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,

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

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!"
