Futurama Game

While word of yet another free-to-play game for mobile devices may elicit groans from some, when said game is based on a beloved TV show and manages to round up its creators (and an impressive list of stars!), it’s hard for fans not to take notice.

Such is the case with Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow, which is available on the App Store and Google Play today. It was crafted by Jam City’s game studio TinyCo, the folks behind the surprisingly great Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff and Marvel Avengers Academy, and they’re bringing us what’s as close to a new Futurama episode as we’re likely to get.

Live-Action Futurama Fan Film

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.

Futurama Dan Mumford print

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.

Futurama Live-Action Fan Film Trailer

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.
