‘Back to the Future’ Movie Trilogy Free on Amazon Prime for One Month

Hello, McFly! All three “Back To the Future” films, starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, will be available for the month of October to Amazon Prime members to stream or download for no extra charge.

Under the pact with Universal Pictures, Amazon’s Prime Video will be the exclusive subscription-streaming home for the three “BTTF” films and marks the first time the films are available on a subscription VOD service for unlimited viewing.

This year is the 30th anniversary of the first “Back to the Future” — and in addition to that, Oct. 21, 2015, marks the exact day Marty McFly (Fox) and his girlfriend Jennifer (Elisabeth Shue) time-travel to in “Back to the Future Part II.”

“Back to the Future” has been voted No. 47 on IMDb’s user-voted list of the best movies of all time.

Besides adding exclusive content to push Amazon Prime signups, the e-commerce company is looking to promote the Blu-ray/DVD 30th anniversary bundle of the “Back to the Future” trilogy. Amazon is taking preorders now for the special edition, slated to be released Oct. 20.
