I may or may not have written about this already. Judging by the search I did, it looks like I haven’t. If I did already, you’re getting it again.
I feel like these pop up every other day. It’s always on Facebook and someone is always sharing the picture. “Holy shit! It’s the Back to the Future day!” No…no it’s not.
In the first Back to the Future Marty travels back to November 5th, 1955…as seen in this screenshot from the movie:
The second film is the one everyone keeps switching the date on. I’m not sure why people feel the need to do that, but I guess likes are pretty important to some people. It’s literally done every year, and usually several times a year. In Back to the Future II, Marty travels to the future, 30 years forward to October 21st, 2015. Not May 1st, 2013, not July 5th, 2010, OCTOBER 21st, 2015.
The movies are based in 1985.
-30 years (Part I): 1955
+30 years (Part II): 2015
Now we can stop believing everything we see on Facebook. You’re welcome.
