Elijah Wood talks Back to the Future 2 day and his classic scene from the film

Elijah Wood’s latest movie is Cooties, in which he plays a teacher fighting off a plague of feral kids. But we’re also coming up on a special date related to one of Wood’s first films. Oct. 21, 2015 is the day Marty McFly encounters a young Wood in a future arcade in Back to the Future 2.

When EW’s Dalton Ross brought up the role with Wood in a recent interview, the actor began comparing Back to the Future’s vision of the future to our very own 2015. We’re getting closer to real-life hoverboards, as Wood notes, but not enough people are wearing colanders as hats. 

Watch the entire segment above. Cooties is out Sep. 18.
