latest title predicted the look of a black hole was both lucky and the result of years’ worth of research. When a team of more than 200 astronomers unveiled the first-ever image of a black hole 55 million light years away on April 1, the slightly off-focus image showed a dark circle wreathed in brilliant orange light, the color astronomers chose to represent the hole’s bright gas emissions. Viewers of High Life, a space drama about a research-cum-suicide mission, could have hardly failed to notice that her film depicts the cosmic whorl with a similarly brilliant orange color,...
