Who Would Win A Race Between Optimus Prime, A Batmobile And A DeLorean?

Video: I don’t know who would win the race between Optimus Prime, the Batmobile and a DeLorean time machine. Probably the DeLorean, since it can travel to the future and win right away, right? This cool stop-motion short by Taiwanese animator Counter656 says otherwise.


This Secret Movie Screening Will Actually Send You Back To The Future

Did you ever dream of visiting the small town in Back to the Future? Well, now might be your chance. A group called Secret Cinema is building a full-scale version of Hill Valley in a secret London location in coming weeks.

A Very Specific List Of Things That Are Ruining My Google Alerts

I love Google Alerts. They’re a great tool for tracking the mention of different things online. I use them less as a way to learn about breaking news and more as a way to discover how people are talking about the future. But there are all kinds of things that are messing them up. Well, messing them up for me specifically.

Back To The Future Remixed Into A Love Song In A Perfect Supercut

Pogo takes sounds from movies and transforms them into new songs. This time he remixed Back to the Future into a song dedicated to all the lovers out there – I love it when they say things like that on the radio.


We're Living In The Future, Just Not The One We Were Promised

Do you remember the movie Back to the Future II and its vision of technology in 2015? Marty and Doc arrived in a world with giant shark holograms for movie adverts, flying cars, hoverboards and massive interactive screens on every surface. The problem is, that’s not where we are going.


Do These Powerlaces Match My Hoverboard?

Hadley Freeman over at The Guardian has declared that Back to the Future is this season’s big fashion trend. Which makes complete sense, right? It’s almost the year 2015 — the very year that Marty visits in the BTTF sequel — so bring on those Nike powerlaces and hoverboard-friendly sneakers! Or not.


Christopher Lloyd Apologises For Lying About Hoverboards

FunnyorDie did a bad thing yesterday. They lied to us about one of the best things ever: hoverboards. You don’t come between geeks and the promise of a floating board from Back To The Future. Now the man who should have known better, Christopher Lloyd — Doc Brown himself — is here to apologise.


Australian Man Selling Marty McFly's Nike's And Hoverboard For $5m
