Great Scott! In 1985 Director Robert Zemeckis, Executive Producer Steven Spielberg and Producer/Screenwriter Bob Gale embarked on a three-part journey through time that broke box office records worldwide and catapulted Back to the Future into one of the most beloved trilogies in motion picture history.
In 1989, the filmmakers gave us a glimpse of the future in Back To The Future Part II as Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled to 2015…or, if our calculations are correct, October 21, 2015, to be exact. “The Future” has finally arrived.
Now, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment celebrates this once-in-a-lifetime date, as well as the 30th Anniversary of the groundbreaking first film, with three new releases debuting on October 20, 2015.

The marquee reads, “This time, it’s really, really personal” – directed by Max Spielberg.

October 21 is officially Back to The Future day, and with the first movie in the franchise about to celebrate it's 30th Anniversary, Universal Studios is pulling out all the stops. As any Bttf fan worth his salt knows, October 21, 2015 is the day that Marty and Doc go to in the future, as seen in Back to the Future Part II. And some of the artifacts from this fictional time period are becoming a reality. Earlier today, Pepsi announced that they are finally delivering their long-awaited Pepsi Perfect soda. And now, we have the official teaser trailer for Jaws 19.
We won't actually get to see Jaws 19. And after watching the teaser trailer, you'll probably agree that's for the best. The footage goes through the entire trilogy, offering the plots of Jaws 5 through Jaws 18, leading into this latest 'fictional' sequel. It sounds like Bruce the Shark and his brood have been through an awful lot, »
Surprising Back to The Future fans everywhere, Pepsi officially confirms the long-awaited creation of Pepsi Perfect, the famous soda Marty McFly orders in Back to the Future Part II, the second installment of one of the most beloved trilogies in motion-picture history. The fantastical cola, made famous by the film, will officially be available on October 21, 2015, paying homage to the date Marty McFly travels to in the future. Since 1989, Back To The Future enthusiasts have waited patiently to see how the future unfolds. Said Lou Arbetter, Senior Director of Marketing, PepsiCo.
"Pepsi fans asked and we heard them loud and clear. The Back to the Future trilogy was as big a moment in pop culture history then as it is now, 30 years later. We are excited to be part of this moment and to bring fans something only Pepsi could deliver - and there's no need to wait - the future is now! »
Now in his fifth decade of movie-making, you might assume that Robert Zemeckis’ stature as a director would make it easy to attract funding for a new project. Not so. His latest feature, The Walk, took a decade to get to cinemas, a decade during which multiple investors passed on a film they didn’t see as slotting in to a tried and tested category. Based on the true story of Philippe Petit’s 1974 high-wire walk between the twin towers of the World Trade Center, you can see their point. Part salute to the ineffable act of artistic creation, part theme park attraction, The Walk doesn’t pigeonhole easily. But then, Zemeckis’ films rarely do.
The enforced wait turned out to be fortuitous. In that ten years, digital and 3D technology »
Robert Zemeckis, director and co-writer of the classic '80s trilogy, has told Digital Spy that studio execs are constantly asking him to reboot the series - and he's enjoying telling them to make like a tree and get outta here.
"It's making them insane that we don't want to do another Back to the Future," said Zemeckis, who earlier revealed that he and co-creator Bob Gale wouldn't let a sequel or remake happen within their lifetime.
"It's like a pre-sold title for them - it would open gigantically [at the box office]. That's all that anyone cares about."
However, Christopher Lloyd will reprise his role as Doc Brown for a short film on the forthcoming 30th anniversary Blu-ray set. »
Amazon Prime subscribers will soon be able to go Back to the Future.
Robert Zemeckis's three beloved sci-fi movies are coming to the streaming service on Thursday (October 1) in celebration of the franchise's 30th anniversary.
Amazon Prime is making the trilogy available on its website, app and devices… for a limited time only.
Act fast! The Back to the Future movies will be available to stream just through October - unless you have a time-travelling DeLorean, of course!
The home video set is out on October 21 - which means that Amazon Prime actually has the jump by three weeks.
Christopher Lloyd is officially back in the DeLorean for a new Back to the Future 30th anniversary short film, Doc Brown Saves the World. But this is far from the first time he's portrayed the Doc outside of the classic '80s trilogy.
1. Back to the Future: The Ride (1991)
It became a mini-film in itself as Thomas F Wilson turned up as Biff to swipe the DeLorean and kick things into gear. The ride closed in 2007, although if you're willing to rack up the air miles it's still going strong at Universal Studios Japan.
2. Back to the Future: The Animated Series (1991-1992)
This Saturday morning cartoon series only made it to two seasons, but it did »
How brilliant is this? Telltale Games, well-known for taking such titles as The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones and creating original, compelling storylines in video game form, is now releasing Back to the Future: The 30th Anniversary Edition.
Fans of the Telltale series will know that this game actually came out about 5 years ago. So why is this so special? Two reasons. First, it's been 30 years since the series began and as Bob Gale, screenwriter and producer, so eloquently says, "There won't be a Back to the Future 4, we're not working on it." This means that this is the only sequel we will be getting. Second, anyone who played the first version didn't get to play »

Back to the Future: The Game - 30th Anniversary Edition is coming to soon to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
To celebrate the upcoming release, developer Telltale Games has unveiled a new trailer that showcases its updated textures and voice work from Biff Tannen's original movie actor - Tom Wilson.
The anniversary edition also includes in-game access to new content such as a behind-the-scenes video featuring interviews with Wilson, movie trilogy co-writer and producer Bob Gale, members of the development team and the voice of young Marty McFly.
Marty is then tasked with going back to 1931 to recruit a reluctant teenage Emmett Brown in order to save 1985's Doc from otherwise certain death.
We may not have hoverboards yet, but by Oct. 21, 2015, we will have a new “Back to the Future” short film, which features Christopher Lloyd’s inimitable Doc Brown going, well, back to the future to explain why the 2015 we’re living in looks markedly different from the version we saw in “Back to the Future II.”
To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the first film – and the aforementioned date, which has become known as “Back to the Future Day” thanks to Doc Brown and Marty McFly’s (Michael J. Fox) trip to a futuristic 2015 in “Bttf 2” – the entire trilogy is being released on Blu-Ray and DVD, along with the release of the “Bttf” animated series, which is bowing on DVD for the first time.
The new short, titled “Doc Brown Saves the World” will only be available with the 30th anniversary set. Watch a teaser for the new film below. »

Great Scott, Doc Brown's back! A sneak peek from the new short coming exclusively to the Back to the Future 30th Anniversary Trilogy Blu-ray and DVD has arrived. While we'll never get to see a Back to The Future remake, reboot or sequel in director Robert Zemeckis' lifetime, no one associated with the popular movie series has ever frowned upon Christopher Lloyd resuming the role of Doc Brown for various projects, short films, theme part rides and even an animated Saturday morning cartoon show. He's back at it again, with Doc Brown appearing in a new teaser for the Back to the Future 30th Anniversary Trilogy Blu-ray set.
In 1989, Director Robert Zemeckis, Executive Producer Steven Spielberg and Producer/Screenwriter Bob Gale gave us a glimpse of the future in Back to the Future Part II as Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled to 2015...Or, if our calculations are correct, »
Back to the Future celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2015, and now Doc Brown himself has returned in a brand new short film for the milestone.
Watch the first teaser of Christopher Lloyd's iconic eccentric back in action in 'Doc Brown Saves the World' below:
The full live-action short will feature on the upcoming Back to the Future 30th Anniversary Trilogy Blu-ray & DVD, out on October 21 - the exact date Marty McFly and Jennifer travel forward to in Part II.
The release will be accompanied by Back to the Future: The Complete Animated Series on DVD for the first time ever, and Back to the Future: The Complete Adventures, a combo of the trilogy and animated series with Flux Capacitor packaging.
30 geekiest things you never knew about the Back to the Future trilogy
I knew how it ended before I walked into the theater. After all, I've seen "Man On Wire," and it ended up on my ten best list for 2008, and I know how the story ends. Beyond that, I knew that I was looking at the state-of-the-art of what visual effects could accomplish in the year 2015 and not actual footage of an event in the '70s. Even so, the new Robert Zemeckis film "The Walk" made my hands sweat and my stomach ache for a solid 45 minutes, and I suspect it's going to be a big-screen sensation thanks to people going back to witness it several times. One of the truths of the new age of theatrical distribution is that you have to give an audience a reason to go to a theater and not just wait for a more convenient time and place to see a film.

The documentary film Back in Time is, at its heart, a look at the very real impact the Back to the Future movies have had on our culture. What was once a little idea that spawned a tightly-focused documentary has grown into something truly amazing over two years of filming. Back in Time is a cinematic monument to the vastness of the trilogy’s fandom. In addition to the footage and interviews revolving around the time machine itself, the crew found that simply by delving into the impact of the trilogy an epic journey began to unfold before them. The crew captured countless hours of footage during filming. From Steven Spielberg to Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, to the Sheas and Hollers, and from »

Get your flux capacitor-powered Deloreans ready this autumn, because Jason Aron’s “Back in Time,” an homage to the unparalleled genius of “Back to the Future,” which turned 30 years old this year, is coming. Read More: 'Back To The Future' Trilogy Getting Theatrical Re-Release The documentary started out as a tiny idea and has snowballed into a complete retrospective of the film’s worldwide legacy. Featuring interviews with Marty McFly himself, Michael J. Fox, writer Bob Gale, director and co-writer Robert Zemeckis (who says in the trailer, correctly, “I think it’s the best thing I’ve ever written”), co-star Lea Thompson, and a noteworthy cameo from Steven Spielberg, any fan of the franchise should be over-the-moon with such news. The film will be released on “Future Day,” October 21, 2015, the day that will hopefully put a certain internet meme to bed forever. It’s hard for this writer »

Just a little earlier today, a big story broke that Steven Spielberg is considering taking DreamWorks to Universal after his contract with Disney runs out, which happens after the director's next project, the family adventure The Bfg. An item that is wedged into this report is the fact that Steven Spielberg is very key on rebooting two extremely popular franchises. Yes, as blasphemous as it sounds, the director wants to remake both his 1975 directorial effort Jaws and 1985's Back to The Future, which he produced for director Robert Zemeckis. This is what THR had to say about this somewhat shocking news.
Ever since 2009, when Steven Spielberg's DreamWorks parted ways with Paramount, Disney has distributed the studio's films, but that may all come to an end when their deal expires next year. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the director's upcoming adaptation of Roald Dahl's The Bfg, which hits theaters July 1, 2016, will be the last film Disney releases through its contract with DreamWorks, which expires in August 2016. The report reveals that Steven Spielberg may bring DreamWorks over to Universal Pictures, after the Disney pact runs out.
Steven Spielberg has always had his offices on the Universal Pictures lot, even while his DreamWorks company had distribution deals with Paramount and Disney. The report also claims that Steven Spielberg was a "hands-on" executive producer on the studio's massive box office hit Jurassic World, and he is also a vital part of the studio's plans for the sequel, Jurassic World 2, and their future theme park plans for the franchise. »
