We are moving to a new web hosting service / DomainFactory has been hacked and experienced a huge data breach

DomainFactory, one of the largest web hosting companies in Germany (where our website is currently hosted), has suffered a huge data breach. The breach dates back to January 29, 2018, and the attacker had access to sensitive customer data including name, company name, customer number, address, email address, telephone number, DomainFactory phone password, date of birth, bank name and account number (eg IBAN and BIC), and Schufa score (German credit score).

The first indication that a breach happened was a post by the attacker on the DomainFactory support forum on July 3. The forum has since been temporarily shut down but, according several websites, the attacker published data of a number of customers as proof. The attacker also said he hacked the hosting provider to obtain the data of a person who apparently owes him a large amount of money. But after he realized that DomainFactory was not disclosing the breach to its customers, he took the task upon himself. DomainFactory finally confirmed the breach on Friday and said they have started an investigation, called in external experts to help with it, notified the relevant data protection authority and are working on securing their systems to prevent similar breach in the future. The company said that the attacker accessed the data after "a data feed after a system change inadvertently made certain customer information accessible to outside parties."

In this context, it was also revealed that DomainFactory outsourced the 24/7 operational server supervision in January 2018 to "LvivIT!", a Ukrainian IT service of freelancers owned by GoDaddy Inc. A piquant detail is the fact that GoDaddy took over hosting company Host Europe Group in April 2017, which in turn acquired DomainFactory in October 2013. The information about the outsourcing of the technical administration was only known to certain resellers and not widely communicated to all customers so far.

Due to the non-transparent information policy regarding this controversial case, the resulting loss of trust and the lack of an honest and comprehensive statement on the part of DomainFactory, we see no other choice than moving our stuff to another hosting partner. For this reason 'Ellen Page Online' might experience a downtime of several days due to the relocation in the near future. Thank you for your understanding as well as taking the time reading this!

Ellen Page joins the cast of Netflix’s Tales of the City reboot as well as the Tegan and Sara Foundation

Netflix has given a series order for a revival of cult '90s LGBT-themed show "Tales of the City," now titled, »Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City«. Set in present-day, the 10-episode limited series will see Laura Linney, Olympia Dukakis and Barbara Garrick reprise their original roles from the three previous Tales mini-series with some exciting new additions. Most notably in the form of Canadian actress Ellen Page, who plays Linney's character's estranged daughter Shawna.

Tales of the City

According to first reports, the plot is loosely based on "Mary Ann in Autumn," the eighth novel in the book saga, and follows Mary Ann (Linney), who returns home to San Francisco and is reunited with her daughter (Page) and ex-husband Brian, twenty years after leaving them behind to pursue her career. Fleeing the midlife crisis that her picture-perfect Connecticut life created, Mary Ann returns home to her chosen family and will quickly be drawn back into the orbit of Anna Madrigal (Dukakis) and the residents of 28 Barbary Lane.

"The magical, vivid world that [author] Armistead Maupin built in Tales of the City is one that offered so many — particularly the LGBTQ+ community — a home for the first time. For many, Tales was the first time they saw themselves on screen," said writer and showrunner Lauren Morelli ("Orange is The New Black"). "I am humbled to now find my own home within Tales and to continue telling Armistead’s stories."

Commenting on the announcement, Maupin added: "I couldn’t be more excited about this new brand-new incarnation of Tales. It’s set in present-day San Francisco with all the joys and complications that might suggest for the residents of 28 Barbary Lane. Mrs. Madrigal’s tenants, both old and new, will be entangled in delicious new adventures and ever-expanding possibilities for love."

Production is expected to begin later this year for a 2019 debut. Be sure to add the show to your Netflix watch list so you don’t miss the first episode!

Meanwhile, Ellen also joined the Board of Directors at the Tegan and Sara Foundation to fight for health, economic justice and representation for LGBTQ girls and women. The actress made the following announcement on Instagram past Friday:

"Tegan and Sara have stood as a beacon of hope for LGBTQ+ individuals since the start of their careers more than twenty years ago. Their music and their message have inspired and empowered thousands around the world, myself included. They are trailblazers in our community, speaking out on behalf of those who feel they will never be heard. Their platform is a reminder to us all that even in our most isolating struggles, we are not alone. It is a true privilege to be working alongside them & the other incredible women on this board. With the Tegan and Sara Foundation, we can continue to elevate the voices of women & non-binary in the LGBTQ+ & work to transform our global community into one of inclusivity."

As explained on its website, the organization's mission is "founded on a commitment to feminism and racial, social and gender justice." They work in partnership and solidarity with other organizations fighting for LGBTQ and women’s rights, raising funds and awareness as well as tackling the inequality that prevents people affected from reaching their full potential.

»The Cured« Press Junket in LA / Movie review round-up: What critics think about Freyne's feature film debut

Prior to her birthday, Ellen Page joined »The Cured« director David Freyne for a press junket of his first feature film in Los Angeles. The Irish/Canadian duo sat down with The Hollywood Reporter for an interview and answered fan questions during live chats for Yahoo! Entertainment and distributor IFC Films. You can watch the videos below where you will learn about their favorite horror movies, Ellen's first time of playing a traditional mother, the best days of shooting, the atmosphere on set considering the dark material, the "Time's Up" movement, green tea, upcoming projects including Netflix's »The Umbrella Academy« as well as Ellen's recent marriage and what it's like working with her wife Emma Portner.

Most critics thankfully realized and accepted that »The Cured« isn't a typical zombie flick and rather that it takes a fresh look at the genre; focusing on the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse when former infected people are trying to reintegrate themselves into society. As a result, reviews have been mostly positive so far as you see in the following roundup.

The Cured

Glenn Kenny, writing for rogerebert.com, says the movie comes with "a very creepy, suspenseful story that’s also a better-than-average character study" and "Freyne is a filmmaker to watch, to be sure, and »The Cured« is going to be a genre film to beat in 2018." Haleigh Foutch's review for Collider goes in the same direction as he speaks about an "impressive debut feature" which "gives us something different; a glimpse at society’s attempts and failures to pick up the pieces after a viable cure to the cannibalistic infection is discovered." Film School Rejects' Rob Hunter even calls it "28 Months Later", a possible sequel to Danny Boyle’s "28 Days Later" and "Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s "28 Weeks Later" and comes to the conclusion "»The Cured« is a terrifically tense thriller that works both as a simple genre effort and a deeper exploration of how we treat those who’ve trespassed against us."

Michael Klug of Horror Freak News highlights the "noteworthy performances and an insanely cool take on the zombie sub-genre," in which "Page nails several “Oscar-clip” moments – notably when Senan tells Abbie some hidden details about his time under the sickness’ influence – and "Keeley is a solid lead." He just feels "there’s something missing in the film’s handling of what should be a hearty and heartfelt emotional center; something’s a bit off and the film suffers slightly because of it", but still rates it with 4 out of 5 stars. The same rating comes from Gamesradar's Kevin Harley who believe the film is "over-ambitious perhaps, but Freyne's intensely executed ‘infected’ fable packs tension, resonance, and clout."

The Cured

Eli Fine from The Playlist underlines the "truly impressive cinematography by Piers McGrail" as well as the "good performances here" mentioning "Page is quite good even as she doesn’t have a whole lot to do." However, he eventually sticks to a rather average C grade. Watching the movie on behalf of Geek Culture, Drew Pan states it's "a zombie movie that wants you to think" and comes with "two strong leads" whereby "Ellen Page is excellent as usual, convincingly playing a woman who wants to do the right thing, yet is also tormented by the horrors she’s lived through." At the same time, he stats "the real problem of this movie is the third act," which includes "a very predictable outcome." A similar point of view is shared by Houston Chronicle's Cary Darling, who comments the film "becomes less cerebral and more predictably action-oriented in its third act and the ending is slightly unsatisfying." Still, "»The Cured« is intriguing enough to make Freyne someone to watch and the late Romero proud."

Reviewing for the Irish website Independent.ie, Chris Wasser believes director David Freyne abandons a "promising premise in place of one too many jarring and derivative action shenanigans" and describes his feature film debut as "bitterly disappointing." His Irish colleague Brian Lloyd, in turn, enjoyed the screening a lot more and writes on Entertainment.ie "»The Cured« is an ambitious attempt to bring genre horror into the Irish film landscape and while it may be lacking in the execution, it more than makes up for it with a fascinating premise and strong performances by the ensemble cast."

The Cured

In his review on Flickering Myth, Matt Donato remembers Page's performance the best while "David Freyne creates something so genuinely provocative that‘s not tarnished nearly enough to dismiss, but an open-ended, self-serving finale fails to capitalize on bigger conversations initiated in earlier views of persecution." Drew Tinnin from Dread Central heads in the same direction by pointing out "Page’s performance is the emotional core of the film as she goes from understanding to fear to dealing with the ultimate betrayal. It’s important for a slow-developing story like this to have an actress with some star power, and director David Freyne and his team were fortunate to have a high caliber actress ready to deliver in some of the film’s quieter, more intense moments." Overall, "The Cured is a gritty take on the genre that fits nicely into the new type of storytelling that these stories need to embrace in a post-Romero world" in his opinion.

Film Journal International's André Hereford regrets that "the film's sleepy second act eventually gives way to a savage, chaotic finale, with some decent fights and foot chases, that doesn’t truly compensate for the general listlessness and relentlessly downbeat ambience." David Fear from the Rolling Stone thinks "it's a moody horror movie that favors metaphor over mayhem until its violent, chaotic final third, at which point the screaming starts in earnest. A bit more balance between gnawing guilt and plain old gnawing would have done this scare-parable wonders," while still giving it a fair rating of 3 out of 5 stars.

IFC Films releases first trailer and poster for »The Cured« / Production on »Umbrella Academy« starts in Toronto

IFC Films and Tilted Pictures unveiled the first official trailer and poster for David Freyne's directorial debut »The Cured« and announced they are releasing the movie in theaters, on demand, and via digital HD on February 23, 2018. Apart from this, the zombie thriller will also be screening at the Audi Dublin International Film Festival on February 25, 2018.

Official synopsis:

“What happens when the undead return to life? In a world ravaged for years by a virus that turns the infected into zombie-like cannibals, a cure is at last found and the wrenching process of reintegrating the survivors back into society begins. Among the formerly afflicted is Senan (Sam Keeley), a young man haunted by the horrific acts he committed while infected. Welcomed back into the family of his widowed sister-in-law (Ellen Page), Senan attempts to restart his life—but is society ready to forgive him and those like him? Or will fear and prejudice once again tear the world apart? Pulsing with provocative parallels to our troubled times, The Cured is a smart, scary, and hauntingly human tale of guilt and redemption.”

Ellen Page's other TIFF17 movie »My Days of Mercy« has recently been rated in the US by the MPAA and received an 'R' rating for "strong sexuality/nudity, and for language". While there hasn't been any news since its world premiere in September, the rating could indicate that the very first distribution deal for director Tali Shalom-Ezer's drama is in sight and the long wait for a release date could be over soon. In any event, fans from Australia get an early chance to see it on February 20, 2018, where it will screen as part of Queer Screen's 25th Mardi Gras Film Festival in Sydney. You can get your ticket at tix.queerscreen.org.au.

Meanwhile, the production on Netflix's »Umbrella Academy« kicked off in Toronto in early January with the entire cast gathering together for a table reading of the first episode. Watch out for the hashtag #umbrellaacademy on Twitter and Instagram to catch the latest updates on this interesting project!

Back in the United States, Ellen, her wife Emma Portner as well as ex-girlfriend Samantha Thomas joined millions of women and men around the world for a second year of the Women’s March and were spotted in the streets of Los Angeles last Saturday. What began as a simple Facebook invitation to protest the election of president Donald Trump has become that and a whole lot more, with this year’s event also standing as a symbol of the global #MeToo movement and the Time’s Up initiative.
