Good news everyone! I know there are a lot of Futurama fans around here (Avatars, quotes, etc…). Most of you probably already know that there are new films/episodes coming up but here are the details just in case. - Some history - Glad the episodes will finally be out of Fox's clutches. - The official announcement - The Comic-Con teaser is floating around on youtube. It's shamelessly making fun of Fox for cancelling the show . Here is a link. (poor shaky cellphone quality) Not sure how long it will last. - Names of the four Futurama movies - Bender's Big Score The Beast with a Billion Backs Bender's Game Into the Wild Green Yonder - Some details about the 4 movies - All 4 new Futurama movie DVDs are going to be released in "Glorious Widescreen" (1.78:1) with Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound and will be available in both DVD and High-Definition format. Each of the feature-length movies (approximately 88 minutes) will be cut and reconfigured to be shown as four individual episodes on Comedy Central sometime after the release on DVD (date has not yet been set). The current plan states that the TV episodes are going to be in 4:3 to match the earlier episodes. All the more reason to buy the DVDs once they are available! - More details about the first movie - Futurama: Bender's Big Score Release Date: Nov. 27th, 2007 Official Price: around $24 Preorder: Can be pre-ordered for less. Plot summary ("highlight to read"): 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.
