The 30th anniversary of Back to the Future took place back in 2015, which somehow feels like it was literal eons ago and only yesterday at the same time. I think it’s because even through multiple generations, Robert Zemeckis‘s time travel comedy has never really left the public consciousness. But to celebrate the film’s 35th anniversary later this year, the entire trilogy is finally getting a 4K release for the first time ever.
And while the new Back to the Future: The Ultimate Trilogy box set repackages plenty of existing bonus features, it also includes over an hour of brand new features, including the casting auditions of then-up-and-coming actors like Ben Stiller and Kyra Sedgwick. Get the details below. Read More »
If you’ve been to a movie theater in the United States during any period starting from the 1970s and lasting all the way up until today, there’s a very good chance you’re at least passingly familiar with the work of legendary poster artist Drew Struzan. His movie posters are some of the most iconic in history, and over the past few years, our friends at New York City’s Bottleneck Gallery has teamed up with him to translate some of his gorgeous paintings into screenprints.
Now Bottleneck is back with a screenprint of Struzan’s poster for the 1990 sci-fi western Back to the Future Part III. That’d be cool on its own, but even cooler is the fact that the site is also selling prints of Struzan’s alternate, unused designs for the movie’s poster. Get all the details below.

There are countless art prints for Back to the Future out there in the world, many of them for the original movie that introduced us to Marty McFly, Doc Brown and the time traveling DeLorean. But as a fan of the whole trilogy from director Robert Zemeckis, what I really like is when an artist creates a set of posters that represents the entire franchise with unifying imagery. Artist Andy Fairhurst has teamed up with Bottleneck Gallery for a new Back to the Future trilogy print set that satisfies all of that criteria. See it below! Read More »

Back to the Future co-writer Bob Gale has been filling out that movie trilogy’s universe in the pages of IDW comic books for years, but now a new comic series called Back to the Future: Tales from the Time Train is poised to answer a question that fans have been wondering about since the third film hit theaters in 1990: what exactly did Doc Brown mean by his final line in that movie trilogy?

Anyone who is a fan of the Back the Future trilogy knows that there are plenty of visual and narrative parallels shared between the three films. One of the most obvious examples is when Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) walks into the town square of Hill Valley. Throughout the course of the film franchise, Marty enters three versions of his hometown that are very different from the one he’s used to early in the first film.
A new video essay takes footage from these sequences in Back to the Future and compares all five versions of Hill Valley side-by-side. The parallels aren’t anything new, but there is something very cool about seeing the footage compared side-by-side so you can see just how similar the Hill Valley sequences are.

The celebration that was Back to the Future Day has come and gone, and after all the love and nostalgia that came out for the time traveling franchise yesterday, it’s only fair to follow it up with some lighthearted jabs by way of an Honest Trailer for the entire trilogy.
The first Back to the Future is a perfect movie, so Honest Trailers doesn’t really have much to nitpick on the filmmaking side of things. Instead, they turn their focus on how the sequels are just a repeat of the same formula and point out some of the uncomfortable racism that exists in the past, not to mention the incestuous plot point between Marty McFly and his mom.
