We’ve entered into the final days of the year 2015 which, as you’re probably aware, is the crazy future year that Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) travel to in the delicious creamy center of the Back to the Future trilogy.
Back in August CineFix shared nine fun facts about the beloved movie franchise for their “Things You (Probably) Didn’t Know” YouTube series as part of the 365-day celebration of our reaching the year in real life. Now with 2016 fast approaching, they’ve decided to dedicate their final installment of the series this year to seven new things about the movies that you might not have known about.
Right now, Amazon is running an amazing deal on the Back to the Future: The Complete AdventuresBlu-ray Edition for only $49.99 (that’s 50% off the list price). The DVD Edition is $44.49.

When Tuesday came and went without a new Honest Trailer from Screen Junkies, I didn’t think too much of it. Now it all makes sense. Back in 1989, Back to the Future Part II sent Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) to the future”¦ October 21, 2015 to be precise. By the time you read this article, that date, the actual date will be the past. 26 years after hoverboards, flying Deloreans, and Grays Sports Almanac became parts of the lexicon of American cinema, we finally get the Back to the Future trilogy Honest Trailer!
Recently we saw an animated short that showed us what it might have looked like had Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled to the real 2015 in the sequel to Back to the Future instead of the much different 2015 that was presented in the movie. The video was more of a depressing reminder of the times we live in than anything.
Now we have an even better version of this scenario. In a very special appearance for Back to the Future Day yesterday, both Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd returned as Marty and Doc for a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live! (with an added bonus cameo by a certain audition judge). And once again, the “future” wasn’t quite what they were expecting.

Back to the Future: The Game The 30th Anniversary Edition
Publisher: Telltale Games
Starring Christopher Lloyd, Tom Wilson, Claudia Wells, A.J. LoCasio
Platform: Playstation 4 | Xbox One
Release date: October 13, 2015
In honor of October 21, 2015, aka “Back to the Future Day,” I decided to check out Back to the Future: The Game, the 30th Anniversary Edition, from Telltale Games. If you haven’t gotten to play this edition yet, then you are in for a treat.
Back to the Future: The Game takes place six months after the events of Back to the Future Part III, where the year is 1986. The Bank in Hill Valley is holding an estate sale for the late Doctor Emmett Brown (voiced by the always talented Christopher Lloyd, reprising his franchise role). Marty McFly (voiced by A.J. LoCasio) shows up and finds out his father George is running the sale. The Delorean shows up without Doc, but with Einstein and a tape recorder. Marty finds out that the Doc (going under the name of Carl Sagan) is accused of arson of a speakeasy in 1931. From there the adventure is delivered in classic Back to the Future fashion.
