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.
The past, present and future collided on October 21, 2015 when cast and filmmakers of the Academy Award-winning, blockbuster franchise Back to The Future reunited for a special one-night-only screening and Q&A with fans at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 in New York, NY. Talent in attendance included Michael J. Fox (Marty McFly), Lea Thompson (Lorraine Baines), Christopher Lloyd (Doc Brown), Huey Lewis, Donald Fullilove (Goldie Wilson), Claudia Wells (Jennifer Parker), Back to the Future co-creator and executive producer Bob Gale and composer Alan Silvestri. Universal Pictures Home Entertainment have provided us with videos and photos from last night's big event in New York City.
In 1989, Back to the Future Part II gave the world a glimpse of the future as Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled to 2015 . . . or, if our calculations are correct, October 21, 2015, to be exact. The cast reunited to celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime date, as well as to commemorate the original film's landmark 30th anniversary. Back to the Future 30th Anniversary Trilogy is now available on Blu-ray & DVD from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.Read More
While we've seen the actors come together to talk about the futuristic Mirai car that guzzles garbage, something even crazier happened late last night. Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd reprised their iconic characters from Back to The Future for a very special appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! It was a once in a lifetime event that brought the teenage rock star and his scientist companion to the real 2015, where things just have not turned out the way they imagined. Sure, Marty McFly's no longer an asshole. But there are no flying cars. No Hoverboards. And what happened to the Cubbies?
Jimmy Kimmel had to drop some heavy truths about 2015 on Marty McFly and Doc Brown. Neither of the pair had heard about the Internet. The talk show host was quick to correct any misconceptions about flying vehicles. But, as Jimmy Kimmel points out, we do have a lot to celebrate in this current 2015 timeline. Take the donut/croissant hybrid known as the cronut, for instance. There's also selfies. And you can watch TV on your phone while using the toilet! Isn't the future grand?Read More
We hope you're enjoying our Back to The Future Day coverage as the present meets up with the past, culminating in the day that holds all the answers to the space time continuum. To celebrate October 21, 2015, the same day that Doc Brown and Marty visit in Back to the Future Part II, we're catching up with one of the two men responsible for creating these timeless classics. Bob Gale co-wrote all three films alongside Robert Zemeckis, and served as a producer on the complete trilogy as well. Now, with all three Back to The Future films back on the big screen tonight, and a new 30th Anniversary Blu-ray box set in stores this week, we are celebrating with the true creator of the flux capacitor.
Few films have made an impact on popular culture like the Back to The Future trilogy. The adventures of Marty McFly and Doc Brown have became an international phenomenon. Bob Gale takes us back through the creation of this beloved time-traveling saga. He discusses some of the ins and outs of the filmmaking process, the challenges Robert Zemeckis faced, and what the future holds for the McFly family. Hint? Don't hold your breath waiting for a sequel or a reboot. But most of the characters are returning in a new comic book. And Doc is the star of his own 8 minute short film coming along with the Bu-ray box set.Read More
Today, as you probably know, is Back to The Future Day. You've more than likely heard a lot about the making of the movie over the course of the past few weeks. And you also probably know that Eric Stoltz was the original star of the sci-fi comedy classic, replaced midway through the shoot by Michael J. Fox. The new book Back to the Future: The Ultimate Visual History has a great account of what happened, and how the firing transpired. And it contains plenty of photos from the lost Eric Stoltz footage. But, aside from a few quick clips that have been released in the past, we haven't ever seen the bulk of this footage. Will we ever?
Yes, probably, is Bob Gale's answer. He believes that they will eventually release the footage on a future anniversary for the trilogy. But when that could be, he doesn't know. And he doesn't want to outright confirm that is happening, because Bob Gale and director Robert Zemeckis, who wrote the series together, could change their minds. But it sounds highly probable that fans will eventually get to see what might have been.Read More
