We are just a few short months away from that October 2015 date that featured in time-travel classic Back to the Future Part II. The film showed us what people living in the 1980’s thought the world would look like in what, to them, was the future. Sadly, although we don’t have true hoverboards, we do still have a very special occasion to mark.

Way back in the year 1985 Robert Zemeckis, with help from Steven Spielberg, created Back to the Future, a wonderful science fiction movie that featured a time-travelling Delorean. The film captured the imagination of a generation and subsequent generations thanks to its ‘outta time’ feel and tone.

'Back to the Future' Has Big Plans for 30th Anniversary

16 July 2015 3:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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.

Available on Blu-ray & DVD, the Back to the Future 30th Anniversary Trilogy will include all three movies plus a new bonus disc with more two hours of content. Back to the Future: The Complete Animated Series will be »

Peyton Reed interview: Ant-Man, Marvel, Back To The Future

12 July 2015 6:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We chatted to Peyton Reed about Marvel’s tiny blockbuster Ant-Man, and also a little about Back To The Future

This article contains a big spoiler for Fast & Furious 6. There are very, very light Ant-Man spoilers.

When Edgar Wright parted ways with Marvel Studios, eight years into production on Ant-Man, whoever took the job was fated to end up melting under the magnifying glass of scrutiny, with a sun of an angry internet shining down on them. Or something.

The man who took the job was Peyton Reed of Yes Man, Bring It On and Down With Love vintage. Looking at the early reviews, it seems fair to say that he knocked it out of the park, presenting a fun film that blends original action, lots of laughs, and links to the wider Marvel cinematic universe.

We sat down with Mr Reed in a posh hotel room to talk about Ant-Man, »

'Back to the Future' Comic Shows How Marty and Doc First Meet

8 July 2015 3:46 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The beloved classic Back to The Future celebrated its 30th Anniversary last week, and most fans couldn't have asked for a better present than director Robert Zemeckis revealing that a Back to the Future remake will never happen, as long as both he and screenwriter Bob Gale are alive. The director and writer's contracts with Universal gave them all of the rights to the franchise, which Bob Gale is using to create a new comic book series through Idw, which will debut in October. During an interview with Comic Book Resources, Bob Gale revealed that Universal came to him with the idea of putting a comic book together set in the Back to The Future, although this story doesn't revolve around time travel, while answering questions fans have had for the past 30 years.

"They came back to me with some story pitches, but they were overly focused on time travel »

Exclusive: Adorable variant cover of new 'Back to the Future' comic series

8 July 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Set your clocks back to 1982 — that’s where the upcoming “Back to the Future” comic series is taking us. The series, subtitled “Untold Tales and Alternate Timelines” will fill in the blanks of the “Back to the Future” trilogy with stories of characters that fans already know and love. This isn't “Back to the Future Part IV.” The comic's stories will take place before and between the events of the trilogy and in alternate realities. In the first issue, readers will witness the very first meeting of Marty McFly and Doc Brown in 1982. (“Back to the Future” writer-producer Bob Gale has told at least part of this story once before.) The second chapter of that issue jumps back to 1943 and tells the story of how Doc got himself mixed up in the Manhattan Project. That first issue will arrive in comic book shops on October 21, 2015 (the real date Doc and »

See Laurent Durieux's Stunning 2015 Telluride Film Festival Poster

5 July 2015 7:33 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Wow. I have to admit, I kinda love this poster. But maybe that's because I have a deep appreciation and love for the Telluride Film Festival, occurring every Labor Day weekend in the remarkably beautiful town of Telluride, Colorado. This year the festival chose Belgian artist Laurent Durieux as the official poster artist of the 2015 festival, and his design is now out. Durieux is one of my favorite artists already - we've featured his work plenty before on the site (The Godfather: Part I & II, It's a Wonderful Life, or Back to the Future Part II). He really captures the vibe of the charming town, which actually looks like it does on this poster, sans bear (see photo here). If this doesn't make you want to attend this festival, I don't know what else will? Here is Laurent Durieux's art for the 42nd Telluride Film Festival (2015) - direct from »

Back To The Future 2 Almost Included An Old West Scene

The Back to the Future franchise celebrates a milestone birthday today with the 30th anniversary of the first film.s release. Appropriately enough, some interesting food for thought has surfaced about its sequel, revealing a possible alteration in the timeline of movie history. It seems that the already-packed Back to the Future Part II was supposed to have taken the time-bending action to the old west. Back to the Future franchise co-writer/producer Bob Gale provided HitFix some intriguing historical artifacts previously unseen by the public in the form of his early handwritten notes for the then-upcoming sequel. According to the notes, dated April 1, 1986, besides a visit to the future and a revisit to 1955, Marty McFly.s eventual dilemma in 1990.s Back to the Future Part III of being stuck in the old west without gasoline for the DeLorean was actually planned to occur in the second film.

In Defence Of... Back to the Future Part III, one of the best trilogy ends ever

2 July 2015 3:07 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In the run-up to Back to the Future's 30th anniversary on July 3, Digital Spy presents a week of special features celebrating the time-travel classic.

If Back to the Future, with its 30th anniversary this week and much Secret Cinema loving of late, has become one of the most celebrated '80s movies, it's fair to say, ahem, time hasn't been as kind to its second sequel, released at the turn of the '90s.

Back to the Future Part III, wisdom suggests, is where Marty and Doc limped out of their time travels. Filmed at the same time as Back to the Future Part II, and released the following year after a big cinema teaser trailer at the end of the sequel, it's often seen as a cash-in - the original "let's make every franchise a trilogy" misstep.

Just look at those collective review scores: a shabby 55 compared to the first's 86 on Metacritic. »

Terminator Genisys review: “As average as you’ve been expecting’

1 July 2015 1:47 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Terminator Genisys review: Come with me if you want to see a really average movie. The very average fifth film in the series fails to live up to expectations. Terminator Genisys review

Six years on from the mess that was Terminator Salvation comes the fifth movie in the franchise, Terminator Genisys, the film that sees Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to one of his most iconic roles. ‘Genisys’ kicks off with a voice over from the future, and Jai Courtney’s Kyle Reese. It’s post Judgement Day and Jason Clarke‘s John Connor, now in his mid-thirties, is celebrating another victory against the machines and the infamous Skynet. When the human resistance come upon a time machine, they must send Reese back to 1984 to protect Connor’s mother Sarah (Emilia Clarke) from a vicious Terminator, the classic T-800 from the original movie, which of course is played by Arnold. However, Sarah »
