It used to be that licensed games had little to no hope of securing voice actors that were familiar to players. But that has changed dramatically over the years, to the point where it isn’t surprising to see film and TV actors lending their voices to games. But the game Lego Dimensions is still crazy — it’s voice cast is like a jumble of actors who are all hanging out after the stories in a shelf full of DVDs come to life.
This wild ensemble features Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox as their Back to the Future characters; Peter Capaldi and many other Doctor Who actors as their respective characters; the cast of The Lego Movie, with Chris Pratt doing double duty as Owen from Jurassic World; and even a video game crossover, as Ellen McLain shows up as GLaDOS from Portal.
Oh, and Gary Oldman voices the bad guy. What a weird world we live in now. Check out the Lego Dimensions trailer below. Read More »

The time traveling adventure Back to the Future is fun for the whole family, the kind of sci-fi film that studios don’t really make anymore. It’s not overtly made for adults, but it’s not exactly geared towards kids either. It hits a sweet spot right in the middle, and that’s part of what makes it so perfect and timeless (no pun intended).
But what if Robert Zemeckis made an R-rated Back to the Future? YouTube user Andrew Robertson imagines what the film would have been like if it were R-rated, specifically because of vulgar language. After all, Marty McFly is a teenager, and he should be dropping more f-bombs. That’s exactly what happens in Back to the F*ckin Future. Read More »
While there are probably some cinephiles out there who have absorbed nearly everything they can about movies such as Star Wars, Jaws, Indiana Jones or Back to the Future, there are plenty of younger, passionate movie fans who haven’t grown up with the film and may be learning about these classics in-depth for the first time.
That’s why we like to bring a variety of retrospectives and video essays to the front page, in order to enlighten and entertain movie lovers of all ages and experience levels. And today we bring a very well-done 30-minute retrospective that looks at the making of Back to the Future while also reviewing the film and why it’s held in such high esteem.

Just yesterday, we brought news of a new Blu-Ray release for the Back to the Future trilogy, including a set with the entire animated series from the 90s, for the first film’s 30th anniversary. Appropriately, the new Blu-Ray set arrives October 21st, 2015, the same day Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled to the future in Back to the Future Part II.
It turns out that won’t be the only way you can celebrate the classic time travel trilogy, because buried in a press release for the new Blu-Ray set is word that the entire Back to the Future trilogy will also be returning to theaters that same day. And there’s another cool item fans will want to pick up this fall as well.

I guess a lot of people want to see an in-depth documentary on Back to the Future. Not once, but twice, the film called Back in Time has used Kickstarter to raise funds to make a feature-length documentary about the classic time travel trilogy. Both times, the film’s goals were quickly and easily funded. This latest round, which just started last week, happened in a mere few days.
To celebrate, the filmmakers behind this documentary (director Jason Aron, executive producer Louis Krubich and producer Lee Leshen) did two things. They added some really cool new stretch goals and reward levels to their campaign, then spoke exclusively to /Film us about their best memories, so far, in making Back in Time.
Below, read the most memorable moments making the Back to the Future documentary, Back in Time, and read about the stretch goals and rewards on Kickstarter. Read More »

Seth MacFarlane‘s A Million Ways to Die in the West has fun with lots of Western archetypes: the humble farmer, the gun-toting outlaw, the hooker with the heart of gold… the time-traveling mad scientist? Yes, Back to the Future‘s Doc Brown makes a cameo in the new comedy, as you’ll see after the jump.
And of course, MacFarlane isn’t the only one eager to pay homage to the classic trilogy. Elsewhere, Gillian Jacobs spills the details on the Community–Back to the Future crossover that never was. Hit the jump to get the details and watch Doc Brown’s A Million Ways to Die in the West appearance.

Seth MacFarlane might be worth hundreds of millions of dollars, but he’s still a nerd at heart. His works are filled with pop culture references and his latest movie is supposedly no different. While the trailers for A Million Ways To Die In the West haven’t shown many of those trademark MacFarlane references, a new trailer reportedly reveals a major cameo.
Even though this will likely be revealed in the latest trailer (currently seen in theaters with Neighbors), I still consider this a spoiler so proceed with caution. Read More »
