I think that G4 is doing some Comic-Con coverage in the States, but it's not total coverage. Also, they didn't do a good job with E3 this year (the audio and video weren't in sync) so I don't expect much to come from them. I'll watch it just in case, but I'll definitely be looking on YouTube after the Futurama press conference.

I have a feeling they'll show a "cold opening" clip from BBS at the Comic-Con. Where [like Matt said] they acknowledge their absence from television.

I'll be watching the coverage to see if they get anything...also my dad's going to be there and my mom wants me to tell her if he gets on TV :P

I may watch the coverage, but I'm not totally sure yet.  Considering, you know, it IS G4.  And G4 can be weird...

I have G4 and I'm not sure that they'll cover Futurama. They usually cover comic book and game-related stuff.

No, G4 can be awful, rather than weird. I should know.

I just saw the Bender costume on G4's Comic-Con preview special. They were using him as an example of a "Comic-Con Do" for being creative. The guy was getting a picture done with the droids from Star Wars.

If anybody gets pictures from Comic-Con, be cool and post it in the Convention thread. Optimus Prime would do it.

^Actually the movie will be coming reportedly on 12/4 and it won't be about Zoidberg. Sorry ^^;.

IMDB says the plot is "Planet Express sees a hostile takeover and Bender falls into the hands of criminals where he is used to fulfill their schemes." Of course, the plot could change, we don't know yet.

I bet that's a false plot, like all the ones they spread around about the Simpsons Movie.

Did they ever really spread around false plots, though?  Most of what I've heard about the movie seems to have been confirmed by the trailer (but I guess I'll find out for sure tomorrow night...).

Well I saw The Simpsons Movie today and it was really good, much better than the current show in fact. If anything this proved to me (not that I had any doubts) that the Futurama movies will be truly awesome to the max! I mean as a show The Simpsons is getting stale, and yet they pulled out a fresh decent movie despite the fact The Simpsons isn't as well suited as Futurama to the movie format. So just imagine what the Futurama movies will be like! Truly epic and full of great jokes I'd imagine!...

Otis, I agree with you about Futurama being better suited to the movie format. Only sad part is that it won't make it to the big-screen. I'd have loved to have seen Futurama at the cinema.

I've been told that the trailer had very little material that actually came from the movie.

I just came back from preview night.

Oh my gawd, I saw clips of the new movie at the Fox booth and it looks glorious.

Unfortunately, I was half a convention center away at the time (the Fox booth has these giant TV screens above them, so you can see clips of coming movies on them from many parts of the convention center), so I didn't actually  hear any of the dialogue.  I'll try my best to get closer tomorrow, but the clip appeared randomly and unexpectly (they must be featuring a dozen different new movies on those stupid screens), so I'm not sure how successful I'll be, especially with panels to distract me most of the day.

ANYWAY, enough rambling.  This is what I remember seeing:


Forgive me if I forgot anything; I was honestly shocked I even caught it from the beginning.

Also, I passed the Bongo booth several times, and when I bought an autographed poster from them on my final visit, the seller told me to make Saturday's Futurama panel for the table read.  Not animatic; TABLE READ.

It's possible there may be both, but I'm going to guess we're going to see the Fox commerical in all its glory (those being our clips of interest), and then be treated to a live table read.  Unfortunately, by the time I realized what the seller had told me, I was already gone from the booth, so I didn't ask him to clarify (plus, there's a slim chance that what he told me is incorrect anyway).

Also, I managed to grab a copy of the free comic book (three actually; they gave me one every time I stopped by).  I'd really like to post them here, because it's as much a thank you to the fans as it is a "bridge" explaining what happened during the cancellation, but I don't want to violate any rules, nevermind that I have no idea which board to post them in.       hmpf  If a mod says it's OK, then I'll try to scan them for you guys.

"Exclusive action figure?"  Damn it, I knew I should have paid more attention to that booth.

Bongo was handing out a cute paper mask of Homer's face to patrons (maybe that's the "something you didn't know existed?" ), but they ran out minutes before I got to the booth.  I saw tons of people waiving them around, though, and I think I heard one seller say they were going to get more tomorrow or this weekend.

Surely you know of the mating season variant Zoidberg?

And nah, whatever it is, it's gotta be really cool. Otherwise he'd tell me.  wink

Oh yeah.  I tried to find that booth, but I never ran across it.  The place was surprisingly crowded tonight; I could barely breathe, let alone move.

If they advertise the Futurama DVD as hard as they're advertising The Simpsons Movie, then everybody in the free world will know about it.

Fer Gawd's sakes, I've seen adverts for The Simpsons at least 50 times over the past 4 hours...

I wouldn’t worry, I’m pretty sure they will still show clips. The only reason they wouldn’t is if they weren’t done, but you’ve already seen some clips and they were in color which proves they are done (at least certain parts). Also on the Comic Con website it says that they will be showing exclusive clips. Not only that but last year they showed clips of The Simpsons Movie so everything suggests that they will indeed be showing clips of Futurama this year…

If you put one up on eBay I’d totally buy it! If you want some extra cash I suggest you grab some more…

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

WOW! Could that be the cover of the DVD? Maybe it’s just an advert, either way me likes! For some reason when I click it I can't get it to go bigger though?...

Well, the televisions themselves were wide screen.  I think it was in wide screen, but maybe I was just too far away to notice any stretching.  I'll try to get a closer look today.

It looks remarkably like the clip from AoI, but
.  And Hermes... well, he was still talking, so he's "ok" in some sense of the word.  He just didn't look very happy.   tongue

Dear 1BDI, is it possible to get it from somewhere else, as ImageShack (and YouTube and pretty much everything) is not allowed at my office comp (stupid IT-policy!). Maybe someone could e-mail it to me, pleeeaseeee?
(beck1(at)mail.ru).

Dammit, Russia is so freaking far from Comic Cons, Amazons and all legal sources of dvd's, comixes, merchandise etc...  mad We wouldn't even watch Futurama here if it were not for the bootlegs  frown

btw, doesnt it seem that in spite of all the praises given to new DVDs from their creators, San Diego's clip (many thanks to mighty Officer 1BDI) is not as bright as I would think after Mr. LaMarche's comments at imdb?

Beck: That reeks.   frown  The TinyPic link won't work, either?

And as for the movie not being as "bright" (assuming I'm reading that in the correct context); granted, some of the things I described before sound concerning... or would if they were on another show.  I thought the clips were hilarious (but perhaps I'm easily amused), and my first impression is despity all of the odd and unconventional things going on in that movie, I think the staff is going to pull it off.  The animation alone is brilliant; parts of it looked better than it had on the show.  The "Family Guy catastrophy" didn't even come to mind.

If anyone uploads it to YouTube, it won't be me, seeing as I don't have access to a video camera (that, and to get close enough to hear the sound, I actually have to be in the Fox booth, and I don't think that's something they'd approve of).

I wish someone does get footage and post it, though, so you guys don't have to gauge your view on the movie off of my biased opinions.

ETA: I almost forgot to mention: yes, Otis, it's in widescreen.   love

Awesome! I was wondering if they'd step up the animation seeing as these are movies and I guess they did. the Simpsons Movie had much better animation than any of the episodes, looks like it's the same story with Futurama (not that the episodes were ever badly animated...)
