As we wait to see if and when Nike will unveil their self-lacing sneakers, or who will invent a commercial hoverboard that actually floats on water -- or whether Hollywood can somehow bang out another 14 Jaws movies to wrap some truth around that prophecy -- there is one thing Back to the Future fans will be able to get their hands on next month in honor of the future date Marty McFly travels to in Back to the Future II: October 21, 2015. Pepsi has announced that it will sell a limited amount of Pepsi Perfect bottles tied to the host of celebrations taking place in the month of October for the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future, not to mention the anniversary of that aforementioned historical date from Back to the Future II. You remember this scene...

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water, the trailer for Jaws 19 arrives!
Any Back to the Future fan will tell you that Jaws 19 was playing in theatres – complete with a Holomax billboard – when Marty McFly traveled into the future in Back to the Future II. Now, Marty’s future is our reality.
As the film franchise gets set to travel back into theatres on October 21, 2015, the exact date that Marty travels to in the second film of the trilogy, the Jaws 19 trailer is here to remind you that sharks won’t let anything stand in their way. Not the Big Apple, not outer space, and not even a family will slow down the ocean’s fiercest creature from taking your box office dollars.
The trailer spoof on blockbuster films is timed perfectly for our trip down memory lane as we get ready to be »

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.

2015 is a big year for “Back to the Future.” The beloved film celebrates 30 years (a “nice round number”) since its release, and October 21, 2015 marks the date that Doc and Marty travel to in “Back to the Future Part II.” Great Scott, this is heavy! Join us here as we count down to the festivities on this red letter date in the history of movies. We’re still waiting for Holomax theaters, but, thankfully, we don’t have to wait any longer for “Jaws 19.” Set to hit theaters this month (at least in Hill Valley), the 18th sequel for Steven Spielberg’s 1975 thriller finally has a trailer. Check out the trailer featuring John Williams’ iconic score that Universal released today — which also gets you up to speed on “Jaws 5” through “Jaws 18.” Don’t get too hyped up for “Jaws 19,” though. Our peek at the October 22, 2015 issue of USA Today, Hill Valley »

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. »

First it was Pepsi Perfect, now Jaws 19 is coming this October 21st. Well.....not really, but we have a trailer for the Max Spielberg directed sequel that ties into the festivities to celebrate the date Marty McFly landed in the future in Back to the Future Part 2. In fact, its directly advertising the shiny new Blu-Ray collection of the entire trilogy. Unfortunately, it’s not available in Holomax. Recapping the entire (fictional) Jaws saga in hilarious detail, as well as taking potshots at sequel trends from the last few decades, you can watch the trailer below. »

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, »
This time, it's really, really personal. In a few weeks it'll be the actual date that Marty McFly reached when he traveled far into the future in Back to the Future II. This one is fact-checked (unlike the bogus social media meme) and the official date of arrival is October 21st, 2015. Everyone is scrambling to actual make the items featured in that future, including the hoverboard. Pepsi has just announced they're making and actually selling "Pepsi Perfect", which was seen in the movie. And to join in on the fun, Universal made a trailer for Max Spielberg's Jaws 19, one of the many sequels playing in the future. Both companies made short joke trailers, with a bookend reminder of the new Blu-ray release also hitting on October 21st. Enjoy! Here's the fun trailer for Max Spielberg's Jaws 19, originally teased in Bttf II, now on YouTube today: And here's the »

Pepsi has announced that it is set to release a new limited edition bottle on October 21st that ties in with the "Back to the Future" franchise.
In "Back to the Future Part 2," Michael J. Fox's Marty McFly travels to the future - specifically October 21st 2015 - where he encounters hoverboards, automatic lace-up shoes, hovercars, and in one scene a distinct looking bottle of 'Pepsi Perfect'.
Now, the company has created a limited edition collectible replica of that bottle - or more specifically just 6,500 bottles featuring that design. Those who want one will have to fork out $20.15 for the bottle which will be sold online - specifics of where have not yet been revealed. Pepsi will also be distributing 1,500 Pepsi Perfect bottles ahead of its general release during New York Comic Con this week.

Zemeckis is currently promoting The Walk, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception) as Philippe Petit – the tightrope walker who famously walked between the two towers of the World Trade Center and was the subject of Oscar-winning documentary Man On Wire. The film’s vertiginous climax has reportedly caused vomiting in some audiences, but Zemeckis described the claims as “bullshit” adding “do you think that’s actually true?”.
The Walk has been marketed heavily on the basis of its 3D screenings, continuing Zemeckis’ love affair with the technology despite high-profile flops like Mars Needs Moms, on which he was a producer. “A 3D movie works great if you design it from the »

Coinciding with the 30th anniversary of the "Back to the Future" series, Pepsi is getting in on the marketing game by actually producing its fictional product, Pepsi Perfect, from "Back to the Future Part II."
The drink, which Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) purchases for $50 at the Cafe '80s when he travels to the year 2015, will be priced at $20.15 and only be available in a limited run of 6,500 bottles to be sold online. It will be the same shape and feature the same logo as the bottle that Marty drinks in the flick, though Pepsi notes that it will feature the formula found in Pepsi Made with Real Sugar, a variety that is available now.
"Fans have always been a little crazy about it," said Lou Arbetter, PepsiCo's senior director of marketing, in a statement about the drink. "So we wanted to take advantage of the fact that Marty traveled to the future, »

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 »

You know that scene in Back to the Future when Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) shocks all the kids at the dance with some rock and roll from the future? Imagine that scene, except with Miley Cyrus rapping and twerking, and you've got one of the funniest sketches from Saturday Night Live's season premiere. We knew from Cyrus's promos that the host would provide plenty of scandalous moments, but this is actually hilarious. Take a look to see new cast member Jon Rudnitsky acting terrified of Cyrus's proposition. »

Now in his fifth decade of movie-making, you might assume that Robert Zemeckis’ stature as a director would make it easy to attract funding for a new project. Not so. His latest feature, The Walk, took a decade to get to cinemas, a decade during which multiple investors passed on a film they didn’t see as slotting in to a tried and tested category. Based on the true story of Philippe Petit’s 1974 high-wire walk between the twin towers of the World Trade Center, you can see their point. Part salute to the ineffable act of artistic creation, part theme park attraction, The Walk doesn’t pigeonhole easily. But then, Zemeckis’ films rarely do.
The enforced wait turned out to be fortuitous. In that ten years, digital and 3D technology »
For his latest trick he's retelling the story of Philippe Petit's astonishing tightrope walk between New York's Twin Towers in The Walk, pulling the audience 1,300 feet into the air for a dizzying 3D high-wire stunt alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Digital Spy caught up with Zemeckis for a wide-ranging chat about vertigo sufferers (allegedly) throwing up after seeing The Walk, his scepticism about Vr crossing into filmmaking and why Back to the Future 4 will never happen.
When did you know this was a movie you wanted to make?
"I came across Philippe's story when I saw a children's book called The Man Who Walked Between the Towers, it had beautiful illustrations of his adventure. That was it. I just thought, 'Oh my god!' Then I »
