One of the most iconic parts of Back to the Future is the time traveling DeLorean. But, in earlier versions of the story, the DeLorean was nowhere to be found. Originally, Marty McFly was going to back to the 1950s in a refrigerator! And, instead of being powered by plutonium, it was powered by a nuclear explosion and Coca-Cola. Get ready for even more facts from the future in the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies!
It's almost surprising at this point that there has not been a 'Back to the Future' reboot or sequel. When you look back at the popular and successful properties of the 80s, there are few that haven't been modernized. Sony is practically falling all over themselves to get a new 'Ghostbusters' in theaters. This year alone saw new 'RoboCop,' 'Muppets,' 'Ninja Turtles,' 'Jump Street' and 'Transformers' movies. But, despite the frequency of these remakes, it doesn't look like you'll ever see a new 'Back to the Future' movie. And, that's a pretty great thing.
Though not entirely surprising given NBC's earlier move to cancel struggling freshman Thursday comedy 'Sean Saves the World,' the network has officially pulled the plug on its more high-profile 'Michael J. Fox Show.' The veteran 'Family Ties' and 'Back to the Future' star had completed work on the 22-episode order, though the remaining episodes may never see the light of day.
