'Back to the Future' Stars Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd Reunite in Touching Photo


Marty McFly and Doc Brown reunited and it didn’t take the use of a flux capacitor.

“Back to the Future” co-stars Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd joined forces for a good cause in heartwarming shots posted to each of their Instagram accounts.

The duo met up at a poker tournament in support of the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. Fox, 58, started the charity organization in 2000, nine years after he publicly announced he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at the age of 29.

“Going 88mph for the @michaeljfoxorg Poker Night,” Lloyd captioned a photo which referenced the speed a Delorean must reach in order to time travel in the film. In the snap, the 81-year-old has his arm around Fox.

The “Family Ties” alum shared a slightly different photo alongside Lloyd and included the comment, “All in with @mrchristopherlloyd at @michaeljfoxorg Poker Night!”

The reunion pics come as “Back to the Future” is set to celebrate its 35th anniversary later this year.

Released in July 1985, the film was a blockbuster hit and earned over $389 million at the box office. It spawned two sequels, “Back to the Future II” and “Back to the Future III,” which were shot back-to-back and released in 1989 and 1990, respectively.

A musical adaptation of the Robert Zemeckis film entitled “Back to the Future: The Musical” is currently being staged at the Manchester Opera House in England and is set to hit London’s West End in May.

Popular songs from the movie like “The Power of Love” and “Back in Time” are included in the theater production.

Fox and Lloyd are next set to reunite, this time with fellow co-star Lea Thomspon, at a special 35th anniversary screening of “Back to the Future” during the TCM Classic Film Festival in April.
