Research: Stephen's new film - Hawking

I happened upon this trailer for the newly released Stephen Hawkings documentary film whilst conducting research into historical figures. The thing I really like about this trailer is it's undeniable superhero charm and Hollywood movie feel, which comes down to the powerful choice of music and shots. It feels like i'm watching a trailer for the new Thor movie rather then Hawkings The Movie. The trailer has intentionally been made to portray that feeling of being super, and is in no way intended to make a fool of Hawking, which I like.

Stephen Hawkings is an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmologyit. Some would come to say that Hawkings is indeed a superhero in his own right, which makes this trailer prove so promising as a great piece of source information for my project.
