I was watching BBS this evening when I noticed something strange.  When time-duplicate Fry discovers that he's Lars he runs off and freezes himself.  He then unfreezes in 3002.  The beginning of Bender's Big Score takes place at the end of 3007.  Why did Lars wait around for five years for the day when Leela would show up at Dr. Cayhill's office?  Why not just unfreeze himself sometime in 3007?

Well, then it wouldn't be consistent with when Michelle got unfrozen!

Really, though - he probably just didn't remember the exact year. He spent twelve years in the past (most of which was spent appreciating a chance with his family/dog again, and pining for Leela/Leelu, so he was pretty occupied and probably didn't think of going back to the future), so the exact year probably slipped his mind. So rather than overshoot, he played it safe and set it for 3002 - besides, the wait would make it seem sweeter, I guess, and he got the maturity to deal with that wait.

Lars could easily have refrozen himself as soon as he unfroze with Michelle.  In fact, that's exactly what the time-travelling Fry that didn't become Lars did when he fell into the tube with the original Fry.  As soon as original-Fry unfroze on December 31, 2999, the other Fry that was in the tube just reset the timer and closed the door again.

Also, I really dont think that Fry would have forgotten what year it was when he went back in time.  He's dumb, but not that dumb.

It doesn't have much to do with simply forgetting it or being stupid - twelve years is a long time and he's pretty preoccupied for those twelve years. He knew the general time, but I doubt he could remember the exact year.

I'm getting bored with the no news situation on Beast With A Billion Backs so lets speculate and talk about it some more. I watched the animatic again and it's just as awesome as I remembered. I dunno about everyone else but I get the feeling this will be the best movie out of the four, or at least definately better than the first. It just looks awesome. I wonder when we'll get it? I predict April/May. Hopefully no later but you never know...

I was predicting a 6-month break between movies earlier, but it's almost February and we still haven't heard anything about the second DVD.  hmpf

I'm actually looking more foward to "Bender's Game" than "Billion Backs," but I agree that the animatic looks very encouraging.  It feels more like a return to the season 2/3 humor and situations, though I'm not entirely sure how to justify that feeling (although I suspect much of it is due to the return of Odgen Wernstrom).

Funny you should say that, I was thinking exactly the same thing. I much prefer Season 2 and 3 to Season 4 so that can only be a good thing! It just looks like classic Futurama to me, I just hope we hear something else on it snoon. Surely it can't be too far off because the animatic was quite extensive...

I had to google search to uncover this thread.

Now that it's July, "The Beast with a Billion Backs" has already been leaked on YouTube and released on DVD for over a month now, it's about time that this thread resurfaces for any speculative tidbits reported back from this year's Comic Con-attending PEELers, if there are any, for that matter.

Anyways, I actually wanted to predict some of "Bender's Game", which the trailer was included on "The Beast with a Billion Backs"'s special features. Our knowledge on the film is limited at the time, but hopefully by the time Saturday's panel rolls around, we'll recieve more information on both "Bender's Game" and the future "Into the Wild Green Yonder". From what I can decipher from so many news articles and the trailer, "Bender's Game" focuses on a fantasy world, the prices of dark matter, and several duels with Mom and her dragon counterpart with Bender's imagination involved in whatever amount of aspects there are. At the moment, I can't tell when reality ends and Bender's imagination begins. I could only take a wild guess that Bender's take on the world begins right before Planet Express collides with Mom. Well, that's not my point for this sudden revival, but... anyways, getting straight to it, we already know that the rise in dark matter prices will be a nod to today's rise in gasoline prices. In today's "crisis" (not quite like the 70's), many have begun to blame the companies that provide the oil and automobile producers for the taunting rise. If we relate this to Futurama's plotline of rises in dark matter prices, then I do believe that Mom Corporation is responsible for the price changes as they do seemingly hold a monopoly in the universe in that category, producing oil for nearly all robots and producing all robots for that matter. This could explain why the crew will be fighting Mom. Either that, or there is the less-plausible theory of the crew going and fighting Mom, blaming her for the dark matter prices, but then only find out that she is not the one responsible. Hey, it's just a thought.

I think that the oil speculation is a very plausible storyline, Frida; mom is always trying to gain wealth and power, scruples be damned. Perhaps she will get put in her place with the next movie.
I also wonder if there will be any more drama with Hubert and mom, it seems they would have to address each other at some point in BG. I would love to see some, their interaction in Mother's Day kills me every time  laff

Wow, these movies are predictable...

Anyways, I wanted to bring up some thoughts about both "Bender's Game" and "Into the Wild Green Yonder".

Going in chronological and alphabetical order, where did the idea come from that all the posters at Comic Con where the cover art for "Bender's Game"? I really don't think that those posters are of the cover, but rather just promotional art. Just like the previous year's Comic Con, they did have promotional posters advertising "Bender's Big Score", but it wasn't for the cover of the DVD. Besides, you'd think that the art would look a bit different from the other two considering it is taking on a Medival ambiance.

(yes, that was a little rant-ful, but, going on)...

The other thing I wanted to bring up is a scene I believe is going to occur in "Into the Wild Green Yonder". During the Comic Con panel, they mentioned that the Waterfall family will return as board members. Knowing that the only names of the Waterfalls in the series had Free as a name (or names sounding close to Free such as Frida), I have a strange idea that there will be a scene where all the Waterfall family board members are arguing amongst each other and they're all referring to each other by the name "Free", yet each one knows which Free the name is refering to (or something of the sort, I just wanted to throw it in the wind). Hey, it's just a thought I wanted to get out of my mind before it decays into a dead, useless braincell that requires hours of clear thought to recover.

Man, this post was crap.

Oh, I thought that the DVD cover was pretty much confirmed; but on the basis of what, I'm not sure.

As for Bender's Game - I wonder why they decided to combine a dark matter/presumably Nibblonian-related storyline with dragons and fantasy. Those seem like relatively divergent ideas. Curious if there's some correlation there, or only just a tenuous connection.

I doubt if there is any involvement with the Nibblonians at all in this one. From what we've seen in the other two movies, the writing staff seems to be keeping distance from anything connected with the prophecy (though I suspect they're saving it for the grand finale in "Into the Wild Green Yonder" ). If anything, I'd expect some callbacks to the Professor/Mom relationship, though it still seems like this will just be another fun ride like "The Beast with a Billion Backs".

No, by "presumably Nibblonian-related" I didn't mean the so-called 'prophecy' - right, I wouldn't really expect them to address anything about that at all until Wild Green Yonder; if even then. I was referring to the dark matter plot arc and the fact that said matter is, um, 'emitted' by Nibblonians.
Also, I believe DXC said some things about the Nibblonians were going to be "explained" in BG, didn't he?..

Oh yeah. I guess I forgot to mention that in my post. I intended on including that, but as the post was in my head it didn't transfer well onto the thread.

They may make some mention of how dark matter is produced by Nibblonians, but I think they'll just blindsight that fact. It probably won't be necessary to the plot as far as we know, in fact it will probably complicate it more.

Well, actually they could mention it. Ever since Nibbler ate himself (dissappeared to another unforeseeable dimension or universe by my prediction), the Planet Express ship no longer had a free supply of dark matter. Now that they have to start purchasing fuel themselves, the crew, like almost everybody else who runs on dark matter, is annoyed. The Planet Express crew, because they're already annoyed with buying the fuel in the first place, is built up with anger to the point where they begin to seek out the cause. Yeah, that could work.

I just came onto a crazy idea for a possible plot (thanks for bringing this up. km). If Mom's the only distributor of dark matter throughout the universe, and the Nibblonians are the only producers of dark matter, is it possible that Mom is holding millions of Nibblonians captive on a ranch of some sort to yield their feces for profit?

From what I can recall from the Comic Con panel posted online, I think he only mentioned that Nibblonians (amongst other things) will be discussed in-depth in the next two movies. I don't think he identified the specific movie, but I could only begin to guess that since "Into the Wild Green Yonder" seems to be more factual, I believe that "Bender's Game" will just be another "pretty good" movie.

I never thought of that but that's a really good point. Nice work Frida.

I have a quick question for people that listend to Beast with a Billion Backs commentary. As i was editing commentary transcript at another website, someone said "David X. Cohen says the word, "fuck" uncensored in the commentary. This is the first time the commentary track has contained the word." I know John said shit in 30% iron cook commentary, but did anyone notice David saying the F word or did i somehow miss it?

I really doubt he would.

I dunno, nothing in that list of yours strikes me as being movie plot-generating material.  If I had to guess Id say that there will be something green (that we dont know about yet) that will appear in one of the first three movies that will then become the basis for the fourth movie. 

Well, in BBS the nudistts were pink, BWBB  Yivo was...not green so theres only benders game left

In the trailer for the fourth movie, it said in the Bender's Game review that Fry is supposed to die.  If he does die, (I hope he doesn't) here's my theory.  We all remember in The Why of Fry that Nibbler tells Fry he's the final hope of the universe.  So, maybe in the fourth movie Into The Wild Green Yonder,  Nibbler tells Fry about needing a savior.  Then Fry is supposed to do something Herculean to save the world, and be a martyr and die. 

Maybe the purpose of the 'Number 9' man is maybe he's Fry's replacement....  Something to think about. 

As for Bender's Game, I'm excited about it.  I've always liked medeval history.

i personally feel that the number nine man is a time paradox duplicate of Fry. He will have to be the saviour and he will die and therefore fry will die

I'm going to come out sounding brash since I am sick and I don't care much about my writing right now than getting this out but one, none of us have seen the trailer, two, the Comic Con panel already announced there'd be some kissing between Fry and Leela, and three, "Into the Wild Green Yonder" is supposed to include the scene with every single character that's ever appeared in the series.
