Up Close with Movie Props – /Film

Back to the Future Trilogy Featurette

The Back to the Future trilogy is getting re-released on home video yet again, but this time it will be in glorious 4K Ultra HD, the highest quality release of the trilogy yet. Thankfully, this isn’t just a casual re-release without any new bonus materials. Since this year marks the 35th anniversary of the original time travel adventure, there’s a new disc chock full of bonus features that no one has every seen before, and a sneak peek at one of them has just been revealed. Watch it below.

Back to the Future Trilogy Featurette

This clip comes from a tour of the Back to the Future exhibit at The Hollywood Museum with trilogy co-writer and producer Bob Gale. In this featurette, you’ll get a close look at some of the props used in all three of the movies, along with anecdotes and memories of how they came to be, and whether or not some of the future props turned out to have accurate predictions about the future.

For example, in the clip above, Gale recalls how they spoke to Jeffries Banknote, the real company that makes American currency, to find out how money might change in the future. They accurately predicted that the heads of the presidents would be bigger and that there will be magnetic strips and foil elements to help prevent forgery. But one thing that Back to the Future Part II didn’t get right was how much we’d rely on fax machines for information. But these fax machines are almost like tangible e-mails or texts, so maybe they deserve partial credit.

This is just a taste of all the special features you’ll find in the Back to the Future Ultimate Trilogy 4K box set. You can find full rundown of all the supplementary materials below, and you can still pre-order before it’s released next week.
