Last year, right in the heart of summer, we featured a trailer for an ambitious project that was taking the animated world of Futurama and turning it into a live-action short film, complete with make-up and effects that could fuel your nightmares. The project wasn’t yet done, and there was no indication as to when it would be done. But the time has come.
Fan-O-Rama: A Futurama Fan Film is exactly what the title says it is, but they’ve used real actors in place of animated illustrations, complete with some photorealistic visual effects, and some rather unsettling make-up and prosthetics. Clocking in at 18-minutes, this is quite the ambitious piece of work.

It may not be as long-lived as The Simpsons or South Park or Family Guy, but Futurama will forever and always have a special place in our hearts. Matt Groening‘s animated sci-fi sitcom was as lovably oddball as its characters — the kind of show that can laugh at the end of the universe, wring heartfelt romance out of a Magic School Bus-esque adventure, and rib Star Trek and its fans with the affection of a fellow fan.
Now, in honor of this weird and wonderful series, artist Dan Mumford has unveiled a new Futurama piece titled “You Guys Realize You Live in a Sewer, Right?” Check it out, and get all the details on how you can grab one, below.

Fans of Futurama were given a glorious gift when the canceled animated comedy returned for all new episodes for a short period of time. That’s about all fans of a canceled television show can hope for outside of seeing it revived as a feature film. However, now they can have both wishes fulfilled thanks to a simultaneously impressive and fairly creepy project from the folks at Cinema Relics.
Fan-O-Rama is a live-action fan film adaptation of Matt Groening‘s animated series Futurama. Fans of the show know that there’s a lot of elements from the show that would surely look strange when brought into the real world, and the Fan-O-Rama trailer that’s just debuted online is evidence of that for sure, especially when you get a look at Leela, Zoidberg and Professor Farnsworth.

The field of voice acting is a wholly unique one. In some ways, voice acting can be more difficult than acting on-camera, mostly because so much emotion has to come purely from the voice, without the assistance of facial expressions or body language. Many times it’s the voice that informs how a character is depicted, and that’s why it’s so surprising to learn that the same actors are behind the voices of many different cartoon and video game characters we know and love.
A new infographic lays out just some of the voice actors who are responsible for bringing various characters to life in video games like Uncharted and The Last of Us as well as animated series like The Simpsons, Futurama and Scooby-Doo.

The Planet Express crew is making a special delivery to your TV this weekend. No, Futurama hasn’t been revived again — Bender, Fry, and the gang are setting a course for Springfield in the next episode of The Simpsons, in hopes of preventing a disastrous future event.
But before it gets to that, though, the Simpsons episode will begin as all Simpsons episodes must — with a couch gag. And in keeping with the Simpsons / Futurama crossover theme, it brings back a minor but much-loved character into the Simpsons family living room. Watch the Simpsons Futurama couch gag after the jump.

Bad news, everyone: Comedy Central has declined to renew Futurama, making the current seventh season its last. It’s a disappointment fans should be familiar with. Futurama ended its originally run on Fox in 2004, but was brought back to life by Comedy Central in 2008. Its makers don’t sound so shocked either. “I can’t say I was devastated by the news,” executive producer David X. Cohen said. Hit the jump to keep reading.

Location is essential to the medium of television. Unlike movies, which can use a location and move along, TV recycles the same places over and over to conserve time and money. The result is that places on television become characters themselves.
That was the idea behind Austin-based artist Tim Doyle‘s first solo art show, UnReal Estate, in early 2012. Now the sequel is upon us. UnReal Estate II opens Thursday February 7 at Spoke Art in San Francisco, CA. Just like last year, Doyle has immortalized some of your favorite locations from our favorite TV shows. A few examples include the ship Serenity from Firefly, the TARDIS in Doctor Who, the model home on Arrested Development, and Downton Abbey from, well, you know where.
Below we’ve got the entire show and will tell you how to see it in person as well as buy prints online. Read More »
