Default "Futurama: Bender's Game" - November 4th

Quote:
At the Comic Con Futurama panel, Fox showed some new footage for the forthcoming feature-length DVD, Bender’s Game. The trailer included riffs on high “dark matter” (i.e. gas) prices (with “Mom” playing the role of the evil oil companies), and some Futurama characters playing Dungeons and Dragons, then being transported to a Dungeons and Dragons-like world. There’s also a clear parody of The Lord of the Rings films.

The movie will be released on Blu-Ray (a first in Futurama history!) and DVD on November 4th, 2008. This post will be updated later with the some art for the movie, but in the meantime, mark your calendars for this series’ next great installment!

Here is more information of the Blu future of Futurama

Quote:
AgentDVD magazine, a trade publication from the folks behind Home Media Magazine (it's published much less frequently), has a new article discussing the success of Futurama since it returned on the basis of "release it first on DVD, then break the feature into four episodes and air it on Comedy Central". The concept is working quite well, and the story there says co-creator David X. Cohen is grateful to the success of the concept, whose path was paved when Family Guy returned to broadcast after its own DVD successes.

The AgentDVD story, written by editor-in-chief Stephanie Prange, goes on to explain that "Another benefit is that the movies are produced in widescreen and high-definition in anticipation of a Blu-ray release, and Cohen says the final two movies may be released on Blu-ray the same day as the DVD." Those final two movies are tentatively titled Bender's Game and Futurama: Into the Wild Green Yonder. Those two releases, along with the first two direct-to-video titles Bender's Big Score and The Beast with a Billion Backs, make up the show's "5th Season".

When will we see those last two? Cohen gave AgentDVD some info about that as well:

The next "Futurama" DVD movie is Bender's Game, a takeoff on Dungeons & Dragons, tentatively scheduled for Nov. 4, Cohen says.

"It's our first foray into fantasy," he says. "It's visually spectacular."

The fourth feature will be done sometime this fall and released in the spring, he says.

Remember, he says that release date is "tentative", so it could be subject to change. Stay tuned for updates and more info! In the meantime, if you haven't seen the preview trailer for Bender's Game that was among the extras on the Beast With a Billion Backs disc, then check out these screen captures:

Beast With A Billion Backs was announced on BD, but it was pulled back. Find a BWABB poster, and it's right on the top: "Coming to DVD and Blu-ray Disc [Insert Date]."
