Stranger Things 3 hasn’t even begun filming, and already we’re getting an early preview. Showrunners confirm new details of the third season, including a Future-istic 1985 setting, young love going strong and more of everyone’s favorite father figure: Steve.
Back to the Future Part II imagined a future of magical technology. Home energy reactors. Flying cars. Pizza rehydrators. Fax machines in people’s bathrooms. None of these things have come true. But all anyone really seems to care about are Marty McFly’s goddamn self-lacing sneakers.
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.
Today marks the future my friends. October 21st, 2015 is the date in the future Marty and Doc went to in the movie "Back To The Future 2". We've all spent a good amount of time talking about the things we have now that were predicted in the movie back in 1985. Now, let's take a fun look back at some things we had then, when the movie originally came out.
Today, October 21, 2015, is the so-called #FutureDay, the day in the future that Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled to in Back to the Future II. There’ll be a lot of celebrating and commemorating that day today (this year also is the 30th anniversary of the original Back to the Future opening in theaters), and here’s something pretty neat: Doc Brown’s original van is parked outside the real Twin Pines Mall for fans to visit and take pictures with.
As any movie fan worth their salt will undoubtedly recall, Back to the Future Part II imagined a timeline in which we had hoverboards, automatic lace-up sneakers, futuristic Pepsi (more on that here), and…Jaws 19. Robert Zemeckis’ time-traveling sequel was almost eerily prescient in its imagining of the future of blockbuster franchises, and now there’s an official trailer for Jaws 19 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of one of the best film franchises in history.
Later this month, on October 21, 2015 to be exact, marks the day that Marty McFly and Doc Brown travel to in the future in Back to the Future II. 2015 also marks the 30th anniversary of the original Back to the Future film opening in theaters. As you might expect, Back to the Future fever has hit a fever pitch and there will be lots of ways fans can commemorate the occasion, including buying yourself a “Pepsi Perfect” in a limited edition futuristic bottle, just like the one Marty buys in the future.
