Flickering Myth: Jupiter Ascending debuts at Sundance to negative response
In a somewhat strange decision by Warner Bros., last night saw the first public screening of the upcoming blockbuster Jupiter Ascending at the Sundance Film Festival, which was met with a muted reaction, reports Variety....
Neville Kiser, a Hollywood screenwriter...: “I actually liked it,” he said. “But the Sundance context is weird. There were so many people in the audience scoffing and sneering. They are forgetting they are watching a movie targeted primarily to teenage boys. I’m sure those 15-year-old boys, and hopefully girls, will like it.” Kiser also said that the film screening at Sundance probably hurt the film even more due to the highbrow nature of the more

iHeartRADIO & KTLA 5 TV interview - Live Facebook Q&A with Eddie - Jan. 28, 2015

In his review of “The Theory of Everything,” the WSJ’s Joe Morgenstern called Redmayne’s performance brilliant. He wrote:
