Futurama’s direct-to-DVD follow up to the direct-to-DVD release, ‘Bender’s Big Score’ will be hitting store shelves on June 24th. Titled, ‘The Beast with a Billion Backs,’ has something to do with a beast coming through to our universe and taking over Fry, making him the Pope of a new religion.
‘Bender’s Big Score’ was pretty damn funny (even though I checked out of keeping track of the specific plot points thanks to the convoluted time-travel wackiness that took place about halfway through) and I’m glad to see that Futurama is still coming out with new things. I hope Fox offered to give them a time slot back and they said no. Of course the ratings were low while it was on the air. How can a show do well if it’s constantly preempted by football?! Fox, you’ve done it again.
Anyhoo, this is much better. Check out the trailer (which isn’t really funny, but still) below and long live Fry!
