Star Wars: The Force Awakens has achieved the #3 spot in the highest-grossing movies of all time category. Domestically, it's the #1 movie--but worldwide, it still has to beat Titanic and Avatar. I wonder how long James Cameron thinks he'll be safe.Read More
Original Marty McFly Eric Stoltz Made It Into the Theatrical Version of Back to the Future After All
File under: this is heavy.
It's no secret that Eric Stoltz was originally cast in Back to the Future and filmed a bunch of the movie before he was eventually replaced by first-choice Michael J. Fox. What you may not know is that a shot with Stoltz as Marty McFly still made it into the final film, which you can see in the video above.Read More
Fair warning: You WILL be humming "The Power Of Love" for the next week.
Back in March, the Kickstarter for Back in Time, the Back to the Future documentary looked pretty exciting. Now fully-funded and boasting an exciting trailer a month from Marty Mcfly's visit to the future, I'm definitely ready to go back. It goes from the making of the movie, to the cast's experiences, fandom, and its influence in pop culture. There's a clip in the trailer involving Michael J. Fox's charity that I'm sure will bring some tears. Check it out!Read More
Okay, so where's the Lexus Jetpack?
The Lexus hoverboard, powered by "superconducting magnetic levitation," looks like a skateboard powered by a dry ice machine. It can hover 3-4 inches above the ground, or lower depending upon the weight of its rider.Read More
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.Read More
This is my density.
I was able to get up close and personal with Sideshow Collectible new and upcoming statues and figures at San Diego Comic-Con. While I'm constantly impressed with their detail and overall magnificence, none at the show hit me quite in the feels as their exclusive Marty McFly Hot Toys figure.Read More

Preorder all the things!
Luckily for those of us who aren't currently attending San Diego Comic-Con, not being part of the fun means you also aren't hemorrhaging money out the wazoo on all the tuff you could buy there. But given the amount of toys being debuted at the con this weekend, it's only a matter of time before we, too, can be broke in the name of nerdy collectibles.Read More
Please excuse the crudity of this model.
Soon, you'll be able to travel through time like Marty McFly—complete with plenty of Huey Lewis and the News—and go back to see the Hill Valley of the past. For an upcoming Back to the Future screening, scale replicas of Hill Valley and its different time periods are being constructed. This is heavy.Read More
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.Read More
Today is Thursday, October 21, 2010. Not a particularly eventful day by most standards, until you ponder this little tidbit: In exactly five years, on October 21, 2015, Marty McFly, Doc Brown, and a strangely unfamiliarRead More
Before Michael J. Fox leapt from TV to film stardom by playing Marty McFly in the Back to the Future trilogy, there was another Marty: Eric Stoltz, who you may know, depending on your vintage, as Rocky Dennis in the 1985 film Mask or as Daniel Graystone on Caprica. Back to the Future was five weeks into shooting with Stoltz as the lead when director Robert Zemeckis decided things weren't quite right: Comparing notes with executive producer Stephen Spielberg, Zemeckis said "I just don't think we're getting the laughs I was hoping we would get." They ultimately made the "horrific," "heartbreaking" decision to replace Stoltz with Fox, reshot five weeks of work, and thus the Back to the Future we know today was born. This never-before-seen footage from the Back to the Future 25th Anniversary Trilogy DVD and Blu-Ray box set, which comes out on October 26th, gives us a glimpse at an alternate BttF where Stoltz plays McFly.
