10 Fictional Dates from Movies Everyone Should Know

Throughout movie history, various dates within them have taken on special meaning thanks to pop culture.

Some dates had crucial roles in plots to films providing settings while others have become unique one-liners that have become part of the general lexicon.

Here are 10 fictional dates from movies everyone should know.

  • November 5, 1955 (Back to the Future)

    A true red-letter date, indeed.

  • March 24, 1984 (The Breakfast Club)

    On this fateful day, a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal served detention, and teen films were never the same.

  • April 25 (Miss Congeniality)

    Honestly, Miss Rhode Island isn’t wrong.

  • July 4, 1996 (Independence Day)

    “Perhaps, it’s fate today is the fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom.” Independence Day is so delightfully over the top, and this scene below perfectly encapsulates its melodrama.

  • August 29, 1997 (Terminator 2: Judgement Day)

    “On August 29, 1997, it’s gonna feel pretty f—ing real to you too!” A very dark scene, but on the plus side, there wasn’t an apocalypse in reality. So, yay?

  • February 14, 2016 (Ghostbusters II)

    “Valentine’s Day. Bummer.”

  • December 25, 1985 (Rocky IV)

    AKA: The day Rocky Balboa ended the Cold War. [Cues John Cafferty’s “Hearts on Fire”]

  • December 24, 1988 (Die Hard)

    [Insert Die Hard is a Christmas movie rant here.]

  • April 8 (Empire Records)

    “We mustn’t dwell. No, not today. We can’t. Not on Rex Manning day!”

  • October 3 (Mean Girls)

    A truly momentous date in all of cinema.
