Is This A Real Working ‘Back To The Future’ Hoverboard? (Video)

HUVr Tech Hoverboard

We’ve seen glimpses of the possibility of a real working hoverboard, the floating skateboard made famous in Back to the Future II, in the past, but nothing that someone could actually get on and ride.

Yesterday a video was uploaded by a company called HUVr, which claims to show the first real-deal working hoverboard ever created. It begins with Back to the Future star Christopher Lloyd showing up in a DeLorean (as he tends to do) and handing off the high-tech board to skateboarding legend Tony Hawk before Hawk and other celebrities talk about being the first to experience something no one thought they’d ever get to experience.

At first glance and without any other knowledge the video might just blow your mind. But there’s more going on here than first meets the eye. Click on over to the other side to see the video.

Christopher Lloyd Arrives At CES In DeLorean

As part of the celebration of the 120th anniversary of Gibson guitars, actor Christopher Lloyd showed up in character as Doc Brown from the classic Back to the Future franchise, and even better, he arrived in time traveling vehicle, the DeLorean.

You can see a video of his arrival below.

Netflix To Update Klingon, Vulcan Subtitles In ‘Star Trek III: The Search For Spock’

Star Trek III: The Search For Spock

Netflix is preparing to remove Star Trek III: The Search For Spock from its extensive movie database because they reportedly feel that the version they currently have does not have authentic enough subtitles for the Vulcan and Klingon dialogue.

And I’ll be honest with you, even though I own this movie on DVD and Blu-ray (and VHS), I totally panicked when I read this news and immediately went into my Netflix Instant Queue where, of course, Star Trek III: The Search For Spock perpetually sits at the #2 slot (behind Star Trek III: The Wrath Of Khan) and watched the movie. The version currently streaming on Netflix that I watched had no subtitle translations for the Klingon and Vulcan dialogue, of which there is plenty, so unless you’ve seen this 1984 movie a million times like me, then you might find it hard to follow.

Piranha 3DD

So what’s the big difference between the new red band trailer for Dimension Films’ summer splatter spectacle sequel Piranha 3DD and the tamer theatrical trailer that was released almost a month ago? In the words of Chris Griffin, “BOOBIES!”

You can watch the red band trailer here below.

In addition to the bounty of bouncing boobage on display here we have David Hasselhoff in a cheeky cameo, Ving Rhames getting all Planet Terror-ed up, Gary Busey getting gnawed up by piranha guppies, and the lovely Danielle Panabaker doing a Shivers/Slither bathtub homage. The Feast team of director John Gulager and screenwriters Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton (with additional assistance from producer Joel Soisson) are on hand to orchestrate another glorious ballet of carnage and chesticles.

Piranha 3DD

The 3D horror remake sequel Piranha 3DD was originally supposed to open last November before it was pulled from Dimension Films’ release schedule and given an unspecified 2012 premiere date, but that didn’t stop the studio from releasing a new trailer today.

You can watch it here below.

Alexandre Aja, the director of the 2010 hit Piranha 3D, has turned over his directorial duties to John Gulager this time around.

Piranha 3DD

At the Spike TV 2011 Scream Awards, Piranha 3D won the award for Most Memorable Mutilation for the scene where the girl gets scalped alive by a motorboat.

To accept the award was none other than Scalped Alive By Motorboat Girl herself, a massive digitally projected talking head which arose from the pool of water on stage, who, while honored and excited to accept the award, went on to introduce the world premiere of the teaser trailer for Piranha 3D.

Watch the teaser trailer here below.

Christopher Lloyd Returns As Doc Brown For Argentinian Electronics Store Commercial

BAADASSSSS!   |

Christopher Lloyd has decided to reprise his greatest role as an actor in one of the most unusual of all venues. Reverend Jim from Taxi? No. Judge Doom from Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Try again. That exposition-spouting weirdo from Piranha 3D? Three strikes and YER OUT!!!!

No, Lloyd has returned to his role as Dr. Emmett “Doc” Brown from the immortal Back to the Future trilogy, but this time he won’t be joined on his adventure by Michael J. Fox. He’s not even doing this for a movie. Lloyd is playing the good yet kooky scientist and inventor of the flux capacitor (which makes time travel possible, naturally) in a new commercial for Garbarino’s, an electronics store chain in Argentina. You can watch the full commercial here below.

Go See Christopher Lloyd On The Big Screen In ‘Insight’
space

InSight

I don’t know about you, but if I see the name Christopher Lloyd on a movie, I’m watching it.

This weekend, Lloyd’s new film InSight will be released in limited theaters, and also stars Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints), Adam Baldwin (Firefly), Natalie Zea (Justified), Thomas Ian Nicholas (American Pie), and Veronica Cartwright.

You can check out the trailer here below for the film, directed by Richard Gabai, but I’ll be honest — the trailer doesn’t do the movie justice. Matter of fact, it plays like a Funny or Die parody of a psychological paranormal thriller. So, maybe skip the trailer and just go by who’s actually in the movie.

Oh, and the story, story is important too: an ER nurse (Zea) gets zapped while trying to revive a dying woman who’s been stabbed. She then immediately gets the woman’s memories; of course, everyone thinks she’s nuts now and she’s basically going nuts because she’s got this other chick’s memories taking over her brain. So, understandably, she sets out to solve the crime on her own and then luckily the detective on the case (Flanery) teams up with her. Lots of crazy shit happens and there’s stuff about life to be learned too, and apparently, about the dangers of defibrillators.

DVD Review: Piranha

PIRANHA
DVD/Blu-ray/3D
DIRECTED BY: Alexandre Aja
WRITTEN BY: Pete Goldfinger, Josh Stolberg
STARRING: Steve R. McQueen, Elisabeth Shue, Jessica Szohr, Jerry O’Connell, Adam Scott, Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames, Paul Scheer, Richard Dreyfuss
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment
RELEASE DATE: January 11, 2011

Back in 1975, Steven Spielberg’s Jaws struck pure fear into the souls of moviegoers, creating a phobia of the ocean in many people who saw it. Obviously over the years we’ve learned through countless nature docs and Shark Week binges that sharks — dangerous as they might be — aren’t quite the man-eating monsters we all thought they were. Even so, the recipe behind Jaws is pretty failproof, and it makes sense for filmmakers to use the same basic foundation for other films.

Enter Piranha, a remake of the 1978 movie of the same name that uses just this very same formula. During Spring Break in the town of Lake Victoria, Arizona, an earthquake opens a giant crack in the bed of the lake, creating entrance to a whole new section that had been locked away for millions of years. Even worse, a breed of prehistoric piranhas have thrived in this underwater tomb all along, and when the earthquake gives them access to the surface once again, they come out in droves seeking blood.
