Amanda Lynn Petrin Biography & Facts

The following is an overview of events in 1985 in film, including the highest-grossing films, award ceremonies and festivals, a list of films released and notable births and deaths. Highest-grossing films (U.S.) The top ten 1985 released films by box office gross in North America are as follows: Context The year was considered an unsuccessful one for film. Despite a record number of film releases, many films failed at the box office, and ticket sales were down 17% compared with 1984. Industry executives believed the problem, in part, was a lack of original concepts. Films about fantasy and magic failed, as audiences leaned towards science-fiction. Janet Maslin said the fault for this lay partly with Steven Spielberg, who had created such a successful template with films like E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and Close Encounters of the Third Kind that many fantasy films had imitated them. There was also a saturation of youth-oriented films targeted at those under 18. Executives were not fond of these films, but the financial rewards were too significant to ignore. The few films aimed at older audiences, like Cocoon, were surprise successes. Only Back to the Future and Rambo: First Blood Part II were successful blockbusters, earning more than double the box office of Cocoon. Films offering escapism and pro-America themes like Rambo: First Blood Part II and Rocky IV had also fared well.The glut of youth-targeted films like Return to Oz and The Black Cauldron, and science-fiction comedies like Weird Science, Real Genius, and My Science Project had resulted in a string of failures. Executives said that the films were all very similar and marketed in the same way, offering no variety for audiences. Events June 5 – The Chicago Cubs play the Atlanta Braves in a baseball game at Wrigley Field. Excerpts from the broadcast later pin this date as the day featured in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. December 3 – Roger Moore steps down from the role of James Bond after twelve years and seven films. He is replaced by Timothy Dalton.Awards Palme d'Or (Cannes Film Festival): When Father Was Away on Business (Otac na službenom putu), directed by Emir Kusturica, YugoslaviaGolden Lion (Venice Film Festival): Vagabond (Sans toit ni loi), directed by Agnès Varda, France / U.K.Golden Bear (Berlin Film Festival): Die Frau und der Fremde (The Woman and the Stranger), directed by Rainer Simon, East Germany Wetherby, directed by David Hare, United KingdomNotable films released in 1985 United States unless stated # 28 Up, a documentary film - (U.K.)A Adieu Bonaparte, directed by Youssef Chahine, starring Michel Piccoli - (France/Egypt) The Adventures of Mark Twain, starring James Whitmore After Hours, directed by Martin Scorsese, starring Griffin Dunne, Rosanna Arquette, Catherine O'Hara, Teri Garr, Linda Fiorentino, John Heard, Verna Bloom, Cheech Marin, Tommy Chong Agnes of God, directed by Norman Jewison; starring Jane Fonda, Anne Bancroft, Meg Tilly Alamo Bay, directed by Louis Malle, starring Ed Harris and Amy Madigan Alice in Wonderland, TV film, starring Natalie Gregory, Sid Caesar, Carol Channing, Sammy Davis, Jr., Telly Savalas, Ringo Starr The Alley Cat (Le Matou) - (Canada) American Flyers, starring Kevin Costner, David Marshall Grant, Rae Dawn Chong, Alexandra Paul American Ninja, starring Michael Dudikoff Angry Harvest (Bittere Ernte), starring Armin Mueller-Stahl - (West Germany) Anne of Green Gables, starring Megan Follows - (Canada) Arjun, starring Sunny Deol and Dimple Kapadia - (India) The Assam Garden, starring Deborah Kerr and Madhur Jaffrey - (U.K.) Asterix Versus Caesar (Astérix et la surprise de César) - (France) The Aviator, starring Christopher Reeve, Rosanna Arquette, Jack WardenB Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend, starring Sean Young, William Katt and Patrick McGoohan Back to the Future, directed by Robert Zemeckis, starring Michael J.
