UPDATE: If you weren’t able to pick up one of these commemorative USA Today issues at your local newsstand, gas station or wherever you buy newspapers, you can still get your hands on it. USA Today is selling the Back to the Future Part II edition of yesterday’s paper for $4.95 plus shipping and tax. Just head over to the newspaper’s online store and snag your copy now. Thanks to Collider for the heads up. Our original story from October 21st, 2015 follows.
We’re not sure if you know this, but we happen to be pretty big fans of Back to the Future here at /Film. Really. It’s okay if you didn’t pick up on that. So today is a special day, a day that will enthrall the initiated and make everyone else grow steadily numb until they quietly curse Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale. It is October 21, 2015, aka, the day Marty McFly and Doc Brown arrived in the future during the opening moments of Back to the Future Part II. But surely you already knew this. You’re on the internet, after all.
However, it’s not just the fans celebrating this 30-years-in-the-making day. USA Today is joining in the fun by recreating the futuristic front page that plays a key role in the film. What was once a prop, a cute little piece of product placement, is now something that you can actually own.
Check out the Back to the Future newspaper for yourself after the jump.

We are living in the golden age of board games.
Really! Whether you realize it or not, the days of Monopoly and Risk are far behind us. Sure, those games still exist, primarily lining the edge of the toy section at your local big box retailer, but there is no reason for you to ever play them again. The “classic” games of the past, the games that seem to inspire so much dread and eye-rolling from so many people, have been supplanted by smart, impeccably constructed, tabletop experiences. From simple party games to massive, complex epics, there is a designer board game for every taste.
There is one thing that unites every board game worth playing. The best games, the ones that stick with you, tell stories. Whether they’re economic simulations themed around managing a medieval farm or tactical experiences that allow you to play general to an army on a battlefield, the great modern game crafts a narrative and throws you into it. You and your allies and opponents are the characters in a narrative. The game may take 30 minutes to play or it may take six hours, but you are participating in group storytelling. This is your tale to tell, and the spaceships and wooden tokens and plastic figures on the board are the elements of your tale of victory and defeat.
Welcome to Cardboard Cinema, a new feature where the lines between movies and board games blur. For the debut excursion into the dual world of film and tabletop fandom, let’s dive into a subject that will inspire a familiarity and fondness in just about everyone. Let’s talk about some Star Wars board games.

While we were busy whining on Twitter about the sad lack of hoverboards and flying cars in the real 2015, Tinker Hatfield was hard at work making sure at least one of Back to the Future Part II‘s predictions came true. The shoe designer promised last year that self-tying Nike Mags would become a reality in 2015, and as of today — Back to the Future Day, in case you some how hadn’t heard — he’s made good on his word.
See Michael J. Fox with the very first pair of Back to the Future sneakers with self tying laces after the jump. Or, if your tastes run a little more retro, find out where you can get 1985 Nike Bruins like the ones Marty McFly sports before he upgrades to the Mags.
Update from Editor Peter Sciretta: After the jump you can now watch Michael J. Fox try on Nike’s self-lacing sneakers for the first time, and then later in the day, demonstrate them on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
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.

Hopefully many of you will be taking a trip back in time and to the future with celebratory screenings of Back to the Future. Whether it’s just Back to the Future Part II or the whole damn trilogy, Back to the Future Day is the perfect time to relive Robert Zemeckis’ classic sci-fi adventure. And now that we’re officially in the future, why not dress in style?
No, we’re not saying you need to wear your pockets inside out, double up on neckties, or get bionic implants (though the latter could be awesome). Instead, why not have your feet do some time traveling with Rock ‘Em Apparel‘s new Back to the Future socks collection? The way I see it, if you’re gonna wear socks, you might as well have some fun with them. Read More »

The holy grail for most movie geeks is J. W. Rinzler’s The Making of Star Wars and Indiana Jones books, which offer in-depth looks at the making of some of the greatest films of all time. But it’s rare for films to get this kind of treatment, which is why it’s so great to see that Michael Klastorin‘s Back to the Future: The Ultimate Visual History does just that.
If you are a Back to the Future fan, this book will blow you away. I’m a hardcore obsessive who thought I knew and saw everything having to do with the film, but almost every other page of this book had a quote or an image that I had never seen before. To help promote the book’s release this week, I thought I’d take a look at the 11 coolest things I found in this book. Hit the jump to go 88mph and see some never-before-seen photos from behind the scenes of Back to the Future. And by the way, you can order the book now on Amazon.
