Back to the Future is a 1985 sci-fi comedy film produced by Steven Spielberg and directed by Robert Zemeckis. It recounts the adventures of 17-year old Marty McFly, played by Micheal. J. Fox. Marty meets Dr. Emmett “Doc” Brown (Christopher Lloyd), a bizarre but brilliant scientist who created a time machine from of a 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 automobile. Due to certain circumstances, Marty gets sent back in time from then present day 1985 to 1955, where he meets his parents, George and Lorraine, while they were still in high school and even before they got together.

A slightly altered series of events prevents Marty’s mother, Lorraine, from falling in love with George, Marty’s father, as originally slated. Such a predicament endangers Marty’s existence, and he exerts efforts to make sure his parents’ romance is consummated and his conception is secured.

Here’s a trailer of the well-loved 1985 sci-fi flick.

Back to the Future is a double whammy—- it brings you back to the 1980’s and to the 1950’s. An out of this world plot, refreshingly comic twists and stellar performances by Fox and Lloyd are more than enough reasons to laze on the sofa this weekend while cradling a tub of popcorn.

Back to the Future was the most successful film of 1985, grossing more than $383 million in the global box office. It was followed by two sequels, and is pegged as the film that launched Michael J. Fox into superstardom.
