Michael J. Fox goes 'Back to the Future,' again


Michael J. Fox looks like he went back in time again. 

During a recent trip to Universal Studios in Orlando, the actor who went "Back to the Future" as Marty McFly in the '80s film series found his DeLorean time machine and even a Doc Brown stand-in. 

The car is said to be one used as a stunt vehicle from "Back to the Future III."

Universal posted the photo to its Twitter account.

Behind the time traveling pair was the locomotive Doc Brown outfitted as a new time machine for his family in the third installment of the "Back to the Future" trilogy.

The two vehicles are parked near where Universal's "Back to the Future" ride once operated. It closed in 2007.

Recently, Fox teamed up with Nike to raise money for his foundation to find a cure for Parkinson's disease.

The shoe company gave away 89 pairs of its limited-edition, self-lacing sneakers inspired by "Back to the Future."

"Though it initially shared only a few seconds of screen time with Michael, the idea behind the Nike Mag unlocked something much bigger at Nike," Nike chairman and CEO Mark Parker said in a statement. "It sent us down an uncharted path of innovation, but it also opened our eyes to our ability to fight some of the world’s biggest challenges. We feel privileged for the opportunity to raise even more awareness for the fight against Parkinson's."

The Nike Mag sneakers feature Nike's new HyperAdapt system, which uses a sensor that responds to the weight of a wearer's foot to automatically lace the shoes. The heels of the shoes light up to signal when the shoe is tightening and when the batteries need to be charged.

The raffle closed on Oct. 11, and winners were notified in mid-October.

The shoes will hit the market at select Nike retail locations at the end of the month.

The bar is closed at that hour, but ...
