Back to the Future Cast to Reunite for 2020 TCM Classic Film Festival

-

Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will kick off the 11th annual TCM Classic Film Festival on Thursday, April 16th with a 35th anniversary screening of the seminal science fiction film Back to the Future. In attendance will be Back to the Future cast members Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson along with co-writer and co-producer Bob Gale. This will also be the world premiere of a new 4k remaster of the film. The 2020 TCM Classic Film Festival, held in the heart of Hollywood April 16th-19th, will center around the theme “Grand Illusions: Fantastic Worlds on Film.”

Celebrated actor Michael J. Fox stars as Marty McFly, the high school sidekick to eccentric scientist Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) who finds himself mixed up in a time-shattering chain reaction in the film (buy here) that kicked off an international blockbuster franchise. The film was a box office hit that went on to win an Academy Award, get a mention in Ronald Reagan’s 1986 State of the Union address, and inspire two sequels, an animated series, theme park attractions, consumer products and video games, as well as a soon-to-come musical.

“Like virtually everyone else of my generation, I saw Back to the Future when it was released in 1985 and within an instant, the story, the characters, the music, and the car, of course, became critical touchstones in my personal cinematic universe,” said Ben Mankiewicz, TCM primetime anchor and official host of the TCM Classic Film Festival.

Mankiewicz added: “And those actors – Michael J. Fox, Lea Thompson, Crispin Glover, and Christopher Lloyd – forever carved themselves into an 80s-movie version of Mount Rushmore. Step aside John McClane; move over Ferris Bueller; Marty McFly – the brainchild of Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale – is the definitive character of the decade.”

For the 11th consecutive year, thousands of movie lovers from around the globe will descend upon Hollywood for the TCM Classic Film Festival. The 2020 festival is set to take place Thursday, April 16 – Sunday, April 19, 2020. You can learn more about the festival here.
