Back To The Future 25th Anniversary DVD In Stores Today - October 26, 2010

NEW YORK - OCTOBER 25: (L-R) Actors Mary Steenburgen, Christopher Lloyd, Robert Zemeckis, Michael J. Fox and Lea Thompson attend the 'Back to the Future' 25th anniversary trilogy Blu-Ray release at Gustavino's on October 25, 2010 in New York City. (Photo by Bryan Bedder/Getty Images)
Today is the day that Back To The Future fans have been waiting for. The big Blu-ray and DVD release. The release also falls on the day of the 25th anniversary of the movie. I still can't believe it has been 25 years since the movie was released. I am thankful to have seen all three of the movies in the theaters in their original run. I am completely jealous of the people that are getting to go and see the movie in theaters again over the last several days. Definitely a bummer that we have no AMC theaters in the area. There is a big press tour going on with the release which is and has been fun to keep track of. If you aren't familiar with what all is on the new DVD release, here they are.
