There has already been an exhaustive coverage of Back to the Future leading up to today’s release of the 25th Anniversary Blu-ray Edition, but who doesn’t want more of Marty McFly, Doc Brown, and Einstein? And so, hot off the heels of our sneak peek at two clips from the Blu-ray set last week, and footage of a young Eric Stoltz portraying Marty, we are pleased to bring you the Back to the Future 25th Anniversary Blu-ray/DVD Press Conference.
Most of the cast, including Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, and Lea Thompson, talk about the film – fondest memories, the social impact the film has had, etc. While the footage doesn’t reveal anything new (except that Lea Thompson doesn’t think her pink dress from the film is appropriate for her daughters) it’s always fun to see the gang back together. Check it out after the jump.
Back to the Future is easily one of my favorite films. Boasting terrific performances, a sharp script, and a terrific Alan Silvestri score, Robert Zemeckis’ 1985 film is deserving of its status as a classic.
