New Back to the Future Poster for UK's Theatrical Re-Release
From time to time I wonder what it would have been like to be caught up in the world of movie news during the times of Star Wars and Indiana Jones. Unless (heaven forbid) a remake of those films comes along, my writing on those topics is usually limited to pop culture references and random regurgitation of videos and infographics. However, today I'm lucky enough to direct your attention to a brand new (yet familiar) poster via Empire for Back to the Future, a favorite of mine which is getting a theatrical re-release this October in the United Kingdom only to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Marty McFly's adventures through time.
Don't forget that in addition to this re-release, the Back to the Future Trilogy on Blu-Ray arrives in October!
The poster uses imagery reminiscent of Drew Struzan's original posters (including the famous stylized title font) but with a sharper photographic edge. Honestly, since this is one of my favorite movies of all-time, I'm beyond frustrated that the US won't be privy to a theatrical re-release of this classic flick. I mean if Grease gets a damn sing-along theatrical re-release (after it already hit theaters again over ten years ago) then why the hell shouldn't Back to the Future get the same respect here in the US? While there are special events like We're Going Back: Celebrating the 25th Anniversary being held in Burbank, those of us in the US will just have to settle for the Blu-Ray release of the trilogy when it hits shelves in October. That's not too bad, is it?
