Update: The commemorative front page will be released tomorrow, Oct. 22.

Original story: Almost 30 years ago, Doc Brown and Marty McFly flew through time in Back to the Future Part 2. The date they landed on was Oct. 21, 2015.

To celebrate, today has officially been declared Back to the Future Day, with various movie theaters marathoning the trilogy, companies releasing limited-time products like Pepsi Perfect and even newspapers getting into the spirit.

In order to commemorate the occasion, USA Today will print a secondary front page for all of its newspapers tomorrow, perfectly recreating the one Marty finds in the sequel.

Hilarious headlines like "Cholesterol may cure cancer" and "Public more gullible than ever" are all pictured front and center, with fake stories written for each.

Most of what Back to the Future Part 2 predicted would happen or be invented by 2015, like hoverboards, hasn’t come to fruition, and director Robert Zemeckis has gone on the record to say he never could have predicted the importance of smartphone technology today.

Back to the Future Part 2 was originally released Nov. 22, 1989.
