Approx. 116 min. DCP.

When he gets behind the wheel of Doc Brown’s Delorean-turned-time machine, typical 80s teen Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) finds himself plunged into the nifty 1950s, walking the halls of his high school with his dorky dad, butting heads with bully Biff, and fighting off the advances of… his mom? But what if Marty’s time travel prevents his parents from sharing that all-important first date? It’s a race against time to save his very existence.


“The movie isn’t just fun. It’s fun at the speed of light, a whiz-bang time-travel adventure likely to result in some decidedly high-octane box-office dollars.”
– Kirk Ellis, The Hollywood Reporter

“Once past a shaky opening overloaded with frenetic exposition, this time-travel odyssey accelerates with wit, ideas and infectious, wide-eyed wonder. Following nationwide, jumbo opening July 3, grosses are sure to brighten the summer of Universal Studios and such key filmmakers as director Robert Zemeckis and co-exec producer Steven Spielberg.”
– Ray Loynd, Variety
