“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.

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 »
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.

/Film readers, you’ve been recruited. The producer and director of a new Back to the Future documentary, Back in Time, have asked for your help. They’re well into production on a documentary about the history of Back to the Future and the long-lasting effect the film has had on popular culture. However, the twist is the film is being told through the eyes of the film’s third star: The DeLorean.
Director Jason Aron and producers Louis Krubich and Lee Leshen have traveled all over talking to people inspired by the film, many of whom own DeLoreans, and the next up is one of their biggest yet: Doctor Emmet Brown himself, Christopher Lloyd. Aron has created a video specifically for the /Film readers asking for questions they can ask Lloyd. Then, sometime in the future, we’ll be able to post his answers, even if they don’t make it into the final film.
Below, give us your best Christopher Lloyd question in the comments, check out some production stills from Back in Time and read more about the film. Read More »
Back to the Future is one of those films we all have, and continue to make, great memories about.

The film will be 30 years old in 2015 and Jason Aron has just created a Kickstarter to finish a movie celebrating that fact. It’s called Back in Time and it’ll explore the cultural significance of Back to the Future in a very unique way. It’ll use the Delorean automobile as the through line. Check out the trailer below.
