New 'Back to the Future' Comic Book Answers Some Burning Questions

Answers? Where the Back to the Future franchise is going, we don't need answers. But we're getting them anyway! And they should be fun nonetheless. While fans will likely never see another sequel to the 1985 time-travel classic, there have been new comic book series depicting "untold stories and alternate timelines" and more. Another one will apparently be even more tied to the original trilogy.  According to Bob Gale, who wrote the movies and now works on the comics, the upcoming "Tales from the Time Train" series will continue directly from the final scene of Back to the Future Part III and show where Doc Brown and his family went to next, as well as some of where they'd been.

1941: A Great Comedy For Slim Pickens Day

On Monday, August 28, 2017, Turner Classic Movies will devote an entire day of their “Summer Under the Stars” series to the late, great Louis Burton Lindley Jr. If that name doesn’t sound familiar, well, then just picture the fella riding the bomb like a buckin’ bronco at the end of Dr. Strangelove…, or the racist taskmaster heading up the railroad gang in Blazing Saddles, or the doomed Sheriff Baker, who gets one of the loveliest, most heartbreaking sendoffs in movie history in Sam Peckinpah’s Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid.

Lindley joined the rodeo circuit when he was 13 and soon picked up the name that would follow him throughout the length of his professional career, in rodeo and in movies & TV. One of the rodeo vets got a look at the lank newcomer and told him, “Slim pickin’s. That’s all you’re gonna get in this rodeo.

Christopher Lloyd talks about Back to the Future 4 and playing Doc Brown one more time

Author: Scott Davis

88 miles an hour!! Don’t get too excited guys but those of us who simply adore Back to the Future have been given a little glimmer of hope of the series returning for a fourth adventure. A small glimmer mind you, but it’s certainly better than nothing!

There has been talk of a fourth film ever since the final moments of 1990’s Back to the Future: Part III but since then, the trilogy of films have stayed as just that. But this week, we may have had our first small step towards getting a new film. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, star Christopher Lloyd spoke about the series of the films and how he would react should he be presented with the idea of a Part IV. The actor said:

Wild, Dangerous, Imperfect, Wounded Grandeur: 18 Double Features About America

The United States is “my country, right or wrong,” of course, and I consider myself a patriotic person, but I’ve never felt that patriotism meant blind fealty to the idea of America’s rightful dominance over global politics or culture, and certainly not to its alleged preferred status on God’s short list of favored nations, or that allegiance to said country was a license to justify or rationalize every instance of misguided, foolish, narrow-minded domestic or foreign policy.

In 2012, when this piece was first posted, it seemed like a good moment to throw the country’s history and contradictions into some sort of quick relief, and the most expedient way of doing that for me was to look at the way the United States (and the philosophies at its core) were reflected in the movies, and not just the ones which approached the country head-on as a subject.

Back to the Future 4 Fan-Made Trailer Is Amazing

Back to the Future 4 Fan-Made Trailer Is Amazing
The fan-made Back to the Future 4 trailer is setting the Internet on fire. Fans of Back to the Future have been wondering about a possible addition to the franchise for over 25 years and a new movie does not seem to be possible at this time. A Back to the Future Broadway musical has been in the works since 2004 and was just recently postponed, but that's not exactly what most fans are looking for, is it?. What fans are looking for is exactly what this fan-made trailer delivers.

The Back to the Future 4 fan-made trailer uses footage from Michael j. Fox and Christopher Lloyd reprising their iconic roles of Marty McFly and Doc Brown over the past 10 years. Footage from commercials including Toyota, Lego Dimensions, Garbarino, and Jimmy Kimmel Live are creatively edited together in a cohesive manner that almost feels like the real thing.

Ghosts of Futures Predicted: How Hollywood Imagined We’d Be Living Now

Author: Cai Ross

Earth’s future has always proved a playground of possibility for scriptwriters and directors. Artists are rarely content to make do within the confines of what is merely possible. Setting a movie years in the future is a way of letting their minds off the leash, while usually offering an allegorical reflection of the times in which we currently live. As one fictional time-travel expert once said, “The future is not set. There is no fate but what we make for ourselves.”

Snow White & The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders is the latest in a long line of visual soothsayers who has made his own fate in the form of Ghost In The Shell, which offers us a metropolitan futureworld full of gymnastic augmented cybernetic agents, colossal 3D advertisements and the increasingly regular sight of Juliette Binoche in a lab-coat.

Like many futuristic sci-fi movies, Ghost In The Shell

The 1992 film where audiences chose from 68 plot twists

Simon Brew Apr 24, 2017

It cost $70,000 to fit out a New York cinema to play the movie I'm Your Man. How did letting an audience choose what happens in a film go?

Sometimes, history consigns relatively revolutionary projects to the back of everyone's minds, never to be heard from again. That might just be the case for the movie I'm Your Man.

The film was released in December 1992, and was supposedly set to showcase new interactive cinema technology that had been developed by Loews Theatres in the Us. As such, the movie premiered at a specially-equipped Loews cinema in New York City, where audiences were charged $3 a seat for the 20 minute movie.

The gimmick, though, was that they could choose how the story panned out. Written and directed by Bob Bejan (who also voiced Michaelangelo on a pair of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles albums), I'm Your Man offered audiences 68 moments in

No ‘E.T.’ or ‘Back To The Future’ remakes to happen. Ever.

Back To The Future remake will never happen, and neither will E.T., says producer of the original films.

More on the Back To The Future remake news below.

There are some movies that simply cannot be remade. Ever. Two at the forefront of discussion today are E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial and Back To The Future. The producer of both of those movies, Frank Marshall, has been speaking to Yahoo! Movies that he will never, ever give permission for a redo of either.

“Yeah [we won’t reboot Back to The Future], as long as I have my say. No, that one exists just like E.T. – we’re never touching those. I love watching it.”

Earlier this year, Allied and Forrest Gump director Robert Zemeckis said that even if Universal Pictures wanted to, a remake of Back to the Future could not go ahead without the approval of himself and writer Bob Gale.

Back to the Future and E.T. Reboots Will Never Happen Promises Producer

Back to the Future and E.T. Reboots Will Never Happen Promises Producer
Last year, fans celebrated the 30th Anniversary of the iconic classic Back to the Future, with Universal Pictures bringing the hit movie back to theaters for a limited time. In this day and age of countless reboots and remakes, fans were reassured that Back to the Future will not get rebooted, at least not for many years. Last June, director Robert Zemeckis revealed that it was impossible for Universal Pictures to reboot the franchise without the approval of the director and writer Bob Gale, but today we have word that producer Frank Marshall won't let it happen either.

The original contracts both Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale signed with Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment give the director and writer final say on any Back to the Future movies until they die. While it seems unlikely that either filmmaker will die anytime soon, at least fans can be assured that Frank Marshall

Robert Zemeckis Receives France’s Order of Arts and Letters Honor
Paris — On the eve of “Allied’s” Paris premiere, Robert Zemeckis received France’s Order of Arts and Letters medal from Culture Minister Audrey Azoulay during an intimate ceremony attended by “Allied” star Marion Cotillard on Saturday.

Newswire: Back To The Future writer laments that Cubs win ruined his joke

The Cubs’ 108-year-drought-erasing World Series win not only made history, it’s also had deep ramifications on the future—specifically, Back To The Future Part II, whose prediction of a Cubs championship was once every bit as outlandish as the idea of a bloated, bullying casino magnate achieving autocratic rule. Last year, as the film’s actual date of Oct. 21, 2015 arrived and the Cubs edged closer to the playoffs—and Donald Trump was still just an entertaining shit-show—co-screenwriter Bob Gale shrugged off the eerie parallels, believing no matter what came to pass in the real world, “the joke will still be funny” in the film. But here we are in 2016, and Gale’s not so certain anymore that anyone will laugh. (At the Cubs joke, anyway; we’re still four days away from deciding the latter.)
