.Eric Stoltz was originally cast as Marty McFly when Michael J. Fox declined as he was busy filming the TV series Family Ties.^ A few years into Family Ties , Gary David Goldberg was approached and asked to let Fox star in a Steven Spielberg produced film about a time-travelling teenager.

^ Michael J. Fox starred in the highly successful series of 'Back to the Future' movies, and the television series 'Family Ties' and 'Spin City', for which he won three Emmy awards.

^ Months later, Goldberg was again asked about Michael because Eric Stoltz , who had been chosen for the part after Goldberg stated that Fox wasn't available, was reportedly not giving the energetic performance that Robert Zemeckis , the director, was looking for.

.However, during filming Stoltz and the filmmakers decided Stoltz was miscast, so they asked Fox again and he managed to work out a timetable in which he could give enough time and commitment to both; the subsequent recasting meant the crew had to race through reshoots and post-production to complete the film for its July 3, 1985 release date.^ Release Date: 04/12/2005 Starring: Michael J.

.The Back to the Future crew met with Goldberg again, who made a deal that Fox's main priority would be Family Ties, and if a scheduling conflict arose, "we win". Fox loved the script and was impressed by Zemeckis and Gale's sensitivity in sacking Stoltz, because they nevertheless "spoke very highly of him".[3] Per Welinder and Tony Hawk assisted on the skateboarding scenes, though Hawk had to leave the film because he was taller than Fox, having doubled for Stoltz in various scenes.^ Ever since Michael J.

Crispin Glover played George McFly. Zemeckis said Glover improvised much of George's nerdy mannerisms, such as his shaky hands.

Back to the Future is a 1985 movie. It starred Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd and Crispin Glover. The movie was produced by Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale. The movie is part of a trilogy of 3 movies telling the entire story.

Contents

Plot

The topic of the movie is time travel. It takes place at Hill Valley, a fictional city in California, and shows the adventures of Marty McFly and his friend Doc Emmett Brown. Doc has created a modified version of a car, a DeLorean, which can travel through time. The real present in all 3 movies is October 1985

Back to the Future: Part I

In 1985, Doc Emmett Brown shows teenage Marty his new creation: a car which can travel through the time. The heart of the time machine is "the flux capacitor," invented by Dr. Brown. The time machine needs plutonium to provide the power for the flux capacitor. Marty uses the car to escape from Libyan terrorists and accidentally goes back to the year 1955. Marty seeks out and meets Dr. Brown in 1955. The time machine is out of Plutonium, and there is no Plutonium available for the time machine in 1955. By chance, Marty knows the time and place of a one-time natural event (Lightning Strike) that can provide the power to transport the time machine and Marty back to 1985.

The situation in 1955 is complicated when Marty meets his own parents as teenagers. When he helps his father, he accidentally changes the events that lead to his parents becoming a couple. (Marty's teenage mother becomes interested in Marty instead of Marty's father, George). With the help of the Doc of 1955, Marty will try to undo the damage he has done, and make his mother fall in love with his father. If he can get his parents back together, he has very little time to get back to the time machine/car to use the lightning strike to take the time machine and him (Marty) back to the future. (1985)

Back to the Future Part II

At the end of the Back to the Future I, 1985 Doc uses the time machine to go 30 years into the future.(2015) At the beginning of Back to the Future II Doc comes back from the future to 1985 to take 17 year old Marty and his girlfriend Jennifer to 2015 to prevent a disaster with his son Marty Junior. The problem with Marty Jr. is solved, but 17 year old Marty creates another problem that changes events in 1955. They discover this when they go back to 1985. The change in 1955 has turned 1985 into a bad world. Doc and Marty go back to 1955 to undo the damage. At the end of the movie the Doc is striked by lighting in the DeLorean and is sent back to Jan the 1st 1885 at 8 am.

Back to the Future Part III

At the end of Back to the Future II, a lightning bolt sends 1985 Doc and the time machine from 1955 back to 1885. Marty finds the time machine where 1985/1885 Doc hid it. He soon find's out that the Doc is shot by Buford 'Mad Dog' Tannen and goes back to 1885 to save Doc from dying.
