War Games

Beverly Hills, CA: United Artists, 1983. Vintage US one sheet poster for the 1983 US film. The film was nominated for three Academy Awards.

A film steeped in Cold War anxiety. Teenage hacker David Lightman (Matthew Broderick) is in search of an amusing video game when he stumbles across a supercomputer that is programed to predict and react to possible nuclear war scenarios. Believing the program to be a game, David inadvertently launches a simulated attack on the United States which the computer misinterprets as an actual attack. When he realizes what has happened, David and the military scramble to stop the impending disaster.

Shot on location in Colorado, Washington, and California.
