This is the revised and expanded edition that came out in 2020, thirty-five years after the first film’s release.
Harper Design has the book shrink-wrapped before shipping it to stores, and with good reason. It’s loaded with removable reproductions of props from the films.
In addition to the photos and props, writers Michael Klastorin and Randal Atamaniuk take us behind the scenes, detailing every aspect of the creation of the trilogy.
We get storyboards, preproduction paintings, discarded poster art ideas, memos between those involved, an insight into early drafts of the script, exclusive interviews, etc.
We also get the inside scoop on the firing of the original Marty actor, Eric Stoltz, after seven weeks of filming.
And we get the details on how Michael J. Fox was thankfully brought onboard, despite already having a full schedule with FAMILY TIES.
After the three films, there’s even a section that talks about the animated series from the ’90s, and the more recent IDW comics. It also documents the BACK TO THE FUTURE hype from 2015 when we finally caught up to the time Marty and Doc traveled to in the second movie.
Nice sized, at 11 x 9.5 inches, 238 pages, and exploding with props and hundreds of photos, BACK TO THE FUTURE – THE ULTIMATE VISUAL HISTORY is a must-have for any fan of this trilogy.
