Fry and Leela Centaur (Bender's Game) by Yume93 Hello people. I've been busy, and this time I'm serious about it lol.. well, I've a job that is keeping me busy right now, but that doesn't mean that I don't want to update TFP like today. I've some nice fanart for you, this time from Yume93 or Frygirl, featuring one fanart of Leela rejecting Fry, Zapp and Fry, and the last one of Leela and Bender as a couple (featured today).
I've changed the previous news since the number of weeks of the sales of Bender's Game were wrong, so check the previous news for the correction (thanks to Cx for the info).

Bender's Game DVD Sales (no Blu-Ray sales yet...) The-Numbers.com has information about the 3rd Futurama Movie (Bender's Game) sales. According to them, Bender's Game has sold $2.16 millon in 2 weeks (thanks to Cx for the correction). The total number of DVD copies sold is 119,468, these values don't include Blu-Ray sales, so it could be kinda higher.

In the 1st week on sale, Bender's Game gathered $1.7 Millions (92,159 copies sold). Also, Keep in mind that there's already about $24 millions between the 3 first movies, hopefully, big numbers can open FOX eyes...

Into the Wild Green Yonder - Official Press Release Thanks to the people from Blu-Ray.com and TVShowsOnDVD.com, there's already the official press release of the last Futurama Movie, Into the Wild Green Yonder.

Release Date:
February 24th, 2009 (USA)

Synopsis:
All the other galaxies will be green with envy! In this all-new Futurama extravaganza, mankind stands on the brink of a wondrous new Green Age. But ancient forces of darkness, three years older than time itself, have returned to wreak destruction. Even more shocking: Bender's in love with a married fembot, and Leela's on the run from the law - Zapp Brannigan's law! Fry is the last hope of the universe...so if you're in the universe, you might want to think about going somewhere else. Could this be the end of the Planet Express crew forever? Say it ain't so, meatbag! Off we go, Into the Wild Green Yonder!

The synopsis looks very interesting, is the last (I hope not) Futurama epic adventure, and some answers will be clarified.. and the subplots look interesting too.

Extras:
  • Audio Commentary by Matt Groening, David X. Cohen, John DiMaggio, Maurice LaMarche, Michael Rowe, Lee Supercinski, Patric M. Verrone and Peter Avanzino
  • Storyboard Animatic: Into the Wild Green Yonder, Part 1
  • Featurette: Matt Groening and David X. Cohen in Space!
  • Docudramarama: "How We Make Futurama So Good"
  • "Louder! Louder!": The Acting Technique of Penn Jillette
  • Golden Stinkers: A Treasury of Deleted Scenes
  • How To Draw Futurama In 10 Very Difficult Steps
  • 3D Models with Animator Discussion
  • Bender's Movie Theater Etiquette
  • Zapp Brannigan's Guide to Making Love at a Woman
  • Video Picture – In – Picture commentary by Matt Groening, David X. Cohen, John DiMaggio, Maurice LaMarche, Michael Rowe, Lee Supercinski, Patric M. Verrone and Peter Avanzino (Blu-Ray Exclusive)

I really want to see Docudramarama and How To Draw Futurama In 10 Very Difficult Steps extras. Of course, the last extra is only for the Blu-Ray version.. but I can handle the comments without a video picture yet.

Prices:
  • DVD: $29.98 USA | $37.98 Canada
  • Blu-Ray: $39.98 USA | $49.98 Canada
The prices will fall at least 10 USA bucks when the DVD/Blu-Ray are available.. I'm sure of that. Don't forget to check the original Blu-Ray.com article and the original TVShowsOnDVD.com article. You can also check out the Full Official release Date at the Futurama Returns! News section.

Family Guy's creator, Seth McFarlane, coud be one of the guests of the next and last Futurama DVD Movie, Into the Wild Green Yonder, according to a phone call of SciFiTV.com.au with David X. Cohen (Futurama Producer). Acording to the article, Seth will sing at the movie, and also, David said he has a "beautiful singing voice".

Bender and Fry: Deatharama by SonicPanther Hey everyone.. I'm back around here with some interesting info. Bender's Game DVD at Amazon is now only at $14,99.. so if you don't have your copy, get it now.
I've new fanart.. one by SonicPanther featuring Bender and Fry in disguises. You'll also find four new images by Ekuhvielle, featuring Fry, Fry and Leelo (kinda strange isn't it..), and two arts of Fry as Bart's big brother.
I'm sorry for the lack of updates recently.. I've working in some stuff, including the new design that has some problems in IE6, hopefully, you'll see it very soon.

New Powerpuff Girs parody by Tastes-Like-Fry I know... I've not updated TFP.. but I've been working on the design. I have son CSS problems, and my last resource is to keep the use of tables in the news (like this one) because I wanted to use CSS only too. Ok, now is time for an update over here, even when I'm falling sleep (I've slept 8 hours in 2 days, don't ask why). First, there's a bunch of new reviews and rating of the new movie, Bender's Game, so this are the rated ones:
So far, kinda good. Bender's Game is between 7-8 of 10 points, but it also depends on the point of view, because Dungeons & Dragons and The Lord of the Rings fans could find extra jokes, jokes not made for everybody. I laso have some fanart for you today. Seven new images created by Tastes-Like-Fry, with fanart featuring Fry, Darth Bender, Gotharama, New Justice Team (Powerpuff Girls version), Fry & Leela.. and a self-portrait in Futurama style. Please enjoy and don't forget to comeback, the new layout of TFP could be around the corner...

What's new.. ok, I'm gonna start with the Bender's Game widget. It has many nice stuff, speacially the Genetics Lab game, where you can mix 2 Futurama characters with unknown results. Don't forget that you can add it to MySpace, Facebook, Google, Yahoo, Hi5 and many other social networks and sites. Check it out:


Also, I've found some nice interviews about the new movie, Bender's Game:

Bender's Game DVD - Get it at Amazon.com Ok, the 3rd Futurama movie, Bender's Game is available since today... what are you waiting for, grab your copy of the movie now only for $17,99 ($2 less) if you want the DVD, or the Blu-Ray for only $27,99.

I've some interesting info about the sales of Bender's Game at Amazon's Movies and TV section for you:
*This data was collected from Amazon.com on November 4, 2008 at 16H54 EST


This info will be updated later with the new positions of the DVD/Blu-Ray, but for about 12 hours of availability, the movie is very strong, so the sales could be good, and give Futurama another chance to finally comeback as TV Series.
