Bob's Burgers Quarantine Short

Back to the Future Doc Brown Chia Pet

Though Chia Pets feel like a relic of the 1980s and 1990s, they’ve consistently sold hundreds of thousands of different decorative planters each and every year. More recently, Chia Pets have really started to lean into pop culture themed planters, including Groot, Predator, Dustin from Stranger Things, and even all four of the Golden Girls. Now Back to the Future is following in their footsteps with a Chia Pet modeled after Doc Brown, but it doesn’t feature the likeness of Christopher Lloyd. Read More »

Jon Cryer - Alternate Back to the Future Ending

This week, we learned about a new 35th anniversary box set of Back to the Future that will bring the time traveling trilogy home in 4K for the first time. For those who may feel no immediate urge to purchase yet another edition of the Back to the Future trilogy, this new box set comes with some exciting never-before-seen footage of auditions for the film’s cast. Perhaps most notably, Jon Cryer and Ben Stiller auditioned for Marty McFly, and while the latter would just as soon forget how that audition went, the former recalls a very different script being used at the time.

Back to the Future 4K

The 30th anniversary of Back to the Future took place back in 2015, which somehow feels like it was literal eons ago and only yesterday at the same time. I think it’s because even through multiple generations, Robert Zemeckis‘s time travel comedy has never really left the public consciousness. But to celebrate the film’s 35th anniversary later this year, the entire trilogy is finally getting a 4K release for the first time ever.

And while the new Back to the Future: The Ultimate Trilogy box set repackages plenty of existing bonus features, it also includes over an hour of brand new features, including the casting auditions of then-up-and-coming actors like Ben Stiller and Kyra Sedgwick. Get the details below. Read More »

NECA's Back to the Future Doc Brown Action Figure

When NECA put up their first wave of Back to the Future action figures for pre-order, it included the 1985 version of Marty McFly, a 2015 version when he’s in disguise as his son Marty McFly Jr., and the 1955 version of George McFly’s bully Biff Tannen. The figures looked incredible, but fans were a little disappointed that Christopher Lloyd as Dr. Emmett Brown wasn’t among them. Thankfully, they won’t have to wait too long after that first wave ships to get their hands on the man who made time travel possible, because NECA’s Doc Brown action figure is coming this fall and available for pre-order now.

Back to the Future Transformers Crossover

Just last year, Transformers crossed over with Ghostbusters in the form of a comic book miniseries from IDW. The mash-up of robots and paranormal exterminators also resulted in a new Transformers toy that turned the Ecto-1 into an Aubobot. Now another one of cinema’s most famous vehicles will be getting the same treatment as Back to the Future is getting a Transformers crossover comic miniseries that will see the DeLorean time machine turned into an Autobot too. And yes, of course there’s a toy to go with it. Read More »
