From Jon Amiel the Director of The Core and Summersby, comes a film about Charles Darwin’s book “The Origin of Species.” Don’t start yawning yet! Let’s look into this a little bit further into it first. Charlies Darwin changed life as people knew it and it looks like they will be focusing more on the life of Darwin than on his book (which I think everyone knows about but almost no one has read). The human and emotional and side of the character has a chance at being much more interesting that just a look into Darwin making of the book. After all, he is one of history’s ultimate rebels.

The film stars Paul Bettany as Darwin and Jennifer Connelly as his dis-approving and yet loyal wife. The supporting cast includes Jeremy Northam and Toby Jones.

Check out the trailer below…

Synopsis: English naturalist Charles Darwin struggles to find a balance between his revolutionary theories on evolution and the relationship with religious wife, whose faith contradicts his work.

Judging by the stellar cast, I think this movie will be worth seeing just bases on performances.

The film doesn’t have a US release day yet, but it comes out September 25th in the UK.
