Yeah, but her going insane in The Sting came from Leela believing it was her fault Fry was stung, and nearly died.

That was part of it but I think it just made her insanity worse. I think most of it was just the fact that he was dead.

So what will the next animation homage be? Personally I'd love to see Futurama playing on the huge tv and the PE ship flies through past episodes, interacting and altering past plots (non-canon of course).

Leela was in a near-death coma when she believed Fry was dead. Which makes it more a part of a dream than a crazy conscious thought.

From what I saw in the ITWGY trailer, it looks as though the war is between humans and robots.   Could that be a possibility?

Wait, what in the trailer makes you think that?

Because god, I hope not, since we essentially had something of the sort in BWABB.

Judging from the other trailers I doubt that the nature of the war is even suggested in the trailer at all. They like to hide things like that if you haven't noticed.

Isn't it supposed to be a war that's gone on for billions of years? That pre dates humans let alone robots.

I was initially hoping that it'd answer a couple of the questions that I had about the film but instead it just raised more. Though in hindsight I'm pretty pleased this is how it turned out as it raises my anticipation for the film.

February still seems rather far away - but at least it's not April!

That's the only one that was really alluded to in the trailer but even then it wasn't particularly concrete...plus the trailers are often misleading.

It wouldn't surprise me if there is more than one war going on.

My apologies if this October 27, 2008 DXC interview snippet was already posted here, but this sounded somewhat promising.

SciFi.com: Are you talking to Fox about more DVDs?

Cohen: Hope never dies on Futurama, or not anymore. It died once, but once you introduce the idea that you can come back from the dead, then the second time you have to have a little bit of hope that you might come back to life yet again. So we do retain hope of resurrection. Now, what the chances are, I have no idea. The hard facts would seem to support us coming back again. From what we have heard, the DVDs have sold very well, and I have heard the phrase "greatly exceeded" Twentieth Century Fox's expectations. So that's got to be a good sign, you would think. We haven't heard anything, yes or no, so it's familiar territory. ...if it is the last thing we ever do, I think we'll be quite proud of it and it will serve us well as the last episode ever. But we leave ourselves a thin ray of hope in the story and in real life of returning.

http://www.scifi.com/sfw/interviews/sfw19735.html

Also, from toyfare.wizarduniverse.com comes this source for an interview regarding the "last" dvd.  I hate that word "last" in this context!
"Thereís another part of the interview that focuses on next yearís final DVD movie, 'Into the Wild Green Yonder,' and youíll be able to read that as part of our massive 2009 preview in Decemberís ToyFare #138."

I read this interview before, and I think if Fox is saying it "greatly exceedes thier expectations" then I believe we can be fairly confident it will return.

That would be frustrating. Anyway I think it might be a 'gender' war (The return of Gender Bender ? not) and some sort of tournament might be involved. And of course there is the Number 9 Man (with Fry) and his gang of aluminum hatted hobos... sweet.

If this will be the last piece of Futurama anything we'll see I hope they'll do a good great job of course...

Does anyone know if this Seth news true?

"Huge news for fans of the animated kingdom. Not only is David X Cohen super keen on getting the next Futurama film onto the big screen (and in 3D!) but the next Futurama direct to DVD film, Into the Wild Green Yonder, will feature none other than Seth MacFarlane, the 'billion dollar kid' who voices much of The Family Guy, (most notably Peter, Stewie and Brian).

In a phone hook-up earlier today, Cohen revealed that MacFarlane will be singing, and was said that MacFarlane had a 'beautiful singing voice'."

I am excited about the big screen 3D thing, but I'm not getting too excited just yet since this isn't truly confirmed.

So, will Fry survive in this movie or he's gotta die. And if he'll die, how will he revive?

In my opinion he won't die at all. Zoidberg made a wrong diagnosis.

I'm sceptical as to how "dead" he is in the trailer but even if Zoidberg made the correct diagnosis he'll be alive again in time for the end.

I'm surprised as to how many people seem to genuinely believe that they're going to kill Fry off for good. The writers are looking to make new material after ITWGY, too kill off the main character would be madness and as a result it isn't going to happen.

I do think that he'll be presumed "dead" though...possibly leading to him getting separated from the others. It's quite hard to make a good prediction since we don't have a clue in what order events in the trailer/preview framegrabs happen.

That and they said that "it's gonna end on a very sweet and satisfying note," in case it's the last Futurama ever.

Yeah, Fry being dead at the end is going to make a lot of people feel the fuzzies inside.

Apparently the "Fry is dead" scene is all a dream that Zoidberg has, at least according to a Youtube comment which accredits an unnamed internet source.

Probably not true, depends on the source really. Any else heard anything along these lines?

If he's not really dead, I think it might very well be a sort of revenge for all the times Fry has pronounced Zoidberg (and other characters) dead.

If I remember correctly, it seems like he's done that quite frequently, and with an almost disinterested voice.

I lol'd.

There is a chance fry dead will just be some dream, or what if. Something that doesn't end up affecting the characters permanently, but I highly doubt it.

Besides the fact that it looks like Fry dies during the crews visit with Amy's parents, I think the writers are trying to really go full tilt with this movie. Pulling a stunt like that wouldn't fit to well with what the movie is trying to do. The  hope is they use Fry's "death" as a catalyst for Leela.

Indeed.  There's been a trend towards "If Everyone Dies, It's A Good Story" in fiction right now.  The problem is it's gotten to the point where I've mentally prepared myself for character deaths, so it's not really particularly affecting unless it's handled well and the character is given an appropriate send off. 

I really don't think they'll kill him any more than they killed Kif.

That's true and it would (possibly) work if it were a background character.

They wouldn't get away with killing off any of the Planet Express crew though, least of all Fry. Futurama is, after all, the story of Fry's life in the future, Bender may have been identified as the most comical character by the majority and is therefore given a lot of screen time in a similar way to Eric Cartman in South Park but at the end of the day Fry's always been the main focus.

He'll be just fine and as I've said before, I'm actually quite surprised that there's so many people who actually think the writers will kill him off for good.

I like this idea. It's the best and the most strange explanation of Fry's death. A conspiracy against Leela. After this she'll go comletely crazy and...
 eek Damn! I got it! IN MY OPINION, If Fry's death is a theater, Leela will rebel with Amy and Labarbara because of this theater!
And they will begin the war between sexes, and so on...

Perhaps but if you look at some of the screenshots on a webpage linked on the 'movie news thread' there's a screenshot where Leela and the other women appear to have already "rebelled" and taken control of the ship with Fry being locked in a cage of sorts along with the Professor, Zoidberg and Hermes...so unless Fry's already "died" and come back to life by this point I'd be surprised if his death is what drives Leela to rebelling.

I do think that if he actually does "die" that it'll be used to force Leela to "get her act together" for want of a better phrase.

Who knows though?

Every ones expressions in that last pic seem to be "WHAT THE HELL IS THAT!?"...

I think they might have just encountered some brainspawn.

OK. Judging by the things shown in the movie trailer, the order is not as it appears.

In the beginning of the trailer, Fry is wearing a poker hat made from the wierd aluminum foil thing, so he had to have gotten it for some reason, after he met Number 9 man, which is when he recieves it because it is seen he is holding it when he gets hit in the head with some sort of wine/beer bottle by a homeless guy wearing one.


He "died" without the hat, so I am guessing that happened before.

All the screenshots of him in the ship show him with a foil hat, so that must happen in the middle after he meets Number 9 man.

One of the screenshots shows that Leela isn't wearing pink camoflage, and the other she is, but both show Fry with the hat, so the "rebellion" the women have would be in between that period of time. Also, Brannigan's "law" may have been "passed" during that period, if the two are related.



It says that the delivery crew is missing...I am guessing the framegrab where Hermes, Zoidberg, and the Professor are flying the ship, they are looking for them, in which Leela and the women appear, but Bender and Fry are still missing.



They eventually do find Fry, because there is a grab with him in the cage with the other men, with the hat on Fry. But Bender still isn't there...

Don't crazy people generally wear tinfoil hats because they think someone is trying to control or read their minds?  I wonder if the hats that the number 9 man's people wear are for that purpose.  If that's the case, then this movie has brainspawn written all over it.  I've just got to think there's more going on than a battle of the sexes.

You know that rings a bell, I think you're probably going to be right on that, nice thinking.

Plus it's already been confirmed that Fry is once against the only one who can save the universe...so unless he's got another hidden talent that's never been alluded to it seems pretty certain he's going to have to defeat the brainspawn again.

That is a good point. I hope that that is the case, because then the people who think that the Futurama people are forgetting that piece of information about Fry will be happier. I hope that they explain more about him and, of course, "the Other."

And, the brainspawn battle has been going on since the universe was made...

There is something off about the scaling of that last pic... the cage is a bit small.

Fry has his tinfoil hat at the card game Leo is dealing, at the golf game, and there locked up on the bridge, but not in the scene with the nail in his head. Guessing his "death" comes after, the tinfoil hat cult sounds like the kind of thing they would start off with.

If the professor, zoidberg and hermes are all thats left at planet express in the trailer, then they take the ship for some reason, get hijacked by the pink commandos... then how did Fry get there!

Would be cool if the brainspawn arrive just after they hijack the planet express ship, then of course its up to Fry to get them all out of it!

I've just rewatched the trailer of ITWGY.



They seem to be on Mars. But what are the Wongs building? And what about the other people who are lying dead behind the crew?

If that's the case, then this movie has brainspawn written all over it.

I hope there will be some Holophonor stuff, too. I would be quite disappointed if they dropped that plot.
