To promote the upcoming 30th anniversary home entertainment release of the Back To The Future trilogy, Universal is pulling out all the stops, launching a short film featuring Christopher Lloyd (you can see a teaser for that here) and now a funny trailer for Jaws 19. It’s the film, you’ll likely know, that is playing in “Holomax 3D” in Hill Valley on October 21, 2015 when Marty and Doc arrive in the future during the second film. And as opposed to just mocking up a quick bit of shark footage, the team behind the promo have bitten a page from the book of the 22 Jump Street filmmakers, running through the complete list of fictional Jaws sequels from Jaws 5 until 19. That last film directed, of course, by Max Spielberg.It’s a nice riff on franchise fever, reboots and tie-ins, even as we worry that it heralds a possible future for the »
Back to The Future will celebrate its 30th anniversary on October 21, and Universal Studios is doing everything in their power to remind us of the big event. Yes folks, October 21, 2015 is the day that Marty and Doc go to in the future, as seen in Back to the Future Part II and in order to promote the upcoming BluRay release, Universal has released the official teaser trailer for Jaws 19.
Fans of the series should recognize the reference. When Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) arrives in the future (in Robert Zemeckis’ 1989 sequel Back to the Future Part II), one of the first things he notices is an aggressive marketing display for Jaws 19, a film directed by Max Spielberg that is screening at the local Holomax theater.
The Jaws 19 commercial isn’t the only fun video released. Universal has also created a short film featuring Christopher Lloyd reprising his role as Doc Brown — and earlier today, »

Great Scott! In 1985 Director Robert Zemeckis, Executive Producer Steven Spielberg and Producer/Screenwriter Bob Gale embarked on a three-part journey through time that broke box office records worldwide and catapulted Back to the Future into one of the most beloved trilogies in motion picture history.
In 1989, the filmmakers gave us a glimpse of the future in Back To The Future Part II as Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled to 2015…or, if our calculations are correct, October 21, 2015, to be exact. “The Future” has finally arrived.
Now, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment celebrates this once-in-a-lifetime date, as well as the 30th Anniversary of the groundbreaking first film, with three new releases debuting on October 20, 2015.
In the clip above, at the 1:03 mark, Marty is about to be consumed by a holographic shark at the Holomax theater.
The marquee reads, “This time, it’s really, really personal” – directed by Max Spielberg.

The studio released a trailer for “Jaws 19,” a movie that was playing in theaters when Marty arrived in Hill Valley on Oct. 21, 2015. Even in the mid 1980s, the film was clearly making a jab at the amount of sequels popular movies inspire and the trailer continues the joke, showing how much more absurd the franchise became with each installment.
The “Jaws” trailer isn’t the only way Universal is celebrating the 30th anniversary of “Back to the Future.” They’ve also released a special 30th anniversary Blu-ray of the trilogy — complete with a short film featuring Christopher Lloyd reprising his role as Doc Brown — and made the movies available to stream for free on Amazon Prime in the month of October. »

October 21 is officially Back to The Future day, and with the first movie in the franchise about to celebrate it's 30th Anniversary, Universal Studios is pulling out all the stops. As any Bttf fan worth his salt knows, October 21, 2015 is the day that Marty and Doc go to in the future, as seen in Back to the Future Part II. And some of the artifacts from this fictional time period are becoming a reality. Earlier today, Pepsi announced that they are finally delivering their long-awaited Pepsi Perfect soda. And now, we have the official teaser trailer for Jaws 19.
We won't actually get to see Jaws 19. And after watching the teaser trailer, you'll probably agree that's for the best. The footage goes through the entire trilogy, offering the plots of Jaws 5 through Jaws 18, leading into this latest 'fictional' sequel. It sounds like Bruce the Shark and his brood have been through an awful lot, »
Surprising Back to The Future fans everywhere, Pepsi officially confirms the long-awaited creation of Pepsi Perfect, the famous soda Marty McFly orders in Back to the Future Part II, the second installment of one of the most beloved trilogies in motion-picture history. The fantastical cola, made famous by the film, will officially be available on October 21, 2015, paying homage to the date Marty McFly travels to in the future. Since 1989, Back To The Future enthusiasts have waited patiently to see how the future unfolds. Said Lou Arbetter, Senior Director of Marketing, PepsiCo.
"Pepsi fans asked and we heard them loud and clear. The Back to the Future trilogy was as big a moment in pop culture history then as it is now, 30 years later. We are excited to be part of this moment and to bring fans something only Pepsi could deliver - and there's no need to wait - the future is now! »
There’s plenty to talk about in Lego Dimensions, and it’s not hard to see why. With a game jam-packed with a handful of different characters and worlds plucked straight from some of the most iconic franchises, it’s not hard to see the appeal, especially with the ‘toys-to-life’ genre being as popular as ever. Still, what amazes me the most about Lego Dimensions is that it exists at all.
As impressive as something like Disney Infinity is, both the game’s publisher (Warner Bros.) and developer (Traveller’s Tales) have pulled no punches (and as I imagine, spared no expense) when it comes licensing this time around. It’s perhaps one of the best mash-ups around, with series like Doctor Who, Back to the Future, Lord of the Rings, Batman, and even Portal making appearances. Licensing nightmares aside, there’s truly something for everyone here, whether that be »

Robert Zemeckis, director and co-writer of the classic '80s trilogy, has told Digital Spy that studio execs are constantly asking him to reboot the series - and he's enjoying telling them to make like a tree and get outta here.
"It's making them insane that we don't want to do another Back to the Future," said Zemeckis, who earlier revealed that he and co-creator Bob Gale wouldn't let a sequel or remake happen within their lifetime.
"It's like a pre-sold title for them - it would open gigantically [at the box office]. That's all that anyone cares about."
However, Christopher Lloyd will reprise his role as Doc Brown for a short film on the forthcoming 30th anniversary Blu-ray set. »

The Lego series of video games has been top-notch quality since its first installment, and has gone to strength to strength. When the announcement came earlier in the year that they were throwing their small plastic hat into the “Toys to Life” ring, competing with games like Disney INfinity and Skylanders, interest was high. As reports came out as to which of their licenses would be available in the game, that interest sailed even higher. Confounding the old belief that “It can’t be that good”, Lego Dimensions is a perfect mix of the Lego game franchise, that the company have been doing for years, with the interactivity and variety of the collectible figures and vehicles that the company have been doing for decades.
Of all the unique things the game brings to the table is the play pad itself. Like Disney and Skylanders, figures are placed on the pad »

It starts with a cry of pain. Then a look of terror or ecstasy. And then the body starts to change. Hair grows from the knuckles. Maybe the eyes turn black. Sometimes fangs sprout. Before you know it, the person in front of you isn’t a person anymore. The Transformation can be the most horrific moment in a horror film because it’s where the internal becomes the external. No more false faces. No more hiding. And depending how fearsome the new being is, no more running as well.
An American Werewolf in London (1981)– London wolf calling
It starts out so innocently. Knowing that a full moon is approaching, David Kessler (David Naughton) locks himself in the home of nurse Alex Price (Jenny Agutter) in order to be able to transform into a werewolf peacefully, not killing any innocent people and proving that he doesn’t have to commit »

Christopher Lloyd is officially back in the DeLorean for a new Back to the Future 30th anniversary short film, Doc Brown Saves the World. But this is far from the first time he's portrayed the Doc outside of the classic '80s trilogy.
1. Back to the Future: The Ride (1991)
It became a mini-film in itself as Thomas F Wilson turned up as Biff to swipe the DeLorean and kick things into gear. The ride closed in 2007, although if you're willing to rack up the air miles it's still going strong at Universal Studios Japan.
2. Back to the Future: The Animated Series (1991-1992)
This Saturday morning cartoon series only made it to two seasons, but it did »
Doc Brown Saves the World – available with new DVD boxset, ahead of seminal time-travelling date 21 October 2015 – features Christopher Lloyd reprising role as wild-eyed inventor

The last time we saw Christopher Lloyd’s Doc Brown he was travelling back in time on a flying stream train with his family. He has in fact also been glimpsed a few times since: in video games and cartoon spin-offs and a cameo in Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways to Die in the West.

While the word is still out on any kind of Back to the Future reboot or sequel, the story is continuing in other ways -- and we'll get to experience it next month when all sorts of Back to the Future-related schenanigans arrive in celebration of the original film's 30th anniversary. There will be a new comic book series debuting (and maybe even self-lacing Nike sneaks), as well as an original short film starring Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown. The short -- which may be the first live-action continuation of the Back to the Future narrative that we've seen (Doc Brown has popped up several times over the years, but none of those one-off appearances were really Bttf canon) -- is called Doc Brown Saves the World, and a teaser trailer for it is now available to...

October 21, 2015 flashed on the DeLorean’s time circuits, blasting Marty and Doc into the future to dally with the space-time continuum. That classic scene from the Back To The Future sequel becomes a reality in less than a month, and to coincide with that specific date, a dazzling 30th anniversary Blu-ray box set is due to arrive. An extensive package that includes all three feature movies and a slew of extras, it’s an unseen piece of content, however, that’s lighting up the web.
A short movie entitled Doc Brown Saves The World comes included in the boxset, and a cheeky teaser trailer has been released online to stoke curiosity. Christopher Lloyd reprises his role as the titular doc who travels once again to 2015 to inform the world that we’re actually living in a different 2015 than the one he and Marty explored. Confused? Don’t be. It’s »

There's some spiffy new features hitting the set, one of which includes a brand new short film entitled Doc Brown Saves The World.
