The 2015 that Doc and Marty time traveled to in Back to the Future Part II was pretty awesome. Way cooler than our 2015. I’m still waiting for a decent hoverboard and those self-lacing sneakers. Flying cars too.
Dual Divisions gave golfing a pretty heavy dose of geekery with its modded Back to the Future-themed golf cart. Red Deer College commissioned the cart for its 30th annual golf tournament, thereby commissioning it for all its annual golf tournaments.
Back to the Future is one of my all-time favorite films. In fact, the whole trilogy is pretty awesome. But it’s the 1985 original that really kicked things off, and it’s celebrating its 30th anniversary now.
In Back to the Future II, Marty and Doc jump forward by 30 years, and the date set on their DeLorean time machine was October 21, 2015. That date is nearly upon us, and to celebrate, a new Back to the Future Blu-ray box set is coming to a store near you.
Back to the Future introduced us to Doc and Marty back in the ’80s and spawned a memorable three-flick franchise that was rather extraordinary for its time.
What you see here are some vinyl collectables of Marty and Doc that don’t look much like the characters from the movies.
You don’t have to be from October 21, 2015 to build your own Back to the Future hoverboard you know. This video will show you how. It actually looks very simple and the board looks just like the one in the movie!
With 2015 halfway over, it seemed like we’d fail to meet Back to the Future‘s prophecy of a hoverboard. The hero of destiny, Mattel, has practically given up. And then Lexus brought this thing out.
Now for the bad news.
My favorite ’80s movie franchise is easily Back to the Future. While the third film set in the old west was a bit crappy, the first two films are some of my all-time favorite movies. I wanted one of those hoverboards so badly growing up I could taste it.
Remember when Marty and Doc travel back to the future and arrive less than five months from now on October 21st, 2015? Doc tells Marty to pull out his pants pockets because in the future all the kids wear their pants inside out.
In September of 2014, we caught our first glimpse of a slick Mr. Fusion replica just like the one Doc Brown had on his DeLorean time machine. The catch at the time was that the replica wasn’t available just yet.
Along with the Tim Burton Batmobile iPhone 6 case, Bandai also added this Back to the Future DeLorean DMC-12 to its Crazy Case series. The case has light up headlights and flux bands, and its hood and front tires slide away to expose the iPhone 6’s camera and side buttons.
Bob’s Prop Shop specializes in creating replicas of famous movie cars and props. Its most famous replica is that of the DeLorean DMC-12 from Back to the Future, which it sells for $65,000-$75,000 (USD) and rents for $1,500 a day.
As one of its April Fools pranks this year, ThinkGeek made a mockup of a USB car charger that looks like the flux capacitor from Back to the Future. Fans loved it so much that ThinkGeek made it a real product.
