AMC Theaters Releases Back to the Future in Theaters, Oct. 23 and 25

Back to the Future Is Back in Theaters!

Just in time to create a new generation of fans is the limited theatrical release of Back to the Future: AMC theaters will be showing two screenings of the film across the country on Oct. 23 and 25! It's hard to believe that this year marks the 25th anniversary of the film, which is a geek girl's dream for obvious reasons: time travel, love, and science — holla! And don't get me started about the sequel — if we can get hoverboards and flying cars by 2015, as the film predicted, it's going to be real fun getting to work.

It's also the film that almost never was. Well, not as we know it, at least. Before Michael J. Fox came on the scene, Eric Stoltz (who is rockin' it in Caprica, BTW) was originally cast to play Marty McFly. The Blu-ray edition of the 25th anniversary BTTF has original footage of Eric in the role and Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis explaining why they had to let him go. Eric ended up OK, landing the starring role in the '80s classic, Some Kind of Wonderful, shortly after.

To see footage of Eric as Marty McFly, keep reading.
