Here’s a look at October 22. USA Today
If you’re running to your local newspaper seller today to try to buy a special “Back to the Future Part II” edition of USA Today, you’re one day too early.
October 21 is the day Marty McFly arrived in the future, but the newspaper he and Doc Brown monitor so carefully in the film was the one for Thursday, October 22, 2015.
In celebration of the film, USA Today is releasing a special cover wrap with headlines from the movie on October 22. You don’t have to be a time traveler to read the fictional news. A copy has already been posted on USA Today’s Facebook page.

The main headline, as seen in the movie, reads “Youth Jailed: Martin McFly Junior Arrested for Theft.” This is what kickstarts the whole plot of “Part II.” McFly and Doc Brown work together to try to save Marty Jr. from making a massive mistake.
The rest of tomorrow’s USA Today edition includes some smaller headlines taken from the paper in the film, along with a host of new news stories. Instead of “Washington Prepares for Queen Diana’s Visit,” we get “3D Billboards: Free Speech or Traffic Hazards?”
There are a ton of in-jokes to keep “Back to the Future” fans occupied. There’s a story lower on the page reading “3 injured when mom re-hydrates pizza slices.” On the side, a teaser heading says “Atrocity Channel’s Immolation Special Gets Super Hot Ratings.”
There’s a lot to love here, but perhaps the best part is that USA Today left in the “Via Compu-Fax Satellite” note in the upper-left corner of the paper. “Back to the Future Part II” didn’t get everything right, but at least the headlines for October 22 will be mostly accurate.
