‘Back to the Future’ is Crossing Over With ‘Transformers’ With a New Toy and Comic Miniseries

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.

‘Back to the Future’ Writer Explains Away a Long-Standing Issue Fans Have Questioned Over the Years

The original Back to the Future is largely considered to be a perfect movie. It’s a tight, clever, and fun screenplay that pays off everything it sets up in a very satisfying way, and Robert Zemeckis directed and co-wrote the hell out of it with Bob Gale. However, there’s one long-standing question that fans have pondered over the years, and after Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn called attention to it recently, Bob Gale himself explained the “problem” away. If you’ve been on Twitt...

‘Back to the Future Too’: Watch This Fan-Made Remake Created Entirely in Quarantine by 300 People Across Nine Countries

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.

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...

Beverly Hills Rambo

Did you know that Eddie Murphy wasn’t the original choice the play the character of Axel Foley in the movie Beverly Hills Cop? That role was actually given to Sylvester Stallone, but he couldn’t get some of the comedic elements right, so Eddie Murphy was brought in to replace him. And did you know that Clint Eastwood wasn’t going to be the original Dirty Harry? Frank Sinatra was set to play that role. Unfortunately Sinatra broke his wrist and couldn’t lift the gun, so the role went to Eastwoo...

The Best Train Travel Hacks Revealed

The Creation Of The Stereotypical Arab

Robert Entman, professor of media and public affairs, published an excellent study in  1993 in which he explained the inner workings of framing. Framing is a well-known concept within communication sciences and the study of mass communication, and concerns according to Entman both selection and promotion. He describes it as: “The selection of some aspects of a perceived reality to make them more salient in a communicating text, in such a way as to promote a particular problem definition, causal ...

MozCon 2019: Acceptance. Education. Donuts

Posted by PJ_HowlandWe’re digital marketers; we make our living in a constantly changing (and consistently misunderstood) industry. It’s easy to feel like even those who are closest to us don’t really get what we do. Take me, for example, I once mentioned algorithms to my grandmother, and ever since then, she’s been absolutely (and adamantly) sure that I work with clocks. Did she think I said analog? But despite the dynamic nature of marketing, Moz has always been a solid rock at the center of ...

‘Karate Kid,’ ‘Fast Times … ‘: A tour of San Fernando Valley film and TV locations spans the classics

That the San Fernando Valley has been the backdrop for “E.T,” “Clueless” and “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” isn’t surprising. What’s less obvious is just how many TV shows and movies have used Valley locations – schools, intersections, liquor stores, apartment buildings, tree-lined streets, restaurants, alleyways – and made these places familiar around the world. That the San Fernando Valley has been the backdrop for “E.T,” “Clueless” and “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” isn’t surprising. What...

VOTD: New Found Glory and Weezer Recreate ‘Back to the Future’ and ‘Mister Rogers’ in New Music Videos

Ever since Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” came along, music videos have often tried to weave a narrative into some kind of short film set to the music in question. But sometimes, music videos just take cues from movies and TV shows to create something that merely captures a certain vibe and aesthetic for the hell of it. And that’s exactly what New Found Glory and Weezer have done in a pair of new music videos that are modeled after Back to the Future and Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. New Found ...

Why Will Smith Turned Down ‘The Matrix’

It’s a well-known piece of film trivia that Will Smith turned down The Matrix. It’s up there on the list of other famous almost-casts: Molly Ringwald could have been in Pretty Woman, Eric Stoltz was Marty McFly for a few weeks of filming. But Smith missing out on the role of Neo in The Matrix always seemed especially tragic considering he turned it down to star in the biggest bomb of his early career, Wild Wild West. “I’m not proud of it,” Smith said of the Western comedy in the latest entry of...

James Bond and Oompa Loompas take slot players into different worlds at Southern California casinos

The chimes and clangs of slot machines greet all patrons on a casino floor, but it’s becoming more likely that they’ll hear some familiar pop culture references, too, whether it’s James Bond’s quippy one-liners or a chorus of Oompa Loompas dishing out sweets and bonuses. Pop culture slots are not new to the gaming world, but plenty of movies are getting new life not as Netflix reboots, but as high-tech slot machines with plenty of bells and whistles and video clips featured in the gameplay.

Nike will sell much cheaper self-lacing shoes next year

Good news for the fashion forward and lazy alike — Nike is bringing back its self-lacing sneakers for another go. And this time they’re going to be significantly cheaper.

See Classic Japanese Woodblocks Brought Surreally to Life as Animated GIFs

Much of the image we have of life in Japan in the 17th through the 19th century, we have because of woodblock prints, or specifically ukiyo-e, or "pictures of the floating world," which vividly capture a great variety of scenes and the people who inhabited them. The once-closed-off Japan has changed a great deal since that era, on most levels even more so than other countries, and the artistic portrayals of Japanese life have also multiplied enormously. Yet even in the 21st century, ukiyo-e con...
