We were already excited about "The Last Stand" on the principle of a new Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, but when it gets a poster like this, we begin to think we're in for a real treat.
Also, Christopher Lloyd appreciates your "Back to the Future" obsession and Batman gets lost in today's Dailies!
It's hard to believe that it's been 25 years since Marty McFly first hopped in a DeLorean and traveled back in time, 25 years since Doc Brown first screamed "1.21 gigawatts!," 25 years since Marty's mom accidentally tried to put the moves on her own son, and 25 years since "Back to the Future" became a pop-culture phenomenon that spawned two sequels and a deluge of still-quoted one-liners. Ah, but it has... and as proof, the cast and filmmakers gathered in New York City last night to celebrate the release of the "Back to the Future" Trilogy 25th Anniversary Blu-ray Collection.
MTV News was on hand for the red-carpet event and was able to "go back in time" with stars Michael J. Fox, Lea Thompson and Christopher Lloyd, as well as director Robert Zemeckis, all of whom reminisced about their favorite lines and scenes from the movie and the questions they most often get from diehard "BTTF" fans.
"The thing that people ask me about more than anything else is the hoverboard," Fox (a.k.a series hero Marty McFly) said of the flying skateboard he rides in "Back to the Future: Part II." "People want to know where they can get a hoverboard. I don't know. I wish I had a hoverboard because I was hanging from cranes and swung through the courtyard, dangling like a puppet and a hoverboard stapled to my feet." Read More...
In case the just-released footage of Eric Stoltz as the original Marty McFly wasn't enough to get you screaming "1.21 gigawatts!," here's some more "Back to the Future" awesomeness: a newly shot "Back to the Future" teaser trailer starring the man who replaced Stoltz behind the wheel of the time-traveling DeLorean, Michael J. Fox.
The new clip was shot to hype the "Back to the Future" reunion taking place at Spike's 2010 Scream Awards on October 19. Cast members Fox, Lea Thompson (Marty's mom Lorraine) and Elizabeth Shue (Marty's girlfriend Jennifer... from "Back to the Future: Part II" and "Part III," but not the original) will gather on stage to celebrate the original film's 25th anniversary.
The new teaser is basically a shot-for-shot remake of the film's original 1985 trailer... but with one very big difference at the end... which you can check out for yourself. Read More...
For any child of the '80s, "Back to the Future" was a cultural cornerstone in our movie-going development. Few films deliver the excitement, the electricity that Robert Zemeckis' century-spanning magnum opus delivers across its three films. And now it's headed to Blu-ray on October 26, tied to the franchise's 25th anniversary.
We already ran down the collection's bevy of special features, and now Universal has released a brand new trailer to give fans an extra shot of anticipation. Check it out below and don't forget to check back here in October for our first look at the box set.
Great Scott! On this day in 1955 -- in the fiction of "Back to the Future" anyway -- Dr. Emmett Brown (Christopher Lloyd) discovered the secret of time travel. In his own words: "I was standing on the edge of my toilet hanging a clock, the porcelain was wet, I slipped, hit my head on the sink, and when I came to I had a revelation! A vision! A picture in my head! A picture of this!" This? What is this? It's THIS!
In honor of Dr. Brown's momentous discovery, we've decided to celebrate this day with a small image gallery. Click the image above to check out our flipbook, featuring images of the iconic DeLorean time machine and stars Lloyd, Michael J. Fox and Lea Thompson.
Call them "cult classics." "Guilty pleasures." "Comfort movies." We all have a mental rolodex of flicks that may not be terribly popular but, for one reason or another, they resonate in a very special way. Maybe you saw it at the right moment. Maybe you just see gold where everyone else sees feces. Whatever the case, these are the special favorites that you keep stashed away for sick days. Here are some of ours.
The time circuits are on, the flux capacitor is fluxing and I'm gonna take today's Sick Day Stash on a journey through time with the help of "Back to the Future Part III." The movie may be the weakest entry in this venerable trilogy but it's by no means a weak movie. Dare I say it's 1.21 gigawatts of marvelous? Read More...
Trailer spoofs are a dime a dozen but how many star the great Christopher Lloyd terrorizing a gaggle of whiny youths as a demented Willy Wonka?
