If there’s one thing to be thankful for this weekend besides friends, family and that new Star Wars: The Force Awakens extended TV spot that arrived yesterday, it’s the potential return of one of the most wonderful drinks from the late 80s and early 90s.
Even for kids who were inexplicably not fans of Ghostbusters in the 90s, the Hi-C juice flavor Ecto-Cooler was a staple in lunchboxes and sleepovers, featuring Slimer on the box as the drink’s mascot. It was all the rage from when The Real Ghostbusters series started and lasted well past the cancellation of the animated series. But it’s been gone for years. However, there might be hope of a comeback as Coca-Cola just recently re-registered the trademark for Ecto-Cooler back in September. Read More »

While fans were clamoring to get their hands on Pepsi Perfect and witnessing history being made with the first pair of power-lace shoes from Nike, the more hardcore Back to the Future fans were in California at the five-day 30th anniversary celebration We’re Going Back. With screenings, reenactments, location visits and more, this was the place to be.
But tickets were also expensive as hell, and if you’re like me, you just couldn’t afford to fly over to California to enjoy the festivities (though I did get to experience Back to the Future live in concert on October 21st). However, you can now kinda pretend that you attended We’re Going Back with some quick video recaps of the best stuff from each day of the Back to the Future celebration. Read More »
The steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum have become quite iconic thanks to the famous training montage from the original Best Picture winning boxing drama Rocky. Plenty of tourists have ran up those steps and taken countless pictures there in honor of Sylvester Stallone‘s iconic character Rocky Balboa, and now the city of Philadelphia is honoring the forthcoming franchise spin-off Creed with an honorary, celebratory day.
In addition, you can watch just over five minutes of footage from Creed with seven clips that have been released online as we get closer to the release later this month. Get more details on the honorary day and watch the batch of Creed clips after the jump. Read More »
One of the most iconic scenes from the contemporary holiday classic Home Alone is when young Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) uses the fictional film noir Angels with Filthy Souls to scare the hell out of the Little Nero’s Pizza guy.

Yesterday, one of the cool releases that Back to the Future fans were desperate to get their hands on (in addition to Mondo’s new vinyl set of the entire trilogy soundtrack and a bunch of other goodies) was a bottle of Pepsi Perfect. As announced earlier this month, Pepsi was releasing only 6,500 of the bottles for the entire continental United States. And some of those were given away at New York Comic-Con previously, so it was always going to be a mad rush to get them.
However, when the time came for fans to actually pick up a Pepsi perfect for $20.15 on Amazon (or $19.85 on Wal-Mart.com), it was even more difficult to get than initially believed, causing quite the outrage on social media. But since Pepsi is a merciful soda pop overlord, they’re giving fans another chance to get one, and it sounds like it’s going to be much easier this time to get a Back to the Future Pepsi Perfect.

If you’re a fan of Back to the Future, then you should know that not only does this year mark the 30th anniversary of the original film. However, October 21st, 2015 also marks the exact day and year which Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) traveled to the future, and there’s a whole slew of celebrations and promotions planned throughout the entire month (including some in 2016) and leading up to that red letter day in the history of time travel.
We’ve featured a bunch of Back to the Future events and cool stuff before, but we thought it would be better to round up as much as we can for a definitive guide to Back to the Future anniversary events, memorabilia, promotions and more.
