Back to the Future II

We’ve entered into the final days of the year 2015 which, as you’re probably aware, is the crazy future year that Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) travel to in the delicious creamy center of the Back to the Future trilogy.

Back in August CineFix shared nine fun facts about the beloved movie franchise for their “Things You (Probably) Didn’t Know” YouTube series as part of the 365-day celebration of our reaching the year in real life. Now with 2016 fast approaching, they’ve decided to dedicate their final installment of the series this year to seven new things about the movies that you might not have known about.

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.

Back to the Future: The Game 30th Anniversary Edition banner

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.

LEGO Dimensions Back to the Future

The impressive voice cast has been announced for the upcoming video game LEGO Dimensions in the form of a new preview video.

While the cast is huge, it’s a specific part of the cast that’s particularly exciting. Among all the names, none other than Michael J. Fox is in the game, reprising his role as Marty McFly from Back to the Future. He’s also joined by co-star Christopher Lloyd, who of course voices Emmett “Doc” Brown. If you recall a handful of years ago, Telltale made their own episodic Back to the Future game, but Fox was unable to record for the game at the time, leading to them bringing in a surprisingly accurate impressionist for the job.

You can read a rundown of who joins Fox and Lloyd on the cast, including stars of The LEGO Movie, Doctor Who, Portal, and more, and also watch the voice cast announcement video below.

Tony Hawk Funny or Die Hoverboard Prank

By now you’ve likely heard of or seen the video that stormed the ‘net recently claiming to show a real working Back to the Future II hoverboard. Everyone wanted to believe it was a real thing, but the general consensus was that the video was almost certainly fake. Not long after, it was discovered that Funny or Die was apparently behind it all.

Now Funny or Die has admitted to the prank, and is apologizing for such a cruel, cruel hoax. They’ve released a new video with BTTF star Christopher Lloyd, who appeared in the prank video and even got a little emotional toward the end to help try to sell it, talking about the deception. He also reveals a way that one person will be able to win a replica hoverboard that was signed by the celebrities who took part in the prank.

You can check out the video below.
