This... is... such a tease. For a second there it really seemed like maybe we could get a hoverboard straight out of 'Back to the Future II' for the holidays this year. Or maybe just buy one at any time to have a "me day," but once that thing flew over water, we knew it was too good to be true.
While we've always wanted to play an unforgettable character in a legendary movie and get showered in adoration, we also realize there's a downside to becoming a celebrity known for one role. As Dave Chappelle attested to with his bit about Mickey Mouse harrassing him at Disney World, it can drive you crazy. For Tom Wilson - aka Biff Tannen - it drove him to create an all-encompassing card that he
While we are years away from hovering over traffic at 88 miles per hour, there's no harm in trying to bring to life one of the greatest creations in movie magic: the flying DeLorean car from 'Back to the Future.' That's exactly what a bunch of hobbyists in icy Russia did.
Twenty-three years ago, as 'Back to the Future, Part II' first hit theaters, kids everywhere got their first look at a toy from the future. It was the Mattel Hoverboard, the skateboard without wheels that uses futuristic technology to float inches above the ground. Rumors swirled in the '80s and '90s that the Hoverboard was real (rumors fueled by director Robert Zemeckis) but, alas, much to the d

Musician/comedian Matt "The Mouth" Mulholland was able to recreate the entire audio track from the famous skateboard chase scene in 'Back to the Future' using only the power of his own voice.
Mulholland voiced the dialogue, the sound effects and the background music from the scene on different tracks and synced them to the video. As you can see (and hear) below, the results are very imp
We recently told you about the Nike Air Mags, the 'Back to the Future 2'-inspired shoes that pay homage to the footwear sported by Michael J. Fox's Marty McFly in the blockbuster sequel.
Now, Nike has confirmed the Mags are real, but good luck getting your hands on a pair: In a 'BTTF'-inspired promo (which featured cameos from Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown, Bill Hader as a shoe store staffer and
When 'Back to the Future 2' premiered way back in 1989, its vision of 2015 was exciting: Marty McFly got to enjoy inventions like the hoverboard and self-lacing sneakers. The hoverboard has yet to fully materialize, but we can at least be excited that Nike might be manufacturing those shoes of the future someday soon.
