Marty McFly Future Date

There I was on facebook this morning and noticed a couple of friends had liked a picture of back to the future. Back To The Future happens to be one of my favourite films and, from what I can recall of the entire script, he doesn’t arrive in 2012 in any of the movies.

There is a line, at the start of the original film, where Doc Brown states that he might go twenty five years in to the future but no date is given.  Instead, the time line takes place across one hundred and thirty years, with 1985 and 1985(A) the pivotal points in history.

Marty and the Doc manage to hop around predominately between 1955, 1985 and 2015, with a Wild West trip to 1885 just for good measure.  Just to make sure I wasn’t going completely barmy, I got a bit nerdy and checked the official Back To The Future Wiki page and, sure enough, the timeline doesn’t show anything more exciting happening between 2008 and 2012 than perhaps a woman becoming President of the United States… (you never know, but not yet!)

you can find the official timeline here:

For anybody really worried about whether they’re going to bump in to Marty McFly or not, he’s officially due to arrive in to the future on October 21st, 2015.

That means there’s still plenty of time for flying DeLoreans and hoverboards to be invented yet… ( seriously i really want a hover board, it;s been on my Christmas list for years!)
