New Futurama movie coming to DVD in June
AnimationMagazine.net reports that Futurama: The Beast With A Billion Backs will be released on June 24, and they note that Fox calls it "the most tentacle-packed Futurama epic." Since it's a continuation of Bender's Big Score, I'll talk about the plot of the new movie after the jump, for the benefit of those who haven't seen the first movie yet.
Remember at the end of the last movie, when Bender's shenanigans caused a large hole in the universe to tear open? Well, on the other side, the Planet Express folks find a huge disgusting monster who happens to fall in love with entire planets. Guess where it's going next?
When I interviewed executive producer David X. Cohen before the first movie was released, he gave me a little preview of The Beast With A Billion Backs:
"But I will say for anyone who sees the first DVD, it kind of leaves off at a point were you might think we're either going to come back and deal with a couple of unanswered questions or we might just let it go without ending it. But I reassure you that we're going to pick up the second one where the first one leaves off and your questions will be answered.
The second one guest stars David Cross as a giant, disgusting planet-sized alien from another universe. (He has a romantic interest) in every single living being in our universe. Yes. It's another touching and disgusting story to look forward to."
Romantic planet-loving beasts? Tentacles? David Cross? How can it lose? June 24 can't come fast enough.
