“Back To The Future” was a product of Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis. These two brilliant minds created one of the greatest trilogies of all time! The first movie was so well-received that the makers went ahead with two more commercially successful sequels, an animated TV series, theme park ride, toys, comic books, and what not! The franchise is culturally and aesthetically beautiful. The first movie in the trilogy was released way back in 1985. After almost three decades, where are the actors now? Check it out!
