OK, I've trawled through the original 4 DVD Movies thread for actual news.  Please, try to keep this thread relatively clean, so that it will be easy to find actual, factual news regarding the movies.

Reaction to stuff is good, but please keep moderation in mind.

The self-control kind of moderation, not the website moderators kind.

Actually, them too.

IMDb is now listing all four Futurama direct-to-DVD movies.
The first one, "Bender's Big Score," of course.
The as-yet unnamed "Futurama Movie 2," "Futurama Movie 3," and the fourth, "Into the Wild Green Yonder."

"Bender's Big Score," is the only one with content, so far.

Quick (and probably stupid) question about Maurice LaMarche's post on IMDb: what does ADR stand for? Is that the abbreviations for either the second or third Futurama Movie, or is he referring to something non-Futurama? Thanks.

additional dialogue recording. It means they'll bring the actors back to record altered lines. It's sometimes called Automated dialogue replacement.

It's odd that there's no puns or parodies with these titles. That's not very Futurama-ish.

Noticing that he is on IMDB, why hasn't anybody invited Maurice to PEEL yet?

An interview with Lauren Tom (voice of Amy)
 http://tv.ign.com/articles/801/801261p1.html

Most important excerpts (relating to the return of the show) below:

"I asked Tom about her return to Futurama, and she told me "We just did sixteen episodes and we just recorded the last four, and that was a big tear-fest."
...
As for the show continuing past these additional 16 episodes, Tom remarked, "We're keeping our fingers crossed that it will go on and have more of a life, because when we did the last table read, [Executive Producer] David X. Cohen said 'Welcome to the very last, last, last episode of Futurama …until the next last one!' So hopefully the fans will rally together again. Hey, it worked for Jericho!"
...
As for whether she was surprised to hear they would be returning to do more Futurama at all, Tom replied, "Completely! I think we were down for what, two, three years, so it was really just a blast from the past. But I'm so happy, because it's an incredible group of people. We have so much fun!"

Here's the entire rundown of Futurama-related Comic-Con events. I had posted this in the Speculation thread on July 9th...

 
Quote
I went to the Comic-Con 2007 website to see when and who would be on the Futurama panel. It said it will be on Saturday, July 28th. Here's a short summary:

 
Quote
3:30-4:30 Futurama—Matt Groening is proud to announce the long-awaited return of the animated sci-fi comedy classic Futurama! Matt and executive producer David X. Cohen will be on the dais, accompanied by writer Ken Keeler, animation directors Peter Avanzino and Dwayne Carey-Hill, and for the first time together on stage in any universe, actors Billy West (Fry), Katey Sagal (Leela), John DiMaggio (Bender), and Maurice LaMarche (Kif Kroker)! The cast and crew will entertain your questions and present a sneak peek at Bender’s Big Score! in glorious wide-screen format! Moderated by Bill Morrison. Ballroom 20

Also, here's some other Futurama related things going on at Comic-Con:

 
Quote
Thursday July 26th:
2:00-3:00 Bongo Comics Sneak Peek—Bongo Comics offers a mouth-watering preview of upcoming projects featuring The Simpsons and Futurama. Managing editor Terry Delegeane and creative director Bill Morrison host a panel featuring the writers and artists who create the comics and books based on Matt Groening’s phenomenal TV shows. Find out what’s in the future for Futurama Comics and what to expect in Simpsons Comics and Simpsons Super Spectacular. Plus, Thomas Lennon (Reno 911), Tone Rodriguez (Violent Messiahs), and Gerry Duggan (The Last Christmas) will be on hand to talk about their terrifying contributions to this fall’s star-studded issue of Bart Simpson’s Treehouse of Horror! This is a ”must-attend” panel for all fans of The Simpsons and Futurama—and anyone looking for a place to sit down! Room 3

Saturday July 28th:
10:30-12:00 Animation Writers Caucus: Holy Bleep, Batman! or Censorship and Animation—What can't you say in a cartoon? What can't you show? Why? Who says? Writers and producers of daytime and primetime animated television series tell tales out of school about what they didn't get to do and what they got away, in a panel sponsored by the Writers Guild of America's Animation Writers Caucus. Featuring panelists Alan Burnett (Batman), Aaron Ehasz (Avatar), Eric Kaplan (The Drinky Crow Show), Craig Miller (Curious George), Andrew Nichols (Jimmy Neutron, Will & Dewitt), and Patric Verrone (Futurama). Room 8

10:45-12:00 The Simpsons–Having just aired its 400th episode, The Simpsons has now released its first feature film. Join members of the team responsible for both and find out how they did it, including Matt Groening (creator and executive producer), Al Jean (executive producer/head writer), David Mirkin (former executive producer), Matt Selman (executive producer), Michael Price (co-executive producer), David Silverman (director of The Simpsons Movie), Matt Warburton (supervising producer), Don Payne (consulting producer), and Yeardley Smith (voice of Lisa Simpson). Moderated by Bill Morrison. Hall H

That's all the Futurama related things at Comic-Con's schedule that I found. Sounds like a very interesting weekend for Futurama fans.

So there's all that's going on in San Diego this weekend that you should pay attention to. It's definitely cool that we have a lot on our plate for this year's Comic-Con. If you can't get to San Diego, G4 covering Comic-Con starting at 7pm EDT Thursday and Friday, and there's always YouTube!


Also, where've you been lately, Spy? If you want some more up-to-date Futurama news, we usually break them in this and the Speculation thread a week or two before CGEF posts it.

I'm posting this here, rather than in the speculation thread, because this comes straight from the "free" Bongo comic handed out at Comic-Con.  I'm not entirely sure whether Bongo was serious when they drew these panels or not, but just in case they were, I've transcribed them:


So there you have it; Bongo's interpretation of the next four movies.

I've already posted this in the speculation thread, and I didn't want to put it here until I got a better look at the ad itself, but I guess since it's official information it belongs here after all.  I saw (but did not hear, sadly) this playing over the Fox booth at Comic-Con earlier tonight:


If I manage to see it up close, I'll try to write a better description for you guys.  These were fully colored and animated clips, not animatics, so I believe most of them (if not all of them) will be in the final movie.

That was my first thought as well; hence my confusion as to their accuracy....

I saw this hanging up as a giant banner inside the Fox booth, so I'm going to assume it's ok to post here:


It seems to be the official advertisement poster for Bender's Big Score.

(Sorry for the shiny edge; the comic's glossy and my scanner did its best.)

ETA: If you guys are having trouble seeing the large version of the picture, I've uploaded it to TinyPic here.  It's a big image, hence the linkage.

"Futurama" is coming back. 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment is expected to announce at Comic-Con International the first original "Futurama" productions since the animated show went off the air in 2003.

"Futurama: Bender's Big Score" will be released Nov. 27 directly to DVD. It's the first full-length "Futurama" feature based on the TV series; three more films will be released individually through 2008, all with the original creative team and voice cast on board.

The plot centers on the "Futurama" crew fighting to save Earth in an epic battle against nudist alien Internet scammers. Bender the robot soon comes under the alien's spell and is sent back in time to loot the Earth of its greatest treasures; at one point he runs into Al Gore, who guest stars as himself, during the 2000 presidential recount. Other guest stars include Coolio and Sarah Silverman.

"Futurama" is the second Fox TV series to spawn a made-for-DVD program. Two years ago Fox's home entertainment unit released a direct-to-video feature based on the "Family Guy" series, "Family Guy Presents: Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story."

So, half the crap I wrote last night about that ad I saw at Comic-Con turned out to be wrong and or incomplete.

I actually took notes today, so hopefully this rendition is more accurate, especially since I was actually able to hear some of it:


Bongo didn't have much news concerning the movies that we didn't already know, but they said Saturday's panel would feature an event of the sort that has never been done in Comic-Con before.  I thought they might have been referring to the table read, but I can't believe no one's done a table read at Comic-Con before....

Gawd, that G4 booth....  Whoever thought that was a good idea to stick that right next to one of the main entrances needs to have some sense smacked into them.  That booth's caused nothing but backlog every time I run into it.

And you're all welcome.   smile Futurama was the main reason I wanted to attend this year, and after reading recounts of past conventions that I had to miss on CGEF, I feel it's only fair to share as much as I can with the site now.

Re: Futurama Booth...  If any booth can claim that name, it's the Bongo booth.  The Fox booth has one poster and runs that ad once an hour or so, and that's really it for Futurama.  Bongo has all of the comics sprawled on their tables,posters and calendars up for display, and one side of their booth has a nifty picture of Fry, Leela, and Bender painted on it (the other side belongs to OFF). They even have a TV installed; every time I pop by, there're little kids sitting on the rug watching old Simpson episodes.  I'm hoping now that the movie's premiered they'll start adding Futurama to the lineup.

I saw the calendars at Bongo's booth, too.  I might pick one up on Sunday if they have any left; I'd forgotten how hard those are to find....

Nothing new to report today about the movies, I'm afraid.  One of the artists (at least I think it was one of the artists...) said that the table read at tomorrow's panel will be taken from the free comic, rather than the movie script; as Bill Morrison is moderating that panel, I trust their word.  Fox was handing out temporary Bender tatoos at their booth (as opposed to... nothing).  That's essentially it.  frown  Hopefully I'll have much more to post tomorrow night.

There isn't much in this report on the panel, though apparently they only did a table reading of the free comic, and no trailer.   frown

The picture is somewhat of interest- it's the first one to include Fry and Leela with Bender. There's speech bubbles, but the image is way too blurry to read. However, if you look carefully in the poster, Leela is indeed wearing some pair of sunglasses.

That image Frida posted is one of the first pages of the comic they read from.  The speech bubbles say:

Narrator: Four years ago today, an intriguing question was posed...
Bender: Guess who's back, baby?!
Narrator: An innocent question met with an innocent answer....

(The "innocent answer" is simply "SILENCE;" the crew returns to an empty Planet Express hanger after their big "network" delivery.)

As for the orchestra, I think someone (Cohen?) said they were simply replacing it with a synthesizer, and insisted it would sound nearly identical to the score we're used to.  Also, the writers evidentally had to take a pay cut (it was the other major "fund loss" that was mentioned).

ETA: Chris Tyng was confirmed as being back on staff, so I don't think we'll have to worry about "recycled music."

The Q'n'A session was short-lived, sadly, because the answers to the few questions asked were very, very long.  They were entertaining answers, and I enjoyed them, but... I must have been 6th or 7th in line initially, the guy ahead of me was actually at the microphone, and they suddenly announced that the panel was over.  So, I never got my question in.        frown

Not all was a total loss, though.  David Cohen was kind enough to sign my free Bongo comic before we were all chased out of the room.        big grin

The table read was awesome, and the clip (which was an extended version of the ad I kept seeing at Fox's booth) was hilarious and a bit more enlightening.  I'll try to type up what I remember from it later tonight.

I don't think he gets many autograph requests...

He would have gotten mine if they'd actually had a chance to stick around after the panel.  I think the only reason I got one from DXC was because he had to borrow my pen. =P  That, and he's really nice in person.

I'd love it if you could add your thoughts to these spoilers: I'm missing pieces of jokes and quotes that my notes didn't fill, and I know I accidentally ignored some stuff as I was writing other things down.

Speaking of which:


Also of note (this just comes from the panel in general):

* According to DXC: all of the writers on staff are veterans to the show, the entire voice cast is back, and Christopher Tyng is still composing the music.
* Ken Keeler wrote half of the 16 episodes, including the final episode of this "season"/movie series.
* Writers Eric Kaplan and Patric Verrone also appeared on the panel, which makes me wonder if they're also working on the movie (although Verrone may have only been there because he wrote the mini comic).
* Someone questioned the potential for more seasons after these 16 episodes, and the answer was, essentially, "if you want it, let the networks know!"  I'm still kind of confused as to whether we're supposed to aim this want at Comedy Central or Fox....
* The movie is in widescreen and high def format.      love


ETA: And you're all very welcome.  It was my pleasure to be able to do this for you guys.    smile

According to: http://tv.ign.com/articles/808/808965p1.html

"The crew is working on 60 new episodes of Futurama, which will be done in widescreen."

I assume that that 60 should read 16, but maybe not...

You mean she's wearing a sunglass.  wink

As for this 60 episodes thing, I think it was probably just someone mis-hearing the number 16.  If you don't articulate it, or if you say it fast, "16" can sound like "60."

You did an amazing job!  There are only a few things I would add regarding the trailer.  My audio recording is very, very bad but allows some checking.  (The ComicCon hosts said not to made video recordings, said nothing about audio).


Other impressions from the panel:
    -David Cohen and the writers seem as uncertain as anyone else how the movies will be converted into episodes.  Ken Keeler said that normally a movie has three acts (setup, conflict, resolution?) and a TV episode has three parts for two commercial breaks, leading to a 12 part structure, which meant that things would have to be rearranged around.  But the key was to write them first as movies.  Finally, he stopped and simply concluded, "It wasn't easy".  That got some laughs.

-Was it just me, or was David X Cohen really nervous before running the extended clip (finished just 36 hours earlier)?  The entire panel seemed to loosen up as time went on.

-All the producers and writers were really anxious to state that the lower budget would not affect what is on screen.  The cuts were in the live orchestra (damn) and writers salaries (not sure it the latter was a joke).  Since Patrick Verrone is on the board of directors of the Writers Guild, David joked that "because of Patrick we weren't able to use a synthesizer to replace the writers."
Personally, I thought the animation was smoother and richer than in the TV episodes.  Also, they emphasized that Chris Tyung(sp) had composed original music.

-The seating capacity of Ballroom 20 was 4200, and it seemed to be pretty full for Futurama, but it was also full for the previous two panels on Heroes and Battlestar Galactica.

-They kept running out of the promotional comic at the Bongo booth, but had copies of the 2007 and 2008 calendars for sale.

-The table read was fun.  Apparently this was the first time Katey Sagal had tried to speak a voice other than Leela's (as a Box executive).  Her fellow actors seemed really delighted that she did so and that she was there at all--Billy West started dancing on the stage behind the table when she showed up. 

-I'm a little sad that there were no particular questions directed at Katey--this apparently was her first time at a comiccon after all.  But then again, I wasn't too impressed by the quality of most of the questions.  One guy asked a question about the Simpsons movie, which made him really popular in that room, I tell you.  David Cohen replied "I see you're going to get beat up walking out of here."  The actors had a great time with a question on how they created their voices for the characters.  I never knew that Bender was a combination of three different characters.  I personally was impressed at how well Billy West can imitate line hum and mike feedback.

-I never realized that Animaniacs and Married with Children were so popular, based on applause.

-As Officer has stated, Ken Keeler has written the first and last movies, which will be "the second time we end Futurama for the last time," as David Cohen said.

-There are going to be more "dick jokes" and butt shots in the movies, as is clear already.

Haha, I made an audio recording, too.  But I was clapping and laughing so much that most of it was too garbled to make out, and then I turned it off for the Q'n'A because I didn't want to be caught with a recorder while I was in line (even if they never said anything about audio).  Incidentally, I seem to have a very annoying laugh, and an even more annoying fangirl scream. :P

Ah, the Simpson guy.  He was among the questioners I wished had stayed in their seats....

Thanks for adding to the spoilers, JustNibblin'  To be honest, I didn't notice if DXC was nervous in the beginning or not.  I think my head was buried in my stupid notebook at the time (because I was so paranoid the audio wouldn't turn out that I was still taking hand-written notes).

I can't speak for JustNibblin,' but you guys are more than welcome to spread the spoilers that I've posted around (credit is nice, of course       wink ).

There was not much going on relevant to the movie today.  I was only at Comic-Con for a few hours, because I only wanted to see one panel that happened to feature Maurice LaMarche and Tom Kenny (and half a dozen other VAs).  Watch for it on YouTube, because it's hilarious; LaMarche even got us to rally for Frank Welker's appearance at next year's convention. :3

Before the panel, I hit Bongo's booth and saw Matt Groening there.  He was signing more posters for the booth to sell, and eventually signed merchandise that estatic fans had bought at the booth that morning.  I already had a signed poster from him, so I skipped that.  After the panel I went to the Nickelodeon booth (which is, oddly enough, right next to the Bongo booth) and had Tom Kenny sign my Futurama comic, when he told me he wasn't in any of the coming movies.

Now, that might not seem newsworthy to some, but that had me raising an eyebrow:


He went on to say that most of the cast can do hundreds of voices anyway, which was why he wasn't needed.  I didn't want to press him on it, but I wasn't sure if he was implying other VAs were going to voice his preexisting characters or if he simply wasn't hired to voice any new/minor characters because of the already great vocal variety.  If it's the former, I admit I'm going to be a little ticked off, but I guess I should be happy that every other VA came back.

(EDIT 8-15-07: My original post was lost in the thread pruning, but I just wanted to throw in that [-mArc-]/DXC confirmed the exact opposite of this a few days after I posted this, and that I have no idea what's really going on regarding Kenny and his involvement (or lack thereof) in the movies.  I believe what he told me, but I don’t doubt DXC’s word, either, so maybe something drastic changed between that Sunday and whenever that news was uploaded.)

ETA: When JustNibblin' says the room was full, it was seriously full.  I got in line for the Battlestar Galactica panel so I could get a seat for the Futurama panel, and there were several times when I was standing in line that I seriously thought I would not get in for the Futurama panel (convention center workers even kept popping up at our end of hte line to tell us "only 20 people have left the ballroom; this line hasn't moved for x hours; you're not going to get in."  I think I finally got in 15 minutes into the BSG panel (thank God), so the workers were obviously... not giving us the full story, at any rate.     roll eyes

I believe Katey was doing a second voice just for the table read.  No sign she will be doing a second voice in the series.

Forward the info wherever you want, Chou. 

I suspect the comic book will float onto the Internet, and the trailer should surface shortly (it *is* a promotional trailer, after all).

One other little story about the line to get in.  People had been waiting 3 hours at the front to get in the Galactia panel, but I decided to give it 30 minutes.  Two guys in front me were starting to complain "Why are all these people going to see  Futurama?"  The other guy said "Dunno.  Futurama is always a lot more popular at ComicCon than the Simpsons for some reason."

I mentioned to them that Futurama was coming back from cancellation so there may be some resurging interest.  "Damn, we're never going to get in."  Then they left.  And then the line started to move.  Sacrifice is noble and good.  Especially if others do the self-sacrificing.

I've been hunting around YouTube for video footage, but I haven't found anything beyond clips for the new Avatar season.  hmpf I'm hoping people are just waiting until they get back home to upload any footage they took....
