We all know the story. An earnest teen, who just wants a new truck to take out his girl, his dad to stand up to his boss, and to rock out at a show, gets caught up in his wacky scientist friend’s scheme to steal some plutonium so he can time travel. Things go awry when said teen (Marty) gets sent back in time instead and lands in all sorts of hot water. His mom has a crush on him, he has to train his dad to stand up for himself, and the town bully (boss in the future) is on his case. He also accidentally almost erases himself from existence. With the help of the “Doc” from the past, Marty must right the wrongs and get Back to the Future! But what happens when you put the most famous writer of all time’s stamp on it?

A delightful mix of ’80s fun and loquacious language. Check out more on William Shakespeare’s Get Thee Back to the Future! by Ian Doescher here below.

Rock and Roll Titan and Pioneer Chuck Berry Has Died

Chuck Berry

Chuck Berry, the unfounded absolute legend and major crafter of much of the archetypical sounds and styles of the genesis of rock and roll, was found dead today in St. Charles, MO. He was 90.

Without question, the superlatives that have been foisted upon Berry ever since he exploded onto the scene in the early 1950s have never been placed incorrectly. It’s a simple equation: Without Chuck Berry, there wouldn’t be rock and roll, period. He made a blueprint (born from his love of players like T-Bone Walker and the like who came before him) that plays out like a true blue American songbook of the rock and roll idiom. Those songs are as well known as any other in any genre in any sound any human being has ever made, and the influence has stretched long and wide, influencing a chain link of titans of the rock genre who followed, like John Lennon, Keith Richards, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, the list goes on and on endlessly.

Nike Releases Teaser Video For Self-Lacing Sneakers Inspired By ‘Back To The Future’

Back to the Future II Nike MAG

Back in 2011 Nike produced 1,500 limited edition replicas of the Nike MAG, the self-lacing sneakers Marty McFly wore in Back to the Future II. And while they were an awesome replica, they didn’t actually self-lace and it was impossible for most people without plenty of extra cash lying around to get their hands on a pair.

A few days after that announcement, shoe engineer Tinker Hatfield—creator of the Pump sneakers and designer of the MAG replicas—said they were still working on the self-lacing technology and would have it ready by 2015, the year they travel to in Back to the Future II. 2015 has come and gone with no self-lacing sneakers, but hope is not lost. Nike has released a teaser video for self-lacing sneakers called HyperAdapt 1.0, and you can check it out below.

DeLorean: ‘Back To The Future’ Car Back In Production Over 30 Years Later

DeLorean

It’s been over 30 years since the last new DeLorean was built. Now it looks like the car that was made famous by the Back to the Future movies is heading back into production soon.

The company went bankrupt due to a combination of lack of demand and owner John DeLorean being arrested for conspiring to smuggle millions of dollars worth of cocaine (a charge he was later acquitted of) into the United States. Businessman Stephen Wynne eventually purchased the company and moved it to Humble, Texas in 1987, where they’ve been restoring the cars for those who already own them or refurbishing them for sale to those who want to purchase one. Now it appears the laws that were preventing them from manufacturing brand new DeLoreans are being changed.

Honest Trailer Back To The Future

When Tuesday came and went without a new Honest Trailer from Screen Junkies, I didn’t think too much of it. Now it all makes sense. Back in 1989, Back to the Future Part II sent Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) to the future… October 21, 2015 to be precise. By the time you read this article, that date, the actual date will be the past. 26 years after hoverboards, flying Deloreans, and Grays Sports Almanac became parts of the lexicon of American cinema, we finally get the Back to the Future trilogy Honest Trailer!

‘Back To The Future’: Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd Return As Marty & Doc On Jimmy Kimmel

Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd as Marty McFly and Doc Brown on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Recently we saw an animated short that showed us what it might have looked like had Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled to the real 2015 in the sequel to Back to the Future instead of the much different 2015 that was presented in the movie. The video was more of a depressing reminder of the times we live in than anything.

Now we have an even better version of this scenario. In a very special appearance for Back to the Future Day yesterday, both Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd returned as Marty and Doc for a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live! (with an added bonus cameo by a certain audition judge). And once again, the “future” wasn’t quite what they were expecting.

Click on over to the other side to watch the video, along with the interview portion with Michael J. Fox.
