Posts tagged back to the future
Another GE commercial that pulls a direct reference from a classic sci-fi movie. Last time it was The Matrix, this time it’s Back to the Future.
I’m kind of into it, mostly because they swapped Hill Valley for New York City, and I’d DEFINITELY watch a Back to the Future movie that takes place in NYC.
My teaser poster for a Back to the Future remake that isn’t happening.
I don’t think it needs a reboot. It could use another few movies in continuity though.
Nike MAG (The Back to the Future II sneakers) - OFFICIAL
They are official. The Back to the Future II shoes (actually called Nike MAG) will go on sale STARTING TODAY. Nice Kicks has ALL of the details. From Nice Kicks:
1500 pairs of the 2011 NIKE MAG will be auctioned on eBay with all net proceeds going directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation. Each day for the duration of the 10-day auction, 150 of the 2011 NIKE MAG shoes will be made available via eBay’s Fashion Vault. The auction starts September 8, 8:30PM PST, and will end September 18.
This is kind of what I feared. They are running only in limited quantities… worse, you have to BID on them. So there goes any shot of me attempting to restrain myself.
[EDIT: I re-read the article. It’s not totally clear if they are ONLY being sold on auction or if they will get a general release. The official Nike press release doesn’t use the word ‘only’ when it says ‘1500 pairs of the 2011 NIKE MAG will be auctioned on eBay’. I can only keep my fingers crossed that these will be made available in stores for a normal civilized price.
Also worth noting they are calling them the “2011 NIKE MAG” implying that they are expecting to make a 2012 version… Just saying.]
On a brighter note. All of the proceeds are going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation. So that’s awesome. That means whatever I spend on these shoes is a tax write-off, right?
HOLY SHIT! GREAT SCOTT!
[EDIT: Presser is tomorrow not today]
There are two chances to see Back to the Future in theaters for it’s 25th anniversary. Saturday, October 23 (12:30pm) and Monday, October 25 (7:00pm). That second one is the day Marty McFly went back in time.
All guests will receive a full-sized poster commemorating the 25th Anniversary limited-release of the movie with their ticket purchase, while supplies last.
Each theatre will also have special movie-related giveaways prior to the movie as a part of the experience. We’re excited to bring this digitally remastered film back for a new generation to see the film as it was intended – up on the big screen.
You should probably order tickets now before you run out of time…
