21st OCTOBER 2015: "BACK TO THE FUTURE" DAY


For many people, October 21st 2015 might be an insignificant date. However if you've seen the film "BACK TO THE FUTURE II", you'll know the day is here. Yes, the date when Doc and Marty McFly got into the DeLorean car converted into a time machine and travelled into the future. 
No doubt, the film starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd has been a hit and has created a great number of fans interested in seeing which things have become true in real life and which not.
"Where are we? When are we?" Driving along a motorway in the sky and Doc shows McFly the time calendar in the DeLorean. "We're in the XXIst century, in Hill Valley, California. It's 4:29 of Wednesday 21st October 2015" "We're in the future!". That's how the second part of "BACK TO THE FURURE" (1989) starts. A film that has become an icon in pop culture and a marketing success selling related memorabilia.
The future is here: this Wednesday is the day. By chance. Because in 1985 when the first film was premiered, no sequel had been planned. But the great success of this first film became a trilogy. With the second film they travelled to the future and Zemeckis, the film-director,  fantasized about how the world would be like in 2015.
Videocalls, digital binoculars, multiple TV channels, online shopping, digital fingerprints to open doors, flying cars and roller skates, total climate control, neon bars on road sides, biofuel... Many of Zemeckis inventions in fiction have become or will soon be true.
Others stay as simple crazy ideas or wild dreams...
