Back to the Future is one of the greatest movies of all time. And with the 30th anniversary of the film's release, all three BTTF movies are getting a re-release on DVD and Blu-Ray. But want to hear something even more exciting? The original film is getting released in theatres as well.
There's nothing quite like seeing your favourite movies on the big screen with other like-minded weirdos. A couple of weeks back I had the tremendous pleasure of seeing the original BTTF at the Hollywood Bowl with nearly 17,000 other fans. And it was fantastic.
We don't have details yet about just how many theatres around the US will be showing BTTF. Universal is urging people to "check their local listings" but we'll definitely keep you posted as we learn more.
As for the home release (on October 21, of course)? It sounds like it has some pretty neat extras. They will include:
- All New Original Shorts: Including Doc Brown Saves the World!, starring Christopher Lloyd.
- OUTATIME: Restoring the DeLorean: An inside look at the 2012 restoration of the most iconic car in film history.
- Looking Back to the Future: A 9-part retrospective documentary from 2009 on the trilogy's legacy.
- Back to the Future: The Animated Series: 2 episodes ("Brothers" and "Mac the Black") from the 1991 series featuring live action segments with Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown.
- Tales from the Future 6-Part Documentary
Please excuse our nerd excitement.
