A teen accidentally time-traveling to the 1950s through a DeLorean sounds like a recipe for disaster, but in the hands of Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, BACK TO THE FUTURE is anything but. Zemeckis and Gale make the most of their film?s premise, exploring every possible avenue and constantly surprising. Charismatically led by Michael J. Fox and filled with dazzling visual effects, BACK TO THE FUTURE is a timeless piece of blockbuster filmmaking.

In addition to co-writing and producing all three installments of the trilogy and writing/co-creating/producing the musical adaptation, he wrote the screenplays to such films as I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND, 1941, and USED CARS.
