Far from any ordinary Wednesday, today is a day Back to the Future fans have been waiting to return to for two and half decades, October 21, 2015 being the exact date Marty McFly time-travels to. Remind yourself of what he finds there in the movie's original trailer:

Take a look below to judge just how well the make-up department did, and, as a little bonus, check out an adorable 8-year-old Elijah Wood who appeared briefly in the film!
