  • East London Transformed For Immersive “Back To The Future” Experience [10 Photos]

    Secret Cinema undertook a huge project when they announced that they would be transforming an area of East London into a replica of Hill Valley for a special total-immersion viewing of the 1985 classic “Back to the Future.” Many thought the group couldn’t pull it off, and when the first week of shows was canceled last week, the naysayers seemed to be right. But last night, with all the problems from last week solved, Stratford’s Olympic Park filled with fans dressed in 50s attire, ready to experience Hill Valley. And the whole production went off without a hitch. 66,000 tickets priced at £53.50, about $90, have sold for the summer showings throughout August. Check out the photos form opening night below and see what you’re missing out on. Unless you’re going, in which case please take us along, too.

  • 21 More Before and After VFX Photos From Classic Movies

    Although movies seem to be increasingly reliant on computer-generated visual effects (did Ryan Reynolds really need a CGI costume in Green Lanter?), chroma-keying with blue or green screens is nothing new. To illustrate the point, we’ve included some classic films that used visual effects for otherwise impossible scenes, like Ghostbusters and Back to the Future, along with newer movies, like The Great Gatsby, where computers are used for every last detail to perfectly convey the director’s vision.

  • Everything Wrong With Back To The Future [Video]

    Cinema Sins ruins your childhood with their video pointing out every mistake in Back to the Future. Many of the “sins” are simple continuity errors that nobody notices anyway, but the ones about time travel are just not fair. When time travel is what propels your entire plot, some holes are to be expected. But varying pens in Geroge’s pocket in one scene? Come on Continuity Supervisor Nancy Hansen, what were you thinking?

  • Back to The Future Hoverboard (18 Days Until Christmas)

    I was just a small lad when Back to the Future 2 hit theaters, but I knew someday I’d be hovering around causing all sorts of hijinks on my hoverboard. Whizzing by robot fruit stands, stealing a few apples as the robot street vender disappeared into the rear view with his robot fist shaking in the air. Alluding Biff and his cronies. Hangin’ with my friends at the hover park, ya know, usual future dreams. Well that day has come. Mattel has released a replica of the infamous hoverboard that skyrocketed the BTTF trilogy from epic to legendary. Too bad it doesn’t actually hover… SMH science.
