project almanacTime travel is best left to the young… or so it seems if you’ve seen any movies. Kids who’ve barely gotten their driver’s license often seem to end up trapped in history trying to change things or put them back, depending on what kind of mess they’ve gotten themselves into.

So with that in mind, below is a list of our favorite teen-centric time travel movies in no particular order. Here you’ll find teenage slackers, robots, and of course everyone’s favorite DeLorean.

Back To The Future: Watch This Awkward, Offensive Deleted Scene

It’s entirely possible that you’ve already seen this deleted scene from Back to the Future. This embed has been around for a few years, and apparently this clip has been around even longer (I guess a pretty obvious statement, isn’t it?), but we’ve somehow managed to never see it, so it’s new to us and maybe it will be to some of you as well. And to top it all off, it’s super awkward and uncomfortable, which makes it even better. Take a look for yourself below.

Nike Aims To Give Those Back To The Future Shoes A 2015 Release

Nike Air MAG2015 is the year that Marty McFly jumps to in Back to the Future 2, so I hope you’re ready for 12 months worth of jokes about how we don’t have hoverboards yet (they still have until October, but it doesn’t seem too likely). But there is one potential invention that we could see before too long, as according to Nike, 2015 will be the year we finally get those sweet kicks, the Nike Air MAGs, you know, the awesome high-tops with the power laces.

There have been some knock offs floating around over the years, but these are going to be the real deal, and apparently the shoe design brain trust at the manufacturer has been devoting a significant amount of time to working on this. One of the biggest problems they’ve encountered is how to power those power laces, especially because they don’t want to have to add a bulky battery pack.

Back To The Future Was Never Supposed To Have A Sequel, And Here’s Why

BTTFendingI remember how amazing the ending of the original Back to the Future was back in good old 1985. Not only had we just sat through a thrilling and hilarious film that felt like an instant classic, but then Doc shows up in a crazy outfit, telling Marty and Jennifer they’ve got to go deal with their kids. In the future. In a goddamn flying car. It was like writer/director Robert Zemeckis leaned in and said, “You liked that, did you? Well, check this shit out!” But it turns out that unforgettable closing scene wasn’t actually intended to set up a sequel at all.

With Back to the Future 2’s target future of 2015 only a month away, the folks at Uproxx decided to dig into the history of the franchise, including the fact that BTTF was never intended as a franchise starter. Speaking to Empire Magazine way back in 2010, Zemeckis said:

We’d never designed the first Back to the Future to have a sequel. The flying car at the end was a joke, a great payoff. We thought this would be really hard to unravel and do again. But when you make a movie that’s as successful as Back to the Future, it becomes this piece of corporate real estate. It becomes bigger than you as a filmmaker. You’re basically given a decision: we’re making a sequel, do you want to be involved in it or not?

This Amazing Back To The Future Screening Will Make You Insanely Jealous

We’ve written about Secret Cinema’s special public screenings of Back to the Future a couple of times this year, about how they’re supposed to be amazing, and how they’re bringing the show stateside in 2015. They sounded cool, but we all like to go see screenings of our favorite film, so our reaction was along the lines of, “Oh, that could be fun, but we’re not super excited about it.” Yeah, that was until we saw this video of the event, and holy crap, this is way more than just watching the movie outside, this is an entire immersive experience, and it look super badass.

This is a collection of footage from the Back to the Future screenings held at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London last summer from July through August, and it looks incredible. You don’t see anything here that we haven’t already read about, but witnessing it in action, even in a YouTube video, gives you a sense of the true scope and scale of this event. You start to understand exactly how these screenings helped the movie jump back into the box office top ten almost 30 years after its original theatrical release. An event like this is worth ponying up for.
