Get a Sneak Peak at the Legendary Eric Stoltz Footage from Back to the Future!

by at . Comments

Universal has released a sneak peek at one of the special features from their forthcoming Back to the Future 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray box set, which hits store shelves on October 26th! And it's not just any special feature, it's the legendary Eric Stoltz footage!

If you're not privy, back in 1984, when Back to the Future was originally filming, Michael J. Fox was unavailable due to obligations to the sitcom Family Ties, so the producers and director Robert Zemeckis chose to cast Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly. They shot for five weeks and got most of the movie in the can before they realized it just wasn't what they wanted, so they recast Fox, re-shot all of Marty's scenes and the movie went on to be one of the biggest hits of all time.

Now, for the first time,  you'll be able to catch a glimpse of what Back to the Future would have been like had Eric Stoltz stayed in the role! Check the video out below!
