Eddie on 'The Aeronauts' in a Q&A in Lifestyle Asia

Eddie Redmayne was interviewed by Randy Lai at The Peninsula Shanghai when he spent
some time in Asia in April for the Planet Omega opening.  He talked about style, Omega, and
his career, and also talked about his new movie 'The Aeronauts'. Here are a few quotes.

"The film that I’ve just wrapped on — coming out later in the year, called The Aeronauts
— enabled me to play a guy called James Glaisher. He was one of the first people to reach
the upper atmosphere via hot air balloon. When I was preparing for it, I realized his father
had actually been a watchmaker, and in that moment the knowledge I gleaned from my
time with OMEGA enabled me to become the consummate method actor [laughs]. If we
look at it from the perspective of era, I’d be very interested in playing an individual from
the 1920s. I’ve already done that a bit with Fantastic Beasts but the atmosphere of the
Roaring Twenties — in large part because of the fashion and energy — makes it a period
whose historical figures I’d be really interested in revisiting."
(he was asked about one historical figure he would choose to play)

"So nowadays we would go up in hot air balloons, but in the 19th century the equivalent
was gas-powered: just massive balloons filled with flammable gases of helium and hydrogen.
It was that kind of balloon that [the production team on The Aeronauts] built one of, plus
sandbags. What’s amazing is — it’s silent by the way — you’re in this little wicker basket
and just by pouring sand out you begin to float up, and the silence is dumbfounding.
It feels incredibly surreal: You’re essentially in a little fire basket, and then suddenly you’re
in the air. But because you drift up, it doesn’t feel scary, although you’re at the will of the
elements. You can’t guide where the balloon is going — all you can do is go higher by
throwing more sand out. And so that idea of having to surrender to something was pretty
extraordinary. Also, there’s a weird quietness when you descend for the first time. You pull
a rope which lets out some of the balloon’s gas, but you can’t be exactly sure where you’re
going to land. I remember as we were coming down, we cascaded into a set of trees and I
went from being totally at peace to experiencing the most terrifying two and a half seconds
of my life! There was quite a bit of sensory overload during the making of that film."

The article is very interesting, loved reading the Omega stories as well. Eddie also
talked about his most important career milestone. "The official answer is probably
when I was fortunate enough to win an Oscar for Theory of Everything — that felt like
an incredible thing. But weirdly, (I think he said) I often think, that the first ever was
the play that I did about Mark Rothko. It started here in London and eventually
moved to New York. On Broadway, it began as a very small play (with Alfred Molina)
and kind of grew and grew to become this major thing. Obviously, I love acting, but that
particular play was also about the art world — which is what I’d studied at university
— and that conflation of things which I was passionate about was pretty special."

have helped create a voracious appetite for content which has given a 
voice to stories that would never have been told." (via @dentsuaegisUK)

Eddie is genuinely excited about wonder as a way to look up above everyday life.

Eddie about seeing the snapshots 

Eddie mentioned that in order to keep changing people perception of you, you need to keep
challenging your own perception of yourself and keep fighting. (via @sandrucola)

on the opportunities you have and might only get once in a lifetime." (via @toushenne)

New still from The Aeronauts :)

Scientist James Glaisher (Eddie Redmayne) and pilot Amelia Wren (Felicity Jones) 
are fighting for survival on the new official image released today.

Photo by Robert Viglasky  "It was an amazing experience
to work on this wonderful project with great cast&crew!"

In an interview for PORTER, Felicity Jones talked about the movie and the
stunts with all manner of aerial acrobatics, she and Eddie performed themselves.
“I thought it was going to be a very safe period drama, then it turned into a
Victorian version of The Revenant,...I loved it,..I’d be hanging off the basket
and everyone would be asking if I was okay, and I’d be like, ‘This is a dream
for me. This is what I’ve wanted to do my entire life – a bit of rough and tumble.’” 

The Aeronauts marks the first Amazon Studios film to be released on Imax's large
format screens. "The Aeronauts is a spectacular movie featuring emotionally
engaging performances and edge-of-your-seat action...We're thrilled to join Imax
in showcasing this one-of-a-kind film in such a grand format. We look forward to
giving our customers an unforgettable theatrical experience high above the clouds,"
Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, said in a statement. (source: THR)
"Tom (Harper) designed this movie for the Imax screen and the result is going
to blow audiences away. This film, inspired by incredible true events, offers
heart-pounding intense sequences that are woven so wonderfully with the beauty,
scale and emotion of these two characters as they go on their epic journey,"
Imax president of Imax Entertainment Megan Colligan said in her own statement.
