Marty McFly, a typical American teenager of the Eighties, is accidentally sent back to 1955 in a plutonium-powered DeLorean “time machine” invented by a slightly mad scientist. During his often hysterical, always amazing trip back in time, Marty must make certain his teenage parents-to-be meet and fall in love – so he can get back to the future.
The “Back to the Future” films predicted the September 11 attacks as well as the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Jr., at least according to fans.
One fan theory claims that the film actually predicted the September 11 attacks in multiple scenes. In the first movie, the clock reads 9:55 p.m. at one point, a clear indication for some fans that the film predicted 9/11 because the clock’s hands point to 9 and 11.
In a second scene, in which Marty McFly is ambushed in the Twin Pines mall parking lot, the fan points out that the shooting takes place in a location that contains the word “Twin” in its name. Naturally, he connects that to the fact that Al-Qaida chose the Twin Towers for their terrorist attack.
And he notes that turning the clock of the Twin Pines mall sign around, 1:16 a.m. becomes “911.”
2. The film echoes the assassination of John F. Kennedy
In another fan video, various eerie “similarities” are pointed out that made one fan think that the film also echoed the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy. According to the video, Dealey Plaza in Dallas, where Kennedy was assassinated, has the same layout as Hill Valley Town Square, and the courthouse clock tower look similar. In a store front, a bust of JFK is depicted, positioned in Hill Valley where JFK actually “lost his head” in Dealey Plaza.
Moreover, “Back to the Future II” was released on Nov. 22 — the day JFK was killed.
