Casey Affleck, who actually grew up in the Boston area, in case you didn’t know, is on board for a film addressing the 2013 Boston marathon bombing, based on the written account Boston Strong. There’s no title for the film yet, but Boston Strong is a pretty good bet.

To add to that Boston-y goodness, the screenwriters of The Fighter have written the script. In fact, they optioned the book before it was even written. THAT’S HOW MUCH THEY LOVE BOSTON.

The film will focus on the manhunt for the bombers, rather than the tragic events of the day, though they’re sort of one and the same in my eyes. No word on supporting cast and co-stars, but I’m thinking Peter Gammons, Stephen King, Nomar, Emeril, and maybe the ghost of Ted Kennedy would be a nice fit.

FXX Will Now Be Giving Us Simpsons Mini-Marathons Almost Every Night…Forever http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/fxx-will-now-be-giving-us-simpsons-mini-marathons-almost-every-night-forever/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/fxx-will-now-be-giving-us-simpsons-mini-marathons-almost-every-night-forever/#comments Fri, 29 Aug 2014 16:53:08 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=264572 There is very little time left for human interaction.

The non-stop Simpsons marathon on FXX has catapulted the network into the top 5 cable channels, and, wanting to keep that momentum past the 12-day marathon, the network has announced that it will be all-Simpson, all-the-time.

Almost.

5 nights a week, it will air at least four hours of Simpsons, ensuring that there will ALWAYS be something good on during primetime. This will leave a little sliver carved out for Parks and Recreation reruns, and you can just backfill the rest of your day with work and sleep.

It’s a brilliant system, and just another step towards what I’m calling the Simpsons Renaissance of 2014.

The schedule will be as follows:

Mondays will be 6PM-12AM

Tuesdays will be 8PM-12AM

Wednesdays will be free time (feel free to go to a bar, speak with your family, watch DVR‘d Simpsons reruns…whatever)

Thursday will be  6PM-12AM

Fridays will be 8PM-12AM

Saturdays will be free time (exercise, eat some oatmeal)

Sundays will be 4PM-8PM

Enjoy the schedule that will now dictate the rest of your life.

In about two months, The Avengers film will be in theaters. That’s a long wait for many fans, but the wait will feel about 14 hours shorter for Marvel fans who sign up for The Ultimate Marvel Movie Marathon, which is pretty much just what it sounds like.

Leading up to an Avengers showing at midnight, the marathon will offer showings of all the movies featuring Avengers characters. So Spider-Man and Ghost Rider can go straight to hell.

On the docket are screenings of Thor, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Incredible Hulk, and Captain America. Now that’s a lazy Thursday that we can all get behind. Only 10 theater in 10 cities will be screening this marathon, so in big markets, move now to guarantee a ticket. Tickets are only $40 for all the films, so your reasons for not sitting in a dark room and watching comic book movies are dwindling.
