It’s Back to the Future Day!
That’s right, the 21st of October 2015 the exact day and year which Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) travels forward to in the 1989 classic Back to the Future Part II. And what’s more, it’s been 30 years since the first film arrived in cinemas in 1985, making this a doubly important time to celebrate.
Now, original actors Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd have reunited for this special occasion to have a chat about the Future, or more specifically about the kind of technology they were expecting and the many cool things which haven’t yet come to pass.
Check out the fun video here.
Some of the technology hasn’t happened yet, everyone’s obsessed with the hoverboard for example but we think those rehydrated pizzas look delicious! On the other hand we’ve got many things today which the films never even considered, like the proliferation of touchscreens and mobile phones and the huge leap in personal computing.
Flying cars would be cool though…
