From Jordan Zakarin: Great Scott! 14 Things You May Not Know About the Making of “Back to the Future”
This month marks the date that Marty McFly traveled to in Back to the Future II, and sadly, we still don’t have a time traveling DeLorean. On the bright side, there are two huge new books and a new documentary coming out that can help us look back on producer Steven Spielberg and director Robert Zemeckis’s iconic sci-fi film franchise. Everyone knows the basic behind-the-scenes stories — like Michael J. Fox replacing Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly midway through filming — but the books We Don’t Need Roads and Back to the Future: The Ultimate Visual History, along with the new doc Back in Time, offer up many more deep-dive details. We’ve collected a few highlights to help kick off your BTTF celebration.
