Quantic Dream's »Beyond: Two Souls« comes to PC / »The Umbrella Academy« will be back for a second season

During this year's Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Quantic Dream surprisingly announced that they are working on bringing the originally PlayStation-exclusive titles »Beyond: Two Souls« as well as "Heavy Rain" and "Detroit: Become Human" to the PC. Although there are no specific release dates yet, they are aiming to have all three games available for purchase via the Epic Games Store in the course of the year. While the move comes not long after Chinese internet giant NetEase invested in the French studio with the goal of reaching a larger global audience in January, both announcements represent a dramatic shift.

"David Cage and I have planned the next evolution of Quantic Dream very carefully," Guillaume de Fondaumière, the studio's co-CEO and head of publishing, told The Verge. "The move to PC constitutes our studio's first effort to develop non PlayStation exclusive games in over 13 years, but also an opportunity to gradually engage the team on multiple projects at the same time. The most important evolution for Quantic Dream, however, is that we are no longer a developer working with a publisher. Starting with the PC versions of Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls and Detroit: Become Human, we will be self-publishing all our titles."

Epic Stores - Detroit Become Human - Beyond Two Souls - Heavy Rain

Considering the technical specifications of the PlayStation 3, which include a single-core CPU with 3.2 GHz clocking and a nVidia RSX graphic processor featuring 550 MHz and 256 MB memory (approximately as fast as a Geforce 7800 that was available from 2005 to 2006), the currently given hardware requirements seem a little bit exaggerated and create the impression of a rather bad conversion. Also noteworthy is the lack of information about the necessary space on the hard drive, so we should expect the requirements to be updated before the launch. Here's hoping that the data isn't final and there will be enough time for fine tuning and optimizations in the upcoming months.

Minimum hardware requirements:
  • OS: Windows 7 or higher (64-bit)
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2400 3.4 GHz or better
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or better (2GB VRAM)
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Other: API Vulkan (Detroit: Become Human) / DirectX 11 (Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls)
Recommended hardware requirements:
  • OS: Windows 7 or higher (64-bit)
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2700K or better
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 or better (8 GB VRAM)
  • RAM: 12 GB
  • Other: API Vulkan (Detroit: Become Human) / DirectX 11 (Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls)

The Umbrella Academy - Season 2

While earlier reports on the subject were apparently based on rumors and pure speculations, Screen Rant finally confirmed this past saturday that Netflix has renewed »The Umbrella Academy« for a second season. Production is said to begin sometime in May and will go on until September. That should have it ready for a 2020 premiere around the time it did in February this year. Outside of that, no other details such as casting news, new characters or storylines have been revealed. Since the series has already headed in a totally different direction to the original comics and has mined those of almost all their major plot points, the next season is likely to blaze its own trail, and even comic book readers and longtime fans won't be able to predict where the show is going. Hopefully set photos and set reports will shine a light upon some of these enigmas as time goes by.

First look at Netflix's upcoming »Tales of the City« reboot / New release dates for »My Days of Mercy«

Armistead Maupin's classic novel »Tales of the City« is making a return on Netflix and will debut on the streaming platform this summer. The original show starred Laura Linney and Olympia Dukakis and after 26 years on the pair will be returning to the iconic steps of the fictional Barbary Lane (actually Macondray Lane in San Francisco). There were nine novels published between 1978 and 2014. The first book was the basis for the 1993 PBS miniseries "Tales of the City," with two additional instalments, "More Tales of the City" and "Further Tales of the City," followed on Showtime in 1998 and 2001. Lauren Morelli, the show-runner of the popular LGBTQ dramedy "Orange Is the New Black," gave audiences a first look at the anticipated series in a recent interview with Vanity Fair and pointed out that all writers on the project are LGBTQ: "If we were going to do this, it needed to usher in a new generation of characters and then, hopefully, a younger audience. We know how starved the younger, queer community is for authentic representation. You want to create a world that looks like our world."

The story picks up in the present day, as Mary Ann Singleton (Linney) returns home to San Francisco for the first time in 23 years on the occasion of Anna Madrigal's (Dukakis) 90th birthday. In this way she reconnects with her adult daughter Shawna Hawkins (Ellen Page) and her gay neighbor Michael "Mouse" Tolliver (Murray Bartlett) as she falls back into the lives of her chosen family. While actress Barbara Garrick returns as DeDe Halcyon Day and Paul Gross will reprise his role of Mary Ann's ex-husband and original housemate Brian Hawkins, we also know there will be a couple of other fresh new faces joining the cast including Zosia Mamet as filmmaker Claire Duncan, Charlie Barnett as Michael's much younger boyfriend Ben Marshall, Garcia as Anna's caregiver and young trans man Jake Rodriguez, whose transition puts a strain on his loving relationship with Margot Park played by May Hong, and Molly Ringwald.

The series will premiere its first episode on the opening night of the San Francisco International Film Festival (SFIFF) on April 10. There will be a Q&A afterward on the stage of the Castro Theater with showrunner, writer, and executive producer Lauren Morelli, director and executive producer Alan Poul, author and executive producer Armistead Maupin, and star and executive producer Laura Linney. Tickets for the event are "at rush," meaning there may be some tickets at the box office day-of.

After some back and forth, Lionsgate finally stuck to the original release date for »My Days of Mercy« on April 5. Tali Shalom-Ezer's drama is also scheduled to be released straight to Video-On-Demand by Signature Entertainment in the United Kingdom on May 17, and will hit German theaters on July 4 thanks to Kinostar Filmverleih.

Ellen Page goes on promotion tour for »The Umbrella Academy« in Poland, the U.K., the U.S. and Canada

After her fulminant appearance on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert", Ellen Page kicked off the extensive promotion tour for »The Umbrella Academy« in the Polish capital on February 4. There, she chatted with several journalists at the Raffles Europejski hotel and visited the local radio stations Trójka (PR3) and Czwórka (PR4) for interviews. However, the highlight in this context was without a doubt the conversation in the "mobile studio" of "Onet Rano" which was broadcasted live from a car driving around the city of Warsaw. Ellen, who admitted being in Poland for the first time ever, also got a little sightseeing tour in a relaxed atmosphere this way.


On that Thursday she met up with the rest of the main cast for the British premiere screening of the Netflix series held at Curzon Cinema Mayfair in London. During the stay Page appeared on BBC Radio 6 and BBC Radio 5 Live, where she talked about "The Umbrella Academy" and took the opportunity to recap the recent events such as her statement against US Vice President Mike Pence for opposing gay marriage. Fortunately, the Canadian actress were able to take breaks between the many appointments and got the chance to visit FC Liverpool's Anfield stadium for example. Despite their tight schedule, Ellen and co-star Mary J. Blige even attended the 72nd annual British Academy Film Awards and presented the prize for Best Supporting Actress to Rachel Weisz for her role in the royal drama "The Favourite".


The third stop on this journey was the mandatory US premiere held at ArcLight Hollywood on February 12, where Ellen was accompanied by her good friend and »Whip It« co-star Alia Shawkat. On the next day she popped by the PopBuzz studio to discuss her the new Netflix series, working with creator Gerard Way on the set and the possibility of a second season. From there she headed for Toronto to face another busy day which included appearances on "Your Morning" and "Breakfast Television Toronto", interviews with media outlets such as The Canadian Press - which gave the Haligonian the chance to talk about her efforts to amplify the voices of marginalized communities in Nova Scotia who are disproportionately impacted by environmental hazards - and the Canadian premiere at TIFF Bell Lightbox in the evening.

Just one day later Page was already back in the United States and sat down with her namesake on "The Ellen Show" to speak out on issues close to her heart, like LGBTQ rights and the environment, and open up about first connecting with her now-wife Emma Portner on Instagram as well as playing a superhero once again. At this point, we want to mention that we really did our best to keep up with all videos and podcasts showing up since the beginning of this month. You can find some of them embedded in this post with the rest being shared on our YouTube playlist as well as the audio section of this website. Feel free to get in touch with us if we missed something or you believe there's some stuff which should be a part of the collection.


Finally, we would like to note that Ellen was featured on the covers of UK's The Observer Magazine and Balance Magazine. While both issues come with in-depth articles and images from dedicated photoshoots, self-made scans have been added to our gallery for your reading pleasure in the meanwhile!

Ellen Page slams Trump administration's anti-LGBTQ policies on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Past Thursday night, Ellen Page made an appearance on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," which would resonate with the audience for some time afterward. The Canadian actress was ostensibly on the show to promote her upcoming Netflix series »The Umbrella Academy«, but within minutes, the entire conversation took a completely unexpected and emotional turn. It all started with a harmless joke about Ellen being short, the mention of her first wedding anniversary and the question if Hollywood's attitudes towards the LGBT community have gotten better since her public coming out on February 14, 2014. She responded that while things have improved, "we need to hurry up. It's not cutting it."


Directly after host Stephen Colbert commiserated with his female guest over the effects of global warming, wondering how they could "get the public and the media to pay more attention to what's happening." He added, "There's such a long time span," that people didn't feel it was an immediate threat. "Is it that long?" Page said skeptically while Colbert argued that "until the water started swamping Manhattan, or just washes away Mar-a-Lago," the public and media wouldn't take it seriously. "You don't want to think such terrible things are going to happen!" he joked. The actress, who is involved in many environmental causes herself, blamed "environmental racism" saying that "people of color" do nothing to cause global warming but are disproportionately affected by it. "This is happening and it's happening to the most marginalized people and we need to be talking about it!" she urged. If that wasn't provocative enough, Page then predicted the date the world was going to end: "It's really serious. We've been told, as we know it, that by 2030, the world as we know it, that's it. That's it! If it was a movie, we'd have Bruce Willis in a suit, like talking about something — please cast me," she gushed while concluding the thought with the words "Please, Amy Adams, save us" as a reference to Denis Villeneuve's acclaimed 2016 science fiction film "Arrival". "Talking about it," Page continued, should not include debates about whether climate change is a real thing. "The urgency is so severe, and yet we have a media that's barely talking about it,” she said. “We have a media that's saying it's a debate whether or not what just happened to Jussie Smollett is a hate crime. It's absurd! This shit isn't a debate."

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

“Sorry, I'm, like, really fired up tonight," she sheepishly apologized before proceeding with a statement against the current policies of the US government. "It feels impossible not to feel this way right now with the president and the vice president Mike Pence, who wishes I could not be married, let's just be clear. The vice president of America wishes I didn't have the love with my wife. He wanted to ban that in Indiana, he believes in conversion therapy, he has hurt LGBTQ people so badly as the governor of Indiana." From there, she connected the dots between what happened to out gay actor Jussie Smollett — who, according to the local police department, was attacked early Tuesday morning in Chicago by two men yelling out "racial and homophobic slurs," pouring an "unknown chemical substance" on him, and wrapping a rope around his neck — and the effect having anti-LGBTQ+ politicians in charge has on the culture at large. "If you are in a position of power and you hate people, and you want to cause suffering to them, you go through the trouble, you spend your career trying to cause suffering, what do you think is going to happen? Kids are going to be abused and they're gonna kill themselves, and people are going to be beaten on the street,” she said, clearly holding back tears. "I have traveled the world and I have met the most marginalized people you could meet," she referred to her own VICELAND show »Gaycation«, on which she traveled to countries around the world, investigating how they each treat LGBTQ+ people. "I am lucky to have this time and the privilege to say this. This needs to fucking stop."

Her remarkable and powerful speech was not only met with applause and cheers from the audience in the studio, but also picked up by the press and shared by many supporters including acting colleagues such as Mark Ruffalo and Julianne Moore within just a few hours. In addition, #EllenPage was trending on Twitter, meaning thousands of people were mentioning the actress in their tweets. Here's hoping for a sustainable effect of her plea and that it will stay in people's minds for a long time to come.

+++ Update 02/24/2019 +++

After weeks of conflicting reports, moving interviews and rumors, the Chicago Police Department has presented the results of its investigation into the alleged hate-fueled assault of actor Jussie Smollett. As the Chicago Tribune reports, Chicago police Superintendent Eddie Johnson revealed that Smollett faked a threatening, homophobic letter before paying $3,500 to Abel and Ola Osundairo, brothers who had previously worked on Empire, to stage the attack because he was dissatisfied with his salary on the Fox series. The scratches and bruises on Smollett's face were "self-inflicted" and he "took advantage of the pain and anger of racism to promote his career," Johnson added. "It's shameful. It's just despicable...It makes you wonder what’s going on in someone’s mind to be able to do something like that. I just wish that the families of gun violence in this city got this much attention." While investigations are still ongoing, there was no further statement from Ellen Page on this case so far.

+++ Update 02/27/2019 +++

Ellen wrote an op-ed published on February 27 to remind the world that - regardless of whether actor Jussie Smollett staged a racist and homophobic attack against himself - hate violence against members of marginalized communities is very real. "We, as LGBTQ+ people, are forced to fear for our safety because instances of hate violence... happen. They happen to us all the time," the actress and LGBTQ activist mentioned in a guest column for The Hollywood Reporter. "I had no reason to doubt Jussie," Page continued, adding that through her recent work on her TV docuseries »Gaycation« she has met many survivors of hate crimes.

Finally, we have some new photos from the recent press conference for »The Umbrella Academy« held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles on January 27, 2019. To our knowledge, it was the first event of this kind with animalistic support. And, with respect to our previous news update, we would like to mention that we eventually found some photos of Ellen attending the New York Film Critics Circle Awards.
