Not only are Alamo Drafthouse theaters known for being spectacular places to see all sorts of great films from today and years past, but they also allow you to toss back a cold one while watching them. And when Richard Linklater‘s latest film, Everybody Wants Some, debuts at SXSW next week, it will be followed in a few weeks by the movie’s own official beer fro Austin Beerworks.
If there’s one movie that deserves to have its own beer, it’s the spiritual sequel to Dazed and Confused, which brings us a story about college life in 1980. But if you’re not of age to drink, or you just hate beer, there’s also a cool new Mondo poster for the movie that has just been unveiled in conjunction with the forthcoming Richard Linklater gallery show.
Find out where and when you can get the Everybody Wants Some beer and see the Mondo poster for the movie below. Read More »
There was a time when Hostess snacks disappeared for awhile, and fans of the unhealthy cream-filled cake known as the Twinkie weren’t sure if they would ever see them on shelves again. Thankfully the snack that will likely survive the apocalypse has been back for awhile, clogging our arteries and giving us diabetes for years to come. And along with the recently confirmed return of Ecto Cooler, the snack cake will be getting an all too appropriate Ghostbusters-themed makeover that includes slime green filling.

Various GPS systems have adopted plenty of famous pop culture voices to deliver audio directions to drivers on the road. You can get directions from character in The Simpsons, Darth Vader, Bert & Ernie, KITT from Knight Rider and more.

Last November, we got word that Coca-Cola had re-registered the trademark for Ecto-Cooler, the Ghostbusters themed juice drink that was popular in the 80s and ’90s. There was no guarantee that the soft drink company would bring back the flavor that Ghostbusters fans have wanted back on shelves for years, but with a new Ghostbutsters movie on the way this summer, a nostalgic cash grab just made sense.
Now we seem to have confirmation of the drink’s impending return, as a sample can has made its way online in an eBay auction. And if you’re skeptical that it might be a fake, there’s a few reasons that it seems to be legitimate. Find out more about Ecto Cooler coming back tomorrow. Read More »

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 »

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.
