Here’s a little something to make you feel old…
Back to the Future just celebrated its 25th Anniversary!
[Michael J.] Fox joined costars Christopher Loyd and Leah Thompson, director Robert Zemeckis and the soundtrack’s “Power of Love”- providing Huey Lewis at Guastavino’s in New York City last night to celebrate the movie and mark the new anniversary-edition release of the trilogy on DVD and Blu-ray.
And, a quarter-century later, Fox still can’t escape his iconic role.
“You’re walking in the street in Bhutan in the Himalayas and someone will go, ‘Marty McFly!'” said Fox.
“It’s so awesome. I mean really. The idea that we did something that people still want to celebrate, come out, have fun, show their kids and their grand kids. It’s a most gratifying experience,” added Thompson, who played Marty’s mom and brought her own teenage daughter along with her.
Not bad for a flick originally called Spaceman From Pluto.
The landmark building hosting the Back to the Future bash was decorated to look like the film’s clock, tower while partygoers marveled at a souped-up DeLorean parked out front, flux capacitor included.
“It’s great to have a film have a life and mean so much to so many people over so many years,” said Lloyd. “I’m very proud to be a part of this project.”
Did you know Eric Stoltz was almost Marty McFly? Apparently he wasn’t funny enough though, so in came Michael J. Fox.
