BACK TO THE FUTURE Is Coming Back To Theaters!! (But Only In The UK)!! Here's A Trailer For The Re-Release!!

Merrick here...
The first BACK TO THE FUTURE film is being re-released to UK theaters next month in conjunction with the picture's 25th anniversary, ahead of the whole trilogy's issuance on Blu-Ray. As far as we know, the film won't be re-appearing on big screens here in The States. HeyGuys posted the trailer for BTTF's UK re-release, which is embedded below and originates HERE.

Trilogy co-writer and producer Bob Gale recently spoke to HeyGuys about how "breathtaking" he thought the impending Blu-Ray versions of this film looked (their article should hit in a few weeks). That trilogy set, releasing late October (right around the time the ALIEN films hit Blu!?) is preorderable HERE . Wonder if the Blus will have any further material showing Eric Stoltz as Marty? Trippy...

    God I love this film. I've given a copy to any god-daughter, nephew etc aged 8 and above and they all totally adore it. It completely stands the test of time - in fact it's a load more exciting than most kids' films today, much as I love Harry Potter etc.

  • Sept. 9, 2010, 11:22 a.m. CST

    Well technically she wasn't his mom...

    by HarryKnowlesNonExistentInceptionReview

    ...she had yet to marry and become a mother to any of her children. Since Marty went back in time and prevented the woman who would become his mother from developing an interest in the man who would become his father, he was, from that point onward, basically existing in a state of quantum superposition (neither existing or not existing) until he manages to change history back to a similar course in which he would again definitely exist. Besides, Lea Thompson was super-hot back in the 80's.

    by boosebaster

    Surely that does the website in question more harm? Making your ads so fucking intrusive that users would rather block them altogether? Firefox has been shit for years now anyway. It's called "Best practice". AICN is not a backstreet cowboy-operation run from someone's basement so why does it still behave like one? "Respect? For our visitors? ARE YOU MAD?!"

  • Sept. 9, 2010, 12:45 p.m. CST

    by JMH1973

    Zemeckis mentioned in a commentary (Used Cars I think) that he doesn't believe in going back and tinkering with movies once they are released, that they exist in the time that they were made. Hopefully he'll stick to this belief and not ever release BTTF in 3D or with "new, improved" effects. It's amazing how the legacy of BTTF has remained intact thanks to this compared to how fractured the legacy of Star Wars is now with all the versions out there.

    Remake?

    by Dreamfasting

    Do you think a remake or alternate version of Back to the Future could/should be made in a couple of years to look at the differences between 2015 (the real 2015) and 1985? Does enough of a culture/tech gap exist to be able to tell the same story through the eyes of kids of today, just moved 30 years forward?

    by Darth_Tarantino

    "I always regretted how small the Hill Valley town square looked on screen. It was meant to be so much bigger, with more detail in the background so that you got the feeling of a real city. So we've gone back in there and added some new elements to the background, really hightened the sense of being in a 1950's city."

    The Eric Stoltz Footage

    by Cobb05

    Bob Gale said in an interview that when they were planing the DVD release, they thought about putting the Eric Stoltz footage in the bonus features. He said they decided against it, because it wasn't fair to Eric because he didn't do anything wrong, he just wasn't right for Marty. Bob and Bob just just ask Eric if he wants the footage included in the Blu ray discs. If he's cool with it, they should let it see the light of day. People want to see this footage.

    by Cobb05

    The movies could've literally gone anywhere. Now, I am a fan of part 2. I think from a storytelling perspective, having Marty be in 1955 with the Marty from the first movie, is awesome. It would've been cool if they weren't painted into a corner though cause who knows what could've happened.

    It does seem like the 50's and the 80's were farther apart than the 80's and today, and I don't just mean by that extra 5 years. Hell, the 70's and the 00's seem further apart.

    cultural/tech gap

    by tao_pilot

    I agree that the culture gap isn't as large today. I think a kid from today dropped into 1980 wouldn't stick out as much as Marty did in 1955. The tech gap, though, is just as big. I think our cell phones and ipods would be just as fantastical to someone in 1980 as Marty's camcorder and Walkman were to someone in 1955. And imagine a teenager from this year stuck in 1980 and freaking out because he CAN'T GET ON THE INTERNET!!!!

    BTTF was not made in the States.

    by MotherPussBucket

    It was made in California. I'll explain. Ask any travelling Californian where they are from and they will say 'California'. Ask any other American and they will say 'America' (or Ireland 'cos their great grandfather was Irish). But they'll all be wearing Canadian patches on their backpacks, just to further confuse you. To rescue BTTF from all this confusion, I hereby claim the bragging rights for the UK. To celebrate, I will be releasing a digitally remastered version of the original BTTF at selected UK cinemas this October.

    by theyreflockingthisway

    unless they set it in the 80's. Someone in 1955 seeing a DeLorean would be freaked out but would the same happen to someone in the 80's seeing a car from today? I highly doubt it. <br><br> I think today's technology would certainly impress people of the 80s but that's about it. I mean they had mobile phones, video games, computers, rock,rap and heavy metal music - oh and compact discs. The fact films today come on disc format probably wont impress them too much either - laser disc even existed back then. <br><br> Granted, it's all a lot more basic than what we have today but they still existed back then. <br><br> What would we have that would be the equivalent of a DeLorean, video camera, heavy metal music, skateboarding and plutonium that would be as shocking to someone in the 80s as those things are to someone in the 50s?

    by CreationistTechnophobicManiacs

    The first is, without a doubt, an all time classic. Part 2 and 3 aren't as masterful but I still really love them. What I love was all of the time hopping and multiple reality craziness of Part 2, something that a lot of people didn't seem to understand although it was always perefctly clear to me. Part 3 was just pure fun and I loved that they made it an old west flick. That just shook it up in a way that most trilogy's fail to do so.<br> <br>Anyway, I LOVE BTTF, always will and would KILL to see this on the big screen as I never got a chance to see the original in 85.

    Most of the technological changes of the last fifteen years have been the building of new virtual data systems. The external world hasn't changed all that much. Cars, planes and buildings aren't greatly different. And fashions seem to have been recycled and remixed more than anything else. <p> One small thing that IS noticeable is that women's hair looks much better. It can be styled and colored without leaving it looking dead and dry. Watch 80s movies like Working Girl and Wall St now, and all the women's hair looks terrible, and this after being attended to by Hollywood stylists.

I even posted it on my facebook page on August 22. That's over 2 1/2 weeks ago! It's sad when I can scoop aicn by 2 1/2 weeks. As for the Stoltz footage, it is supposed to be included in one of the features, not a standalone. Not sure if all of the footage is going to be included, but there is supposed to be some.

Seriously, man, it's like classic Star Trek mixed with Back to the Future with a touch of Empire Strikes Back at it's best. The one episode you MUST see before you die is called Blink and it's from series three of Nu-Who with Tennant. It's a fucking MASTERPIECE.

The Doctor is a peripheral character in the episode and follows Carey Mulligan around while she tries to solve a mystery. If you love Back to the Future as much as I do, you owe it to yourself to watch that fucking episode ASFUCKINGAP!!! I would not lie to you about this.

    Does anyone remember this scene from the original run?

    by Crimson Dynamo

    The original run back in the 80's had a scene I haven't seen since in any addition. It was the scene where Marty was trapped in the trunk of the car, and Biff's friends are like "We don't want to mess with a bunch of reefer heads." When they finally get Marty out of the trunk, he is about to run off, but he stops, takes a hit of one of the band member's joints, then runs off. I remember this because it got a huge laugh from the audience. Does anyone else remember seeing that scene?

    Eric Stoltz footage HAS been confirmed for new Blu-ray & DVD

    by Anime_Nut

    http://bit.ly/dgYcQv<p> This was reported way back in June. Bob Gale himself told BTTF.net, "And since everyone wants to know, there are three very brief snippets of Eric Stoltz incorporated into one of the documentaries.”<p> What we still don't know is WHICH scenes we'll see. I think Twin Pines Mall parking lot is virtually guaranteed. I also hope to see any of his scenes with Crispin Glover, just to see how they played off each other.

    Aurthur C. Clark said it best (re: technological gap)

    by Playkins

    In (I believe) 3001, ACC said that someone from an advanced technological age wouldn't freak out if dropped into a more advanced age because advances in technology would be expected. If you took someone from say, 1000 BC and dropped them into our modern age, they'd be likely to freak out because they have absolutely no frame of reference. They'd have a heart attack when they hear voices coming out of a box. It would be like sorcery to them.<P> As far as BTTF goes, the 50s were essentially before the electronic age. People really didn't know anything about computers, even science in the atomic age was still in its infancy. There's enough of a technological leap for someone from 1985 to seem sufficiently sophisticated.<P> That being said, I think about half of what made BTTF so popular was that kids and adults alike could identify with it. It was discovery to kids and nostalgia for adults. Doesn't anyone remember asking their parents if that was what the 50s were like? In this way, a modern BTTF featuring a 2015 time-traveler going back to 1985 could be just as compelling. Why not have a Part 2 trilogy where Marty's kid goes back to 1985 after he finds one of Doc Brown's time machines somewhere? The second film described divergent timelines, and we never saw the "repaired" 2015. Who's to say what it would be like?

    No 'puters in FX back in 1987.

    by Kaitain

    The genesis of many modern-day computer effects shots was software created for a film in 1986. The first movie that most people saw that made them very aware of CG effects was Terminator 2, but if you follow the path back, you go through (fairly obviously) The Abyss in 1989, and (less obviously) Star Trek IV in 1986. Specifically, if you watch the time travel sequence, you will see statue-like likenesses of the crew members morphing into one another. Although Tron and The Last Starfighter had pioneered computer-based effects earlier, Star Trek IV is an unsung turning point where the tech started to be used to represent human likenesses.

    Actually I was using Firefox in early 2005. Before, like, pretty much anyone. The reason I don't anymore is because it's been shite for the last few years. It shuts itself down, then when you try and start it again it says "Firefox is already running" when it clearly isn't. This has happened on my last two PCs and is a well-documented bug with later versions. And I don't mind seeing the ads, I might actually be interested. I just don't need my fucking eyes, ears or entire cortex raped by them. The user shouldn't have to block entire sections of a website just because whoever runs the website does not understand best practice - that is, the user chooses whether they want to view / hear the ad or not. If everyone blocks the ads, many content websites would go out of business.

    I have Firefox and have also used it for many years. Yes it does crash from time to time. It's still the best browser. Maybe your PC or OS is the problem. Why anyone would voluntarily subject themselves to ads when they know how to get rid of them and then complains about it, I cannot fathom. If that upsets you, then just think yourself lucky that you have nothing worse to whine about like a big girl.

    WRT Firefox (which is still my preferred browser) I also have had the crashing (although not so much with more recent versions) and notice that it's already running. I had to open the task manager and close the running file there.

    Reason for UK: Universal local office

    by filmcoyote

    The Universal UK office experimented with doing new digital releases in conjunction with their home ent department last year. They showed The Blues Brothers, American Werewolf In London, Spartacus, The Thing and a couple of others in new digital prints just for single days at certain cinemas. This fuelled the idea to do more and the first one was obvious: 25 anniverdary re-release of BTTF. That's why they are doing it in the UK. The studio was sceptical that anyone would pay to see old movies in the cinema to warrant the costs of the digital drives but the UK office proved they could make it cost effective. The studio brass just think we all want to watch the dross they turn out these days. Thankfully for British audiences there are enough fans of old movies working in the sales department at Universal UK that they fought for the chance to prove they could do it and they got it done. Don't imagine this is coming from high up!

    The three best time travel movies

    by Kaitain

    ...are The Terminator, Twelve Monkeys and La Jetee. (12M is of course a big budget revamp of La Jetee.) <p> I also think the bootstrapping sequence at the police station in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure is absolutely fucking great.

    Firefox

    by Kaitain

    "Actually I was using Firefox in early 2005. Before, like, pretty much anyone." <p> Mozilla created Firefox mainly by reverse-engineering Opera, which has had tabbed browsing, built-in pop-up killing etc. since around 2000. So Firefox users are Johnny-Come-Latelys to the "proper browser" party. Opera has been the true innovator for most major features imo. It isn't designed to be as extensible as Firefox, but it runs better straight out of the box and isn't the flabby mess that Firefox has become.

    What's happened to Firefox? For the past three years it's been worse than IE. There's just no decent browsers out there anymore.
