In 2015, we were all reminded that about how much fun the Back to the Future franchise is when we celebrated Back to the Future Day. However, 2016 will be the year that we get to see many of the cast members together again. The only catch, you.ll have to be in Northern California next month in order to see it. The San Jose Convention Center will host the first ever Silicon Valley Comic-Con in March, and Entertainment Weekly reports that Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson will all be in attendance at the event. The three will take part in photo ops and autograph sessions, and will also join together to take part in a special "Spotlight on Back to the Future" panel. While both Fox and Lloyd made some appearances together around "Back to the Future Day," Lea Thompson was noticeably absent, and as a key part »

I apologize for not getting this review out sooner. I somehow lost the notes I typed up last night after the show and had to write everything again.
The second part of Legends of Tomorrow Pilot really focused on the impact of time traveling. Throughout the show you can see why the Time Keepers in the first episode refused to give Rip Hunter a time machine to alter time. This episode did a great job showing the impact of altering time with Ray losing a small piece of his suit in a fight which Vandal Savage will reengineer the technology to create a weapon more powerful that a nuclear bomb. The other timeline influence came straight from Back to the Future with Professor Stein interacting with his younger self in order to get a piece of tech to find the piece of Ray’s suit. By Stein interacting with his »

It is said that he who controls the Foundational Elements that this planet is built upon, controls all of the Multiverse.

After a strong first part last week, the second part of Legends of Tomorrow’s series premiere was an impressive follow-up as the Legends crew run into Martin Stein’s younger self when a piece of Atom’s suit accidentally falls off, which could cause major trouble for the future if it gets in the wrong hands. I remember watching Back to the Future for the first time when Marty ran into younger versions of his parents, thinking “this is most hilarious interaction I have ever seen in a time-travel story”. Turns out years later, it would be tied with what happens here as it was a blast to
Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 Episode 1 Review: “Pilot: Part 2” »

Some spoiler-y thoughts on the conclusion of the two-part "Legends of Tomorrow" premiere coming up just as soon as I pick fights with the Plo... You may recall that I wasn't crazy about "Legends" based on this two-parter. There are too many characters thrown together solely because, as Rip himself admitted late in last week's episode, they all had nothing better to do. The tone's all over the place, particularly considering the very big performances most of the actors are joyfully giving, and the Hawks and Vandal Savage — theoretically the center of this whole thing — were by far the weakest characters. Well, this episode at least resolved some of that last problem, at least temporarily, by killing off Hawkman. But since the Hawks' whole schtick is that they always resurrect, and since the series' gimmick involves the team traveling back and forth in time, I'll eat my hat if some »

Stephen Wynne, CEO of the DeLorean Motor Company, announced the plans this week in an interview with the Houston NBC affiliate, near the company's Humble, Texas headquarters. The car, which became famous thanks to its role as the time machine in the "Back to the Future" series, was once synonymous with '80s opulence. But the company went bankrupt in 1982, and since the late '80s has operated purely as a repair and refurbishment outlet, restoring existing models of the vehicle.
The company had been unable to produce new versions of the kitschy car because the design rights were owned by the estate of the vehicle's namesake, the late John DeLorean, and not the company itself. Now, »

If last year’s celebration of Back to the Future and Back to the Future Part II wasn’t enough time travel adventure for you, then 2017 might have something you’ll enjoy, at least if you have between $80,000 and $100,000 lying around. Today The DeLorean Motor Company announced that they will be building new Dmc-12 DeLorean […]

Famed for its innovative design (gull-winged doors!) and use as a time-machine in the classic Back to the Future, the DeLorean Dmc-12 will resume production again after 35 years. The DeLorean Dmc-12 was in the market between 1981-83 and was the only model which Jean DeLorean’s DeLorean Motor Company ever produced. While Dmc was originally based in […]

It may have been four months since Lego Dimensions first released across multiple platforms, but that doesn’t mean the marketing machine is ready to slow down just yet. In a brand new trailer, the Traveller’s Tales team have put together a short teaser of the kind of chaotic fun that can be had when you combine sets within the game.
The aptly named ‘Doctors’ trailer features Dr. Venkman from Ghostbusters™ Doc Brown from Back to the Future, and The Doctor from the long running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. Each of them arrive at an intersection and attempt to let the others pass before them, but when frustration gets the better of them they end up embroiled in a crash that leaves them all rolling about in scattered Lego bricks.
While Dr. Venkman and The Doctor both feature in basic levels with the Lego Dimensions starter pack, »

Last year, Universal Pictures celebrated the 30th Anniversary of Back to The Future with a number of different events, including a brief theatrical re-release, a new Blu-ray trilogy and much more. In conjunction with the huge event, Nike announced that the actual self-lacing sneakers from Back to the Future Part II have finally become a reality, while Pepsi announced that fans can buy limited edition bottles of Pepsi Perfect from the sequel. While the 30th Anniversary festivities have come and gone, we have news from Click2Houston that the DeLorean Motor Company (Dmc) will actually start producing new cars that will be available for fans to buy sometime in 2017.
The DeLorean Motor Company was founded in 1975 by former General Motors executive John DeLorean, who was responsible for designing beloved cars such as the Pontiac Firebird and the Pontiac Gto. Dmc only produced one vehicle, the Dmc-12, and only 9,000 were manufactured »

After upwards of thirty years in film and television, Crispin Hellion Glover remains one of Hollywood’s most enduringly eccentric characters. The erstwhile star of “Back to the Future” has since carved out an admirable and unique niche for himself as the director of boundary-pushing arthouse flicks like “What is it?” where many of the actors were non-professionals afflicted with Down’s Syndrome. What many may not know is that Glover grew up in the heart of Los Angeles, the son of actor Bruce Glover, and that he at one point harbored the same big-screen dreams as so many other Hollywood hopefuls before and after him. Granted, you wouldn’t necessarily get that impression from the bold and provocative public persona Glover has cultivated over the years, but that’s just one of the man’s many fascinating contradictions.

Time travel is such a highly specific subgenre in sci-fi that a few big movies tend to always dominate the conversation. Primer, The Terminator and Back to the Future are the biggest fan favorites and so any time a new time travel movie comes out, those seem to crop back into the conversation as influencers. However, that's not entirely the case with Synchronicity, the new sci-fi mind bender from writer-director Jacob Gentry (The Signal). At least, not as far as Gentry is concerned. Synchronicity hits theaters and on demand tomorrow (that would be January 22, 2016, in case you're reading this from another timeline), so we asked Gentry to tell us what his actual influences were when writing and directing. His answers may actually surprise you, at least if you're...

Maybe it was the buildup toward Back To the Future Day, but time travel became a favorite arena this development season, with some of the top creators and producers — Shawn Ryan & Eric Kripke, Phil Lord & Chris Miller and Kevin Williamson — tackling it with high profile projects. Ryan and Kripke’s drama Time came to market first in August, sparking a bidding war and landing a pilot production commitment at NBC. Williamson’s Time After Time, based on the 1979 novel by Karl… »
The time is now for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
The CW’s timey-wimey Arrow/Flash offshoot debuts this Thursday at 8/7c, as Rip Hunter recruits Sara Lance/White Canary, Ray Palmer/The Atom, Captain Cold and Heat Wave, Firestorm’s Professor Stein and Jax Jackson, and Hawkgirl and Hawkman to find and stop the immortal Vandal Savage from conquering Earth.

The series is an undertaking as sizable as its cast, endeavoring to bring Avengers-style team-ups to the small screen. To buckle »
After months of mouth-watering trailers and backdoor stage-setting, "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" is finally upon us. The series, which pulls characters from "Arrow" and "The Flash" and sets them adrift in time, premieres this Thursday on the CW.
Moviefone recently screened the two-part pilot and -– spoiler alert -– it's tremendously fun.
Understandably, there are a lot of moving parts. Not only must "Legends" introduce a brand new protagonist in time master Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), but the series also has to show him wrangle together a large group of colorful heroes and villains from the CW's other comic book shows. The premiere does a great job of weaving in each new character without ever slowing down the narrative, but there is much to digest.
