back to the future documentary

Back in October of last year, the filmmakers of an upcoming Back to the Future documentary called Back in Time asked for the help of /Film readers. They had just landed a big interview with one of the film’s two co-stars, Christopher Lloyd and wanted a few questions. Things have changed significantly since then. For the better.

Since then, director Jason Aron not only talked to Lloyd, but has spoken to Robert Zemeckis, Michael J. Fox, Lea Thompson, Bob Gale, Alan Silvestri, superfans including Community creator Dan Harmon, The Goldbergs creator Adam Goldberg and more. The list goes on and on.

In short, Back in Time has become a much bigger movie which means, of course, more funding. The documentary is now back on Kickstarter and with it comes a brand new trailer featuring some of those interviews as well as footage of the real life Hoverboard, the Secret Cinema event and almost anything else Back to the Future you can think of. The campaign also brings news the documentary will be released in October 2015, the same time Marty arrived in 2015 in the film.

Force Awakens Trailer 2 Description

Everything in the universe points towards J.J. Abrams and Disney releasing a second trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens fairly soon. Most likely it’ll be at Star Wars Celebration for a legion of fans, then online in the week before Avengers: Age of Ultron. The first trailer, which basically only contained seven shots, was viewed hundreds of millions of times around the world and spawned infinite speculation and visual reference. A new trailer with even more footage and information would probably exceed that.

As the wait continues, a rumored description has now come online. It features new characters, old characters (yes, Luke Han and Leia are in this description), new planets, the full reveal of Kylo Ren’s face and much more. Is this what happens in The Force Awakens trailer 2? Read for yourself and discuss after the jump.

UPDATE: Now, we are hearing from multiple sources this trailer description is fake. There’s more below.

JJ Abrams Star Wars 7 trailer news

The current conversations about Star Wars: The Force Awakens are primarily concerned with two things: spoilers and trailers. Director J.J. Abrams recently admitted some of the spoilers on the Internet are true, just as some really big ones have come online. Meanwhile, everyone else has been patiently waiting for and debating when we’d see our next glimpse of footage. The safe money is on Thursday April 16, when Abrams and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy kick off Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, CA.

In a new interview, Abrams commented on this and offered up very little information. He did say that the conversation about how and when to release information to the fans happens every day. Read the J.J. Abrams Star Wars 7 trailer news below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Warcraft trailer

Director Duncan Jones finished shooting Warcraft almost a year ago. Production wrapped in May of 2014 but the film is not scheduled for release until March 11, 2016. In the meantime, the director and his team are working hard not only on post-production, which includes a lot of performance capture and computer graphics, but marketing. How do you sell the masses on a super-geeky property based on a popular video game which still remains a niche property as far as the mainstream is concerned?

One idea Jones had was to do two separate Warcraft trailers for two of the major factions in the action fantasy adaptation: one for the Horde and one for the Alliance. Whether or not that’ll happen, or when it’ll happen, we don’t yet know. But below, read Jones discuss Warcraft’s marketing and offer an update on the film. Read More »

Magic Mike

Steven Soderbergh‘s Magic Mike was a thoughtful examination of the American Dream, but it was also a glorious celebration of glistening manflesh. While it remains to be seen if the Gregory Jacobs-directed sequel will be the former, the first teaser poster confirms it will definitely be the latter.

The Tatum-tastic poster is just the first stop on the promotional campaign for the Warner Bros. sequel, with the very first first trailer set to hit this week. Check out the Magic Mike XXL poster and get details on the Magic Mike XXL trailer release after the jump.  Read More »

Star Wars 7 trailer characters

Last week, Latino Review ran an article about next trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuting with Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, since you read /Film, you already knew that because we broke that news a month prior. What our friends at Latino Review mentioned that we didn’t though was the trailer would include footage of Han, Luke, Leia and Chewbacca. That was news to us.

You see, the source who tipped us off to the new trailer told us something almost totally different. They said the original trilogy characters would not be featured in the marketing because Lucasfilm wants to keep their specific roles as secret as possible. Plus, with so many new characters, worlds, ships, etc. to sell people on, they don’t want to show too much familiar stuff. They want it to be Star Wars, but a new Star Wars, like the first teaser trailer. Familiar yet different.

Our source never said we wouldn’t see the characters at all. It was just strongly implied they would be in the background. Could this strategy, one we heard about in late November, have changed? Could Disney have decided to put the original trilogy characters in the marketing? Like most things, the truth will most likely be found in the middle. Read More »
