You’re forgiven if you didn’t know much about the Denver Film Festival. Nevertheless, there’s a lot to talk about in the aftermath of the ten day affair. Highlights included very interesting industry panels (a new addition this year), a few films slated for a wide release, and a local debut for a major Colorado-produced film, The Boat Builder. In a state where most of the money for films was recently devoured by Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, it was nice to see a Colorado-made film get a warm reception.
I wasn’t able to finagle my way into every film I wanted to; such is the tragedy of any festival. But, I was able to see a variety of films big and small and elbow my way into a few industry panels. Below are brief reviews of every film I saw, from the incredible — to the barely edible. »

52 years ago today, viewers first watched a show that would become a British and sci-fi icon. “Doctor Who” premiered on this date on BBC in 1963. In that episode, William Hartnell played the first iteration of the Time Lord who would take audiences on all sorts of fun, odd, and even sorrowful adventures through spacetime. He played the character for four seasons (series, to you British folks), and since then — thanks to the Doctor’s two hearts and ability to regenerate — 11 more (11ish more) men have played the character. Though “Doctor Who” started off airing just in the U.K., the show has since managed to capture millions upon millions of hearts all around the world — even though we humans only have one each. For evidence of the show’s popularity and impact, just turn to the Oxford English Dictionary — which has a few entries from “Doctor Who,” including Tardis — or »

Tie-in video games are nothing new in the moviemaking or televisual world. Through these spin-off products, we can play out adventures featuring our favourite characters without having to leave the house.
Most of the time, though, said characters don’t sound quite right. For financial reasons, you’ll often see a different voice cast step in to replace the overly expensive stars from the original film or TV version. Admittedly, these stand-ins do a very good job from time to time. But you can always tell the difference.
Sometimes, though, providing a rare treat for fans, actors can be convinced – by money, passion or a good script - to reprise their iconic film or TV characters once more for a video game adventure. Here are 32 games that featured instances of this incredibly fun phenomenon… »
"The documentary film Back in Time is, at its heart, a look at the very real impact the Back to the Future movies have had on our culture. What was once a little idea that spawned a tightly-focused documentary has grown into something truly amazing over two years of filming. Back in Time is a cinematic monument to the vastness of the trilogy’s fandom. In addition to the footage and interviews revolving around the time machine itself, the crew found that simply by delving into the impact of the trilogy an epic journey began to unfold before them. The crew captured countless hours of footage during filming. From Steven Spielberg to Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, to the Sheas and Hollers, and from James Tolkan »

In that post, we asked if anyone was interested if we went hunting for more archive images for similar posts. Enough people said yes, so here we are.
This time, we've found a few official press snaps from behind the scenes of the peerless Back To The Future. The movie, which is available now on DVD, Blu-ray, streaming and probably still VHS somewhere, is of course 30 years old now.
And if you click on the gallery at the top, you can find the pictures that we've managed to discovered.

Last month, Christopher Lloyd revisited the past with the thirtieth anniversary of "Back To The Future." Fans flocked to revival screenings and were able to enjoy a nostalgic ride in the cinematic DeLorean. However, even as Lloyd looks back, he continues to move forward, and making its World Premiere on Friday, November 6th as part of the Opening Night events for the 30th Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival is "The Boat Builder." The independent drama, directed by Arnold Grossman, and produced by Richard J. Bosner, provides a centerpiece role for the actor who plays Abner, a bitter, widowed, mariner who forges an unlikely bond with a young orphan as they embark on building a boat together. And speaking with Lloyd recently, he shared how he relished the opportunity to dive into a part that had a measure of complexity to it. "...he's of retirement age, he's elderly, he doesn't have a lot of resources, »

It was a solid bet that Marty McFly and Doc Brown’s visit to “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last week would trigger some big numbers.
The characters — played by Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd — journeyed to Oct. 21 episode of ABC’s late-night program and the event has now been viewed close to 14.3 million times on the show’s YouTube channel. It currently holds the title as the second most-viewed clip on the page, behind March’s “Mean Tweets” video starring President Obama.
The skit was also fortuitous, as Kimmel jokingly told the characters that more people will probably see them in this format anyway.
“People are watching us on TV right now, although honestly most people will probably watch us on their phone on the toilet tomorrow,” Kimmel says.
The video was also wildly popular on the show’s Facebook page. The segment generated nearly 22 million video views as well as 7.7 million likes, »

Great Scott! Christopher Lloyd is ready to to slip back into Dr. Emmett Brown's threads. The legendary actor reveals to Us Weekly that he hopes a Back to the Future reboot will happen down the line. Lloyd, 77, starred opposite Michael J. Fox (Marty McFly) in the 1985 movie and went on to reprise his role in Back to the Future Part II (1989) and Back to the Future Part III (1990). He and his former costars commemorated Back to the Future Day on Wednesday, and went [...] »
Back to the Future: 30th Anniversary Trilogy
Directed by Robert Zemeckis.
Raise your hands if you’re middle-aged, with kids, and have bought the Back to the Future movies on home video more times than the number of kids you have. Yeah, that’s a whole lot of you.
The Bttf trilogy has already received a Blu-ray release, but since we’ve not only hit the 30th anniversary of the first movie but have also arrived in the year 2015, where Marty traveled to in Back to the Future Part II, someone in Universal’s marketing department probably would have been fired if this set wasn’t on the calendar this year. And, of course, it was scheduled for release on Oct. 20, just a day before the day on which Marty arrived in the second film. (Since home video releases are always on Tuesdays, »

Amidst the influx of celebratory stories on "Back to the Future Day" -- made even more special by the fact that October 21, 2015 was the actual future date Marty, Doc and Jennifer travel to in Back to the Future II -- Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd reprised their roles as Marty and Doc respectively for a hilarious segment on Jimmy Kimmel's late-night show. Not only were they dressed in the same outfits they wore in the original Back to the Future, but they remained in full character playing the duo as they arrive in an alternate 2015 that looks nothing like the one from Back to the Future II. Smartphone and Donald Trump jokes ensue. Check it out below. This may be the closest we ever get to a Back to the Future sequel featuring the original Marty and...

The past, present and future collided on October 21, 2015 when cast and filmmakers of the Academy Award-winning, blockbuster franchise Back to The Future reunited for a special one-night-only screening and Q&A with fans at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 in New York, NY.

In 1989, Back to the Future Part II gave the world a glimpse of the future as Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled to 2015 . . . or, if our calculations are correct, October 21, 2015, to be exact. The cast reunited to celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime date, as well as to commemorate »
Toyota released a fun new commercial to coincide with the arrival of Oct. 21, the date in the ‘future’ Marty McFly and Emmett “Doc” Brown travelled to in Back To The Future: Part 2. In it actors Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd have a little reunion and argue about whether today’s technology has caught up with […]

Well, their future is now our past, and some of the things that “Back to the Future Part II” predicted have not come to pass. Most Americans didn’t take a flying car to work this morning, teenagers are not enjoying the pleasures of the hoverboard, families don’t warm up dehydrated pizzas, “Jaws” mercifully never made it to chapter 19 and the World Series remains frustratingly out of grasp for the Chicago Cubs.
That didn’t matter to lovers of Robert Zemeckis’ time-bending trilogy. A theatrical re-release of the three “Back to the Future” films grossed an estimated $1.65 million from 1,815 North American theaters that offered up a helping of nostalgia. They returned to theaters to mark “Back to the Future Day. »

Footage of Stoltz's four weeks shooting the sci-fi classic have remained in studio vaults for 30 years - with only brief snippets being released as a Blu-ray extra.
"I'm not going to say never," he said (via text). "We did not destroy the footage, because we expect that sometime, in some future anniversary, we may let it get out there.
"They may see it sometime. I'm not going to say for sure, much less when. But I will say that we had the opportunity to completely destroy it. And we did not. So, it does exist in a vault somewhere."
Gale would later caution that Stoltz's »
Oct. 21 marked the official “Back to the Future Day,” and with that, fans turned out in big numbers for a theatrical re-release of the time-travel trilogy. The re-release generated an estimated $1.65 million in 1,815 North American theaters on Wednesday and a total of $4.8 million worldwide, Universal reported. The original trilogy grossed more than $416 million over the three films, which included 1985’s “Back to the Future,” 1989’s “Back to the Future Part II” and 1990’s “Back to the Future Part III.” See Video: 'Back to the Future' Reunion: Michael J.

Set your time machine back to 1985, where we're jumping into an action-packed Christopher Lloyd comedy about adventures in the 1950s. It's called "Clue." And it's perfect. "Clue," based on the Parker Brothers board game, wasn't a hit. In fact, it's taken decades to catch on as a cult favorite. But a devoted army of amateur gumshoes have idolized and memorized "Clue," turning the silly and feminist whodunit into a rad comedy for the ages. Though it has three separate endings (which provide different solutions to the mystery at hand), "Clue" is an endlessly energetic celebration of silliness and murder. Now that we've been watching this homicidal romp for 30 years, let's celebrate 30 reasons why it's where many of us park our nostalgia-powered DeLoreans. »

“Jimmy Kimmel Live” saw a boost in the ratings Wednesday thanks to a visit from “Back to the Future” stars Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd in addition to presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

Back to the Future was out in full force yesterday to celebrate the day Marty McFly arrived in the future, and Jimmy Kimmel brought out the big guns, reuniting Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd (as well as a certain someone who’s too hip to be square) for a pretty funny skit which sees Marty and Doc Brown gatecrash the show to comment on how the real 2015 is pretty lame compared to the 2015 of the movie. »
