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.

‘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.

‘Back To The Future II’s Chicago Cubs 2015 World Series Connection

Back to the Future Part II Grays Sports Almanac

“Wish I could go back to the beginning of the season… put some money on the Cubbies!”

This was the line that prompted Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) to buy Grays Sports Almanac in the future year 2015 at the beginning of Robert Zemeckis’ 1989 sequel Back to the Future Part II. Marty’s plan is to use the book to gamble on the winners, and never lose…. of course anyone who has seen BTTF2 knows old Biff Tannen (Thomas F. Wilson) steals the book and gives it to his high school aged self causing the timeline to skew and Biff to become a Trump-esque villain. All of this begins back with the above quote. The Chicago Cubs have been Major League Baseball’s loveable losers for over a century. Their last World Series win came in 1908… before World War I, while Roosevelt was President (Cough, Teddy), 5 years before the Income Tax, and twelve years before women had the vote!

All this swirls together magically this week, as if this week holds significance on a space-time continuum. Wednesday, October 21 is the date in BTTF2 when Marty goes to future 2015. In actual 2015, the date coincides with the Cubs playing Game 4 of the National League Championship Series against the New York Mets in Wrigley Field in Chi-Town. The funny thing is, screenwriter Bob Gale, a fan of the rival St. Louis Cardinals, picked the Cubs for the title victory in futuristic 2015, because what would shock Marty more than the impossible happening! For those using this as an omen of certain victory for the Cubs, BTTF2 said they’d beat Miami. In 1989, there was no baseball team in Florida. By 1993, there were two, with the Florida Marlins rechristening themselves the Miami Marlins in 2012.

What If ‘Back To The Future II’ Visited The Real 2015? (Video)

Back to the Future II Animated Short

In just five short days, the date will be October 21, 2015. That is, as many of you already know, the very same date that Doc Brown brings Marty McFly to in Back to the Future II. And if you’re familiar with the movie, you know that its vision of the year we currently exist in, while awesome, is nowhere near what the real 2015 looks like.

A new animated video short aims to show what it would actually look like if Doc and Marty visited the real 2015 in Back to the Future II. You can check it out below. Fair warning: there is a small NSFW warning in effect for some naughty cartoon language.

‘JAWS 19’ Trailer Released For ‘Back To The Future’ 30th Anniversary

JAWS 19 in Back to the Future Part II

There’s a scene in Back to the Future Part II most of you will recall in which Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) arrives in the year 2015 and is frightened by a promotion for JAWS 19. The time-traveling sequel was released in 1989, two years after the third sequel to Steven Spielberg’s original 1975 classic JAWS was released. Thankfully, as it turns out, Back to the Future Part II was not prophetic, and that fourth murderous shark movie was the last (so far anyway…we all dread the day the word “reboot” becomes latched onto the franchise, unlike the currently protected Back to the Future franchise).

While the movie isn’t happening anytime soon, Universal Pictures decided to have a little fun in celebration of the release of the Back to the Future 30th Anniversary Trilogy later this month by making a special trailer for JAWS 19. You can check out what a promotion for the movie might look like below.
