Back to the Future: Michael J Fox and cast celebrate anniversary


When Marty McFly travelled back to the future
in 1989 he arrived at the date the 21st October 2015 and was greeted by flying cars and self-tying
trainers…As that date became a reality the actor who played Marty, Michael J Fox, may
not have been greeted by hovering skateboards but he was certainly greeted with a lot of
excitement as hundreds of fans gathered to celebrate the film. “It’s like the Pope’s visit – the only similarity is that to the Pope – I’m not trying to compare myself to the Pope. But I’ve been busy it’s been one thing after the other, because people want to mark this and they want to take a note of it because the movies have meant something to them. And when you’re involved in something like that it’s just so humbling and a privilege and I never, I don’t know that I ever thought it would be like this 30 years out.” The cast of the cult movie gathered on the
significant date from the second installment of the trilogy – to mark 30 years since the
release of the original Back to the Future film. And after 3 decades Michael says he’s
still surprised by the cult following the film has. “I think that it just speaks to different generations in different ways. And what we didn’t know was it would speak to a different generation further than how far we were reaching in the movie. We thought it would speak to the 50’s generation and the 80’s generations, we didn’t know that it would speak to the 90’s generation and the 21st-century generation. So it just kind of continues to amaze us.” Christopher Lloyd, who played the mad genius
inventor Doc Brown says he still feels fortunate to have been part of the franchise. “It’s a dream come true to be in a film that has the kind of profound impact that it has on so many people. Kids and adults, and for it to endure the way this film has. It’s amazing, it’s a rarity. So I call myself fortunate to be a part of it.” And Lea Thompson, who played Marty McFly’s
Mum also made an appearance at the event in New York and was happy to mark the special
anniversary: “Oh, you know what, if people want to celebrate, I’d love to celebrate with them. Who should I be to be like crabby about it. Oh geeh, everybody wants to celebrate a movie that I did. So, yeah, I’m just like really excited that people are enjoying the movies. That they’re seeing them and they have a chance to see them again share them with their families.” So although not all of the crazy technoligies
shown in the film have become a reality, One thing that is defintely for real is the cult
following which the film has buil up and although executive producers say a fourth installment
of the franchise looks unlikely – you never know what will happen in the future…
