    Yeah, my very first thought at seeing the title was "This has to be a joke."

    He should remake THE ROCK with a less hacky cast while leaving all Ed Harris and David Morse segments exactly as is. The only switch ARMAGEDDON would need is CGIing Nancy Kulp to replace Liv Tyler.

    Armageddon needs to cut about 2:30 from its runtime. Making oil drillers out of astronauts harder than making astronauts out of oil drillers, gimme a break.

    For Armageddon keep Liv Tyler and CGI a completely different, less shit, movie around her.

    When Ben Affleck asked Bay why would you train oil rig workers to be astronauts and not just teach astronauts to drill Bay replied "FUCK YOU!"

    True story, unlike this.

    The good news is that Back to the Future cannot be remade without the express permission of Bobs Zemeckis & Gale. Once they're dead though, we'll see how long Universal can resist the urge.

    The creators of BttF said they will never remake it or make a sequel as long as they are alive. Pretty much hinted at that as soon as they are dead, and before their bodies are even cold, that the studio will remake the movies.

    In response to Kor:

    Me neither, but giving one to THE ROCK?????? At least ARMAGEDDON is Michael Bay's masterpiece. Buscemi in space beats Cage in Alcatraz.

    You could explain how Biff came back into the original 2015 after giving himself the almanac. ;)

    This is one of those April Fools' jokes that only a total asshole would think up.

    Look closely, you'll see the background subtely changing while he gets out and Marty and Doc come running to get into the DeLorean, showing the timeline rearranging itself.

    ^ Yup. Doc's chalkboard chart, implying that timeline changes create totally alternate, parallel timelines, isn't quite accurate. There's only one timeline, though it can obviously be modified. And in this deleted scene, 2015 Biff vanishes, due to, in Zemeckis' and Gale's theory, having been finally killed by Lorraine somewhere around 1995, and thus no longer existing:


    But not only is it a pants-wettingly terrifying scene, especially when we haven't yet witnessed the Trumpian evil young Biff will grow into, it isn't specifically explained by anything the movie shows us later, so it was cut.
