High schooler Marty McFly Michael J. Fox, during the height of his TV success) is catapulted back to the '50s where he sees his parents in their teens, and accidentally changes the history of how Mom and Dad met. Filled with the humorous ideology of the '50s, filtered through the knowledge of the '80s (actor Ronald Reagan is president, ha!), the film comes off as a Twilight Zone episode written by Preston Sturges. Filled with memorable effects and two wonderfully off-key, perfectly cast performances: Christopher Lloyd as the crazy scientist who builds the time machine (a DeLorean luxury car) and Crispin Glover as Marty's geeky dad.
October 21 is officially Back to The Future day, and with the first movie in the franchise about to celebrate it's 30th Anniversary, Universal Studios is pulling out all the stops. As any BTTF fan worth his salt knows, October 21, 2015 is the day that Marty and Doc go to in the future, as seen in Back to the Future Part II. And some of the artifacts from this fictional time period are becoming a reality. Earlier today, Pepsi announced that they are finally delivering their long-awaited Pepsi Perfect soda. And now, we have the official teaser trailer for Jaws 19.
We won't actually get to see Jaws 19. And after watching the teaser trailer, you'll probably agree that's for the best. The footage goes through the entire trilogy, offering the plots of Jaws 5 through Jaws 18, leading into this latest 'fictional' sequel. It sounds like Bruce the Shark and his brood have been through an awful lot, and it's good to see that Universal Pictures has a sense of humor about it's long dominant franchise.Read More

Great Scott, Doc Brown's back! A sneak peek from the new short coming exclusively to the Back to the Future 30th Anniversary Trilogy Blu-ray and DVD has arrived. While we'll never get to see a Back to The Future remake, reboot or sequel in director Robert Zemeckis' lifetime, no one associated with the popular movie series has ever frowned upon Christopher Lloyd resuming the role of Doc Brown for various projects, short films, theme part rides and even an animated Saturday morning cartoon show. He's back at it again, with Doc Brown appearing in a new teaser for the Back to the Future 30th Anniversary Trilogy Blu-ray set.
In 1989, Director Robert Zemeckis, Executive Producer Steven Spielberg and Producer/Screenwriter Bob Gale gave us a glimpse of the future in Back to the Future Part II as Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled to 2015...Or, if our calculations are correct, October 21, 2015, to be exact. Now, "The Future" has finally arrived. Universal Pictures Home Entertainment celebrates this once-in-a-lifetime date, as well as the 30th Anniversary of the groundbreaking first film, with three new releases debuting on October 20, 2015.Read More
Steven Spielberg's decision to bring DreamWorks to Universal is in no way a done deal, and it isn't clear if these reboots will only happen once a deal is struck. Steven Spielberg has always had his offices on the Universal Pictures lot, even while his DreamWorks company had distribution deals with Paramount and Disney.Steven Spielberg was a very "hands-on" executive producer on the studio's massive box office hit Jurassic World, and he is also a vital part of the studio's plans for the sequel, Jurassic World 2, and their future theme park plans for the franchise. Even without Steven Spielberg's DreamWorks at Universal, it sounds like he will still be a vital part of their reboot process.
Both Jaws and Back to The Future had heavy involvement from Steven Spielberg in all aspects of making them successful. His name on any potential remake or reboot would be vital to the success of both franchise carrying on into the future with new movies. But most are probably balking at the idea of a Jaws. But it's more likely to happen than another Back to The Future movie.Read More
