I am not sure why this movie was called Project Almanac.
As far as I remember the protagonists just make up the name out of the blue and never mention it again, so maybe there is no significance at all and it is just a random code word. (One of them also says he wants to be called "Obsidian One" now, which would be another random name as far as I can tell.)
But the more I think about it the more I suspect it might be a homage to Back to the Future 2, one of the greatest time travel movies known to man, which prominently features a sports almanac in the story line that is used to predict future horse racing results.
- What is the significance of the movie title "Project Almanac"?
- Is there any hard evidence that it is a hint at the Back to the Future series, for example a statement of the director or writers?
