Back To The Future Day
The media is abuzz with stories reminding us that October 21, 2015 was the day Michael J. Fox's character, Marty McFly, in the Hollywood movie, "Back To The Future 2," travelled to in 1989 to save his children. What predictions did the movie get right about the future? Well, as this YouTube video explains, some believe the "Back To the Future" movie trilogies actually predicted the terrorist attacks on 9/11. Coincidentally, the latest film of director Robert Zemeckis, who directed the "Back To The Future" trilogy, "The Walk," opened this month, and it depicts the 1974 high-wire act of Phillipe Petit between the two World Trade Center towers. Petit, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, is dressed remarkably similar to Marty McFly's character in "Back To The Future" as he performs his high-wire act.
