The movie opened on July 3, 1985 with artist Drew Struzan creating the film series' distinctive artwork used on movie posters and in other marketing. After the success of the film, its two sequels were filmed together, Back to the Future Part II and Back to the Future Part III, forming a trilogy. Back to the Future grossed USD$210 million dollars at the US box office, making it the highest grossing film of 1985. On December 17, 2002, Universal Home Video released Back to the Future: The Complete Trilogy on DVD and VHS. The box sets did very well when released, despite certain framing issues.

Plot synopsis

1985 - Story Setting

Marty McFly, a 17-year old high school student, an avid skateboarder and electric guitarist, is invited by his friend Dr. Emmett Brown, a local scientist who is rather eccentric, to witness a demonstration of Doc's latest invention, his life's ambition: a time-machine made from a modified De Lorean sports car which must reach 88 miles per hour in order to travel through time. At first the car is successfully tested on Doc's dog, Einstein (named after Albert Einstein), who is sent one minute into the future. Following the test, a group of Libyan terrorists (from whom Doc has stolen the plutonium necessary to fuel the time machine, by promising to build them a bomb, but instead providing a shoddy bomb casing full of used pinball machine parts), come looking for revenge. The Libyans open fire on Doc Brown, unloading a barrage of bullets into his chest. Marty flees the Libyans in the De Lorean and inadvertently travels back to the year 1955.


It is here that Marty accidentally interferes with the first meeting of his parents George McFly and Lorraine Baines, an act with seismic cosmic significance, as it threatens to jeopardize Marty's own existence. This happens when Marty saves George from being hit by a car, after falling from a tree where he was watching a girl changing with binoculars. It is then Marty instead of George who is taken inside Lorraine's house, where Marty meets his mother's family and has dinner with them. He then heads off to find the Doc of 1955, who is skeptical at first. Everyone seems to think Marty is with the coast guard because of the puffy vest-jacket he wears which looks like a life preserver. Doc in this time is not yet a successful inventor; none of his inventions work at all. Since the date in 1955 was originally dialed-up by Doc because it was when he had fallen and had the vision of the flux capacitor ("which is what makes time travel possible"), Marty is able to explain to Doc how he bruised his head, thus convincing Doc that Marty really is from the future. Doc is then surprised and overjoyed when Marty shows him the flux capacitor in the time machine which actually works.
