'Back to the Future' to Hit Theaters Again ... But Only in the UK

*'Back to the Future' to Hit Theaters Again ... But Only in the UK*



Here's news to brighten the moods (if moods actually needed brightening or lightening): Robert Zemeckis' Back to the Future trilogy, already scheduled for a feature-rich Blu-Ray set on October 26th, now has an 80s-style trailer to remind fans of the pending release (as if they/we needed any reminders), courtesy of Empire Online. Even better? The Back to the Future trilogy will get a theatrical re-release in early October to coincide with the release of the Blu-Ray set (though apparently only in the UK).



For those not in the know (and how could you be not in the know?), the Back to the Future trilogy is a pop cultural milestone for (late) twenty-, thirty-, and forty-something film geeks. It has everything a film geek could want: time travel, comedy, action, Michael J. Fox in a star-making turn as the lead character (and then some), Marty McFly, a never better Christopher Lloyd as Dr. Emmett Brown, genius inventor of the time machine (a flying DeLorean), Lea Thompson as Marty's future mother, Loraine Baines, and Crispin Glover as his future father, George McFly. Over three films, Marty traveled back to the mid-fifties, the far future (2015), and the Old West.
