A Carbon-Neutral Production!

The Intergalactic Hot Tentacle Action Arrives
Exclusively On DVD June 24 From Fox Home Entertainment

CENTURY CITY, CA - Good news, everyone! Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment (TCFHE) proudly presents the second of four all-new feature-length adventures when Futurama: The Beast With A Billion Backs invades Earth on DVD June 24. In their latest extraterrestrial exploits, Bender, Fry, Leela and crew encounter a repulsive, planet-sized creature with billions of probing tentacles...and soon find themselves involved in a disturbing - yet sensuous - interplanetary love story.

With guest appearances from David Cross (Alvin & The Chipmunks, "Arrested Development"), Brittany Murphy ("King of the Hill," Sin City), Dan Castellaneta ("The Simpsons") and world-renowned physicist Stephen Hawking, The Beast With A Billion Backs may finally meet its match!

Futurama: The Beast With A Billion Backs is jammed with bonus material, including commentary from Matt Groening and David X. Cohen, cast members Billy West, John DiMaggio and Maurice LaMarche, director Peter Avanzino, and producers Claudia Katz, Lee Supercinski, and Michael Rowe; an entire 30-minute "Lost Futurama Adventure"; featurettes "Meet Yivo!" (behind the scenes with David Cross) and "A Brief History of Deathball"; a sneak peek at the next Futurama epic, Bender's Game; storyboard animatic; deleted scenes; bloopers, and more. Futurama: The Beast With A Billion Backs will be available for a suggested retail price of $29.98 U.S./$37.98 Canada.

This will be the studio's second carbon-neutral DVD release - its first being Futurama: Bender's Big Score - solidifying Futurama, Twentieth Century Fox Television (TCFTV) and TCFHE's commitment to reducing their impact on climate change.

In Futurama's latest and most tentacle-packed epic, space itself rips open, revealing a gateway to another universe. But what lies beyond? Horror? Love? Or maybe both, if it happens to contain a repulsive, planet-sized monster with romantic intentions! Nothing less than the fate of human and robot-kind is at stake as the Futurama crew takes on The Beast With A Billion Backs.
