When Nike’s new Air Mags with working power laces are finally available, there is little doubt they’re going to cost a small fortune. But if you’ve always wanted Marty’s futuristic Nikes from Back to the Future II, and don’t mind never being able to wear them, Hot Toys’ new BTTF II Marty is a cheaper way to go.
According to Hollywood, time machines can come in any shape and size. And for the latest episode of Super-Fan Builds, two of the most unusual time machines—the iconic DeLorean from Back to the Future and the hot tub from Hot Tub Time Machine—were merged to create an even better way to relax and let the hours fly by.
If you’re in Los Angeles and looking for something to do this weekend, I suggest heading down to the Petersen Automotive Museum. They’ve got a free screening of the documentary Outatime. If you haven’t heard of it, that’s the documentary about the DeLorean time machine from the Back to the Future trilogy.
In my head, we screwed it all up. Our reality is an alternate timeline because our hoverboards don’t actually hover. There are people out there living in the real timeline where Back to the Future-style hoverboards actually do exist and do hover and are probably made in a factory that pumps ‘em out like in this…
The last remaining Back to the Future ride in the world is closing this spring. Back to the Future: The Ride will be no more.
Ever since Back to the Future II, people have wanted shoes with power laces. Well, it’s happened. Nike has finally put power lacing in real shoes. In real life. As in, you’ll actually be able to buy them. And you’ll never have to tie a shoelace again. The Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 will be the first real Nike shoe to…
For years, fans have speculated and asked the filmmakers behind Back to the Future if they’d ever do a follow-up. Thankfully, they’ve almost always said “No.” But one fan has another idea. A prequel. And he’s already cut the trailer for it.
A great love story can totally grab your heartstrings. But you know what is guaranteed to make you start sobbing like a drunken longshoreman? Friendship. Science fiction and fantasy are full of platonic relationships that punch you in the gut. So in no particular order, here are the 17 friendships most guaranteed to…
When it comes to pop culture art, there’s a fine line between cute and annoying. Lots of artists turn characters or actors into non-threatening, sweet version of themselves but you can go too far. Jeff Victor doesn’t. And he tows that line by blending in a heft dose of nostalgia.
All of our favorite characters are orphans. Or else, they had horrendously abusive childhoods. Basically, giving characters childhood trauma is an all-purpose motivation—why else would someone be a vigilante/wizard/etc. unless something had gone wrong in their lives? But here are 10 people who had normal families that…
It’s almost impossible to think of Back to the Future and not instantly conjure thoughts of Drew Struzan’s iconic poster of Marty McFly stepping out of the Delorean. But we almost had a poster where the amazing time-traveling car wasn’t the star. Hell, it was barely even on the poster.
Now that Marty McFly’s arrived from 1985, it’s time to give Marty a proper greeting: with a porn spoof! After all, porn spoofs are the most important cultural artifacts of our futuristic era. Here’s the first trailer, exclusively at io9! It’s work-safe, apart from some sex toys.
We don’t know if Doc Brown worked on this F/A-18C Hornet, seen here taking off. We don’t know if it had a Flux capacitor on board. We also don’t know if it was only traveling at 88 mph when this photo was taken, although it seems unlikely. However, we do know it looks like it’s leaving burning tire tracks in its wake,…
It’s almost second nature for sci-fi to be self-referential—not just to itself, but to the wider pantheon of shows and movies. Doctor Who is no stranger to these references, but last week’s episode, “Face the Raven,” had one that was typically Doctor Who: An Easter Egg, hidden inside another Easter Egg!
We all know this by now: the 2015 in Back to the Future II didn’t happen in real life. We failed. But! We can totally make things right by changing the past, as in re-editing Back to the Future II to include things that actually happened in the year 2015. It actually works out quite well, as PistolShrimps shows,…
You probably woke up this morning never wanting to hear about Back to the Future II ever again. That’s totally understandable, but that also puts you at risk of missing out on this life-size BTTF II time machine replica that’s actually a gigantic amazing cake.
