Pretty cool. I knew BTTF was rumored to be coming this year but this was a pleasant surprise since the date and specs of a title this big usually get leaked out a few days or weeks before the actual studio press release.

With Universal, one always has to be leery of problems with picture quality.  Hopefully, the likes of Zemeckis and Spielberg will make them do it right.

Travis,


Every site was sitting on this news since late last week.


We were told not to release it until Monday @8:30am EST


I was very surprised none of it leaked out except for two

sites that jumped the gun this morning 10-15 minutes early.

I saw in another announcement that the image will retain the film grain too.

Yup, over at BTTF.com, Bob Gale said that the HD masters are beautiful and film-like. My mouth is salivating....

Isn't it nice to hear this directly from the filmmakers? I hope Universal is listening. It isn't just us fans that want film grain preserved.

The Digital Bis is also reporting that they've received news from www.bttf.com via Bob Gale that some of the Eric Stoltz footage will be on the new set! Words cannot express how excited I am to get my hands on this set.

I'm hoping that's just a slip case and inside each film has its own separate case with the original poster artwork. Even if it doesn't its still better then the dvd box set cover. That thing was ugly, especially the Canadian version with its horrible french text all over it. Anyone notice Elijah Wood gets mentioned in the press release like he has a big part in the films? Don't blink during the Cafe 80s scene or miss his very notable performance.

I couldn't agree more Tony.  U-Control is simply awful.

First of all, "you" really can't control anything.  You have to watch the entire feature just to access bonus content that could just as easily have been put on a menu page.


Still, looking forward to this BD.  Looks very promising other than this one item.

"Why are things so heavy in the future?  Is there a problem with the Earth's gravitational pull?" One of my all time favorite lines!

Good, just like the artwork on the laserdiscs! Each film had this same art, pretty much, of Marty and the Delorean with each character added per film. This is going to be a great Fall Season for BD releases, this and Forbidden Planet.
