Here's Where You Can Watch Every Movie In The Back To The Future Trilogy

There are undoubtedly numerous films held in similar esteem, but you'd be genuinely hard-pressed to find a 1980s flick quite as universally adored as "Back to the Future." Directed by Robert Zemeckis, and released at the height of the 1985 summer movie season, the time-traveling sci-fi adventure found Michael J. Fox portraying 1980s high schooler Marty McFly, who accidentally zips back to the 1950s in a time machine built by his inventor pal Doc Emmett Brown (Christopher Lloyd). Once there, he desperately searches for a way home, and inadvertently becomes the object of his teen-aged mother Lorraine's (Lea Thompson) affection, thus threatening his own existence in the future.

Boasting high-brow humor, brainy paradoxical quandaries, and '50s nostalgia by the boatload, "Back to the Future" struck a chord with audiences of all ages upon release, becoming one of the decade's biggest hits (per Box Office Report). It also features a pair of show-stopping turns from Fox and Lloyd, both of whom returned in the film's equally entertaining, if less revered sequels. Those follow-ups — 1989's "Back to the Future: Part II" and 1990's "Back to the Future: Part III" — found Marty and Doc visiting the distant future and the Old West respectively, with each film serving as clever continuations to a story that arguably didn't need continuing.  

If you're looking to revisit the time-hopping adventures of Doc Brown and Marty McFly, the good news is that the "Back to the Future" trilogy is indeed available to stream via digital formats.

You can stream the Back to the Future trilogy, but it'll cost you a few bucks these days

And now for the bad news, which is that "Back to the Future," "Back to the Future: Part II," and "Back the Future: Part III" are not currently available on any of the major streamers. That'll likely come as a bit of a surprise as the films have pretty much become a mainstay of 1980s pop culture. But as of this writing, watching the "Back to the Future" films will require a little more work.

You can obviously still get eyes on the "Back to the Future" trilogy by renting each film through on-demand platforms such as iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, Vudu, Google Play, or even YouTube. That course of action will set you back a few bucks, however, with each film costing about $4 to rent. Likewise, you can always purchase each film outright at a cost of about $15 per. But if you're looking to own digital copies of the "Back to the Future" trilogy on the cheap, individual purchases are far from your best bet with iTunes packaging the films at the very reasonable cost of $24.99.

If you're so inclined, you can also easily pick up new and used copies of the "Back to the Future" flicks on Blu-Ray and DVD. Of course, you could also just wait for the trilogy to turn up on another streaming platform because that prospect is as inevitable as Biff Tannen (Thomas F. Wilson) getting manure dumped on his head.
