Back to the Future bridges the gap between science fiction and humor with the tale of Marty McFly, played by Michael J. Fox. A mid-eighties teenager befriends a seemingly-mad scientist as his closest friend, played by Christopher Lloyd. His plans of a weekend escape with his girlfriend Jennifer become foiled and young McFly has to deal with the loss of his attempts at a stay over with his mate. It isn't until McFly's friend Doc Brown enlists his assistance in filming his greatest contribution to mankind that he finds himself to be over his head.
Doc Brown has stolen plutonium for his time traveling device, and they have come for payback. Having to elude the attackers, McFly jumps into the time traveling Delorean and ends up in 1955. Now he is left alone in hopes of finding his friend and letting him know of his fate. While in search, Marty stumbles upon his father at a younger age, who is victim to the bullying of Biff's father. His paths cross with his mother as well when he falls from a tree while trying to assist his father in the attempts of wooing her. His mother falls in love with Marty, which creates a lapse in the time spectrum, causing the possibility of fate for Marty before he is even able to be born.
Marty McFly must convince the Doc to help him return to 1985 so that his existence does not disturb the system any more than it has, but where does one find enough power to drive the time machine? Only Marty knows when enough power will be generated, and his alliance with the Doc proves to be one that spans the test of time. Back to the Future is full of adventure and humor from start to finish, whether it is in the 1980's, 1950's, or even the future.
Hoverboards and flying cars are still a work in progress, but that doesn't mean our dreams of a 2015 like the one we saw in "Back to the Future" are dead. Nike designer Tinker Hatfield announced today at a trade show in Long Beach, CA, that we might see the Nike MAG, complete with power laces, released sometime this year. The shoes are modeled after the pair seen in "Back to the Future Part II," in which Marty McFly travels to the far-off future year of 2015.
Your latest elaborate Internet hoax comes to you now in the form of hoverboards. A very convincing video went viral today from a (supposed) company called Huvr Tech, claiming to have created the first fully functioning hoverboard, a la "Back to the Future." Not only are the special effects in the video slick enough to fool many who watch it, but somehow the people behind Huvr have gathered an impressive group of celebrities to star in the video. "Back to the Future" star Christopher Lloyd is joined by pro skater Tony Hawk and retired football player Terrell Owens in the video, where they seemingly demo the product.
As we all know, society is meant to have hoverboards in mass production by October of 2015. We know this because of the historical archives of the "Back to the Future" documentaries. Yet things weren't looking great for the human race in terms of hoverboard technology, as it all seemed just out of reach. Until now. Hendo Hover has created the first working hoverboard, which glides just centimeters off the ground. Naturally, they got legendary professional skateboarder Tony Hawk to test it out.
Like many stories these days, this one begins with a couple curiously synced-up tweets. So "Back To The Future" producer Frank Marshall informs his followers, "Something big is coming soon. Can't say anything yet. No one should know too much about their own destiny." OK, that's a well-played reference cue for "Back To The Future" fans to awaken their fan-frenzy. But . . . why? The downloadable video game series has concluded. The trilogy has made its way onto every viewable format save Netflix streaming.
It's been a long time since Robert Zemeckis directed a live-action movie: his last was "Cast Away" back in 2000. It's been even longer since he visited a time travel storyline, as he did with the "Back to the Future" trilogy, which remain some of the best time travel movies ever made. Zemeckis could soon return to form in both cases as he's currently in talks to direct the exciting upcoming project "Replay." The script, written by "Lucky Number Slevin" scribe Jason Smilovic, is an adaptation of Ken Grimwood's novel of the same name.
