There’s no doubt that Back To The Future is one of the most iconic films released in the 1980’s. It’s themes and ideals still resonate with audiences today, all these years later. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the film’s release and what better what to celebrate it, then to get a behind the scenes look at what went into the making of this fantastic film.
The documentary Back In Time, directed by Jason Aron, does just that. With interviews with Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thomson, Dan Harmon, Robert Zemeckis, Huey Lewis and Steven Spielberg (just to name a few), the doc takes us on a behind the scenes tour of the making of Back To The Future, as well as showcasing the lasting impression the film has made, not only on those involved in production, but on those people who fell in love with it in the first place.
Gravistas Ventures has released a theatrical trailer for the film, which you can check out here:
“The documentary film Back in Time is, at its heart, a look at the very real impact the Back to the Future movies have had on our culture. What was once a little idea that spawned a tightly-focused documentary has grown into something truly amazing over two years of filming. Back in Time is a cinematic monument to the vastness of the trilogy’s fandom. In addition to the footage and interviews revolving around the time machine itself, the crew found that simply by delving into the impact of the trilogy an epic journey began to unfold before them. The crew captured countless hours of footage during filming. From Steven Spielberg to Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, to the Sheas and Hollers, and from James Tolkan and Lea Thompson to Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox, Back in Time features interview after interview that simply must be seen.”
Back To The Future, and its subsequent sequels were a huge part of my childhood. I am excited to check it out because I think it’s incredibly interesting to see what went in to making such an iconic piece of movie history. A glimpse behind the scenes is always fascinating and I love to see so much enthusiasm for something that I love as well. It’s infectious.
Not to mention, the talent that was involved in this film is absolutely incredible and it’s always great to hear from someone like Steven Spielberg. This documentary looks like a must see for any fan of the 80’s film, whether they originally saw it as a wide-eyed kid in the theater, or have been introduced to it more recently, most likely by someone who was a wide-eyed kid in the theater 30 years ago.
Back In Time is set for limited theatrical release on October 21, 2015, but you can also check it out on VOD.
