As some may know, a lot of now legendary films were crushed by E.T and suffered at the box office. So, which release of 1982 would have been #1 had E.T not been released that year? Arguably it is going to be 'First Blood', 'Conan The Barbarian', 'The Thing' vs 'Blade Runner', who still did OK in $$, but here are some other select Hollywood contenders for that year (US release schedule): Airplane 2 The Beastmaster The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas Blade Runner Burden Of Dreams Cat People Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean Conan The Barbarian Creepshow The Dark Crystal Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid Death Wish II Diner First Blood Friday The 13th Part 3 Grease 2 Halloween 3 Honkytonk Man The King Of Comedy Night Shift Rocky 3 Star Trek 2 The Thing Tootsie TRON The Year Of Living Dangerously Young Doctors In Love ...so? Whats your pick? Feel free to add one of your own.
