Auto Parts Website Offers a ‘Back to the Future’ Flux Capacitor

As an avowed walker and train-taker, I’m not much of a car guy, personally. But I know a thing or two — I can change a flat tire, correctly identify where jumper cables should be clamped, and I know enough that anyone who offers to sell you a ‘flux capacitor’ is having a laugh at your expense. The auto part was imagineered (a make-believe word for ‘invented’ that the folks at Disney originally imagineered) for Back to the Future, the all-important component that gives Marty McFly‘s Delorean the power to traverse time. And now, you too can attempt to flaunt the laws of metaphysics by souping out your ride of choice (imagine how a silent, time-traveling Prius would freak out people in the ’50s) with your very own flux capacitor.

The 2016 ScreenCrush Holiday Gift Guide For the Discerning Pop Culture Fan

Whatever holiday you celebrate in December, it comes with a lot of pressure. If you get that special someone the wrong gift, watch out. Things can get pretty ugly. That’s particularly true for pop-culture fans. They know what they want, and they probably have most of it already. Perhaps you know someone like this. Perhaps you are someone like this. (Perhaps I am someone like this.)

If your Luke Cage binge has ended, there’s only one thing left to do. Okay, eleven things, if you feel compelled to watch ten more times, but we’re talking about the easter egg hunt. There’s plenty overt ones a bit of Iron Fist foreshadowing, but did you know a newspaper clipping puts Back to the Future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

The Last Remaining ‘Back to the Future’ Ride Is Closing

by Matt Singer March 31, 2016 @ 10:44 AM
Back to the Future fans have been blessed with a lot of cool stuff lately; all kinds of sneakers, toys, Blu-rays and other ways to celebrate the recently passed 30th anniversary of their beloved franchise. But it’s now 2016, uncharted waters beyond “the future” of Back to the Future. This is a world without Marty, Doc, and the DeLorean. Appropriately, Kotaku brings us more sad news about our dark future of no flying cars and those fake, crappy hoverboards: The final Back to the Future: The Ride is closing.

Last October, to commemorate the day Marty McFly traveled to in the future in Back to the Future, Part II, Nike and Michael J. Fox officially debuted the Air Mag, the self-lacing sneakers promised to us in the film. At the time, Fox had the only functional pair (he showed them off on Jimmy Kimmel Live) and there was a promise that the technology would become publicly available in 2016. Well, it’s 2016, where are our self-lacing sneakers?! Today, Nike debuted a new video of their self-lacing shoes in action, plus some more details.

How was your Future Day? Did you call anyone a bojo? Get into an altercation with bionically-modified street toughs? Get bummed out that the Cubs won’t actually win the World Series this year? Take out a second loan on your house to afford a down payment on some sneakerrs with power laces?

A ‘Back to the Future’ Producer Wanted to Retitle the Film ’Space Man From Pluto’

In October 1984, when Back to the Future would’ve been in early-development stages, a producer gave a friendly suggestion to remedy one of the biggest flaws in the project. The script was “terrific”, everything was fine, but that title. Wouldn’t something along the lines of Space Man from Pluto have a smoother flow, make more sense to audiences, and convey what the movie’s actually about much more succinctly?

Nike Officially Debuts Self-Lacing ‘Back to the Future’ Sneakers

Just the other day we put together a list of all the Back to the Future II predictions and whether those predictions were accurate or not. Of the Nike Air Mag self-lacing sneakers, we said, “the world is still waiting for the first true pair of power-laced sneakers.” Well, wait no longer. Nike and Michael J. Fox officially revealed the first pair of power-lacing Air Mags today in New York City to commemorate October 21, 2015, the day Marty McFly traveled to in the future.

In news that absolutely in no way connects to Back to the Future, yet overwhelmingly feels designed to coincide with Back to the Future, Lord and Miller will be getting into the time travel game. The Lego Movie pair have begun development on yet another FOX comedy with In Time, in which presumably, at least someone will head back to a future. At some point. I mean, you have to give us that.
