The “Back to the Future Ultimate Trilogy“ is coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on October 20th, via Universal. The box set includes the three films “Back to the Future” (1985), “Back to the Future Part II” (1989), and “Back to the Future Part III” (1990). The films, directed by Robert Zemeckis & produced by Steven Spielberg, starred Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, James Tolkan, Billy Zane, and Thomas F. Wilson. The tech specs for the films include 2160p 4K presentations in the 1.85:1 aspect ratio with Dolby Vision, HDR10, and HDR10+ forms of High Dynamic Range along with Dolby Atmos sound. The release will come in the form of a “combo pack” with the Blu-ray Disc counterparts as well as digital code (copy) included for each film.
Now, this may be confusing consumers but there will be a total of three different releases of the trilogy on the 4K UHD Blu-ray format: a standard 4K UHD Blu-ray set, a gift set (exclusive to Amazon), and a SteelBook set (exclusive to Best Buy).

Another form will be the 35th Anniversary Limited Edition Trilogy SteelBook exclusive set at retailer Best Buy, which is now available for preorder (pictured below).
