Still Alice

Release

Sony Pictures Classics bought the US distribution rights for the film in a low seven figure deal that was announced on September 11, 2014. SPC gave the film a one-week qualifying run for the Oscars starting December 5, 2014, with a wider theatrical release on January 16, 2015.[10][11] The film went into full wide release in the United States on February 27, 2015.[12]

Piracy

The film was part of the confidential data stolen in the Sony Pictures Entertainment hack incident. It was subsequently leaked[13] onto peer-to-peer file sharing websites on November 27, 2014, over a month ahead of its intended public release. Along with it came Fury and three other at-the-time unreleased Sony Pictures films (Annie, Mr. Turner and To Write Love on Her Arms).[14] Within three days of the initial leak, Still Alice had been downloaded by an estimated 103,832 unique IPs.[14]
