The first trailer for the film has been released, introducing viewers to Fry and Bender’s “single-minded mission for the sweet elixir of life: beer.”

The filmmakers have given themselves a Q rating (for “questionable”), as “audiences will no doubt question the creators’ motives, self-respect, and sanity.” What may first surprise viewers is that “Fan-O-Rama” is a live-action affair, with practical effects and prosthetic costumes that bring to mind a “Mario” or “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie from the early ’90s.
