FROM THE CREATORS OF “THE SIMPSONS”
COMES THE FEATURE-LENGTH ACTION EPIC
1000 YEARS IN THE MAKING

FUTURAMA
BENDER’S BIG SCORE

Fox Home Entertainment Presents The Triumphant Return Of
Fry, Leela, Professor Farnsworth And Bender On DVD November 27


Century City, CA – The future is back! The first new “Futurama” programming since 2003, Futurama: Bender’s Big Score features out-of-this-world hilarity on DVD November 27 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

As Xmas 3007 approaches, the “Futurama” crew must fight to save Earth in an epic battle against nudist alien Internet scammers. When the evil naked aliens launch a cyber-attack on Planet Express, they make a shocking discovery: the secret of time travel, mysteriously tattooed on Fry's buttocks. Using their devious nudist software to control Bender, they repeatedly send the beer-fueled robot back in time to loot Earth of its greatest treasures. Bender's rampage through history has shocking repercussions when he encounters Al Gore (guest-starring as himself) during the 2000 Presidential recount. Meanwhile, Leela finds true love, a beloved crew member suffers an embarrassing decapitation, and Fry learns deep secrets about his destiny and his buttocks.

Al Gore, Coolio and Sarah Silverman guest star.

Futurama: Bender’s Big Score will be the first full-length “Futurama” adventure, with the universe expanding when three more films are released individually through 2008. More information on the next feature films will be forthcoming.

Posted Image Oh man, I am all over this. Welcome back, "Futurama"!!!
Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.
* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.
* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

FYI, this was (to a certain extent) already being discussed in this older thread: http://www.hometheat....d.php?t=213822
But this thread seems to be getting somewhat more attention, so I'll repost this tidbit from ComicCon here:
While I'm sure to buy the DVD's, it's good that folks will get the ability to see them on TV even if they're not inclined to purchase them.

Good news all around on the Futurama front lately.

What are the chances this will be made 16x9? I guess since they are going to TV eventually, they will just stick to the joe6pack ratio. Posted Image

I would love to be able to see this thing in HD, but I guess I shouldn't hold my breath.

Agreed, I'm all over this one when it comes out, too! Especially since I bought all four volumes of ``Futurama'' at the exorbitant prices charged by Worst Buy. Posted Image

There's an unexciting easter egg showing the paper that David Cohen and Ken Keeler used to figure out who was where by the end of the episodes (as mentioned on the commentary). Push 'right' on your remote from any of the choices on the second page of Special Features and Bender will highlight.
