    Quoted from J85M:

    Yep, I contacted the guy who is the head consultant for FOX on all BTTF merchandising and licensing a couple months back, very cool guy super passionate about the franchise and he even owns a DE BTTF, at that time (unless of course he was playing coy) no pinball company looking at licensing had come across his desk.

    Fox didn't make BTTF.

    Quoted from J85M:

    That’s a mistake on my part typed that’s message up at half 1 in the morning, half asleep after watching Predator FOX was in my mind.
    Ignoring my typo though, REAL NEWS!

    Personally I feel BTTF is super dated and should be remade. (the movie not the pin!)

    It was a movie about the differences (or lack thereof) between generations and now a generation has passed since its release. We've become nostalgic for a movie about nostalgia.

    Can you imagine a modern day teen trying to navigate 1985? Much better fish out of water story than 85-55.

    Quoted from Sinestro:

    I’ve mentioned this before on Pinside. Everything would click, even the “Who’s President” line.
    And I hate remakes.....but this one would make sense.

    They could even improve it! Maybe have Marty actually develop as a character! In the present he or she is shy and meet and can't get the attention of a person they like. Then - thanks to their 80's adventures - they learn what it really means to socialize. They return to present and walk right up to the person and ask them out.

    Doc could be like a maker type dude and yeah, maybe his intention is to go back to 1998 and buy Apple stock. The terrorist angle wouldn't work (or be allowed) anymore so there's the trick of how does Marty ACCIDENTALLY go back in time which is the brilliant screenwriting trick of the original.

    What was brilliant in the original was Marty didn't INTEND to time travel it was a consequence of outrunning the Libyans. What's even smarter is Doc STILL does the experiment even after learning he'll be shot, so he wears a bullet proof vest so Marty STILL gets scared and goes back in time to warn him, thus avoiding a paradox.

    BTTF is one of the tightest time travel movies ever. BUT... yes.... still could be a good remake.

    Quoted from o-din:

    How about the Fast and Furious franchise?

    Teenage boys don't buy 6k toys.

    Quoted from ralphcousman:

    True they buy 40k civics.

    Well their parents buy them.

    F&F is a demographic mistake for pinball just like WWE. Plus Mustang was considered a failure so nobody is going to give it a chance anyway.
