July 3 marked the 35th anniversary of the premiere of Back to the Future, the time travel movie starring Michael J. Fox. With the anniversary, several archival pearl curiosities emerged that hundreds of fans come to find out now. One is linked to another popular movie from the eighties.
Los Gremlins It was a comedy of terror and humor that remained in the memory of many children and adolescents. Released in 1984 -before Back to the Future– was directed by Joe Dante and written by Chris Columbus. Zach Galligan and Phoebe Cates starred in it and Steven Spielberg himself participated in the production. Rare bugs reproduced at speed and caused as much grace as rejection.
What links the characters of Marty McFly and Doc Brown and director Robert Zemeckis with these creatures for many adorable and for other grotesque? The stage used.
Universal’s own producers say that Kingston Falls Square and Hill Valley Square are actually the same set as the studios. The actual name of the square is Courthouse Square, although many call it The Clock Square (from the history of Back to the Future).
Courthouse Square consists of several facades that form an archetypal California city plaza with a Courthouse as the centerpiece. The place was severely damaged by fire several times (1957, 1990 and 2008) and it was successfully rebuilt after each incident.
The plaza was also used to film various scenes from the series Magnum, for series Gilmore Girls, Doctora Quinn, and several dozen other productions.
If you know that Back to the Future it will not have a fourth part. But the flamboyant Gremlins will return to the screen to be a fury between adults and children again. In 1990 it arrived Gremlins 2: the new generation, and now The third film installment is coming. And even a series.
Last January, Chris Columbus, original creator of these strange little creatures, announced that the script for the new movie will have even more grumpy Gremlins. “It is a very twisted and dark script,” he warned.
Warner gave the green light to Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai, an animated series about the franchise that will be seen by HBO Max. An image shared on networks by Bendan Hay, executive producer of the series, unleashed the fury among those who remember those “little animals”. Apparently, this fiction will be seen in 2021.
On the side of Back to the Future, the novelty is a short made by the Playmobil company that causes nostalgia and enthusiasm among fans. This is an advertisement that recreates part of the first scenes of Back To The Future. Marty McFly and the tousled Doc Emmett Brown, plastic and with his DeLorean trying to travel through time.
Also, for Fox fans, there is another important news: the actor will tell in a new book how he lives with Parkinson’s and other health problems. Michael had already edited two texts about his life, but at 59 he decided to delve into his story.
The text will be available from November 17. No Time Like The Future it’s called the book. The previous A Lucky Man (Un hombre afortunado) y Always Looking Up: The Adventures of an Incurable Optimist They were published in 2002 and 2009, respectively.
