Albert Einstein series Genius starring Geoffrey Rush releases new trailer

For such an enigmatic figure as Albert Einstein, it is peculiar that we haven't really had a straight up epic biopic about him (unless you count YOUNG EINSTEIN, which I do). So, while not a film, National Geographic is going to release an epic miniseries about Einstein's life, from producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer, and starring Geoffrey Rush as an older Einstein (with Johnny Flynn playing the young Einstein part, popularized by Yahoo Serious).

Anyway, here's an extended trailer, giving us a first look at the series:

Wow. Looked a lot more intense than I was anticipating. It also looks like it's going to fall prey to a lot of the "biopic tropes" that the underrated WALK HARD ribbed so viciously (i.e. lines like, "...for an expert on the universe, you don't know the first thing about people." Oof). Hopefully it's just the way the trailer was edited, because Einstein was indeed a fascinating character, and it would be nice to see his story done justice.

Time is an illusion, nonetheless our societies are run by that illusion, thus the series will be coming out later this year.

Extra Tidbit: Favorite Einstein quote: "Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe."
