    WarGames would be seen as somehow prophetic, given that it's released just three months before Doomsday.

    Return of the Jedi, released just four months before Doomsday, wraps up the Star Wars trilogy, which TTL wouldn't likely be followed up on. OTL, the prequels only came to be in the late 1990s. Here, there may never even be a concept of such.

    Death Wish II is likely more divisive here, since Paul Kersey as a character was reinvented with the film, with no further follow ups.

    First Blood and Rambo as a whole would be seen as a long-lost fad.

    Scarface, like A Christmas Story, would be considered lost media, as it was supposed to be released in December. Heck, a lot of unreleased films, whether in the filming, production or post-production stage, probably won't see the light since the only copies of their existence got destroyed along with Hollywood and most of Southern Cal. Terminator and Ghostbusters, both pop-cultural franchises IOTL, would be only known by people who take interest in studying lost media and art.

    This would mean that Romero's zombie series the Dead franchise would probably not see revival. Day of the Dead entered production in 1984 and would be released in 1985 so it's completely butterflied away.

    For Star Wars, I would not see prequels coming even as the 21st century hit.

    Death Wish III was only produced in 1984 with filming in London and NYC. Butterflied away completely.

    I think any action movies like Rambo which was followed by one-man army style movies like Missing In Action, Invasion: USA, Delta Force, and Die Hard would not see light even in other forms as you said it is a dying fad. But maybe, just maybe, someone will get the idea to make analogies of this films in another way.

    Promotional image for Fuji Dawn's 2018 Japanese "anime" adaptation of Return of Gundam (2010), a science fiction/future history work by Victorian writer Paul Robertson, based on Yoshiyuki Tomino's 1979 animated TV series. According to interviews, he was inspired to write to novel, itself the first of different stories, after watching tapes of the show as a child, as well as coming across works allegedly from Tomino's surviving staff via the Recovered Media from the Far East.

    When it was discovered that Tomino himself and some of his staff survived Doomsday, to Robertson's shock, the original creator was reported as being pleasantly surprised that people outside Japan even like his work at all. The book, which was soon translated into Japanese, would be incorporated into the established "Gundam continuity," with Robertson credited as a co-producer in the film itself.

    1980s photo of Evo Morales, leader of the so-called"Unión Nacional Indigenista" an armed militia in 2000s Bolivia.In 2003 an terrorist attack on a Petrobras refinery on Santa Cruz de La Sierra, Bolivia, killed 80 technicians (both Brazilian and Bolivian) and injured another 142, cutting half of the gas supply to Brazil. The attack was credited to "Unión Nacional Indigenista", led by Evo Morales. Morales denied the attack and claimed that UNI is a peaceful organization. The attack was, in fact, staged by the FARC in order to destabilize international relations in South America and prevent the formation of the South American Confederation, as further investigations established.

    Tasmanian actress Jessica Green starring in the internationally acclaimed ANZC fantasy TV series "The Settlement" as the half-elf heroine Talon Blackblood. Filmed entirely in New Zealand, the series focuses on an colonial outpost inhabited by humans, elves, dwarves, orcs and other races who were fleeing persecution from the Trimava Imperium. But when the Trimava set their eyes on this small outpost, Talon must rally her fellow settlers and the native "Greyskin" tribes to fight for their home and freedom. The series is a huge hit in Australia-New Zealand and it's associated states, it's also become popular in many nations in North America, the British Isles and the South American Confederation.
