October 21st 2015 is quickly approaching and we don’t have flying cars or hoverboards, but some of the Back to the Future 2 predictions are beginning to come into reality. Earlier today we told you that Pepsi was going to produce a limited number of Pepsi Perfect bottles, and a Jaws 19 trailer was released by Universal Pictures. While companies like Lexus are trying to produce a real hoverboard, we’re still a ways away from the floating skateboards promised in the Robert Zemeckis-directed sequel.

Also, while we may have to wait a few years for a hoverboard like we saw in the movie, Madrid and Valterra are teaming to release special 30th anniversary officially licensed limited edition skateboards based on the hoverboard designs seen in the film. Hit the jump for more details.
