Huge ‘Back To The Future’ 30th Anniversary Celebration On The Horizon

After 30 years, the ‘Back to the Future’ is coming back to the forefront with big news and no, it’s not for the release of a forth installment.

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment announced on July 16th that a 30th anniversary Blu-Ray set would be released which would include all three movies, the animated series, and a 64 page book with information from the movies detailed inside. All the contents are sealed inside a handy light up “Flux Capacitor” box for the movie fans and collectors out there. Along with that, a new anniversary edition of the vinyl soundtrack will be released in physical and digital copies on October 16th, 2015.

If that wasn’t enough, UPHE also announced that ‘Back to the Future’ would be making a huge theater return. This isn’t for a forth installment, though. They decided that they would show the original trilogy in theaters for one day only – October 21st, 2015 – which happens to be the same day that the Blu-Ray collection is being released. The showtime and theater details aren’t available at the moment, as the event is still a few months out, but for those that are interested, continue checking local listings for showtimes.

Harbaugh Throws a Strike

Love or hate him, you do have to give Michigan Head Football Coach Jim Harbaugh credit for being one of the world’s most polarizing figures. From running practice without a shirt on o pulling car accident victims from wrecks, the man seems to do it all. Harbaugh was on hand at yesterday’s Detroit Tigers game against the Pittsburg Pirates to throw out the first pitch. When it was first announced that he would be throwing out the first pitch, many wondered if he would wear khakis and go shirtless. Well he did indeed wear khakis but he was not shirtless. He wore a Detroit Tigers Jersey and a Tigers hat.

Like with everything he does, Harbaugh took to the mound with enthusiasm and confidence to throw out the first pitch. Donning a Mark “The Bird” Fidrych jersey and a windup to match, Harbaugh delivered a pretty good pitch down the middle but it was a tad bit on the high side. Harbaugh stuck around for the game with his wife Sarah but the Tigers lost in extra innings. This is not the first time Harbaugh has been invited to a MLB facility. He was in Oakland last March wearing an A’s uniform.

Daniel Amen suggests there will be a lot of pressure on Harbaugh to right a sinking ship that is Michigan Football. The program has been in shambles for many years and through several coaches. If he is able to turn Michigan back into a powerhouse again, there will be no denying that he is something special.
