‘Back To The Future’ stars reunite at London Film and Comic-Con

Classic sci-fi flick celebrated its 30th anniversary earlier this month (July)

Back To The Future stars Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson reunited for a special 30th anniversary panel at London Film and Comic-Con on Sunday (July 19).

During the panel, Fox revealed that driving the trilogy’s iconic DeLorean car was a treacherous endeavour. “It was the worst thing to drive,” he told fans at London’s Olympia exhibition centre. “It had two gears and I slammed the door, and my hand would smash into the flux capacitor. My hand would be bleeding, my head would be bleeding… and I had to clean it off to get to the Family Ties [sitcom] set.”

Fox then added that “the money it would take to get me back into the DeLorean again is a lot”, the Radio Times reports. Meanwhile, Thompson shared a picture of the cast-mates reunited at the event on Instagram.


The original Back To The Future film celebrated its 30th anniversary on July 3. Keith Lemon is to host a Back To The Future tribute show on ITV2 later this year to mark the anniversary.

Meanwhile, the trilogy’s director Robert Zemeckis has recently revealed that Back To The Future cannot be remade until he and the film’s screenwriter Bob Gale are both dead. He described the concept of a reboot as “outrageous” and “insanity”.
