Variety put up an article in which Nicholas’ co-star Kristen Stewart talks about working with him on “Equals”. Nicholas also comments on playing his character.
Drake Doremus’ sci-fi romance “Equals,” which follows two forbidden lovers on their journey to find freedom in a futuristic society that prides itself on having eradicated emotions, had its emotional L.A. premiere at ArcLight Hollywood on Thursday night.
The film, which stars Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult, along with Jacki Weaver, Aurora Perrineau and Tom Stokes, bowed at the Venice International Film Festival last year.
“I was never really a sci-fi nerd, but I was always fascinated with the genre,” Doremus said. “I thought it was an interesting landscape to set a love story and try to doing something warm. Most sci-fi films to me are very cold and very distant and I wanted to make something that was the opposite of that.”
Stewart and Hoult complimented Doremus on his unique approach to helping spark chemistry between the onscreen lovers during rehearsals. “It wasn’t about learning lines,” Stewart said. “It was about breaking down barriers and getting to know each other.”
Hoult still found many complexities in playing a character that “isn’t meant to feel” and “understanding how that changes throughout the movie.” “It’s kind of like these characters have been alive and know how to do everything a human knows how to do, but they don’t feel,” he said. “So, it’s like a baby feeling emotions for the first time, but not knowing how to process them.”
A24 and DirecTV acquired U.S. rights to “Equals,” which is set for a July 15 theatrical release.
Nicholas attended the Los Angeles premiere of his film “Equals” alongside his co-stars Kristen Stewart, Jacki Weaver and director Drake Doremus. Photos of the premiere and the after party have been added to our gallery.

Variety is reporting that Nicholas has joined the voice cast of the upcoming mini series “Watership Down”.
James McAvoy, John Boyega, Nicholas Hoult and Ben Kingsley have joined the voice-cast of Netflix-BBC animated TV miniseries “Watership Down,” based on Richard Adams’ novel.
The four-part show, which will be finished next year, will be available worldwide, outside of the U.K., on Netflix, and on BBC One in the U.K.
Set in the idyllic rural landscape of southern England, the adventure tale follows a band of rabbits on their flight from the intrusion of man and the certain destruction of their home. Led by a stouthearted pair of brothers, they journey forth from their native Sandleford Warren through the harrowing trials posed by predators and adversaries, toward a promised land and a more perfect society.
The series, written by Tom Bidwell (BAFTA-nominated “My Mad Fat Diary”) and directed by Noam Murro (“300: Rise of the Empire”), will star McAvoy (“Filth,” “X-Men”) as Hazel, Hoult (“Mad Max: Fury Road,” “X-Men”) as Fiver, Kingsley (“Shutter Island,” “Iron Man 3”) as General Woundwort, Boyega (“Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens”) as Bigwig, Gemma Arterton (“Made in Dagenham”) as Clover, Miles Jupp (“Rev,” “The Thick of It”) as Blackberry, Freddie Fox (“Pride”) as Captain Holly, Olivia Colman (“The Night Manager,” “The Lobster”) as Strawberry, and Anne-Marie Duff (“Suffragette”) as Hyzenthlay.
The drama is co-directed by Pete Dodd (“Fantastic Mr Fox,” “Frankenweenie”), and produced by Hugo Sands. It is created in CG by an animation team led by Dodd and Sands, and the animation studio Brown Bag Films, based in Dublin.
The series is a co-production between BBC One and Netflix, and produced by 42 and Murro’s company Biscuit Films. It is executive produced by Rory Aitken, Josh Varney, Ben Pugh and Eleanor Moran for 42; Murro for Biscuit Films; and Matthew Read for the BBC. It will be distributed internationally by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
Larry Tanz, VP global television, Netflix, and executive producer, said: “We jumped at the chance to get in early and work alongside the BBC and 42 to bring this classic English tale to our members around the world. This novel presentation of Adam’s work pairs great talent with beautiful animation and will delight existing fans and capture a whole new audience for this timeless story.”
Matthew Read, BBC drama commissioning editor, said: “Before there was ‘Harry Potter’ there was ‘Watership Down,’ Richard Adams’ novel is one of the most successful books of all time and one of the biggest-selling books in history. It is fantastic to have the opportunity to bring a modern-classic to a mainstream BBC One audience with such an incredible roster of actors alongside the talented team overseeing the animation. This fantastic take on the novel will unite the whole family, and bring this classic story to a new generation.”
I have added two new posters of Nicholas from “X-Men: Apocalypse” to the gallery! One is a solo poster of Nicholas as the Beast and the second is an IMAX poster that was recently released.
