#Hashtag: Oct. 21, 2015 dubbed “Back to the Future” Day


Wednesday has been dubbed “Back to the Future” Day. In the 1989 film “Back to the Future II,” Marty McFly travels from 1985 to Oct. 21, 2015 to save his future children with Dr. Emmett “Doc” Brown in his DeLorean turned time machine.

In “Back to the Future II,” the year 2015 is depicted in 1989 predictions (i.e. people whizzing around on “hoverboards”).

Twitter users shared thoughts and feelings about the film’s futuristic predictions about our present-day.
