Universal announces Back To The Future: The Ultimate Collection on 4K
In 1985 director Robert Zemeckis teamed up with Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd to deliver one of the most beloved films of all time Back to the Future. The film not only worked but spawned two sequels and delivered one of the few time travel stories that actually worked.
If you have never traveled through time in a DeLorean before the film follows Marty McFly, a typical American teenager of the Eighties, is accidentally sent back to 1955 in a plutonium-powered DeLorean "time machine" invented by a slightly mad scientist. During his often hysterical, always amazing trip back in time, Marty must make certain his teenage parents-to-be meet and fall in love - so he can get back to the future.
In the second installment of the franchise aptly titled Back to the Future Part II, Marty McFly has only just gotten back from the past, when he is once again picked up by Dr. Emmett Brown and sent through time to the future. Marty's job in the future is to pose as his own son to prevent him from being thrown in prison. Unfortunately, things get worse when the future changes the present.
In the final installment, Back to the Future Part III, stranded in 1955, Marty McFly receives written word from his friend Doctor Emmett Brown, as to where he can be found the DeLorean time machine. However, an unfortunate discovery prompts Marty to go to his friend's aid. Using the time machine, Marty travels to the old west where his friend has run afoul of a gang of thugs and has fallen in love with a local schoolteacher. Using the technology from the time, Marty and Emmett devise one last chance to send the two of them back to the future.
There will be three collections released including a 35th Anniversary Trilogy Limited Edition 4K Gift Set, 35th Anniversary Trilogy Limited Edition Blu-ray Gift Set, and the 35th Anniversary Trilogy Limited Edition 4K. Each of these sets not only feature the films but a ton of bonus content including audition tapes, featurettes, and so much more with the bonus content varying depending on the specific set.
This will no doubt be a must have for fans of the series. Travel back in time and grab your copy of the 35th Anniversary Trilogy Limited Edition when it hits 4K on October 20th from Universal Home Entertainment.
