Back To The Future (1985)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
In the life of Marty McFly, all is not well. His family is dysfunctional, his school punctuality is questionable and the music he likes and plays is just too darn loud. His one true light is his girlfriend Jenny and his one true friend is the somewhat off-kilter Doctor Emmett Brown. In a request from Doctor Brown, Marty meets the mad scientist and discovers that his friend has built a time machine out of a DeLorean. From there, Marty's humdrum life becomes literally a blast from the past as he is transported to 1955. A stranger in a strange yet familiar land, Marty must seek out Doctor Brown to help send him back to his own time while simultaneously ensuring that his parents meet and fall in love.
He's the only kid ever to get into trouble before he was born. [UK]

- He was never in time for his classes... He wasn't in time for his dinner... Then one day... he wasn't in his time at all.
- Marty McFly's having the time of his life. The only question is -- what time is it?
- Meet Marty McFly. He's broken the time barrier. Busted his parents' first date. And, maybe, botched his chances of ever being born.
- Marty McFly just broke the time barrier. He's only got one week to get it fixed.
- George McFly: Lorraine, my density has bought me to you. Lorraine Baines: What? George McFly: Oh, what I meant to say was... Lorraine Baines: Wait a minute, don't I know you from somewhere? George McFly: Yes. Yes. I'm George, George McFly. I'm your density. I mean... your destiny.
George McFly: Last night, Darth Vader came down from planet Vulcan and told me that if I didn't take Lorraine out that he'd melt my brain.
Marty McFly: Wait a minute, Doc. Ah... Are you telling me that you built a time machine... out of a DeLorean? Dr. Emmett Brown: The way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?
[1955 Doc is watching a video of 1985 Doc] Dr. Emmett Brown: What on Earth's this thing I'm wearing? Marty McFly: Ah, this, this is a radiation suit. Dr. Emmett Brown: Radiation suit? Of course, because of all the fallout from the atomic wars.
[in the past, Marty observes his dad's incompetence] Marty McFly: Jesus, George, it was a wonder I was even born.
- Michael J. Fox had always been the first choice for Marty, but he was unavailable due to scheduling conflicts with his work on "Family Ties" (1982). Eric Stoltz was cast as Marty but he disagreed with the rest of the cast and crew about the tone of the film. After a few weeks of filming, Fox was asked to replace Stoltz. Fox worked out a schedule to fulfill his commitment to both projects. Every day during production, he drove straight to the movie set after taping of the show was finished every day and averaged about one or two hours of sleep. The bulk of the production was filmed from 6pm to 6am, with the daylight scenes filmed on weekends.
Musician Mark Campbell did all of Michael J. Fox's singing. He's credited as "Marty McFly".
Michael J. Fox was allowed by the producer of "Family Ties" (1982) to film this movie on the condition that he kept his full schedule on the TV show - meaning no write-outs or missing episodes - and filmed the (majority) of the movie at night.
Michael J. Fox had to learn to skateboard for the film.
Bob Gale explains that, to find a coordinator for the skateboarding scenes, he went to Venice beach and approached two skateboarders. One turned out to be European skate champ, Per Welinder, and the skater he was with became the stunt double for Eric Stoltz, but was recast when they recast the role of Marty McFly in order to match Michael J. Fox's height.
