FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

THE FEATURE-LENGTH ACTION EPIC

1000 YEARS IN THE MAKING ARRIVES . . .

FUTURAMA IS BACK, BABY!

In Fox Home Entertainment's First Carbon-Neutral Release,

Fry, Leela, Professor Farnsworth And Bender Triumphantly Return

On DVD November 27

Century City, CA - The future is back . . . and it's cleaner than ever!

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment presents the first of four

direct-to-DVD "Futurama" adventures when Futurama: Bender's Big Score

makes its highly anticipated DVD debut on November 27. As the studio's

first carbon-neutral release, the carbon impact of the production,

manufacture and distribution of the Futurama Bender's Big Score DVD was

directly assessed and actively reduced. For the unavoidable emissions,

the studio used high-quality, verified carbon offsets. Futurama:

Bender's Big Score also features an eco-friendly highlight - a cameo

from former Vice President Al Gore, guest starring as himself.

The first feature-length "Futurama" action epic, with three more

adventures expected through 2009, finds the "Futurama" crew fighting to

save Earth in an epic battle against nudist alien Internet scammers.

It's nearly Christmas 3007 when evil naked aliens launch a cyber-attack

on the Planet Express and make a shocking discovery: the secret of time

travel, mysteriously tattooed on Fry's buttocks. Using their devious

nudist software to control Bender, the aliens send him through history

where he has run-ins with the likes of Al Gore, Coolio (Daredevil,

Batman & Robin) and Sarah Silverman ("The Sarah Silverman Program,"

School For Scoundrels).

In addition to the never-before-seen movie, the Futurama: Bender's Big

Score DVD features commentary from Matt Groening and David X. Cohen,

cast members Billy West, John DiMaggio and Phil LaMarr, director Dwayne

Carey-Hill and writer Ken Keeler; an animated promo for An Inconvenient

Truth starring Bender and Al Gore, with commentary by the former Vice

President, Matt Groening and David X. Cohen; an all-new episode entitled

"Everybody Loves Hypnotoad" including TV commercials of the future; a

"Futurama" mind shattering math lecture; character and design sketches

and deleted scenes. Futurama: Bender's Big Score will be available for

a suggested retail price of $29.98 U.S./$37.98 Canada. Prebook is

October 31, 2007.

Synopsis:

Uncancel your plans for the future - Futurama is back! In this all-new,

feature-length epic, evil nudist aliens send Bender on a rampage through

time, forcing him - slightly against his will - to steal all of Earth's

priceless historic treasures. Will the heroic Planet Express crew save

the planet? Will Leela find true love? Will the ancient and terrible

secret of Fry's buttocks be exposed? All will be revealed in Futurama:

Bender's Big Score, the greatest adventure of our time, and also the

greatest adventure of several other times! In the words of a certain

beer-fueled robot . . . "We're back, baby!"

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
