The alliteration of the letter "B" hits warp-speed with THE BEAST WITH A BILLION BACKS, the follow-up to BENDER'S BIG SCORE. This second of four feature-length adventures continues the legacy of FUTURAMA, the revived television series as beloved as it is animated. In this entry from creator Matt Groening (THE SIMPSONS), Fry, Leela, Bender, Professor Farnsworth, and the rest of the crew engage in a battle with a hideous, planet-sized monster until the whole ordeal manages to turn itself into a sizzling romance of epic proportions. Fans can count on Bender being a jerk, Fry being dim-witted, Leela having one eye and being sexy, Professor Farnsworth being hilariously old, and Hermes being a bespectacled Jamaican. Guest stars Brittany Murphy (SIN CITY), comedian David Cross (ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT, MR. SHOW), physicist extraordinaire Stephen Hawking, and the voice of Homer Simpson himself, Dan Castellaneta, are all along for this madcap ride of satire and buffoonery.
