Another week, another batch of stars spilling their brains on the internet
It was a big week for the future (and the distant past), as both Back To The Future and Star Wars catapulted their way to the forefront of the pop-culture world, while comedy news reigned - Russell Brand on tour now, Joel McHale in the near future - and Macca's finally launched all-day breakfast. 2015 really is a hell of a time to be alive. Or, to hear our celebrity tweeters tell it...
October 21 was long-awaited by nerds everywhere eager to commemorate the day that Doc Brown and Marty McFly landed in 2015 in Back To The Future: Part II, and the internet more than rose to the occasion of celebrating the event.
