Trailer for Darwin biopic, "Creation"

Here is the trailer of a highly anticipated biopic of Darwin, Creation (hat tip Laelaps). It is adapted from the book, Annie's Box: Charles Darwin, his daughter, and human evolution by Randal Keynes.


Looks fantastic and I think the choice of Paul Bettany as Darwin is excellent. He has already played a pseudo-Darwin character in Peter Weir's excellent, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. In case, you don't remember, here are some stills of Bettany's character, Dr. Stephen Maturin:


And just to be complete, both Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly were in another science-related biopic: A Beautiful Mind.

The release date for Creation is September 25th (only the UK release date is listed - so I'm assuming that the US date would be the same). I see a field trip coming. Visit the movie's official site here.

Have you seen British poet Ruth Padel's wonderful new biography in verse: "Darwin: A Life in Poems"?
