Christopher Lloyd may be best known for his iconic portrayal of Dr. Emmett Brown in all three “Back to the Future” movies, but his career also includes blockbuster films like “The Addams Family” and “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” and classic TV series like “Taxi.” Some of Lloyd’s other top credits include “Dennis the Menace,” “Angels in the Outfield,” “To Be or Not to Be,” “Clue,” and “Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.”
Lloyd recently appeared with his “Back to the Future” co-stars Michael J. Fox and Lea Thompson at Wizard World Philadelphia in June.
From the Academy Award-winning filmmakers Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis comes “Back to the Future,” the 1985 groundbreaking adventure that sparked one of the most successful trilogies ever. The phenomenally popular films literally changed the future of the adventure movie genre. Powered by innovative special effects, unforgettable songs, and nonstop action, “Back to the Future” is an unrivaled adventure that stands the test of time, immersing you in all the breathtaking action, groundbreaking comedy, and sheer movie-making magic of one of the most brilliantly inventive, wildly entertaining motion picture triumphs in Hollywood history.
A worldwide cultural phenomenon, “Back to the Future” was executive produced by Spielberg and directed by Zemeckis. Starring Michael J. Fox as time-traveler Marty McFly, the film was shot at night to accommodate the actor’s daytime commitment to TV’s “Family Ties.” The highest grossing film of 1985, “Back to the Future” launched one of the most successful franchises in Universal’s history, including two theatrical sequels, an animated television series, a theme park ride, toys, comic books, video games, and apparel.
Following a year-long grassroots effort, the U.S. Library of Congress announced in December 2007 the preservation of the original “Back to the Future” film by its addition to the National Film Registry. As one of 25 elite films annually deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” and of enduring importance to popular American culture, “Back to the Future’s” preservation ensures that this timeless classic will be enjoyed by future audiences throughout the rest of time.
