‘Tis raining Michael J.Fox news this week (you can read about the Foxster’s possible appearance on the upcoming “Teen Wolf” TV series here) my friends.

Announced over night : “Back to the Future” is returning to AMC theaters!

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Bob Zemeckis’ classic, AMC is going to be holding 2 special screenings of the digitally remastered original on 158 screens across 40 cities.

The screenings will be held Saturday October 23rd at 12:30PM and Monday October 25th at 7:00PM (the night Marty went back in time).

All guests will receive a full-sized poster commemorating the 25th anniversary limited release of the movie with their ticket purchase, while supplies last.

Each theatre will also have special movie-related giveaways prior to the movie as a part of the experience. We’re excited to bring this digitally remastered film back for a new generation to see the film as it was intended.

Also, I notice BTTF.com has a sneak peek at another of the extra features here – one on how they recreated the ‘dance sequence’ for “Back to the Future II”. Interesting.

I saw “Back to the Future” in sneak previews. As there wasn’t a teaser trailer to speak of (well, there was, but for numerous reasons, it was footage free), because Robert Zemeckis still only had one hit under his belt at the time (1984’s wonderful “Romancing the Stone”), and since Michael J.Fox was off filming “Family Ties Vacation” in London, thus ruling himself out of promotional duties for the film, Universal previewed the film a few weeks leading up to it’s July 3rd, 2005 release date. Our local cinema at the time was previewing “Back to the Future” with John Hughes’ “Weird Science” (I know, amazing double feature, right!?). We knew what the former was, that’s the reason we were there, but all my little girly friend and I knew about the former was that “it starred Alex from Family Ties” and that Steven Spielberg, then of “E.T” and “Gremlins” fame, had had something to do with it. I imagine we might also have heard Huey Lewis’ “Power of Love” on the radio – I think it had been out quite a while before “Future” hit screens.

Anyway, I remember loving it to bits. And I remember recommending it to schoolmates, uncles, aunties, the guy working the grill at “Ollie’s Trollies”… anyone that would listen. I remember fondly that, about a week after I saw the film, there was a huge “Back to the Future” billboard put up in the carpark of the main shopping center. It was quite in-your-face. No way anyone was going to miss it. And around that time, the first reviews – then, pretty much, TV only – started to pop up. Anyway… it became a phenomenon in such a short amount of time.
