Exclusive: Streaming ‘Back to the Future 2′ Comedy Event Saturday With Limited Edition Tim Doyle Poster
Posted on Tuesday, November 1st, 2011 by Germain Lussier
As much as everyone adores the Back to the Future trilogy, it rates pretty high on the unintentional comedy scale. There are flubs, over the top performances and awkward lines of dialogue across all three films making them great to watch with a bunch of friends. This weekend, a special live USTREAM broadcast will let you do just that. It’s called the Secret Show to the Future 2 and it happens at 10 p.m. EST November 5.
In 2008, several members of the Sirius XM’s Opie and Anthony show did the first Secret Show to the Future, where they watched Robert Zemeckis’ 1985 film complete with live comedy commentary in the tradition of Mystery Science Theater 3000. This Saturday brings the sequel. Anthony Cumia of the O&A Show, producer Danny Ross and comedian Joe DeRosa, all huge fans of the films, will watch Back to the Future Part II live and provide an evil genius commentary that simultaneously pays homage to the film while exaggerating its short comings.
But that’s not it. To commemorate this momentous occasion, one of our favorite poster artists, Tim Doyle, has created a very limited edition poster with all proceeds from its sale going towards Michael J. Fox’s Parkinson’s research charity, TeamFox.
An awesome movie with free, hilarious commentary as well as a limited edition poster for charity? That’s heavy. Read more and see the exclusive reveal of the poster after the jump.
The best way to join in for the Secret Show to the Future 2 is to go to secretshowtothefuture.com at 10 p.m. EST on Saturday November 5. That’s where you’ll find the USTREAM feed for the show.
As for the posters, they’ll go on sale at the same time the show starts, 10 p.m. EST at sstff.bigcartel.com. Want to see them? Here’s your exclusive reveal of the regular and Glow in the Dark Variant.
Each poster is 16 x 26. The regular edition is limited to 150 total with 110 unsigned for $50 and 40 signed for $75. The Variant edition is limited to just 50 with 35 unsigned for $100 and 15 signed for $125. These are all screenprinted by Nakatomi and will sell fast so be on sstff.bigcartel.com Saturday night.
I know this sounds like it’s nothing but a bash fest but that’s not the case at all. Cumia, Ross and DeRosa are all huge fans of the BTTF movies and treat them with the utmost respect. But that doesn’t mean they can’t point out some some of the film’s lesser points.
If you’re still a little confused about this whole thing, I’ve embedded the entire first Secret Show to the Future for you to listen to at your leisure. It was hilarious and pointed out many idiotic things I never noticed about Back to the Future.
And, if you miss the show on Saturday night, secretshowtothefuture.com will have it available to watch after. Syncing up the film is optional.
What do you think of the poster? Are you going to listen to the show?
