Back to the Future Day is here! October 21, 2015 was the date that Marty McFly and Doc Brown travel to at the end of the classic sci-fi comedy, and when much of its first sequel was set. Now Doc Brown himself--or rather, actor Christopher Lloyd--has recorded a special video message from his time-travelling Delorean. Check it out here:
Back to the Future was released in 1985 to critical and commercial success. It was the highest grossing fim of that year, and spawned two sequels, which were shot back-to-back and released in 1989 and 1990.
As with all popular movie franchises, it was inevitable that talk would eventually get round to remaking the films. However, in an interview with the Telegraph in June, director Robert Zemeckis confirmed that he and co-creator Bob Gale hold the rights to the property, and that a new version would not happen in his lifetime.
"That can't happen until both Bob and I are dead," he said. "And then I'm sure they'll do it, unless there's a way our estates can stop it.
"To me, that's outrageous. Especially since it's a good movie. It's like saying ‘Let's remake Citizen Kane. Who are we going to get to play Kane?' What folly, what insanity is that? Why would anyone do that?"
Earlier this week, a Grand Theft Auto V video homage to Back to the Future showed Trevor as Doc Brown. Einstein the dog even made an appearance. Check it out here.
