In honor of the milestone anniversary, Mondo is letting fans celebrate with a collection of new goodies in honor of the film directed by Robert Zemeckis and starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, and we have an exclusive first look at the offerings.
On Wednesday, July 1, Mondo will be releasing a new Back to the Future poster with artwork by Adam Simpson, a puzzle of Laurent Durieux‘s coveted artwork inspired by the original movie, and three new enamel pins of some familiar items from Back to the Future Part II. Read More »

In Back to the Future Part II, there’s a subplot in which Michael J. Fox’s Marty McFly travels to an alternate version of the future which is bleak and terrible. It’s easy to imagine that we’re currently living in a worse version of that timeline in the real world, but while things are pretty dire right now, there’s a small ray of light, too.
Yesterday, a fan-made remake of Back to the Future Part II premiered on YouTube. It’s called Project 88 – Back to the Future Too, and more than 300 people across nine countries contributed to the DIY remake while abiding by social distancing and quarantine guidelines that were in place due to the coronavirus. So make sure your time circuits are on and your flux capacitor is fluxing, and let the creativity on display in this remake put a smile on your face. Read More »

Along with some new collectible figures inspired by the first movie, we’ll finally get some more Funko POPs from Back to the Future Part II. Check them out below. Read More »
There are countless art prints for Back to the Future out there in the world, many of them for the original movie that introduced us to Marty McFly, Doc Brown and the time traveling DeLorean. But as a fan of the whole trilogy from director Robert Zemeckis, what I really like is when an artist creates a set of posters that represents the entire franchise with unifying imagery. Artist Andy Fairhurst has teamed up with Bottleneck Gallery for a new Back to the Future trilogy print set that satisfies all of that criteria. See it below! Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Anyone who is a fan of the Back the Future trilogy knows that there are plenty of visual and narrative parallels shared between the three films. One of the most obvious examples is when Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) walks into the town square of Hill Valley. Throughout the course of the film franchise, Marty enters three versions of his hometown that are very different from the one he’s used to early in the first film.
A new video essay takes footage from these sequences in Back to the Future and compares all five versions of Hill Valley side-by-side. The parallels aren’t anything new, but there is something very cool about seeing the footage compared side-by-side so you can see just how similar the Hill Valley sequences are.
