Solar Eclipse on TV: Marge Simpson and Don Draper Show What Not To Do This Monday

19 August 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Don’t be like Marge Simpson and Don Draper this Monday.

That’s perhaps the unexpected takeaway from memorable eclipse storylines on both “The Simpsons” and “Mad Men.” Marge and Don both look directly at the sun, with mixed results. And they’re not the only ones with bad eclipse habits.

As the continental United States embraces Eclipse Fever, here are a handful of recent TV series and movies that have incorporated the solar event into storylines and plots. The website Eclipse Guy has put together a thorough database of movies, TV series, music videos and commercials that have included eclipse scenes; IndieWire has curated a list of six recent ones on the small screen.

The 433rd episode of “The Simpsons,” 2009’s “Gone Maggie Gone,” starts off with a sequence in which Marge, who gives her camera obscura to Homer (who had naturally broken his), decides to peek »

‘The Simpsons’ First Screenwriter Says She Was Kept Out of the Writers’ Room for Being a Woman: ‘No One Ever Called Me’

12 August 2017 11:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

126 people have written or co-written an episode of “The Simpsons,” most of whose names you probably don’t know. Among that company is Mimi Pond, who happens to have penned the long-running show’s first episode; in a new Jezebel interview, Pond says that she never became a full-time member of the writing staff because she’s a woman.

“I was never invited to be on staff, and I never knew why for the longest time,” she says of her experiences. Eventually the truth came out:

“No one ever called me or explained to me or apologized or anything. And it wasn’t until years later that I found out that Sam Simon, who was the showrunner, didn’t want any women around because he was going through a divorce. »

‘The Simpsons Movie 2’ Is in ‘Earliest Stages of Development,’ According to Director David Silverman

29 July 2017 2:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s been 10 years since “The Simpsons Movie” arrived in theaters and pink donuts arrived in 7-11. Given how successful the film was — it made around $527 million and earned positive reviews — many have naturally wondered if and when a sequel might happen.

According to David Silverman, who directed the 2007 film, a silver-screen return to Springfield might be in the cards after all — though it’s still in “the very earliest stages” of development.

“I certainly am cautious about a couple things. I wouldn’t want it to be risky in terms of budget, and I would not want it to be anything that we did purely for the money,” he tells Entertainment Weekly while marking the film’s 10th anniversary. “I would want it to be a really great movie. »

A Sequel To The Simpsons Movie Could Still Happen

28 July 2017 11:51 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With The Simpsons now being well on its way to becoming the longest-running show in television history, some can’t help but observe that this summer marks the ten year anniversary of when our favorite Springfield residents made the jump to the big screen. And, in the time since The Simpsons Movie opened in cinemas, those same folks have probably pondered the chances of a sequel.

In fact, the film’s director, David Silverman, told Entertainment Weekly that he’s certainly up for such a thing, but he’s also being a realist:

“I’d love for there to be another one. We’re still a ways away from it. We talk about this and that. We’re thinking it over, but nothing’s happening just yet.…. It’s still daunting because it really knocked the stuffing out of us to do the movie and the show at the same time. »

Those are tremendous numbers even by... Read More »

‘The Simpsons Movie’ Sequel Still a Possibility

28 July 2017 9:45 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Simpsons Movie came out just about 10 years ago today and the award-winning animated series is still going strong as it approaches the debut of its 29th season on Fox this fall. With viewership still showing a healthy interest, the writing remaining solid, and the cast and crew still invested after all these years, what are the chances we'll be seeing another feature outing for Springfield's most famous family anytime soon? Probably pretty slim, at least in the short term, but there's always hope for a feature in the future. Many have wondered just how … »

Dealing with the Baggage of ‘The Simpsons Movie’

27 July 2017 10:04 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Looking back on this still-young century makes clear that 2007 was a major time for cinematic happenings — and, on the basis of this retrospective, one we’re not quite through with ten years on. One’s mind might quickly flash to a few big titles that will be represented, but it is the plurality of both festival and theatrical premieres that truly surprises: late works from old masters, debuts from filmmakers who’ve since become some of our most-respected artists, and mid-career turning points that didn’t necessarily announce themselves as such at the time. Join us as an assembled team, many of whom were coming of age that year, takes on their favorites.

I was born in June of 1992, a year particularly important to Simpsons lore. On one hand, my date of birth fell three months before the airing of the show’s fourth season, which is considered by many »
