The director of the 1985 classic and its two sequels would veto any attempt to reboot the original, according to a new interview.
Despite our current mania for ‘80s reboots, it seems that there’s one classic movie from that golden decade that won’t be getting a new lease of life on the big screen. Director Robert Zemeckis has insisted that he would block any attempt to remake his 1985 blockbuster Back To The Future if such an idea were ever floated.
The 63 year old spoke to The Telegraph’s movie reviewer Robbie Collin on Monday (June 29th), and admitted that, while such a reboot would undoubtedly be extremely lucrative, it would only happen over his dead body. Quite literally, as it happens, as the original contracts with Universal and Amblin for the first movie states that Zemeckis and his co-writer Bob Gale have control over any BTTF movies until their deaths.

3D technology might be a reality, but where are those hover boards?
Back in 1989, Marty McFly and Doc Brown made some bold predictions about how the future might look in 2015. In the hit film, starring Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd, the pair travelled to our current year to prevent Marty's future son from ending up in jail. But now as we begin to settle into the New Year it’s time to investigate, just how much did Back to the Future Part II get right about life in 2015?
Back to the Future, an accurate representation of modern life?
Well surprisingly the film did manage to get a few things right about life in 2015. While the movie’s predictions might not have been 100% accurate, there’s still enough there that nearly hit the mark. One of the best examples is the film’s depiction of video calls, something which is now a reality for everyone, thanks to programs such as Skype and Face Time.

Better luck next time, Secret Cinema fans.
Yesterday was a bad day for the hipsters, as Back to the Future fans were kept waiting for an announcement about the Secret Cinema screening in London that never happened.

Neil Patrick Harris looked as natural in drag at the Tony Awards as he does in a suit and tie. He's not the only actor who's donned drag for a role and never looked back.
So, Neil Patrick Harris basically won the Tonys 2014 (the whole thing) with his performance of "Sugar Daddy" from Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Harris has been making headlines as the lead in the Broadway show since he joined the cast earlier this year. He’s not the first actor to don drag for a role, these other actors have all dressed up like the fairer sex for performances in the past.

The show, which has aired since September 2013 on NBC, has seen declining ratings. The premiere on 26th September 2013 attracted a large audience of approximately 5.2 million viewers, primarily owing to Fox's return to a sitcom after a 14 year break from series television.

There were seemingly already grumblings from the network executives about the relatively small audiences, as NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt told the same website: "I love the show but would have hoped for a larger audience."
