Into the Wild Green Yonder premiere at the Ney York Comic Con Is true, people from New York and the near areas, you can watch the World Premiere of the last Futurama Movie, Into the wild Green Yonder. Where? 2009 New York Comic Con (Jacob Javits Center, NY) When? Friday, February 6, 2009 at 5:30 PM. If you can, visit the original article and don't forget to ask for more info to the New York Comic Con people.

In other news about the last Futurama movie, there is a new review from the people of DVDTimes.co.uk, where they say that: "None of the Futurama films have been sparse when it comes to extras but there's a slight whiff of padding in some of those here, so it's fortunate that the main feature is strong enough to make this worth your time." and they rate the movie with a 7/10. Check the full DVDTimes.co.uk article for more details of the movie (spoliers).

Also, an earlier review of the same movie from DVDActive.com, that I forgot to post earlier has many many spoilers and screenshots, but in their words: "Not as good as Benders Big Score for me, but more satisfying than Beast with a Billion Backs and Bender's Game. Into the Wild Green Yonder felt a little more like good ol' Futurama, even if it never reached the heights of the shows grander episodes (oh, and it looks glorious in HD too)." They don't give a rating to the movie.. the full DVDActive.com article is over here.

Mad Leela and Fat Zapp by mr35mm Hello again people. I've been sick this weekend.. a hell of a flu with fever and all the other discomforts, but I'm kinda better now, so is time to update TFP.

Is time to present a new artist around here, from Argentina, please welcome mr35mm. I've uploaded five or his images, featuring Leela and Fry in a shippy pic, talking about shippy, there's another featuring Amy and Kif. The other fanarts include Fry and Bender, Amy surfing and the one featured today with Zapp and Leela... all of them have an interesting style that you should not miss.

In other news, there's already another early review of the last Futurama movie, Into the Wild Green Yonder (Blu-Ray), this time from the people of DVDActive.com. According to them, the movie is second after Bender's Big Score.. and they say the rating is 7/10.. over there, you'll find many many spoiers and info about the extras, so be sure to visit the DVDActive.com article.

Sexy Leela Green Bikini by Mike Jessen Is time for another update. I am sure the title of today attracted many of you, so I'm not gonna let you down. Mike Jessen was kind enough to create an exclusive image for TFP, that I uploaded today, simultaneously with another 9 of his fanarts. The image fetured today is Leela with a sexy green bikini as you can see, but you also will find Leela in other situations like fixing a satellite, working, gardening, in a classic way and a other very revealing one; There's also Amy fishing, as a cyborg, as a Star Trek character, and an almost nude Amy if not for the black bar generator inspired by the episode "3ACV16 - A Leela Of Her Own".
Enjoy!.

Human Robot Devil by MissusPatches Ok, I'm a little behind updating the site, but these days I really had to get some work done. Today I have some nice stuff for you, starting with MissusPatches, that has created 4 amazing new arts featuring Leela with Zoidberg (another weird couple), a treesome with Bender, Leela and Zoidberg (I can see the visitors ending here when they were searching for something else), a collab of her with BananaBlue featuring the Iron Cook challenge between Bender and Larry 3000.. and finally, featured today, a great image of the humanized Robot Dvil with excellent colors and background, be sure to check it out!.

I also added 2 new fanarts by Michel that feature the so called yaoi between Fry and Zapp (a disturbing idea leaded by Frygirl aka Yume93, you know, because of the kiss between Leela and Amy in BG).

That's all for now, but be sure to come back, some more neat fanart nicluding an exclusive TFP image is coming this way.

Into the Wild Green Yonder Blu-Ray cover There's another (the second) review of the 4th DVD Movie, Into the Wild Green Yonder. The people from DenOfGeek.com has an early copy of the Blu-Ray disc and it says there that the movie is "Not the best outing to date, but at least better than average.".. I've not seen the movie yet, but I'll like to know what's better than more Futurama :P
There are some extras are a little more explained:
  • Matt Groening and David X. Cohen in Space: Describes what happened when Matt and David went into a Zero G plane and just how much fun it was
  • Docudramarama: "How We Make Futurama So Good". This is quite a funny spoof that is obviously meant to parody the normal "Making Of" featurette that most DVDs incorporate.
  • Golden Stinkers: [..] This is the usual deleted scenes, and to be honest, some of them should have been in the movie - especially the extended version of the ship painting scene
  • Zapp Brannigan's Guide to Making Love at a Woman: Hilarious in many places, this is short and sweet. It made me wince in places, which is always good humour.
  • 3D Models with Animator Discussion: [..] it shows just how much of the movie uses 3D computer generated models and how complex some of them are
  • Benders Theatre Etiquette [..] this is a completely pointless and predictable animation. Sorry - but it is
So, some of them look good, the other not so good, but you have to watch the extras yourself to agree or desagree.. I personally need to see the movie, extras and all the other stuff by myself.. but is kinda interesting to have this early review. Don't forget to read the whole DenOfGeek.com article where you can find spoilers and more information.

Lucy, Fry and Bender by Tastes-Like-Fry Hello everyone. I've been lazy this weekend, besides playing football (soccer) today, I've done nothing productive, until now. Today's update has stuff from 2 people. The first stuff is from Red_Line (aka Tim) that kindly sent me a fanfic named Michelle Shock that won 2nd place in the 2008 TSFFC writing competition, the plot:
Fry and Leela have been happily married for almost three years and are expecting their first child. But when a pregnant Michelle shows up at Planet Express claiming Fry is the father, it falls to Bender to try to prove his innocence.
Be sure to check it out!

The other person over here today is Tastes-Like-Fry, with 2 new fanarts, featuring her original character, Lucy Fry (Fry and Leela's daughter) in two situations. One learning card tricks from Bender, and the other bugging Fry and Bender while playing videogames.

Other images feature Amy in her cowgirl and gym suit, a sexy Leela in bikini, Cloberella, and the last one featured today, the Planet Express crew with a nice painting style.

Thundercougarfalconbird 3D by George Jumara From the episode 2ACV07, Put Your Head on my Shoulder:
 
Salesman: Spotted her the minute you walked in, didn't you, sir? She's a real beauty.
Fry: Yup, she's beautiful coffee alright.
Salesman: No, the Ford Thundercougarfalconbird! Nothing makes you feel more like a man than a Thundercougarfalconbird. So how much were you thinking of spending on this Thundercougarfalconbird?
Fry: Sorry, I'm not here to buy.
Salesman: I understand, and it's wonderful you don't care whether anyone questions your sexual orientation.
Fry: I care! I care plenty! I just don't know how to make them stop!
Salesman: One word: Thundercougarfalconbird!

That's the scene that Jumara, a new artist around here used to create two amazing 3D images featuring the Ford Thundercougarfalconbird. One featured here, and the other of the Thundercougarfalconbird hovering in the city. Also, be sure to come back for a full Flash website featuring the Thundercougarfalconbird!.
