Back to the Future Day has come and gone. Barring an unexpected ride in the DeLorean, we are all permanently trapped in the future! But it’s not so bad in this non-flying car alternate 2015. At least Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd reunited for a Back to the Future themed short before reprising their roles as Marty McFly and Doc Brown for an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last Wednesday night.
There is at least one last bit of Back to the Future goodness to share. The fine folks at io9 have created a new video that condenses the events of the Back to the Future trilogy down to a mere 90 seconds. Or more accurately, it took only 82 seconds to recap the events of three movies into one easily digestible video segment. Great Scott! That’s heavy.
The video does have some very amusing graphics as it charts Marty and Doc’s journey through time, including a detour in an alternate 1985 created when Biff (Tom Wilson) stole the DeLorean and gave his younger self a sports almanac with the winners of every major sporting event up to the year 2000. With all of the merchandising tie-ins for Back to the Future Day, surely someone thought to actually write that book! It’s the perfect way to mark the occasion for sports fans and the perfect gift for anyone who wants to destroy the structure of space-time as we know it!
