Century City, CA - The future is back...and it's cleaner than ever! Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment presents the first of four direct-to-DVD Futurama
adventures when Futurama: Bender's Big Score
makes its highly anticipated DVD debut on November 27. As the studio's first carbon-neutral release, the carbon impact of the production, manufacture and distribution of the Futurama Bender's Big Score
DVD was directly assessed and actively reduced. For the unavoidable emissions, the studio used high-quality, verified carbon offsets. Futurama: Bender's Big Score
also features an eco-friendly highlight: a cameo from former Vice President Al Gore, guest starring as himself.
The first feature-length Futurama
action epic, with three more adventures expected through 2009, finds the Futurama
crew fighting to save Earth in an epic battle against nudist alien Internet scammers. It's nearly Christmas 3007 when evil naked aliens launch a cyber-attack on the Planet Express and make a shocking discovery: the secret of time travel, mysteriously tattooed on Fry's buttocks. Using their devious nudist software to control Bender, the aliens send him through history where he has run-ins with the likes of Al Gore, Coolio (Daredevil, Batman & Robin
) and Sarah Silverman (The Sarah Silverman Program, School For Scoundrels

is back! In this all-new, feature-length epic, evil nudist aliens send Bender on a rampage through time, forcing him - slightly against his will - to steal all of Earth's priceless historic treasures. Will the heroic Planet Express crew save the planet? Will Leela find true love? Will the ancient and terrible secret of Fry's buttocks be exposed? All will be revealed in Futurama: Bender's Big Score
