On July 3, 1985 the entertainment world was forever changed with the release of Stephen Spielber and Robert Zemeckis’s original film Back To The Future. The film featured a small-town California teen Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) who would go on to star in two more films in the series. We all by now know the full story behind the back to the future franchise as I’m sure anyone reading this has at least seen one of the films if not all 3 multiple times, unless you have been living in an alternate universe.
Throughout the 2000’s and 2010’s we saw a large number of prequels, remakes and retakes on popular films from earlier times. The Star Wars franchise which was recently purchased by Disney stands out as the single most remixed and prequeled and sequeled film franchise of all times. But some people have began to wonder if Stephen Spielberg will ever revisit the Back to the Future franchise and reboot or create Prequels for it in 2020 and beyond. This is a very touchy subject amongst members of the film community and avid Back to the Future fans worldwide as many feel the film series should never be remade or attempted to be take in a othe etiology than that of which it currently lies.
I hope there is never an attempt to make another Back to the Future film, some classic films you just have to leave untouched out of fear of ruining them forever.
Below is an artist rendition of a 4th Back to the Future film poster and although it carries many cues of the original posters it does invoke a great sense of nostalgia just seeing that classic logo with the Roman numeral IV!
Roads, where we’re going we dont need roads.
As much as I love the Back to the Future Trilogy and Franchise and view it as modern cinematic Art. I am open to seeing a prequel or fourth film, as long as it is headed up by Stephen Spielberg himself and features Michael J. Fox and any of the members of the original casts that happen to still be living. What do you think? Would you want to see a NEW Back to the Future film or should the franshise be left alone?
