21 Things ‘Back To The Future 2’ Got Wrong About 2015

If there’s one movie you should rewatch this year, it’s “Back to the Future 2.”

Did the film get it right? Not exactly.

While it predicted Skype calls and virtual-reality headsets, the film got plenty wrong — including hoverboards though we’re getting close). However, Zemeckis mentions in a featurette for the film he didn’t plan to get the future right, explaining he was not a fan of seeing it depicted in movies.

“Back to the Future 2″ debuted in theaters 26 years ago on July 3. See what the film got wrong.

USA Today did get a redesign in 2012, but it wasn’t like this. Look real close and the film also predicted “Queen Diana” would be visiting the US.

While we may not have hologram movies, Hollywood is definitely obsessed with 3D. “Jaws 19″ was a fun nod to executive producer Steven Spielberg.
