Back to the Future Part II

  1. Back to the Future II Concept Art Reveals More 2015 Gadgets We Still Don’t Have

    And we thought hoverboard envy was bad.

    Once upon a time, Back to the Future writer/director Robert Zemeckis decided that hoverboard lust was enough of a burden to place on the audience of Part II, so he cut a bunch of amazing future tech from the movie. Well it's 2015, and Marty McFly's future is finally here! ...In pictures, anyway. The movie's "future consultant" has revealed some concept art of other gadgets we would've been salivating over since the late 80s if they'd made it to the screen.

  7. Female Special Effects Pioneers Share Stories From Star Wars, Back to the Future, and Beyond

    she blinded me with science

    In 1989, I was a young feminist who wanted to be a filmmaker. While there weren’t many women in this fairly “boys club” field, Academy Award winner Ed Jones hired me in Optical because he knew I could do the job. Approximately 25 people worked in the ILM optical department. The few women in this department - Peg Hunter, Lori Nelson, Mary Walter, and me - were effects pioneers in a male world. I called up these 'pioneer women' and asked them about their experiences in the ILM Optical Department.

  8. The Hoverboard from Back to the Future 2 Returns as an Electric Skateboard for Charity [Video]

    This is heavy.

    We are drawing extremely close to 2015, which is the year Marty McFly arrives in the future in Back to the Future Part 2. Unfortunately, we're still quite a bit away from flying cars and skateboards, but ZBoard is going to bail us all out by coming in just under the wire with a replica of the movie's hoverboard.

  11. Back to the Future’s DeLorean Receives Its Long-Awaited Hover Conversion [VIDEO]

    Don't Try This At Home

    If memory serves, we don't know exactly when hover technology started being utilized by the masses. Though it's somewhere between 1985 and 2015 if Back to the Future 2 is any indication. While we may have the technology, we're nowhere near using it to make our cars fly but that didn't stop one gentleman from trying. Matthew Riese raised over $5,500 in a Kickstarter campaign to fulfill his dream and complete the alterations on the DeLorean. But at least for this experiment, he did not need roads.

  12. Almanac, About a Time Traveler Who Takes Advantage of a Sports Almanac From the Future, Reminds Us of Something…

    Oh Hollywood

    I have't exactly been waiting around with bated breath to find out the plot of the upcoming Michael Bay-produced Almanac. As you can imagine, the sort of film Bay gets involved in doesn't really fall under our umbrella of interest here at The Mary Sue, unless of course there's something crazy going on like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles being turned into aliens or Bay attempting to defend the dignity of Transformers. But while I may not be into the filmography of Michael Bay, I am into the Back to the Future trilogy. So when it turns out that the plot of Almanac, found footage flick produced by Bay's Platinum Dunes production company, involves a teenage boy finding a time machine and a sports almanac and using the pair of them to make a bunch of money? You're darn right that captures my attention.

    And All Was Right With the World

    All bow before the altar of Mondo. They always deliver when it comes to inventive, artistically stunning movie posters, and this Black Friday it was no different. Sadly all of their new poster designs—of Back to the Future Part II, Psycho, RoboCop, and (my personal favorite) The Bride of Frankenstein—sold out shortly after being debuted on Mondo's Twitter account, but the images are after the jump for you to admire from afar.
