The trailer for The Danish Girl dropped today, and it looks like Eddie Redmayne could very well be in the running for another Best Actor nod.

Redmayne plays transgender artist Lili Elbe, the first person to ever receive gender reassignment surgery. Alicia Vikander will play opposite the British actor as Gerda, Elbe's wife.

The trailer is touching and poignant, a hopeful indication of how the historic life of Eilbe will be portrayed on screen.

Caitlyn Jenner Halloween Costume Has People Very Upset

A Caitlyn Jenner-inspired Halloween costume has a lot of people very angry, calling the $75 costume cruel and insensitive to the transgender community.

A Change.org petition calling for the costume's recall already has about 2,800 signatures. The petition calls the costume transphobic.

"To make a costume out of a marginalized identity reduces that person and community to a stereotype for privileged people to abuse. In this case, if you follow through with production of a Caitlyn Jenner costume, cisgender people will purchase it to make fun of her and our community," the petition reads.

People on Twitter didn't have kind words for the costume either.

But this should really come as no surprise. One of the websites carrying the costume, anytimecostumes.com, has tons of insensitive and frankly, stupid, Halloween costumes. Like this Vampire getting a blow job...

Or this snake (d*ck) charmer...

And this...thing. It's not offensive, but it's quite possibly the most horrifying Halloween costume ever.

In conclusion, don't be a jackass. There are plenty of other Halloween costumes that don't make you look like the worst person ever.
