Fan trailer imagines gritty, violent ‘Back to the Future’ prequel
One of the biggest unanswered questions of the Back to the Future trilogy is,
“How did Doc Brown get involved with Libyan terrorists?”
Most of us have come to view the moment in which Doc reveals he stole plutonium from Libyan terrorists as a slightly unbelievable scene in a film where we are required to constantly suspend our disbelief. One fan, Tyler Hopkins, refused to leave the sinister plot line unexplained.
Hopkins created a trailer for a fictional film entitled 1.21 Gigawatts. The intense, stylized trailer feels more in line with Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty than the time travel comedies the franchise is known for.
That being said, we’d totally go see this.
