By Ryan Parker, The Hollywood Reporter The Chicago Cubs’ lousy luck made for a great gag in Back to the Future: Part II, one that screenwriter Bob Gale always loved. But now thing’s have changed and that’s OK, he says. On Wednesday night, the Cubs won their first World Series title since 1908, only one year off from the 2015 victory Gale and Back to the Future director Robert Zemeckis predicted in their 1989 time-traveling sequel, starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd. ...

Today’s celebration of #BacktoFutureDay has been all about Back to the Future Part II and the crazy predictions it imagined by the year 2015: hoverboards, Jaws 19, a Chicago Cubs World Series win, etc. But let’s flash back, for a moment, to the original Back to the Future — specifically, the scene in which Marty McFly (Matthew J.

By Alyssa Fiske As anyone who has seen Back to the Future knows, Biff Tannen is one bad dude.

In the new book We Don’t Need Roads: The Making of the Back to the Future Trilogy, we finally found out why Eric Stoltz got fired from the Marty McFly role during production. Michael J.
