They were the protagonists of one of the most unforgettable film trilogies of the 80s, Return to the future. Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd, Marty McFly and Emmett ‘Doc’ Brown in the movies, they met again this weekend at a ComicCon event in New York, before an excited audience that gave them a standing ovation.
The two performers, aged 61 and 83, sat down at Javit’s Center in New York to engage in a conversation about the trilogy. “The best part of this movie was working with Chris,” Fox said, adding that he found Lloyd “fun” to work with. “because he’s just a genius.”
The subject of Parkinson’s also came up, the disease that Michael J. Fox has suffered since 1990: “Parkinson’s is a gift, and I wouldn’t change it for anything… People like Chris have always been there for me, and many of you have done. It’s not about what I have, it’s about what you’ve given me: the voice to do this and help people.
Asked about his favorite movie catchphrases, Fox said, “You can’t fight in here, this is the war room!” from the movie Dr Strangelovewhile Lloyd said, “It was once said in a movie: the future is what you make it.”
At the Jacob Javits Fairgrounds, on the banks of the Hudson River, around 200,000 people are expected to visit this year’s colossal fair, which tries to leave behind the worst of the pandemic, which forced the closure for two years and that in the past edition forced the organizers to reduce the number of visitors to 150,000.
Although San Diego (California) continues to be the mecca of Comic Con fairs, with the presence of the most famous faces of the most watched science fiction and fantasy series or the most notorious advertisements in the cinema and on the small screen, New York has turned at the most visited pop fair in the country.
