In October 1984, when Back to the Future would’ve been in early-development stages, a producer gave a friendly suggestion to remedy one of the biggest flaws in the project. The script was “terrific”, everything was fine, but that title. Wouldn’t something along the lines of Space Man from Pluto have a smoother flow, make more sense to audiences, and convey what the movie’s actually about much more succinctly?
While the rest of the country was celebrating Back to the Future Day yesterday, Brian Kilmeade was just having a bad time.
The plan was simple: Dress up like Marty McFly, have Huey Lewis open up the door of the DeLorean, and get out of the DeLorean without hitting his head. Well, he accomplished the first one at least.
Today, October 21, 2015, is the so-called #FutureDay, the day in the future that Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled to in Back to the Future II. There’ll be a lot of celebrating and commemorating that day today (this year also is the 30th anniversary of the original Back to the Future opening in theaters), and here’s something pretty neat: Doc Brown’s original van is parked outside the real Twin Pines Mall for fans to visit and take pictures with.
It sure seems like this is going to be the year of Back to the Future 2 references.
We already started with the fact that Pepsi is bringing 'Pepsi Perfect' to the world, but now, Universal is jumping on the bandwagon of pure Back to the Future nostalgia.
The Back to the Future video game on NES is well known for its legendary awful game play and alienation of source material.
The Back to the Future movies trilogy is one of the most beloved film series of all time.
However, when it comes to its video games, these are sub-par games -- especially on the original Nintendo.
For years, the dream has been to either wield a lightsaber from Star Wars and/or jump on a Hoverboard from Back to the Future 2. It's amazing how much research has gone into these things, but it seems that a step towards the future has taken place when it comes to riding a Hoverboard.
It's almost surprising at this point that there has not been a 'Back to the Future' reboot or sequel. When you look back at the popular and successful properties of the 80s, there are few that haven't been modernized. Sony is practically falling all over themselves to get a new 'Ghostbusters' in theaters. This year alone saw new 'RoboCop,' 'Muppets,' 'Ninja Turtles,' 'Jump Street' and 'Transformers' movies. But, despite the frequency of these remakes, it doesn't look like you'll ever see a new 'Back to the Future' movie. And, that's a pretty great thing.
