Back to the Future Part II 1989 PG

108 mins USA Director. Robert Zemeckis

Setting off precisely where the previous film ended, Marty, Doc and Jennifer travel to 2015 to settle the problems of the McFly kids, only for Biff to steal the DeLorean and hand his 1955 self a priceless sporting almanac. In a neat spin on It’s a Wonderful Life, the trio return to an alternate 1985 where Biff has become rich and turned Hill Valley into his own fiefdom.

The second instalment to one of the most popular – and consistently entertaining – of Hollywood trilogies.
