Doc Brown Is Back From (Or Comes Back To??) The Future For A New...Commercial?!

Published at: Aug. 31, 2011, 9:58 a.m. CST by merrick

 

Merrick here...

A set of videos has been making the rounds, featuring Christopher Lloyd reprising his Doctor Emmett Brown role from the BACK TO THE FUTURE trilogy

Many have pondered whether these videos may represent a viral campaign signifying movement on an oft-rumored BTTF redux - it's actually a spot for Garbarino electronics store in Argentina (the video is featured prominently on the Garbarino site).  NOTE that the originally leaked embed (HERE) did not carry the "VOLVER AL FUTURO" watermark - which might've made the footage a tad more perplexing upon first viewing. 

 

THIS piece at AutoBlog offers a tad more insight into the commercial: 

...the DeLorean used for close-ups in the commercial is one of the actual originals used in the filming of the movie. Look closely, though, and you'll see that the machine used for the stunts is actually an old and heavily disguised Toyota Celica... apparently, nobody was in the least bit interested in damaging such an iconic movie prop.

This behind-the-scenes embed of the shoot clearly shows the cleverly modified Celica discussed by AutoBlog. 

 

There's also "security cam" footage of the incident...

 

It's all kinds of fun to see Lloyd back as Doc Brown, and I suppose we should be at least a little thankful that he's doing this for a commercial instead of a remake/redux/"re-invention" or whatever. 

Thanks to deadhead for an initial e-mail about the videos.

    They should make a commercial with the Doc meeting the Doctor.

    by KilliK

    how awesome,would that have been?

    A fourth film would work

    by RedBull_Werewolf

    Of course Fox wouldn't likely return, but If zemickis and gale came up with an idea strong enough, a fourth film would be great Maybe have doc have to travel back to 1985 for some reason I'd take a sequel or sidequel over a reboot staring justin beiber and tone loc

  • Aug. 31, 2011, 10:15 a.m. CST

    Sad actually...

    by Cinemajerk

    I dunno. Glad to see Lloyd getting work....but an Argentinian commercial? Thats kinda sad. Also Lloyd looked old and slow, which made me feel even sadder. Also reminded me that Fox is fighting parkinsons. You can never go back. Some films should never be remade.

  • Aug. 31, 2011, 10:18 a.m. CST

    Id watch a fourth film

    by sunwukong86

    It could work with either Doc, Clara and their kids as shown at the end of movie 3 or it could work with Marty and Jennifer's kids Michael J Fox could have a cameo in either.

  • You don't remake Back to the Future. Thems the rules.

    Back to the Future

    BTTF will never get remade.

    by Volllllume3

    And thank god for that. But damn man, Loyd looks old as fuck in this commercial. The years have not been kind to the man.

  • but instead of the Michael J Fox Marty,he meets the Eric Stoltz Marty.Both of them are trying to find out what the fuck is going on,until they discover that some evil scientist who was an old jealous antagonist of the Doc has stolen his time-machine blueprints and made his own time-machine. Then he started traveling through time and interfering with the time-line in order to conquer the whole world.But somehow his interference created a paradox where the original time-line,the one with Fox was merged with the time-line of a parallel universe,the one with Stoltz. Doc and the Stoltz Marty are hunting the evil scientist through various time-periods,in order to catch him and repair the damage that he caused in both time-lines. Eventually they manage to do just that,the two-timelines separate,the evil scientist disappears from existence,the Doc farewells the Stoltz and returns back to the original time-line where he finally meets the original Marty. The movie closes with a shot of Michael J Fox as Marty meeting the Doc. How about that?

    by Sorbo1980

    There will NEVER be a BTTF reboot...Here's Why!

    by Shannon Nutt

    In their infinate knowledge, Bob Gale and Bob Zemeckis had it written into their contracts that Universal could NEVER do another sequel without BOTH of them signing off on it, and Bob Gale has said there will never, ever, be another movie...although he did sign off on the recent PC Game (which is pretty fun!).

  • I think 'Everybody Loves Raymond' would go on to eventually get a bigger deal.

  • Aug. 31, 2011, 10:36 a.m. CST

    @cinemajerk , Don't feel sad. A lot of actors do commercials over seas.

    Chris LLoyd is rich off his ass, and he deserves it! He just likes to work. It's great to see him as Doc and we all gotta get old some day. I'm just glad the two of them are still around.

    I think Spielberg/Zemeckis/Gale have right of refusal on any remake or sequel

    by Billy_D_Williams

    its in their contract...meaning Universal has to get their approval before doing a remake, which they (most likely) will not allow, so no remake, at least while they're all still alive.

  • Aug. 31, 2011, 11:35 a.m. CST

    This just proves ... !

    by MattHooper

    That they could do something "with" Doc -- even without Marty. No offense to Michael J. Fox, but if illness precludes him from being involved, then perhaps they should merely work on a Doc Brown sci-fi movie, or TV show.

  • Aug. 31, 2011, 11:36 a.m. CST

    plus no one remakes a Spielberg production without his approval

    by Billy_D_Williams

    its his "deal" in Hollywood, its just not done...like Universal couldn't remake Jaws without his approval...and since no Spielberg production has been remade yet and he's not likely to let it happen while he's alive, then no go, thank God.

    Am I the only one who'd love to see a remake?

    by Golden_Ux

    Fox was really poor in this trilogy, his acting is terrible! Also the special effects are really dated now and out of touch with todays world. I think instead of going back to 1955 they should go back to 1985, such an innocent era. I think someone like Michael Caine or Anthony Hopkins would make a better Doc Brown with Shia LeBeouf or Zac Effron as Marty Mcfly. I don't see why the film is so sacred anyway!

    by theawesomeofbuscemi

    Could be about Doc's kids in the old west 'stumbling' across a secret cave/basement etc and inadvertently going to the future...of 1985?? Hmm maybe let a classic be untouched. It honestly ruins the other films in return. Case & point: Indy.

    glorious films

    by IWasInJuniorHighDickhead

    notice that the love for them just gets deeper as time goes by, because they haven't been sullied by remakes/cash grab sequels (thanks to Gale and Zemeckis). <P> Ironically, I think this was one franchise that did have more places to go, but I love, love, love the fact that it was put to bed early and it didn't wear out its welcome. Just imagine what those cunts out there would do to our dear BTTF, if they got the chance.

  • Lloyd reprised his role as Doc Brown, and Fox made a cameo in the fifth chapter. (Marty was played by an uncannily good sound-alike.) The game is very faithful to the tone and spirit of the original films ... any fans should definitely check it out!

    Respect the Series, but possible *other* adventures

    by Chris

    Sometime after 1:24am October 26th 1985. Doc Brown leaves Marty and goes 30 years in the future. Shortly after 10:28 am October 26th 1985, Doc Brown returns to take Marty to help fix his kids. In the span of these short few hours (to Marty and the audience): 1) Doc goes from wanting to know who wins the next 30 world series, to not wanting to use the time machine for financial gain. 2) Although he spent his whole family fortune on developing the time machine, he has acquired a suitcase full of money for any temporal period. 3) He has a hover conversion kit installed in the time machine 4) he leaves the dog in the kennel. 5) He checks into a rejuvenation clinic. Therefore, we do not know all Doc did before coming back for Marty. This time frame can be when another story can take place. No need to fix the train destroyed time machine, no need to use the flying train.

    Have they remade BTTF yet?....

    by JaNath

    ......Well, this website tells you all about it. I'll warn you, it's extremely in depth, virtually a doctorate or PHD on the the reasons why it shouldn't be re-made. But a good read nonetheless: http://havetheyremadebacktothefutureyet.com/ Also, like an earlier post said, SO many of Hollywooods good and great make overseas commercials - lots of wonga and few people would see them. Until the internet. Great Scot! Still, fantastic time re-entry effect. Granted, one a 13 yr old could do on his sticky laptop, but still.

    How about the idea of another 'Back To The Future' trilogy, but instead of using live actors, Zemeckis makes the movie in the motion capture style of 'The Polar Express', and M.J. Fox and co. voice the characters instead? Don't laugh...it could work.

Shame that most people only see Lloyd as Doc Brown, though I must admit to Doc meaning more to me than Rev. Jim.

    Sequel or remake, but only in 2015

    by Randxts

    They are remaking or making sequels to nearly every other 80s franchise or film. The originals BttF was the most entertaining film from start to finish I have ever seen. There were no dull parts, it was all good. If they want to remake it or make a sequel, they have to set the present day in 2015 and for symmetry's sake they need to go back 30 years to 1985. If they do that, and have a good story, I'm on board.

    Back to the Future is perfect, doesn't need a reboot/remake

    by AndTheRest

    The entire Back to the Future trilogy is perfect and don't need to be rebooted/remade. I'll take remakes of the star wars prequels though in a heartbeat... my 4 year old asked to watch Star Wars (ep. 4) and he LOVED it, I was so proud. Since I hadn't seen it in awhile I tried watching Revenge of the Sith and, good lord, how bad is Natalie Portman in that movie? I was surprised that I wasn't cringing with Hayden's performance the way I thought I would but almost EVERY line out of Portman's mouth was awful. "You're breaking my heart!&^$%#". Why can't Lucas just remake those now... the story of the prequels is actually quite good, Lucas is a great storyteller. BUT, someone needs to take his pen and paper, and director's chair away from him.

  • The different versions of him and his descendants/ancestors were all entertaining, no matter what age or timeline. Too bad the actor didn't catch on, but I think he was in a Larry the Cable Guy movie a few years ago.

  • You could almost explain away Biff being the massive douche he is because of his upbringing, being raised by a loudmouthed grandmother. However, pretty much everybody in his whole line is obnoxious, stupid, and self-centered. They might as well be Baldwins. =P As far as Tom Wilson goes...Everything I've seen and read about this guy sort of makes me feel sorry for him. Actually, he makes me feel sad for ALL BttF fans. He comes off as equal parts bitter and contradictory. He will sign autographs and give fans the occasional hug, but he won't sign any BttF related stuff. No matter how nice or sincere the fan is. He feels that people are just going to put the stuff on eBay. He doesn't account for the fact that there are legitimate fans who just want that connection to an actor who the remember fondly. He's pretty jaded. In his stand up act, he says that he hates BttF questions and Biff-ism, but clearly milks it for all its worth in his act. He seems really bitter because he's the only one not to have seen a career boost come from these movies. - Crispin Glover has remained the eccentric, yet fairly well respected avant-garde actor that we'd expect him to be. He's rarely hard pressed to find work. - Michael J Fox was shitting gold there for a while with a whole string of movies. It wasn't until the Parkinson's hit him hard during Spin City that his career took a back seat. - Leah Thompson didn't do big things at the movies, but did find success on TV with Caroline in the City, which lasted for a bunch of seasons. - Christopher Lloyd was already a well known quantity and remained so well after this series. Roger Rabbit was another feather in his cap and there was even some (limited) appeal to his short lived show with Pam Anderson. Tom Wilson, honestly, didn't do shit after being Tannen. He's had some tiny nobody parts here and there, most recently in Franklin & Bash, but his career went into the toilet. Maybe he was a victim of his popularity, with Biff being so iconic that nobody wanted him to play non-Biff roles. However, I'm inclined to believe that everybody in the cast had good agents except for him. He claims that he's now more focused on being an artist, but it usually comes off as a lame excuse whenever he says it. He really doesn't embrace his icon status, nor does he try to milk it as Lloyd clearly has. Instead of accepting Biff as something fans hold a fondness for, he rejects it as if its the plague. The sad, sad fate of Biff. Kids, this is what happens to bullies in real life - even pretend ones.

    Tom Wilson

    by darthvedder81

    He was terrific as Coach Fredericks in "Freaks & Geeks." At times you could see the Biff come out in him, but he also displayed a tender side on that show as well. BTTF is one of those rare movies that holds up beautifully even 25 years later. Hell, I think I like it MORE now than I did when I was a kid and I loved it back then.

    always thought alternate 80's Biff tainted BTTF 2

    by MurderMostFowl

    I always hated the womanizer/total asshole verison of Biff in the alternate 80's. It completely ruined the charm of thecharacter... we loved to hate him in the first movie because he's a bully, but he wasn't actually a bad person. ( ok you could say he was for the sexual assault thing ) but what was lasting about the character was the slapstick part of his character. In #2, we see Biff as an actual threat, and a pretty scary sociopath. Contrast this with the Future Biff ( old guy ), who is the character we know and love. His scenes are massively better than alternate 80's Biff. Small gripe, but thought I'd bring it up... A reboot would ultimately star some idiot like Justin Beeber. You know Hollywood would do it. Please Hollywood, never speak of this again.

    by MurderMostFowl

    It's pretty good. Not really my thing, but 50's pop art is supposedly in demand right now. ( http://www.bigpopfun.com/ ) I also always thought his song "Stop asking me the question" was really funny. And he played "Maniac" in the old Wing Commander games, so I'll always have a special pixelated FMV spot in my heart for that!

    How does rebooting something affect the original thing? Was ever painting that Michaelangelo did a classic? Did he have a few missteps? Did a few duds mitigate the Sistine Chapel?

    Why does the ad end so abrubtly? My guess is since this Doc's from 1985 that he's unfamiliar with IPhones, but still it's a weird ending. Doc: "What year is this?" Guy: "Uhh..."' Doc: "2011?" *dances* Too bad CL didn't get a better reaction than "Uhh..." to act from. It seems to me that the people from Garbarino lazily let him improvise by himself unscripted, so the clip loses momentum after that point.

    Thanks Merrick!

    Love Lloyd, love the first BTTF. I think the commercial is better than both the sequels combined. The BTTF sequels and Jurassic Park 2 make up the Axis of Evil Sequels. Worst sequels ever. Thanks again Merrick for all the good stuff you bring to AICN.

    Biff was an actual threat in 1955, too. A genuinely bad person. He incessantly bullied and humiliated George, tried to kill Marty with his car and rape Lorraine. The reason he was even worse in 1985B was because he ad all the money from the sports almanac and could do whatever he wanted. Future Biff was still an asshole, too, just not the uber-asshole his 1985B persona would have become.

    Doc Brown

    Best one ever was the first one. I didn't care to much for the sequels. Just didn't have the impact for me, as much as the first one did. The one part I did like of the sequels, was the Cafe 80's, in the first sequel. Funny, with Reagan being Max Headroom, and Michael Jackson, also providing his own voice I think. With Biff taking over the world, and marrying Marty's Mom...not so much. Also, what kind of pervs, would make Lea Thompson don fake boobs? Stupid. Also, without Crispen Glover as Marty's dad, even though he had a small part, it just wasn't the same. The only cast member, not back from the original for at least one of the sequels. But anytime, we get to see Christopher Lloyd, do anything, is ok with me. Great actor, and fine comedian. Taxi anyone? "What does a yellow light mean?"

    @9thfortress; they did remake Casablanca

    as 'Barb Wire'. Sad, but true

  • Maybe it was an incomplete clip. Maybe it was part of a viral campaign and not designed as a full fledged ad. Could be either.. or none.

    I celebrate all the BTTFs with relish. I own two hoverboards and a flux capacitor. The subject of my post was a quote from "stunt vocalist 709"'s ridiculous statement. For some reason AICN now doesn't recognize quotation marks in the subject of the message boards.

    Jesse Eisenberg for Marty

    by Monolith_Jones

    And he'll be a DJ and wreck those 60's (70's?) kid's minds when he starts flippin' breakbeats and doing crab and transformer scratches. His dad will be a square, his mom a hippie. Doc Brown will be Liam Neeson.

    That's what Doc Brown should have said!
