Thanks to @lets.matos who shared this wonderful photo. (location 1 on the map)
She met Eddie Redmayne in Chicago on Saturday 19th October.

He's in the city filming outdoor scenes for 'The Trial of the Chicago 7'.
I wonder how he will look as Tom Hayden. I didn't find photos yet.

You find one more fanpic, and filming infos in my previous related post.

My First... Eddie Redmayne & Felicity Jones interview with British Vogue

Eddie Redmayne & Felicity Jones share their “firsts” – from kisses to hangovers – with
British Vogue. Discover more about Jones's teenage crush, Redmayne's first job serving
drinks to the cast of Hollyoaks, and his enduring penchant for Disney characters.




“Now I have a really crap memory, so - I don’t know if you were asking Felicity
this question as well - but she might come up with a different answer. It was either
at a mutual friend Polly Stranham’s house. And I remember going and having a
night out there, and I think I met Felicity there, but also then met at an audition…
and the director wanted to see if we had chemistry, so he just told us to stare at
each other, so we just stared at each other.for about an uncomfortable minute
and a half and I never got a callback. So I don’t think that went pretty well.”
- Eddie Redmayne about his first meeting with Felicity Jones



First hangover: "My friend & I stole a bottle of Jack Daniels & got very, very drunk.
My friend ended up being sick over the singles section in Our Price. Left him outside
his front door. I got home & fell asleep & woke up to a cracking hangover with my
mum screaming up the stairs, telling me that my friend’s mum was on the phone and
what had I done to her son."



Film you watched: "It remains one of my favourite films & I just showed it to my daughter
the other day & it was the Disney cartoon of Robin Hood. Still so brilliant. I love it."




I’ve made it moment: "I’d done a television series called Pillars of the Earth and
I came outside on Broadway between two shows and there was a massive poster
for Pillars of the Earth on Times Square. That felt like quite a big deal. Then
trying to do a sort of sly selfie of you in the foreground with the thing in the
background without anyone noticing that you’re taking a photo of yourself and
a big photo of yourself. But actually, I had so much spray tan on in that television
series that I don’t think I looked recognizable anyway."

The Aeronauts news - new stills, videos and set photo

We're going up, up and away with Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne in The Aeronauts. (x)


Amazon Studios scrapped plans for “The Aeronauts” to have a “full theatrical run,” and
will instead release it at small theaters before streaming the film. The about-face stunned
the movie industry and has raised questions of how the company handles films.

“It’s not how it’s intended to be seen,” he (Tom Harper) said in an interview with
The New York Times last month at the Toronto International Film Festival, where
“The Aeronauts” received a standing ovation. “But it’s a changing world, and I want
people to see the movie. If it were up to me, I’d tell them to see it in the theaters.”

Todd Lieberman producer interviewed at the Hamptons International Film Festival, where
The Aeronauts made its East Coast Premiere. He said about the training of the two leads:
"Felicity did an extraordinary amount of acrobatic training. Eddie did hypoxia training,
where he went into an oxygen deprivation booth and simulated what it would feel like
to go up to those heights. Then we had a stunt team that would physically train them
both. Felicity took gas ballooning piloting lessons in Germany and all of us, the entire
crew, not as a unit but in different times, we all went up in balloons to feel like what
it would feel like to be at height without protection around us. Needless to say, they did
a lot of training and we, as a crew, all experienced something."



Director Tom Harper will attend the Chicago premiere of The Aeronauts at the 55th Chicago 
International Film Festival! Harper to give post-screening Q&A on Wednesday, October 23! (x)  
Screening Wednesday, October 23 @ 5:45pm. Tickets on sale now!
I thought probably Eddie will be there, but there's no news about his attendance. 

The Rome Film Festival (October 17-27) has unveiled its 2019 official selection, 
which includes 'The Aeronauts' - screenings are on 18th and 20th October.
I have no news about the attendees.
