A real surprise for fans of the cult “Back to the Future” franchise. The day before at New York Comic Con, the main stars of the film series – 83-year-old Christopher Lloyd and 61-year-old Michael J. Fox – took part. The actors greeted each other with an emotional friendly hug 37 years after the release of the first part and interacted with fans in a press conference format. They looked back on their work in the franchise and analysed its impact on filmmaking.
Michael J. Fox has been battling Parkinson’s disease for 24 years, which is why he has struggled to get to the stage. Michael is now actively involved in charity work and helps people suffering from the same disease in every possible way. Christopher Lloyd’s most recent film credits include The Big Bang Theory and The Mandalorean series and the films 12 Monkeys and Nobody.
The first part of Robert Zemeckis’ American science fiction film, Back to the Future, was released in 1985. The worldwide success was followed by the second film in 1989 and the third and final part in 1990. Back to the Future was given a place of honour on the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress in 2007.
