Sony Pictures Classics released the first trailer for 'Still Alice' starring Kristen Stewart, Julianne Moore and Alec Baldwin.
The film is currently in limited release in New York and Los Angeles in order to qualify for the upcoming awards season nominations.
Moore is already receiving Best Actress nominations for her role as "Dr. Alice Howland, a mother of three who learns she has early-onset Alzheimer's disease. The film focuses on Alice and her family as they process the news." (THR) Stewart is also receiving critical acclaim in the role of her daughter who is the one who stands by her mother during this time. Sony released her first "For Your Consideration" Oscar banner on Monday in honor of her fans. Check out the trailer above. 'Still Alice' is set for wide theatrical release on January 16th.
Sony Classics is showing that they are seriously standing behind Kristen Stewart for an Oscar nomination with the release of a new Oscar promotion banner. Sony Classics tweeteda message to Stewart's fans Monday stating, "This one goes out to all you Kristen Stewart fans out there #StillAlice." And the crowd goes wild. It's okay, breathe in and breathe out. Stewart's strong performance in 'Still Alice' gives her a chance among other strong performances this year to get a possible Oscar nod for Best Supporting Actress. One thing is for sure, Sony is definitely showing that they have her back and fans are grateful. There was a bit of a bump in the road with the early release of the film on the internet due to a major cyber attack committed against Sony a couple weeks ago. The assault included the release of employee information for actors such as Sylvester Stallone, studio secrets, executive salaries etc... Regardless, the film went into limited release in New York and Los Angeles just in time for the Academy Award consideration. The studio is going full steam ahead with the promotion of both Stewart and Julianne Moore who is said to be the front runner for Best Actress for her role as the mother/doctor in the midst of the onset of Alzheimer's. Stewart has been receiving rave reviews for her performance as the caring daughter. Fans keep your fingers crossed. Regardless of the outcome, we're proud of her. Now Sony, lets get that nomination!
