Back to the Future is one of those films that makes you feel very lucky to have been born in the right decade. If it wasn’t one of the first movies you saw as a kid, then it most definitely blew your mind when you were old enough to have your parents coerce you into seeing it.
The ever adventurous Marty and eccentric Doc Brown will always be part of our childhood memories–if it wasn’t for their adventures through the space-time continuum, we wouldn’t have a lot of the tech that exists today. There are a few things, however, specifically Easter eggs and facts, that you might have missed in the excitement of your first, second, or third viewing.
Here are 8 things you probably didn’t know about Back to the Future:
The game version of this iconic movie was developed by Telltale Games and released in 2010 (the PS4 and Xbox One version will be released this month). This game, according to Bob Gale (the co-creator of Back to the Future), is not canon but rather an alternate timeline in the BttF series.
Although many people consider this game the fourth story of the original trilogy, it takes place in 1986–several months after the events of the third Back to the Future installment.
The clock showed in the opening of BttF 1 featured Harold Lloyd in the 1923 film Safety Last, where Harold Lloyd is shown holding onto the minute hand of a clock tower.
After this week, Back to the Future will take place entirely in the past. Apart from blowing the minds of kids who have yet to see the movie, today commemorates our massive disappointment at still not having shoes that lace themselves, flying cars, and hoverboards.
