Back to the Future Prequel Trailer: 1.21 Gigawatts

Last year, screenwriter Bob Gale and IDW teamed to create a new Back to the Future comic book series. Under the subtitle “Untold Tales and Alternate Timelines,” it lets fans experience some of the events that happened off screen, or in alternate timelines. For example, in the first issue we find out how Doc Brown and Marty McFly first meet and learn about Doc’s involvement in the super-secret Manhattan Project. Questions like “how did Marty and Doc meet” are so inconsequential to the main story of the franchise, but have captured fans’ imaginations for the last thirty years.

Or here’s another question: What actually happened with Doc Brown’s shady dealings with the Libyan terrorist group? The answer is the subject of a new Back to the Future prequel fan edit trailer by Tyler Hopkins. Hit the jump to watch the Back to the Future Prequel Trailer: 1.21 Gigawatts.
