Has anyone seen Al Gore's new Documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth"?  There is a Futurama Clip in it.

Haven't seen the movie, but I assume it's the clip from "Crimes of the Hot".  I saw that same clip shown at a speech on global warming that Gore gave a couple years ago.

No, but I've seen your avatar.

Eh-hem.

If it's a documentary, could somebody check the credits, to see if 'Futurama' is mentioned? I think Al is a fan, he starred in two epidodes and his daughter wrote 'Leela's Homeworld'.

Matt Groening is thanked in the credits.  And yes, i believe the clip is from Crimes of the Hot.

Also, Christopher Tyng is credited for the original music in the clip.  I didn't see if anyone else from the show was credited though.

Interesting movie.  It's definitely worth seeing, and it was cool to see Futurama on the big screen, as well as seeing it actually being used as part of a social good.

I know the movie was released in select cities May 24th, but does anyone know when it opens nationwide? I've tried to find the answer but have come up empty handed. any help is great, thanks.

It's basically already out nationwide now (opened this weekend), though you might need to live near a major city to see it since it's found more in the independent theaters than the big chains and such.  Just do a search in your area and you might be able to find a place showing it.

That was so bad i think it gave me cancer! I'm just kidding, it wasn't too bad the animation was crappy though, maybe thats why it didn't have the futurama feel to it, not for me anyway.

I'm sorry, but that just wasn't funny, futurama is supposed to be funny!! If that was the first futurama footage you'd ever seen then you wouldn't be keen to watch it again. Your judgement is clouded by the fact that you know futurama is brilliant. All I'm saying is that if I told my friends I loved futurama, then we watched that clip they'd just think I was crazy.

Pfft!
Don't you tell me how my judgment is clouded, ye mere whippersnapper!
My judgement is clouded by many years of intense studies of the demon rum.

However, your logic is sound, and I applaud it.

Here's a link to the 'Futurama' style trailer for that movie:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BjrOi4vF24

And here's a transcript of the trailer (written myself) for those of you too lazy to click on the link.   wink


(Burst of static)
(Screen shows a presidental-looking logo with is labeled 'Former Vice-President of the United States')
Narrator: Stand by for a terrifying message from Al Gore!
(Cut to)

(Scene showing Al Gore standing in front of a backdrop containing a picture of Earth)
Al Gore: Hello, I'm Al Gore, and I'm here to scare you about global warming. If we don't take immediate action, our planet, Earth,
(Motions to Earth)
Al Gore: Will become a deadly smogball that chokes out all human life.
(Camera pulls out to reveal Bender standing next to Al Gore, drinking a beer)
Bender: Good! More beer for the robots! Ha ha ha! (Drinks)
Al Gore: Quiet, Bender.
(Turns back to the camera)
Al Gore: We're melting the polar ice caps, ruing killer hurricanes, poisoning the air with noxious gases-
(Bender finishes drinking and throws the beer away, then burps, surrounding Al Gore with thick green exaust)
Al Gore: *Cough*, *Cough*. Look, it's all in my movie.
Bender: Oh, you're in a movie? What do you play? A burned-out cop, a street-wise pimp trying to save his little brother from the long night?
Al Gore: Yes, I play a street-wise pimp. With a hybrid pimp-mobile.
Bender: Boring!
Al Gore: It's not boring! I'm trying to save us all from certain death!
Bender: Deebee daba certain death! Less talk more action!
Al Gore: You want action? Here's some action!
(Al Gore reaches off screen and grabs a baseball bat, and starts wacking Bender over the head, over and over)
Bender: Ow, oo ah, ow oh a ow, doo ah, boring! OW!
(Cut to)

(Screen is black, with text that says 'an inconvienent truth, now in theaters, www.climatecrisis.net')
Narrator: 'An Inconvienent Truth', the movie that will make you feel like you should probably do something!
(Cut to)

(Al Gore standing by a recycle bin containing a broken Bender)
Al Gore: And don't forget to recycle.
Bender: An nummy numma de cyca... Oh...
(Cut to)

(The former vice-president logo reappears briefly, to be covered quickly by one's and zero's a la 'The Matrix')
(Credits roll)
(Burst of static)


Hope this helps anyone who can't use YouTube.  smile

Of course it didn't have the Futurama feel (except the narrator..that was spot on, considering the circumstances).  Bender was noticeably off model in several aspects (fingers, eye storage, short body, eyes that change shape w/out proof of their bulbness), but it had a charm to it at the same time.

Still, no where near the par of "Global Warming, or None Like It Hot," but kudos on the effort.
