The Danish Girl trailer: Eddie Redmayne eyes a second Oscar

screen-poster

Is it time for Britain's Eddie Redmayne to start clearing a space on those Oscar shelves again? Following his win for The Theory of Everything, in which he stunned as Stephen Hawking, the versatile actor now turns his attention to another remarkable true story in The Danish Girl.

Redmayne plays artist Lili Elbe, who was born as Einar Wegener and became famous as one of the world's first recipients of sexual reassignment surgery. Alicia Vikander plays her devoted wife Gerda and the cast also includes Ben Whishaw and Matthias Schoenaerts. 

With an attention-grabbing ensemble working from the inspirational bestselling book by David Ebershoff and The King's Speech director Tom Hooper calling the shots behind the camera, we could be looking at one of the heavyweight frontrunners in the 2015 awards race. Check out the trailer below.


The Danish Girl
is released on 1st January 2016.
