Eddie Redmayne is transformed for his new starring role as a transgender pioneer in The Danish Girl.

Ok, so the movie might not hit UK cinemas until New Year's Day 2016, but that hasn't stopped us being seriously excited already!

Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne has taken on the role of transgender pioneer Lili Elbe, and has undergone an amazing transformation with a face of 1920s style make-up and styled hair in the first film poster alongside co-star Alicia Vikander.

The Danish Girl is based on a true, historical novel which tells the story of Lili (Eddie Redmayne), who was originally called Einar, a landscape painter who discovered she was a woman after posing in women's clothes for her wife.

With the support of wife Gerda (Alicia Vikander) Einar had one of the first gender reassignment surgeries in the world, and lived out the rest of her life as Lili Elbe.

And if the superstar leading cast and exciting plot aren't enough, the film is being directed by Tom Hooper, who was also in the director's chair for Les Miserables and The King's Speech. So it's fair to say audiences are expecting something pretty special!
