Back to the Future: The Game
The 30th Anniversary Edition
Publisher: Telltale Games
Starring
Christopher Lloyd, Tom Wilson, Claudia Wells, A.J. LoCasio
Platform: Playstation 4 | Xbox One
Release date: October 13, 2015

In honor of October 21, 2015, aka “Back to the Future Day,” I decided to check out Back to the Future: The Game, the 30th Anniversary Edition, from Telltale Games. If you haven’t gotten to play this edition yet, then you are in for a treat.

Back to the Future: The Game takes place six months after the events of Back to the Future Part III, where the year is 1986. The Bank in Hill Valley is holding an estate sale for the late Doctor Emmett Brown (voiced by the always talented Christopher Lloyd, reprising his franchise role). Marty McFly (voiced by A.J. LoCasio) shows up and finds out his father George is running the sale. The Delorean shows up without Doc, but with Einstein and a tape recorder. Marty finds out that the Doc (going under the name of Carl Sagan) is accused of arson of a speakeasy in 1931. From there the adventure is delivered in classic Back to the Future fashion.

Book Review: Back To The Future: The Ultimate Visual History

Back to the Future: The Ultimate Visual History title

Back to the Future: The Ultimate Visual History
Hardcover | Kindle
Written by Michael Klastorin with Randal Atamaniuk
Foreword by Michael J. Fox
Preface by Christopher Lloyd
Introduction by Bob Gale
Afterword by Robert Zemeckis
Harper Design | HarperCollins Publishers
Release date: October 20, 2015

This month marks the 30th anniversary of Back To The Future, the Robert Zemeckis-directed Steven Spielberg-produced film that went on to become one of the greatest and most beloved movies of our time, spawning two sequels that were equally enjoyed. In conjunction with this milestone, Insight Editions has released Back to the Future: The Ultimate Visual History, a coffee table-sized full-cover hardcover packed with details about the film trilogy, highlighted with behind-the-scenes photos, concept art, storyboards, and a host of removable collectible-type items.

Though Back to the Future was an instant hit when Universal Pictures released it back in 1985, it was a long road from concept to screen for director/screenwriter Robert Zemeckis and screenwriter Bob Gale. Though the filmmakers had a great idea for a film about a time-travel, their initial draft of the script was rejected by over 40 movie studios. A tidbit like that is hard to believe today when we see how deeply rooted the film is in today’s pop culture, but The Ultimate Visual History reveals their lengthy struggle, which also included their multiple attempts to get Michael J. Fox, who was locked in at the time to his schedule on the popular TV sitcom Family Ties, as the lead.

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.
