It’s Back to the Future Day and the world is very excited about it. October 21, 2015 is the day Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled to in the sci-fi adventure film Back to the Future Part II, released in 1989.
Celebrations have kicked off across the world and it’s not just avid movie fans in the U.S. who are getting involved. Police forces, train companies and even the British Prime Minister have all jumped on the bandwagon. (Or hoverboard.)
Here’s a quick round-up of what’s going on:
British Prime Minister David Cameron made reference to the movie during his weekly Prime Minister’s Questions on Wednesday morning, traditionally an opportunity for politicians to debate the country’s most serious matters. According to the Independent newspaper, Cameron referenced the film as he highlighted Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s involvement in the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.
“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 [Corbyn] will tell him to get in his DeLorean and go back to 1985 and stay there,” Cameron said.
The police force in Richmond, west London, issued a spoof warning on their Twitter account on Wednesday, saying anyone who copies McFly and Doc’s journey into the future will be punished.
