'Back to the Future' 25 years later
For the 25th anniversary of
Back to the Future, starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, 40 cities across America will screen the newly restored and re-mastered film, on October 23 and October 25.
Directed by Robert Zemeckis (
A Christmas Carol, Cast Away), these special screenings offer moviegoers a limited-release poster commemorating the 25th anniversary and events to re-create Marty McFly's week in 1955.
Dubbed a "special-effects comedy," the hit from 1985 takes a trip across space and time in an effort to see how McFly's parents lived in their youth. The film spent eleven weeks at number one at the US box office.
The film also starred Crispin Glover ( Alice in Wonderland), Elisabeth Shue ( Piranha 3D), Elijah Wood ( Lord of the Rings trilogy), Mary Steenburgen ( The Proposal), and Lea Thompson (Caroline in the City).
A week-long celebration is also planned, November 5-12, where fans can meet cast and crew, screen the film, visit original locations, see the time-machine DeLoreans in person, ride a hover board, and more:
Also for the occasion, the Back to the Future: 25th Anniversary Trilogy is being released on October 26, with the original film, and sequels II and III on Blu-ray and DVD.
Besides the films, the deluxe edition comprises more than two hours of featurettes. A new six-part retrospective documentary features interviews with the cast, crew and filmmakers. There is also production art, storyboards, behind-the-scenes, screen tests, outtakes, deleted scenes, archival footage, "Animated Anecdotes" with trivia, music videos by Huey Lewis and the News and ZZ Top.
Available through Amazon.com as a pre-order, it is number 25 on its sci-fi movie chart.
