The graphics Quantic Dream cranks out scare me. They scare me into thinking when I play their games my PlayStation is going to melt because it can’t handle it. They recently showed off their latest game Beyond: Two Souls at the Tribeca Film festival, and what a perfect place to show it off because the game is practically a movie itself. Check out the Tribeca trailer past the break, and some amazing screenshots as well. The game will release on October 8th exclusively on the PlayStation 3.
Beyond: Two Souls is taking on the form of a fancy Hollywood blockbuster movie with the likes of Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe as 2 of the main characters. Quantic Dream has gone above and beyond to make their characters as real as possible, those of you who played Heavy Rain know from experience. If you head past the break you can see Willem Dafoe’s reveal trailer, followed by a motion capture behind the scenes video. It’s incredible to see what they do to get as many details as possible in the characters. Beyond: Two Souls will be gracing your Playstation 3′s this October.
Jeff Sneider of Variety tweeted that Hard Candy and An American Crime‘s Ellen Page is attached to star in the indie Into the Forest, an adaptation of the novel by Jean Hegland. No other information was presented at this time.
Set in the near-future, “Into the Forest” is a powerfully imagined novel that focuses on the relationship between two teenage sisters living alone in their Northern California forest home.
“Over 30 miles from the nearest town, and several miles away from their nearest neighbor, Nell and Eva struggle to survive as society begins to decay and collapse around them. No single event precedes society’s fall. There is talk of a war overseas and upheaval in Congress, but it still comes as a shock when the electricity runs out and gas is nowhere to be found. The sisters consume the resources left in the house, waiting for the power to return. Their arrival into adulthood, however, forces them to reexamine their place in the world and their relationship to the land and each other.”
This disturbing look to the future could be right up our alley, but it’ll be up to the filmmakers to decide what kind of vision they want to put on screen.
The title is derived from tiny Peacock, Neb., where Murphy’s character, a split personality, fools the town into believing his two alter egos are man and wife. Page plays a struggling young mother who holds the key to his past and sparks a battle between the personalities.
Based on a true story that gripped the nation in 1965, An American Crime recounts one of the most shocking crimes ever committed against a single victim. The daughters of traveling carnival workers are left for an extended stay at the suburban Indiana home of single mother Gertrude Baniszewski and her seven children. Times are tough, and Gertrude’s needs force her to accept this arrangement before understanding how the burden will push her already-fragile nature to a breaking point. What transpires is both riveting and horrific, leaving one child dead and the rest scarred for life.
