'Back To The Future II' Predictions For 2015

Drones, Hoverboards, Flying Cars & Fax Machines: What 2015 Looke
Way back in 1989, when "Back to the Future II" hit theaters, the film gave us a glimpse of what was to come when Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) and Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) traveled to the future -- the year 2015 to be exact.

Some of the technological innovations of the future that the film, which turns 26 this year, included have been realized already; while others -- particularly (and sadly) the Hoverboard -- have yet to become a reality.

While Hoverboards, self-drying clothing and self-tying shoes (the latter of which Nike promises will arrive by the end of the year!) haven't arrive...

The 80's have become so trendy as a decade, its hard to believe just a few short years ago everyone was embarrassed to having survived it! From leg warmers to Ray Bans, the fashion of the decade left something to be desired, but it wasn't the fashion that made the decade so richly rewarding, it was the movies. From the bad ("The Last American Virgin") to the greatest (John Hughes anyone?), the movies of the 1980's left a mark on American cinema unlike any other, and launched a bounty of film who are considered credible actors today.

Top 10 Greatest And Most Memorable Teaser Trailers
If there truly is art in making movie trailers, then teaser trailers should be considered the Mona Lisa of the film world. And with the recent barrage of summer teasers hitting the net and theaters, from "Godzilla" to the new "X-Men: Days of Future Past," there’s no shortage of trailer teasing goodness.

The 80s might have been the age of MTV and Heavy Metal, but don’t think that there weren’t some thrilling films rocking at the box office as well. This denim-clad, hairspray overflowing decade birthed the movie blockbuster megafranchise and the teenage angst anthem, selling out theater seats as galactic space emperors and high school heartthrobs sent cinematic shockwaves up our spines.

The movies may not have been as Oscar-worthy as those from ten years earlier. But just like the high top sneakers and parachute pants the defined the decade, these movies were loud, flamboyant, and instantly...

Although it's been outlawed in 2072, the mob secretly uses the technology to cleanly dispose of anyone who may be a threat to them.

Gordon-Levitt plays one of the top loopers and makes a wealthy living from his job; but he's taken by surprise when his latest target ends up being himself (Willis), sent ba...

A fire last night at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta nearly threatened to put Madea out of commission.

Mikhail Baryshnikov Destroyed Lea Thompson's Ballet Dreams

Mikhail Baryshnikov
Back To The Future star Lea Thompson has ballet superstar Mikhail Baryshnikov to thank for her acting career because he told her she would never make it professionally as a dancer.

The criticism destroyed her ballet dreams when she was 20, but he was right and she immediately found success as an actress.

Thompson tells WENN, "I was in American Ballet II when I was 20 and Baryshnikov was the head of that and it came the moment when he had to say whether we would advance to the company or not. He said, 'You're a lovely dancer but you're too stocky.'

"I was 98 pounds and I was like, 'I c...

Back to the Future star Lea Thompson is hoping for a role in the Broadway musical version of the hit film franchise, insisting she'd love to be a part of the stage show.

The actress played Marty McFly's mom - and smitten school pal - in the time travel movies, and she's hoping there might be a role for her when the musical hits Broadway.

She says, "I played Sally Bowles on Broadway and that was fun playing a drug addict. They're talking about putting Back To The Future on Broadway which would be interesting.

Back To The Future
The future from the classic "Back To The Future" movies is here - toymakers Mattel are considering developing replicas of Marty McFly's hover board.

Michael J. Fox wowed film fans by zipping around on the floating skateboards in the "Back to the Future" sequels and now the real thing could be on the market in time for Christmas if there's big enough demand.

Mattel bosses announced the news at the recent New York Toy Fair, revealing a limited edition run will be available to pre-order next month, according to Slash Film - but there's still no guarantee the boards will go into production.

It’s been a big week for “Supernatural” fans. The little show that could won two People’s Choice Awards (Favorite Network Drama and Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show). Suck it, “Vampire Diaries!” also reported that—SPOILER ALERT— “Supernatural” staple Jim Beaver will eventually return, and my favorite guest star, Mark Pellegrino will be reprising his fabulously evil turn as Lucifer in the episode 15. So this week's episode felt like icing on a very awesome pop cult cake.

“Time After Time” was artfully pieced together in a non-linear manner, but I’m going to do my best to break...

Actor Gilles Marini has bounced back from the cancellation of his family drama Brothers & Sisters by landing a role as a dad on hit new series Switched At Birth.

But High School Musical star Zac Efron -who's hooked on time travel - dreams of taking over for Fox if there's ever another film added to the franchise or a remake.

Zac is no stranger to time-travel movies though - his character in 17 Again (played as an adult by Matthew Perry) is struck by lightning and becomes a teenager all over again.

“If two sets of the same atoms exist in the same universe at the same time, where did the additional atoms come from? It can make you hungry, thinking about questions like that. ‘I haven't eaten since later this afternoon,’ one [character] complains.” -- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, October 29, 2004

Time travel can be sketchy dramatic territory. No matter how you go about things, something isn’t going to work out. Even a fairly tidy movie like Back to the Future becomes rife with paradoxes and impossible bullshit if you think about it for more than four seconds. Marty goes back in time ...

Radical Retro Movie Review: 'Back To The Future Part III' On 20th Anniversary

5/25/2010 2:00pm EDT
The “Back to the Future” series captures our hearts because it successfully blends science fiction, action, adventure, and comedy to show us teenager Marty McFly’s (Michael J. Fox) travels through time with his pal Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd). These films follow a logical progression of events that transitions smoothly from one to another, but what’s interesting is that thematically they also maintain a forward progression.

“Back to the Future” establishes the sense of awe at the concept of time travel. In this chapter Marty is catapulted into the past, where he nearly prevents his ow...
