We just got our hands on the trailer for "Futurama: Bender's Big Score!," the first of four straight to DVD movies, which is set to hit stores on November 27th. While it looks more like a desperate attempt at putting something together, the trailer, narrated by Zapp Brannigan, still features some hilarious scenes. Here is a full plot synopsis:
"As Xmas 3007 approaches, the 'Futurama' crew must fight to save Earth in an epic battle against nudist alien Internet scammers. When the evil naked aliens launch a cyber-attack on Planet Express, they make a shocking discovery: the secret of time travel, mysteriously tattooed on Fry's buttocks. Using their devious nudist software to control Bender, they repeatedly send the beer-fuelled robot back in time to loot Earth of its greatest treasures. Bender's rampage through history has shocking repercussions when he encounters Al Gore (guest-starring as himself) during the 2000 Presidential recount. Meanwhile, Leela finds true love, a beloved crew member suffers an embarrassing decapitation, and Fry learns deep secrets about his destiny and his buttocks."
The other three films, entitled "The Beast with a Million Backs," "Bender's Game," and "The Wild Green Yonder," will be released through 2008. Their plot summaries have yet to be revealed, but all four will be re-edited as 16 TV episodes that will air on Cartoon Network next year.
