The newest installment in the “Futurama” franchise to get the big screen treatment.
Congers, NY (October 14, 2008) – Wizard World Texas is proud to host a screening of the latest DVD film in the dynamic “Futurama” dynasty on Saturday, November 8th with an encore presentation on Sunday, November 9th. This is a rare opportunity to see this epic on the big screen.
Park your hover-car and saddle up your unicorn for the most fantastical “Futurama” yet: “Futurama: Bender’s Game.” With fuel prices skyrocketing, the Planet Express crew sets off on a dangerous mission to infiltrate the world’s only dark-matter mine, source of all spaceship fuel. But deep beneath the surface, they discover a far stranger place…a medieval land of dragons and sorcery and intoxicated knights who look suspiciously like Bender.
Joining the cast are guest stars George Takei, the iconic Captain Sulu from the original “Star Trek” series, and comic impressionist Rich Little.
“Wizard World Texas is thrilled to be able to offer this rare opportunity to show ‘Futurama: Bender’s Game’ on the big screen,” said Wizard Entertainment Senior VP/Operations Joe Yanarella. “I’m sure the legions of ‘Futurama’ fans will love the experience.”
