By the looks of things, it seems this movie is going to be a little more Zapp/Kiff/Amy heavy. Also Fry is slated to be some sort of zombie spiritual leader. It looks really good.

And even I'm annoyed about the extra disk; why should the fans who preordered the movie months in advance from an online retailer, or chose to purchase the movie from a more convenient store, have to miss out on extra content?  Did anyone even promote the extra disk?  It's not mentioned on their website or anything.

I have the Best Buy bonus DVD AND the knowledge on how to distribute it to others (in various formats; I haven't looked at the DVD yet to see what the content is like).

What's the legality on discussing something like that here?

You should "not" rip it to your hard drive and you should certainly "not" upload it to Youtube or the like and you should definitely "not" discretely and discreetly post the link to it in a public forum such as PEEL.

That would be "horrible," making free advertising content available to the public for no cost.

But seriously, is there any sort of law like that?  It's not like Fox is making any money off of it.

So is there anyway to tell if the Best Buy's box has the extra disk?

This sucks for the rest of us who bought the DVD from other places.  Maybe if Best Buy had advertised that there was a special disk, some of us would have waited and bought it from Best Buy.

I'm having a lot of faith in BWaBB's to renew my love for the show.

Okay, it's not that I don't love the show and can even tolerate BBS, but it definitely wasn't that fantastic to me. 

The wife-person loves it.

Well, in that case, Nixorbo...

No, I certainly did "not" make a high quality 30mb clip of the preview for Beast With a Billion Backs from the Best Buy DVD.

..and..

No, I'm "not" willing to share it to the people here who did not get the 'special' version.

..and..

No, I can't be found with a fserve in the chatroom.

But I reassure you that we're going to pick up the second one where the first one leaves off and your questions will be answered.

The second one guest stars David Cross as a giant, disgusting planet-sized alien from another universe.

JK: And I've heard that that planet sized alien has certain romantic interests...

DXC: .. in every single living being in our universe. Yes. It's another touching and disgusting story to look forward to.

Also, god damn that screenshot of Fry kissing someone who isn't Leela. Crap.

BWBB looks so awesome from the preview! Zapp and the hose on Amy is just the kind of Brannigan treatment that Big Score is lacking!  Can't wait.

Ralph, I also noticed a lack of Leela, but I'm sure you would agree that it would be almost impossible for them to go a whole 80 minutes without some kind of meaningful treatment of the Fry+Leela 'ship.  Fry still living in Bender's apartment makes it pretty obvious that they don't tie the knot, but before it came out who knew Big Score would end up being so heavily dedicated to Fry+Leela?

It's good to see Fry in a mode other than totally screwed-up by the Leela thing. About time he get's back on his feet and back in the world. He deserves better than to get screwed-up by just one woman.

I totally agree.  That scene got a real belly laugh from me, something that BBS didn't do.  The wife-person looked at me as I was laughing as Zapp was hosing Amy's breasts, made a disgusted face and said, " YOU'RE A PIG!"   Like I said, more Zapp and less touchy-feely romance crap.

I have a feeling from the Comic-Con comic that this movie (BWaBB) will be very Fry-heavy, and the next movie will be very Leela-heavy (despite the name 'Bender's Game') and the blow-off will be the last movie...


---WARNING - ANTI-SHIPPER COMMENTS AHEAD---

...unless the sales and rating are good enough for a renewal of the series or more DVD's.  The source that I Had from RDS last year has been pretty spot-on about a lot of things, and has stated that the ending of the Fry/Leela relationship is being saved for the very last episode/DVD.

People just don't get where I'm coming from with the Leela/Fry thing.  Fry's continuing pursuit of Leela makes him look weak and like a complete loser.  The occasional bone of affection that Leela gives him is nothing more than her way of encouraging his pursuit.  He looks weak and pathetic and she looks like a manipulative bitch.

Friendship with Leela?  Bullshit.  He's a 'safe-guy' to have there when nobody else is around to give her compliments and have lunch/coffee and to totally disregard, sometimes very cruelly, when she has 'somebody special' ("I'm dating Chaz, he's very important" ) in her life.

Enough with the 'ship-shit'.  The damned thing with them getting closer at the end of an episode and going back to nothing at the beginning of the next episode is just overplayed.  I could care less if my opinion pisses people off.  I hope it does.  Anything to break this monotonous, predictable story arc of 'the ship'.

So gimme more of the humor and geekery that makes Futurama great, not some 'on-ship' at the end of an episode and 'off-ship' at the beginning of the next episode.  Either hook them up or let the damned thing die a merciful death.

Hard to believe that I was once a huge Leela fan.  Now I can barely stand her.

So it's probably safe now to start discussing hints about movie 4, from BBS commentary.


That last fact suggest what the "Wild Green Yonder" may refer to.

Otis, that was cheesy. But it made my day.

I have a feeling that "The Beast with a Billion Backs" will be the best out of the four Futurama movies. I originally had high hopes for "Into the Wild Green Yonder", but if it's going to involve golf and my usernamesake character, then I don't exactly know where they're going to go with this. Then again, I shouldn't pass first judgment. Let the movie tell all.

i'm starting to get real frustrated with "on-ship"-"off-ship" stuff too. They really should just hook them up or let it die. I don't want it to die but it's getting on my nerves with the one step forward 2 steps back stuff. We need more geekery though definatly.

I'm neutral towards the shipping stuff, really.  ^^

I'm neither for it, nor against it.


To be honest, I rather like how the series has things currently.  Fry chasing after Leela and her not liking him just yet, in my opinion, I think this adds something special and interesting to the show. 


But, if they do have Leela get together with Fry finally, that would be nice.  I wouldn't hate it or anything like that. 

However, at that point, I'd be worried that Fry and Leela getting together would bring too much romance into the series.  And I don't want that to happen.  I like the way the series is now, and I don't want it to change.


And for speculation purposes, I'll just bring my post from the news thread here.

But I'm confused though.  Why was Fry acting so strange?  O.O

Then again, isn't he supposed to get possessed by some alien in the second movie? 

I'm guessing the Octopus alien that had 5 boyfriends has somehow possessed him and took control over his mind.


Aww, I don't like the idea of a possessed-Fry (since he would obviously, be very out of character).  I bet that alien makes him do all kinds of things he normally would never do! 

Aww, poor Fry.  I hope he's gonna be okay.          frown


And for that matter, I also hope both Earth and the Universe will be okay too.  (isn't Fry supposed to be special to the Universe or something, like in "The Why of Fry"?  Uh oh!  I'm getting a very bad feeling about the second movie!  Things aren't looking good for the fate of the Universe!)      eek

I think that could be what's making Fry do all that weird stuff.

Yeah, I was confused about the thing with Fry acting all weird in the trailer to the second movie.

Though, I read in someone's post in this thread that, BWABB will be about the monster with tentacles having a romance and/or relationship with everyone on Earth.  (wow, that sounds weird!)

So yeah, I guess that answers my question about what's going on with Fry, lol.  ^^;


But I do wonder how Fry's gonna get everyone out of this mess.  I'd love it if they had him save the day somehow.  Hmm, maybe the last scene in the trailer, with Fry supposedly bringing all the people up to heaven has something to do with that.

I don't know....


Anyway, I like it when Fry's the hero, that's why "The Why of Fry" is my favorite episode of Futurama.  ^_^

The preview of "The Beast with a Billion Backs" made me think that Fry was bisexual and a robosexual relation was to form between him and Bender, totally destroying the Fry and Leela relationship and the purpose of "The Sting".

I'm inclined to completely agree with this (or, well, your whole post in general there, but this part in particular). I find it incredibly frustrating how both Fry and Leela are portrayed throughout this mess - it's given way to some fantastic episodes but it really has been dragged on too long and simply makes me dislike Leela further/wish Fry would get over it already.

Which is a big part of why I'm looking forward so much to the next movie, since according to the animatic scenes, it looks a lot heavier on Fry and Bender's friendship than Fry pursuing Leela, which I've really always preferred - their friendship is one of the highlights of the show for me.

And the last bit of the animatic is indeed fantastic. Can't wait to see how that plays out in colour and in context.

I just watched the preview and agree with Otis on the voice acting bit. The beast latching on to people reminds me of the original concept for the brain slugs told in oh-so-many DVD commentaries.

The whole Trailor looks brilliant!. It's good to see Fry has slightly gotte over Leela. Also i think a movie about Fry and Bender would be a nce change fropm Fry/Leela, even though at the very end i hope they get together.

It looks like classic Futurama to me. And it is good that they're doing a Fry/Bender story as opposed to a Fry/Leela one. The latter stories get old after so many times. (sorry shippers)

Also, at about 4:33 in the Youtube trailer that Otis posted, you can see what seems to be the Beast in the backround.

I agree. After BBS we could use some Fry and Bender craziness. I do hope they show some kind of reaction to what happened in BBS though. They didn't really say what anybody thought about the Lars thing.
