Cameron marks Back To The Future Day by referencing the beloved film franchise during PMQs
David Cameron marked yesterday’s Back To The Future Day by making a reference to the beloved film franchise during Prime Minister’s Questions.
Taking a dig at opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, the Prime Minister quipped: “Frankly it’s today that we’re celebrating that great film Back To The Future and it’s not surprising that many people sitting behind him will tell him to get in his DeLorean and go back to 1985 and stay there.”
Watch Cameron’s joke below.
Yesterday – October 21, 2015 – marked the exact date that Michael J Fox’s Marty McFly and Christopher Lloyd’s Doc Brown travelled to in 1989’s Back To The Future Part II. The third and final film to date, Back To The Future Part III, followed in 1990, but Lloyd has now spoken enthusiastically about reviving the franchise a quarter of a century later.
“It’d have to be something momentous and current: dealing with ISIS or climate change or something radical and have a real urgency to it,” Lloyd said of a potential fourth film. “I don’t know what that would be.”
In another recent interview, Lloyd also said that co-star Michael J Fox would be willing to be part of the project despite suffering from Parkinson’s disease since 1991.
“I think regardless of the Parkinson’s, he’d probably jump on the role and he’d be great,” Lloyd said. “I can’t see doing another sequel without him… It’s hard to replace Marty. Michael J Fox was so wonderful in the role.”
