Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox are reunited 35 years later after the science fiction film "Back to the Future" was aired. The pair just proved that friendship doesn't fade.


Lloyd, 81, took to Instagram recently to share a photo of himself and Fox, 58. He captioned the adorable snap, "Going 88mph for the @michaeljfoxorg Poker Night."

Fox also shared a similar pose. He wrote, "All in with @mrchristopherlloyd at @michaeljfoxorg Poker Night!"

As reported by USA Today, the veteran actors met up at the yearly poker competition profiting the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.

In 2001, Fox started the foundation after publicly announcing he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1991.

Lloyd and Fox have stayed lifelong friends after starring in three "Back to the Future" movies from 1985 to 1990.

In that film, Lloyd portrays scientist Dr. Emmett "Doc" Brown. Fox, on the other hand, stars as teenager Marty McFly.

McFly unexpectedly goes back in time from 1985 to 1955, and Dr. Brown helps him fix history and come back to 1985. 

Not only did the movie became the highest-grossing film of 1985, but it also received several awards.



In 2018, the two actors also reunited. But at the time, they were joined by other cast members, Lea Thompson and Thomas Wilson, as reported by Daily Mail.

The quartet comes together for a panel discussion and a behind-the-scenes photograph at Fan Expo in Boston.

At the panel discussion, the acclaimed stars shut down any proposal that there will be a "Back To The Future Part IV."


Made popular by the character of Marty, fans who attended the event were sporting the "life preserver" jackets. According to Daily Mail, the foursome last got together in 2015, when the original film turned 30.

"Back To The Future" was directed by Robert Zemeckis and written by Zemeckis and Bob Gale. The movie was released in July 1985 and grossed more than $381 million worldwide.

Not only did the movie became the highest-grossing film of 1985, but it also received several awards, including the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, the Saturn Award for Best Science Fiction Film, and the Academy Award for Best Sound Effects Editing.

In 2007, the blockbuster film was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry.

A year later, the American Film Institute's special AFI's 10 Top 10 designated it the 10th-best science fiction film.
