On the eve of San Diego Comic-Con, it seems like an appropriate time to present this fan-made live-action Futurama trailer. The filmmakers have indicated that a longer short will be released soon.

Directed by Dan Lanigan, the trailer shows an impressive attention to detail. Notably, the film uses a lot of practical effects, including animatronics, make-up, and model miniatures. Whether a live-action Futurama is necessary is a question best left to others; as a calling card to get more work in the film industry, it does its job.
