Sony Pictures Classics is making good on its promise to debut its Toronto acquisition Still Alice this year to qualify the film for an Academy run, announcing this morning that it will open the picture for one week in December on both coasts before releasing the film wider on January 16, 2015.
Spc acquired the Julianne Moore-starring film about a psychologist who faces the early onset of Alzheimer’s this month at the Toronto International Film Festival in what was a low-seven-figure deal from filmmakers Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland. Since premiering in Toronto, the film has gotten a fair amount of buzz for Moore who stars in the film with Alec Baldwin, Kristen Stewart, and Kate Bosworth.
The film is based on the novel of the same name by author Lisa Genova and is produced by Marie Savare, Christine Vachon (Killer Films), Maria Shriver, Emilie Georges, Nicholas Shumaker, Celine Rattray and Trudie Styler. »

There's been barely a moment to breathe since "The Imitation Game," "Birdman" and "The Theory of Everything" showed their wares at Venice, Telluride and Toronto, but there's rarely any rest for the weary during awards season. Three films are making noise in the Best Picture rankings this week and all for different reasons. David Fincher's "Gone Girl" has already received some strong early reviews, but its big closeup will be Friday when it opens the 2014 New York Film Festival and a theater full of prestige pundits finally get to see it. Pre-release polling shows a strong $25 million-plus opening for the big screen adaptation of Gillian Flynn's novel and the flood of reviews this weekend "should" give the film an even bigger boost (no doubt part of 20th Century Fox's plan). "Girl" is one contender that will likely need to solidify its standing from both critical and moviegoer response. »

Ultimately Arnold Schwarzenegger didn't want to be pinned for posterity. When he sat for his official portrait that would hang in California's State Capitol building in Sacramento, the former governor of California was painted wearing a lapel pin with wife Maria Shriver's face on it. A sweet idea, his wife of nearly 25 years and then the first lady of the Golden State remaining close to his heart, despite not being in the frame. But that was then... In 2011, the power couple announced that they were splitting up. Then it was revealed that Schwarzenegger had fathered a son with their former maid. And now, upon the portrait's grand reveal... Shriver's face has been scrubbed »

Arnold Schwarzenegger Portrait Retouched
Schwarzenegger returned to Sacramento on Monday, Sept. 8, to unveil the painting, which was commissioned when he was still in office and, by all appearances, happily married. In 2003, when Schwarzenegger sat for the portrait, he reportedly insisted on wearing a pin featuring Shriver’s face. “It was actually a cute gesture when he had it done,” said former aide Clay Russell.

The drama is based on a 2007 novel from author and neuroscientist Lisa Genova, to which directors Wash Westmoreland and Richard Glatzer said they responded strongly. “(We wanted) the audience connect to Alice throughout her intense emotional journey, and for this to happen, it had to ring true; every moment had to feel completely real,” they said. “Alice has … a rarer form of the disease but movies are often made about the ‘exceptional case’ and we hope this will still allow an emotional access to people with all levels of personal Alzheimer »

Though he lost his parents and both siblings in two separate plane crashes that he survived, Austin Hatch refuses to feel sorry for himself.

Katie Driscoll calls it a campaign - but others might call it a crusade. Either way, for the past two years she has been on a vigorous mission to help cast children and adults with intellectual disabilities or physical differences in advertisements ranging from local to international. "We're a society that's all about inclusion for children," Driscoll, 40, of Palos Park, Illinois, tells People. "But when you look at imagery, you almost never see children with disabilities of any kind." In 2012, she and her friend, Steve English, created a website, Changing the Face of Beauty, to promote the use of special-needs models in mainstream ads. »
