The Reunion Of Michael J. Fox And Christopher Lloyd 35 Years After ‘Back To The Future’

“Are you telling me that you built a time machine … from a DeLorean?” Michael J. Fox’s Marty McFly asked this iconic question to Christopher Lloyd’s ‘Doc’ in the 1985 classic, Back to the Future. And now, in the year that celebrates the 35th anniversary of the original premiere, its stars have begun the festivities with an unexpected reunion that has thrilled the most nostalgic. 35 years … how time goes by! The duo of travelers in time met for a charitable cause posing for photographs they published on their social networks (and causing a frenzy as fast as the traveling speed of DeLorean). And judging by the images full of love, time has not faded that chemistry they shared in the three films of the saga.Fox, 58, and Lloyd, 81, met again in an annual poker tournament that celebrates the founding of Michael J. for Parkinson’s research. An organization that the actor founded in 2000 to help in finding solutions for the same disease that was diagnosed in 1991 when he was 29. “Going 88 miles per hour to Poker Night of @michaeljfoxorg” wrote Lloyd next to his post on Instagram, referring to the speed of light that made the DeLorean travel through time.This pair of interpreters has maintained friendship for all these years after sharing three of the highest grossing films of the 80s, released between 1985 and 1990 under the command of Robert Zemeckis. Fox continues to give interviews sporadically and his professional efforts are mainly focused on his foundation. “He is living his life the best he can, and much better than many of us,” Lloyd said during his appearance at the 2017 London ComicCon about his friend and partner. “I think it’s wonderful.” Due to the 35th anniversary of the premiere of the first film, Fox and Lloyd, along with actress Lea Thompson, are scheduled to meet again in the 11th edition of the TCM Classic Film Festival – which will take place between the 16th and April 19 in Hollywood – to celebrate it with a special screening. Return to the future was the highest grossing film of 1985, becoming a phenomenon of such dimensions that four years later premiered sequel and one later came the third. In total, the trilogy has reaped 860 million euros ($ 970 million) and generated a universe of theme parks, animated series, video games and even a musical. The request for a fourth installment has surrounded the saga since the 1990s, however, its creator and director has commented on active and passive that will never see the light. Moreover, as he owns the rights to the films, he has ruled that he will block any attempt to revive them in the form of a remake or reboot. “It can’t be done until Bob (co-writer) and I are dead,” he said in an interview with The Telegraph.
