BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Bad news Back To The Future fans, co-writer Bob Gale has confirmed that there won’t ever be a fourth instalment to the franchise. But he has a very good reason for not adding to Marty and Doc’s adventures, and it’s one that every other franchise should probably adhere to.
It's a fact that we're uncomfortable admitting, but next summer will mark the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future. (Oh how time flies!) As beloved and iconic as this '80s classic is, you can bet that its makers have an eye out for ways to toast the film's long-running popularity. And screenwriter Bob Gale is dropping some details.
The opening shot of Back To The Future really tells you absolutely everything you need to know about Doc Brown. The incredible number of clocks reflect both his kookiness and fascination with time; his automatic dog food opener shows us both the love for his dog, Einstein, and his love for inventing; and both the malfunctioning toaster and missing coffee pot immediately tell us that he's kind of a disorganized dude.
Fire up the DeLorean, because we’re about to go back in time with Secret Cinema’s just announced LA screening of Back to the Future! The company has revealed plans to bring the popular event to Los Angeles just in time for the film’s 30th anniversary next year.
Seth MacFarlane loves his references. You could spend days if not months watching all of his television series and Ted counting the number of references he makes to other movies and shows. We expect that the tally will grow even bigger with the upcoming release of A Million Ways To Die In The West.
With 2015--the setting of McFly's Part II adventure--right around the corner, Nike is promising to up their game with MAGs that actually have power-lacing!
Looking to skip the lines at the movie theater and celebrate Valentine's Day with a good movie at home instead? No one says you have to watch some tired romcom or a dramatic Nicholas Sparks movie just to stay on theme. Over the years, cinema has given us some truly wonderful love stories, packaged in great movies that might not traditionally be billed as a romances.
For those of you who have always dreamed of visiting a prestigious theater in London and listening to a song about flux capacitors, I have the most amazing news. Bob Gale, the screenwriter behind the Back To The Future trilogy, has announced that starting in 2015 there will be a musical based on the beloved 1985 time travel comedy in housed in London's West End
"I challenge the geek community, the web community, the YouTube community, the film community, the time travel community, the hypothetical Jaws community, and the local community college to answer my call and create 15 new JAWS feature-length movies before October 21st, 2015."
November 5th is an important date for those that celebrate Guy Fawkes Day, but it's also a significant one for Back To The Future fans. It was on this day in 1955 that Marty McFly, with the assistance of Doc Brown and his amazingly modified DeLorean, landed back in time and began an adventure that had him meeting younger versions of his parents and accidentally threatening his own existence.
I like to imagine that if Back to the Future became a Broadway musical, Huey Lewis, The News (if available) and composer Alan Silvestri would collaborate on the music and lyrics, kind of like how Elton John and Tim Rice teamed up for the stage production of The Lion King. Alas, we can probably add Back to the Future to the list of 80s movies unlikely to ever reach the stage in musical form, along with The Terminator and Fatal Attraction.
It's weird to have grown up obsessing over Back to the Future and having to share my fascination with friends who couldn't have cared less about it-- I remember sending a postcard to my friend Andrea from Universal Studios' Back to the Future ride and thinking it was the greatest thing ever, while she never mentioned it. But today, thanks to the Internet and a generation of kids like me raised on VHS tapes, my Back to the Future obsession is reflected back at me everywhere I look
When Back to the Future returned to theaters in October 24, ahead of the trilogy's release on Blu-ray, I gathered up as many of my friends as possible and giddily headed to the theater, seeing my favorite movie of all time for the first time on the big screen. The crowd cheered when composer Alan Silvestri's name came up in the credits! The shouted "Nobody calls me chicken!" right alongside Marty!
The car will be part of a display that is featured at the NBC Universal Experience at Universal Studios Hollywood in Southern California. It’s a great opportunity to interact with a piece of movie-making history. Can you see yourself planning a vacation around a visit to a Delorean? Bring a Sports Almanac with you, just in case the car works.
Slowly but surely, the “future” of Robert Zemeckis’ Back to the Future trilogy is becoming the present – which just makes me feel old. For example, we once dreamed of a day when lazy pop-culture aficionados would be able to cruise along on the floating hoverboards Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) used to escape future Griff and his thuggish crew in Back to the Future II. Now we can own them.
