When asked whether he’d like to live in an emotionless world, Hoult said, “That obviously would be the easy way out, but no, I like to feel everything, take the highs and the lows.”

Sony Pictures Classic is making sure that Julianne Moore gets that shot at finally nabbing an Oscar.
The corporate-owned art house distributor will release “Still Alice,” the drama that features Moore as a college professor with early-onset Alzheimer’s, in theaters in New York and Los Angeles for a week in December. The distributor will then give the film a more normal release on January 16.
“Still Alice,” written and directed by Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland, was acquired by SPC after its Toronto premiere.
