Twenty years after the tragedy, they say that the movie “Back to the Future” predicted the attack on the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001, thanks to a conspiracy theory that circulates on social networks, according to a publication on the portal of news of The Sun. The famous film was released in 1985 and years later the terrorist attacks took place in which hundreds of people died and the emblematic buildings collapsed when two planes hijacked and directed by terrorists crashed.

There is a video that circulates through YouTube in which Marty McFly, the protagonist of the film, warns of the terrorist attack on buildings and so far, that material has been seen by more than four million people around the world. It was in the scene of “the Twin Pines shopping center”, in which an alleged attack by “Muslim terrorists” from Libya is narrated, so because of this and other coincidences, it is said that this tape predicted the fatal date in the United States .

Is it true?

And is that in the video the word “twin” means a reference to the Twin Towers. Also, you can see how when you turn the mall sign, the numbers on the clock point to 911, which translates to September 11 (month 9) and the emergency number for the United States.

In addition, it is said that precisely the twin pines are apparently a “symbolic representation of the Twin Towers.” Before the attack, the “twin” pines are there, but then the word twin is changed to solitary, and the pines are replaced by one, as with the One World Trade building.

More controversial points

Another of the coincidences that are shown in the same scene, is when Doc shows two stopwatches, which show coded 911. Also, the twin pines are seen in Back to the Future Part II, on a projection screen at Marty’s next house.

In the film, Marty’s family is shown gathering around the screen when the twin pines are exchanged in the Twin Towers. With this the video ‘supports’ that the twin pines represent the Twin Towers, and the Twin Pines Pall is the commercial center of the twin towers. Filed Under: Barack Obama Twin Towers.

“Elaborate warning”

But in the video about Back to the Future the controversy continues, since it is said that of the three characters who observe the Twin Towers on the screen, one of them is in an uproar, the theory indicates that the scene should be “observed from their perspective” and thus “it is clearly shown that the Twin Towers are falling.”

The tape is an “elaborate warning” of what would happen on September 11, 2001, the video says. Marty’s character knows the exact date and time when the clock tower will be hit and asks to save it before “it is struck by lightning and a” giant 911 in flames is lit on the street. ” Filed Under: Barack Obama Twin Towers

But the coincidences increase as the video progresses and it is that as is known, the film Back to the Future represents the “future” of October 2015, and in October 2015, a film of the Twin Towers, called The Walk, was released.

And that’s not all, Back to the Future which was released in 1985, and The Walk were directed by the same man, Robert Zemeckis. The video explains that the movie Marty’s family was watching is, in fact, The Walk from 2015. Filed Under: Barack Obama Twin Towers
