Today is October 21, 2014. In exactly one year, we’ll have Hoverboards, flying cars, Jaws 19 and a Cubs World Series victory. At least, that’s what Robert Zemeckis’ Back to the Future Part II surmised. And while it’s going to end up being totally wrong about all of it, it’s a date everyone is looking forward to.
2015 also marks the 30th anniversary of the first Back to the Future film, released on July 3, 1985. Much like we saw with Ghostbusters this year, plenty of celebrations are expected for the milestone from merchandise and screenings to documentaries and more. One new addition to the list is the announcement of special 30th anniversary screenings that’ll play at concert venues all over the world. There, the soundtrack of the film will be edited out so a full orchestra can perform Alan Silvestri‘s iconic score live. Even better? Silvestri is writing 15 minutes of new score for the performances. Read More »
