In celebration of its 35th anniversary, Back to the Future is getting a brand-new Blu-ray box set later this year. For the first time, you’ll be able to watch the adventures of Marty McFly and Doc Brown in 4K UHD. Back to the Future: The 35th Anniversary Trilogy arrives October 20, with Amazon, Best Buy, and Target each having exclusive editions to pre-order.
If you pre-order from Amazon, you’ll get a replica hoverboard collectible, while Best Buy’s edition comes with three steelbook cases instead. When placed beside one another, they create an image of the famous DeLorean time machine. Each set comes with 4K UHD Blu-ray discs, standard Blu-ray, and digital copies of each film. Amazon and Best Buy are both selling the box set for $70.
Back to the Future has received multiple box sets in the past, but along with the 35th Anniversary set being in 4K for the first time, you’ll also get more than an hour of new special features on the bonus disc. The 35th Anniversary set contains the hours of bonus features included in previous releases, too, such as original shorts, commentaries, deleted scenes, interviews with the cast and crew, and more.
For those who are interested in the new collection but don’t have a need for 4K Blu-rays, Target has a standard Blu-ray box set–with the hoverboard replica–available to pre-order for $43. Take a peek at the exclusive editions below.
