Movie Urban Legends

7 of 11

'Back to the Future II' (1989)

Legend: "Back to the Future II" correctly predicted the outcome of the 1997 World Series.

True or False?: This legend is FALSE.

This rumor began right after the Cleveland Indians beat the Florida Marlins in the 1997 World Series. A "Back to the Future" fan got his movie trivia mixed up, and incorrectly spread the rumor that the movie correctly called the winner of a World Series a whopping 12 years in advance.

In reality, "Back to the Future II" featured a radio broadcast exclaiming that the Chicago Cubs swept an unnamed Miami team in the 2015 World Series.

The legend was brought to life again in 2003 when the Cubs came close to winning the National League pennant against the Marlins. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Universal Studios)
