The Walk Early Buzz

The New York Film Festival is in full swing, and this past weekend brought the premiere of Robert Zemeckis‘ drama The Walk, a narrative chronicle of the real life stunt featured in the documentary Man on Wire, where French high wire artist Philippe Petit walked across a high wire placed between the Twin Towers in 1974.

Now that the film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been seen, some of The Walk early buzz has hit the web, and at the very least, it sounds like there’s plenty of suspense and thrills to be found, even if the move as a whole seems to stumble a bit here and there. Read More »

The Walk IMAX trailer

Robert Zemeckis‘ The Walk is the kind of movie that demands to be seen in IMAX 3D, or at least the kind of movie Sony would like you to think demands to be seen in IMAX 3D. So the studio has just issued a nearly five-minute IMAX trailer to convince you that those pesky surcharges will be totally worth it.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as Philippe Petit, a French high-wire artist who in 1974 attempted to walk between New York’s Twin Towers on a tightrope strung between the two buildings. Needless to say, it looks like an intense experience. Watch The Walk IMAX trailer after the jump.

Back to the Future Day

There’s a whole Back to the Future day coming up next month, on October 21st, 2015. As fans of the time traveling franchise will tell you, that’s an important date in the movies as it’s the exact day and year that Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) travel to in the future in Back to the Future Part II.

Soon that date will no longer be in the future, and fans will celebrate our arrival on this date in the real world with a whole slew of Back to the Future celebrations and memorabilia. There’s going to be a lot happening on October 21st, 2015, and Back to the Future writer Bob Gale has a guide to a bunch of Back to the Future day events to attend and items to get your hands on.

Back in Time trailer

Doc Brown doesn’t drive a f*cking Mustang.” That’s just one of the great tidbits that comes to light in Back in Time, a new documentary that takes a nostalgic look at the classic time travel adventure Back to the Future.

With almost all the talking heads you could ever want, this documentary chronicles the inception of Back to the Future, from writer Bob Gale‘s thoughts of what it would be like if he went to high school with his father, talks about how the iconic DeLorean time machine came to be (and was almost a refrigerator or a Ford Mustang), and looks at the enduring legacy of the film franchise.

R-rated Back to the Future

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 »

Back to the Future props

Getting ahold of authentic movie props is no easy feat, though it’s infinitely easier to get your hands on items from your favorite movie sets if you’ve got a truckload of extra cash lying around. Or in this case, if you’re the writer of a certain iconic movie franchise.

Writer Bob Gale is responsible for scripting and producing Robert Zemeckis‘ iconic time traveling trilogy Back to the Future, so it should come as no surprise that he has some of the most coveted props from the series of films starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd. Trust me when I say that he has the key Back to the Future props that you would want, or at least the ones that will fit on your shelf. Read More »
