According to Back to the Future Part II, we were supposed to have hoverboards and flying cars by last year. The deadline has come and gone, and while we certainly got a real working hoverboard, flying cars still remain a challenge. The good news is that the next iconic milestone year that has flying cars in the sci-fi realm is 2019, from Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner, so we’ve got three another three years to make it happen.
In the meantime, Ford is looking to a future that has driverless cars, which seems to be the next frontier in automobile technology instead of flying cars. And along with that comes a perfectly American innovative idea from Ford Motor Company: a windshield that turns into a movie screen so you can watch Mad Max: Fury Road while speeding down the highway at 75 miles per hour, or while sitting stuck in bumper to bumper traffic.

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.

UPDATE: An observant reader actually found the Pizza Planet truck exactly in the same place it was found before, but it’s actually much bigger and cooler than we thought. Our original story follows with an update at the end with the new image.
Just yesterday we highlighted a still from The Good Dinosaur featuring a famous Pixar Animation Easter egg that you may never have noticed or even thought was possible to easily include in the movie that takes place during prehistoric times. It was the inclusion of A113, the room that many Pixar filmmakers worked in while at Cal Arts. And now one more seemingly impossible Easter egg may have been unveiled thanks to a keen-eyed viewer: the Pizza Planet truck. Read More »
If you’re a fan of Pixar Animation, you know that the animators and filmmakers love including little easter eggs for fans to find. Whether it’s characters appearing in each other’s movies, the Pizza Planet truck or the bouncy ball with the red star, there’s always goodies to find in a Pixar movie. However, it was quite the challenge to include many of them among The Good Dinosaur easter eggs due to the film’s prehistoric setting with a lack of technology and encompassing nature. But we now know how Pixar fit in one of their most famous easter eggs into the film. Read More »
