Chuck Berry, the father of rock n’ roll, passed away Saturday at 90 years old. His music was sent to space for aliens to find, and for Back to the Future fans, he’s the guy on the phone who heard Marty McFly perform “Johnny B. Goode” and knew it would change the future. That’s right, Chuck Berry has transcended both…
When Nike released its self-lacing HyperAdapt 1.0 sneakers last year, people went crazy for them, even with their outrageous $720 price tag. But does anyone actually understand how they work?
If these were actual stamps, it might make a trip to the post office bearable.
Back to the Future II gave us an awesome glimpse of the future where sneakers automatically laced themselves. What the movie left out, however, was that those sneakers would cost you $720 a pair. Oof. But if you’ve got a bit of Lego lying around at home, you can give any shoe self-lacing powers on the cheap.
There are actually 5 different Hill Valleys in the Back to the Future series. 1985 gets two versions, the one where they start off and the alternate Biff-ruled version, there’s the throwback 1995 one, the awesomely futuristic 2015 version, and the old western 1885. Which one is your favorite? Trick question, it better…
We rarely think about the role food plays in our favorite TV shows or movies, but damned if it hasn’t been crucial. But what would Ghostbusters be without Twinkies? Twin Peaks without pie? Goonies without Baby Ruth? Pixar without Pizza Planet? One artist has decided to celebrate this crucial link in a very unique way.
It might be hyperbole to say the Back to the Future Flux Capacitor Wall Charger is the only wall charger you will ever need, but we should all have goals in life, and only charging my phone with something that looks like it was ripped out of the backseat of a sweet old DeLorean seems like a really good aspiration to…
A parody trailer has taken Doc and Marty out of the “wild west” of barn dances and manure fights into the sex-fueled Pleasure Dome that is Westworld. However, “Back to the Westworld” does more than just promise Marty the company of gold-coated sexbots: It totally makes Buford “Mad Dog” Tannen a host.
So you might possibly have heard that earlier this week the Chicago Cubs broke a 108-year record to win the World Series against the Cleveland Indians—a victory kiiiiind of predicted by Back to the Future II’s alternate 2015. THR caught up with screenwriter Bob Gale to discuss the gag’s sudden relevance again.
If you’re still heartbroken about not winning a pair of the Nike Mag self-lacing sneakers, you might want to skip this video. Super Deluxe hunted down “Chris,” who was lucky enough to snag one of the only 89 pairs, and now treats the sneakers with more care than he would a newborn baby—and with good reason.
We all know the flux capacitor is the key to time travel, but have you ever actually looked into what it costs to keep a DeLorean running? It’s expensive, and clearly unnecessary to traveling through time now that ThinkGeek makes a version you can keep in your pocket with your keys.
People have been binging Luke Cage all weekend, except during those few hours when Netflix was down and we were all freaking out. Naturally, fans have been pointing out some of the show’s clever Easter eggs, and one of them is real heavy. Great Scott.
Back to the Future fans know that Tom Wilson is the white whale of the franchise. Wilson played Biff, in multiple versions over three movies, but prefers not to talk about it or participate in any Back to the Future events. Instead, he channels his experiences into other outlets, including a new, pretty surprising one.
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.
