Back to the Future films will light up theaters again this October

back to future theater the
Back to the Future is coming back to theaters this October to help celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the original Marty McFly adventure. All three films in the Back to the Future trilogy will land in theaters starting October 21, 2015 which is, coincidentally, the exact same day that Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) traveled to in Back to the Future Part II.

The fact that we’re now living in the actual future featured in the films is both extremely cool, and, if you’re familiar with the cinematic version, extremely disappointing considering flying cars are not even close to coming to fruition — but we digress.

Back to the Future was directed by Robert Zemeckis, with Steven Spielberg as Executive Producer and Bob Gale as Producer/Screenwriter. The movie was a smash hit, breaking box office records, and spawning two sequels to complete the highly popular trilogy. The movies followed Doc and Marty’s adventures traveling into the past, future, present, and back again, disrupting events that could change their lives and futures of those they love. The pair also got to see cool stuff from the future year 2015 along the way, of course, like those hoverboards. (At least we’re making a modicum of progress there.)

In addition to bringing the films back to the big screen, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment will also be announcing three new home releases on October 20: the Back to the Future 30th Anniversary Trilogy, including all three movies plus a new bonus disc with more two hours of content; Back to the Future: The Complete Animated Series, which will feature all 26 episodes of the  short-lived show from the early ’90s for the first time on DVD; and Back to the Future: The Complete Adventures, which will include all three movies, the complete animated series, a new bonus disc, a 64-page book, and collectible “Flux Capacitor” packaging that lights up.

In the bonus disc are new original shorts, including Doc Brown Saves the World; plus an inside look at the 2012 restoration of the DeLorean from the movie; a 9-part retrospective documentary from 2009; a Q&A with Michael J. Fox; behind-the-scenes footage; music videos; audio commentaries, and more.

In addition to tall that, Universal Music Enterprises is reissuing the 30th Anniversary picture disc vinyl soundtrack, which will be available on October 16.

Great Scott! We can’t wait.
