Travel Back To The Future For The 25th Anniversary!

By MikeFollow on Twitter

This weekend, audiences have the opportunity to watch Back to the Future on the big screen

for its 25th anniversary. To help you gear up for this historic occasion, we’ve compiled some fun content related to the classic time-traveling trilogy. Take a look! After all, it is your density. I mean…your destiny:

The Original Trailer

There aren’t enough trailers these days that feature Huey Lewis & The News. It’s a shame.

Eric Stoltz as the Original Marty Mcfly
Michael J. Fox is so pivotal to the Back to the Future ensemble that it’s hard to believe he was the second choice as Marty Mcfly. Alas, he was, and there’s footage of the original Marty to prove it. Stoltz’s resemblance to Fox is eerie, and he’s a great actor, no doubt, but it’s clear that Zemeckis made the right call:

If you didn’t just watch that and go, “Oh, weeeiiirrd…” you should be stripped of your ‘Back to the Future fan’ title.

Go back in time to 2006 when Brokeback Mountain video mashups were all the rage. Can Doc and Marty keep their love affair a secret? This is heavy…

Power Laces
This is more of a Back to the Future Part II thing, but come on. Power Laces?! Everyone who has ever seen that movie in the history of forever wants a hoverboard, a self-aware jacket, and power laces. 1 out of 3 ain’t bad:
