Do These Powerlaces Match My Hoverboard?

Hadley Freeman over at The Guardian has declared that Back to the Future is this season's big fashion trend. Which makes complete sense, right? It's almost the year 2015—the very year that Marty visits in the BTTF sequel—so bring on those Nike powerlaces and hoverboard-friendly sneakers! Or not. » 3/13/14 5:02pm 3/13/14 5:02pm

Nike Designer Says Marty McFly's Power Laces Are Coming Next Year

If there was one disappointment about Nike's awesome Back to the Future II Air Mag, it's that the shoes didn't have Marty's power laces (and that they only made 1,500 and neither you nor I own a pair). But Nike designer Tinker Hatfield says that's about to change—power laces are coming in 2015. The future is here! » 2/15/14 2:00pm 2/15/14 2:00pm

Fast Food Restaurants Were Supposed To Be Completely Automated by Now

In the 1989 movie Back to the Future Part II, the food of 2015 looks incredibly familiar — it's just prepared a bit differently. Toss a miniature Pizza Hut pizza onto a pan, stick it into your Black & Decker Hydrator, tell the machine how you want it cooked, and three seconds later your pizza is ready. The appliance… » 1/14/14 3:42pm 1/14/14 3:42pm

Everything you didn't notice about Back to the Future

Usually, CinemaSins makes a hilarious video pointing out all the goofy errors and everything wrong with a popular movie and we all get a good laugh out of it. But when it comes to a classic like Back to the Future, well, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that masterpiece of cinema! Not Doc Brown's science, not the … » 11/14/13 10:20pm 11/14/13 10:20pm

Brilliant Wackos Are Acting Out "Back To The Future" On Twitter

Look, Marty McFly isn't coming back until 2015. But that doesn't mean we can't have some BTTF fun right now! The movie started out on October 25th, 1985, and last night, some brilliant wackos marked the anniversary by kicking off a real-time reenactment — on Twitter. » 10/26/13 7:00pm 10/26/13 7:00pm

Meet the Suburban Dad Who Built His Own DeLorean Time Machine

Some people are movie fans. Others are fanatics. And then there's Lenny Hochteil, the man who built a DeLorean time machine just like the one in Back to the Future. It's got a flux capacitor, gullwing doors and ground effects. And yes he does dress up like Doc Brown when he drives it. » 10/09/13 1:40pm 10/09/13 1:40pm

Here's the New Lego Back to the Future Set

This is the back of the box of the Lego Back to the Future set, which I got last week. While I'm still disappointed with how they made the hood, it's still a nice set. That car's front is easily fixable if you get some extra pieces—and the third movie's car actually looks nice. » 7/18/13 1:35pm 7/18/13 1:35pm

Behold the First Images of the Official Lego Back to the Future Set!

Brick News has obtained photos of the official Lego Back to the Future set, including the minifigs for Marty McFly and Doc Brown. As you can see, it's more elaborated than the version approved by Lego Cuusoo but not as pretty. Not even close. You'll be able to create all the three versions of the car using the pieces… » 6/25/13 6:31pm 6/25/13 6:31pm

BTTF's Grays Sports Almanac iPad Case Only Makes You Rich in Spirit

Trumped only by the time-traveling Delorean itself as the greatest movie plot device of all time, the copy of Grays Sport Almanac that put the events of Back to the Future II into motion can now be yours—as an iPad case. Gone are the pages and pages of sports scores and statistics, not that they'd be any good to you… » 6/24/13 10:47am 6/24/13 10:47am

Stunning Behind-the-Scenes Photos Show Iconic Movies in a New Light


We love the magic of the movies, that trickery that lets us believe in beautiful robots, time-traveling scientists, wolf men, and flying superheroes. But sometimes it's fun to peek behind the curtain, and see the secrets and candid faces behind our favorite films. » 6/09/13 5:01pm 6/09/13 5:01pm

These Armored Nike Air Mags Were Made for Iron Man

Though the Nike MAGs are already nostalgically beautiful in their own Back to the Future style, this custom Iron Man version of the Nike MAGs transforms the boot into something even more futuristic. Something that Tony Stark would invent. Something that you could imagine as part of Iron Man's armor. Something that I so … » 6/06/13 9:00pm 6/06/13 9:00pm

Is This the Closest We'll Ever Get To Seeing a Back to the Future

Everyone wants a hoverboard. Everyone. Don't even try to disagree. But while you can buy a lame-o, non-working Back to the Future-style 'board, it's just not the real thing. Crazy optimists can hold out hope for 2015, but in the meantime, this clever little picture by François Dourlen is probably the best we can do. » 4/27/13 1:30pm 4/27/13 1:30pm

Oh Yes, An Iranian Scientist Has Invented a Time Machine (So He Says)

Ali Razeghi, an Iranian scientist who is the managing director of Iran's Centre for Strategic Inventions, has done something only the great Doc Brown has done: he's created a time machine. But unlike Doc's DeLorean, Razeghi's "The Aryayek Time Traveling Machine" can only take you to the future. What are we waiting for?… » 4/10/13 7:00pm 4/10/13 7:00pm

I Love This Little Girl Who Wants to Make a Hoverboard After Watching

This short film, "Hoverboard", is about a girl and her teddy bear trying to create a hoverboard after watching Back to the Future II. I can totally relate to her because I was trying to make my own hoverboard really hover just last month. You're an inspiration girl! » 4/05/13 11:00pm 4/05/13 11:00pm

The Lego Back to the Future Time Machine Train Is a Must Have

Our friend Masashi Togami, the founder of Team Back to the Future, has a new BTTF project on Lego Cuusoo: Doc Brown's Jules Verne Train. Like the soon-to-come-to-market Lego Back to the Future DeLorean, this model-created by Sakuretsu-is extremely well designed and fully functional. » 2/25/13 7:00pm 2/25/13 7:00pm

Watch Back To The Future Boiled Down to 60 Awesome Seconds of Animation

Back to the Future is a classic, a mastery of the zany-time-travel form, and we'd all like to watch it every day if we had the time, I'm sure. But we don't. Lucky for you, the guys at 1A4 Studio worked a little time-related magic of their own and boiled the whole 116 minute film down into a cool, 60 seconds of… » 2/07/13 4:20pm 2/07/13 4:20pm

If I Can't Have a DeLorean Time Machine, I'd Totally Take This DeLorean…

I've grown up. I've faced reality. I now know that getting a DeLorean time machine like in Back to the Future isn't going to happen any time soon. I think I'm okay with it. I'd definitely be okay with it if I could replace the DeLorean-sized hole in my heart with this awesome DeLorean Hovercraft. It was spotted… » 1/16/13 8:20pm 1/16/13 8:20pm
