HOLLYWOOD – The re-release of the Back to the Future trilogy will feature no new footage, sources revealed today.
Robert Zemeckis’ Back to the Future trilogy, which comprises Back to the Future, Back to the Future 2 and Back to the Future 3, will feature no new footage, despite the fact it is being released in cinemas and people who go and see it already of the blu-rays of the exact same films at home. Still starring Michael J. Fox in the iconic role of Marty McFly, the films will also retain the services of Christopher Lloyd who plays Dr. Emmett “Doc” Brown. Initially release thirty years ago, they will be re-released on October 21, 2015, the date which was punched into the time machine/Delorean and sent McFly into the future for the second film.
Zemeckis wheeled into the Studio Exec bungalow at precisely 8.45 pm:
It’s going to be great to see it on the big screen again. The quality is if anything better than the original release and we’re all very excited.
But are we going to have some new footage?
No, we didn’t want to go that route. Look George is a great pal of mine but I just think Back to the Future is a different creature and it’s like clockwork the way it all works. I just wouldn’t want to ruin that.
Yeah but just one scene with Jabba. At least that.
No, absolutely not. It wouldn’t make sense.
What about some sort of extra CGI stuff in the background?
I think the charm of these films is the fact they’re so much of their time. I mean, even our predictions are great. Some of them actually worked out. But we still don’t have flying cars.
So it’s basically the same three films with no additions or scenes. Gredo shoots first in this one?
No, there’s no Gredo. No guns become flashlights. No extra scenes, no added CGI.
But you must have changed Huey Lewis and the News.
But I HATE Huey Lewis and the News.
Back to the Future will be released in October, 2015.
