3. Here's some interesting trivia about the movie franchise. How many of these tidbits did you know?
After the first film's release, body kits were made for DeLoreans to make them look like the time machine.
ZZ Top had an impromptu concert of the set of BTTF III
Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) and Lorraine (Lea Thompson) actually only exchange conversation once in the entire franchise
Michael J Fox was actually an accomplished skateboarder before making the movie, although a stunt double did most of the scenes
The first movie's main setting, 1955, is the year that Albert Einstein, the dog's namesake, died
The rights to the film and its sequels are owned by Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale. In a 2015 interview, Zemeckis maintained that no reboot or remake of the series would be authorized during his or Gale's lifetime.
John Lithgow, Dudley Moore and Jeff Goldblum were all considered for the role of Doc Brown.
At the London Comic Con 2015, Michael J. Fox admitted that his four children (one son and three daughters in their teens and twenties) never saw Back to the Future
Robert Zemeckis considers BTTF II one of his favorite - and strangest - films.
In the course of the year that it took to film Back to the Future Part II (1989) and Back to the Future Part III (1990), Michael J. Fox lost his father but gained a son.
Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Thomas F. Wilson, James Tolkan, Marc McClure (deleted scene - Part II), and J.J. Cohen are the only actors to appear in all 3 movies

4. Pepsi is set to commemorate the anniversary by releasing a limited edition "Pepsi Perfect," emulating how the brand appeared when it was briefly featured in the 1989 film "Back to the Future Part II." In that film, a futuristic looking Pepsi bottle is delivered to Michael J. Fox's character through a tube. This special Pepsi will sell for $20.15 (get it?) Wonder how much it will be in Canada with the rate exchange...? How many of these Pepsi references in the movie franchise were you aware of?
In the first film, during the opening sequence, when all clocks ring at 8:00am (25 minutes slow) there's a Pepsi board visible on the upper right corner of the frame.
Also in the first film, in 1985: A Pepsi Cola can is visible when Marty's band is playing in front of the jury at HVHS
Again, in 1985: Diet Pepsi can when Marty and his father are talking about the wrecked car
Once again, in 1955: When George meets Marty at the Texaco petrol station, a Pepsi machine is visible. Marty takes a can out and drinks it.
Actually there are numerous sightings of Pepsi cans in the first film
Pepsi was not invented until 1898 so there were no Pepsi in the 1885 setting for BTTF III. However, there is a Pepsi billboard at the Pohatchee Drive-In as Marty prepares to leave 1955.
In BTTF II, the soda menu at Cafe 80's listed four types of Pepsi products: Original, Diet, Max, and Perfect. Pepsi Max did became an actual flavor in the U.S. in 2007.
