Futurama

While it’s not the full resurrection fans are hoping will one day happen again, and it’s not that 3D remake we saw recently, it has been announced that Futurama will indeed live again…for at least one day.

In something you’d think would have happened a long, long time ago, the characters of Futurama will appear in a crossover episode of The Simpsons this November 9th. Both series were created by Matt Groening, so it makes all the sense in the world to have the two animated worlds meet up; it just took a while.

The Long Lost Bill Murray Film ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’ Surfaces Online

BAADASSSSS!   |

Bill Murray

In the 39 years since it went on the air for the first time, Saturday Night Live has seen its talented cast, writers, and production staff go on to conquer Hollywood and forever change the landscape of modern comedy filmmaking. Some of the movies they made were classics, some were pretty good, a few were downright awful and excruciating to watch, and most were simply blah. But at least they saw a legitimate release in one form or another so that viewers could make their own judgments.

Such wasn’t the case with Nothing Lasts Forever, an oddly endearing science-fiction romantic comedy adventure written and directed by Tom Schiller, a filmmaker beloved for making such classic SNL short subjects as La Dolce Gilda and Don’t Look Back in Anger who would later go on to direct over 500 humorous television commercials for his own company, Schillervision. Despite having never received an official release in theaters or on home video in the three decades since it was originally scheduled to premiere and subsequently buried by its home studio, the film has found its way in full onto YouTube.

You can watch Nothing Lasts Forever here below.

REMINDER! New Episodes Of ‘Futurama’ Start On Comedy Central TONIGHT!

It’s here! The brand new episodes of Futurama we’ve been begging and pleading to get for years now are finally set to begin at 10pm tonight on Comedy Central! In all honesty, it strangely still feels like we have a lot longer to wait, but the excitement has been building this week knowing the time has arrived.

This post is in an attempt to do two things. One: to remind you that the show is back, and begins tonight…just in case you had forgotten. Two: to make sure that every single one of you who has even the slightest bit of love for Futurama puts every TV you can on at 10pm! Tonight brings not one, but two new episodes, and the more viewers that they get for each episode, the better chance we have at getting more than just this one new season. The goal wasn’t just to get this show back, but to get it back for a long, long time, much like we saw with Family Guy. If you have DVR, set every new episode to record, even if you’re watching as it airs. Do what needs to be done!

Geek Peek: First Image From New ‘Futurama’ Released!

Futurama

Back in the beginning of March, it was announced that the desperately-wanted return of Futurama would finally make its second series debut on June 24, 2010 at 10pm EST. Now the very first image from the show’s big comeback has been released, and it’s a bit strange.

The Matt Groening and David X. Cohen series, which ran for four seasons from 1999 to 2003, was canceled by Fox after they severely-mishandled the show and moved it all over the TV schedule thanks to sporting events and not-so-bright executives. This didn’t sit well with fans, and as you know they’ve been fighting to get it back ever since. A fifth season in the form of four direct-to-DVD movies proved the fan-base was stronger than ever, and the sixth season was finally greenlighted almost one year before it’s scheduled return to your TV.

Click on over to check out the gruesome (yet still hilarious) first image from Futurama‘s return!

UPDATED! Good News…Sorta: ‘Futurama’ Gets Some Of Its Cast Back

Futurama

UPDATE #2: I was able to hear back from Fox again, and was told that Billy West and John DiMaggio did indeed sign on along with everyone else. Futurama is back, folks!

UPDATE: The trades are reporting that all of the cast members, including West and DiMaggio, have signed new deals. As I said earlier, someone from Fox told me directly that only the three actors were confirmed so far, and I haven’t heard anything since then, but the big boys seem to have heard differently, so it all seems legit. Rejoice!

Earlier today, the news that we had all been waiting for was announced: the original voice cast had been signed for the upcoming new 26-episode run of Futurama. The news was initially reported by The Star, but has since changed up a bit: I contacted someone at Fox who confirms that Katey Sagal (Leela Turanga), Maurice LaMarche (Kif Kroker/Hedonismbot/Morbo/Donbot/Clamps), and Tress MacNeille (Mom) had all officially signed on. This of course means that the biggest name of them all, Billy West (Philip J. Fry/Dr. John Zoidberg/Prof. Hubert Farnsworth/Zapp Brannigan), and John DiMaggio (Bender Bending Rodriguez) — who admitted that he was confident all cast would return at Comic Con — had not yet signed on, but it is hoped that an agreement will be reached with the rest of the cast soon.

The news comes after the shocking report recently that the original voice actors with stuck in a financial dispute, and that a casting call had gone out to find new voice actors to take on all of the show’s roles.

DVD Review: ‘Futurama: Into The Wild Green Yonder’

Futurama: Into the Wild Green Yonder
DVD
Directed by Peter Avanzino
Starring Billy West, John Di Maggio, Katey Sagal, Lauren Tom, Phil LaMarr, Maurice LaMarche
Fox Home Entertainment
Release Date: February 24, 2009

Futurama aired from 1999 to 2003, but it was canceled after its fifth season. Though it got off a few more seasons than Family Guy and Firefly, it’s definitely classified among the shows that Fox has canceled way too soon.

As we know, Family Guy was brought back and soared to immense success, while sadly, Firefly remains buried and cold. Futurama kind of fell in the middle of these two. It wasn’t brought back to TV, but noticing the fan demand, it was decided that four direct-to-DVD movies would be made to see where the shows popularity stood.

The first three to arrive were Futurama: Bender’s Big Score, Futurama: The Beast with a Billion Backs, and Futurama: Bender’s Game. Bender’s Big Score was loved by fans and did well, while the other two did decent, but weren’t quite as praised as the initial offering. Either way, fans were thrilled just to be getting some fresh content.

The last movie to come along is our review today: Futurama: Into the Wild Green Yonder. It’s a little bittersweet this time, because after this movie, the future of Futurama is uncertain. There’s always the chance that this may just be the last we ever see of the gang.
