United Kingdom

Sept. 29, 1948 – Seretse Khama marries Ruth Williams in a London registry office

Sept. 30, 1966 – Botswana becomes an independent nation

The film could have had more dramatic tension, but still an amazing story.

(besides….Theo Landey!)

Delicious 1955 space travel flick shows two dates on clock faces, December 25 (when a miraculous snow storm arrives just as the crew, stranded on Mars, have run out of water) and July 8 (when they flee Mars because of an earthquake).

I know, it doesn't come out for another 5 months, but here....

Blade Runner 2049

 

From the trailer, this date - 6 10 21 - crudely carved into a rock.  I'm wondering if this is Rachel's grave marker.  Not sure if that date stands for June 10th, or Oct. 6th (which also happens to be this film's release date).

I would normally assume 6-10-21 would be June 10, if the film is made in North America.  But yeah, interesting observation about the release date...

Blackhat (2015)

March 9th - News footage of the crippled nuclear reactor. 

I may have to watch this in its entirety.  One, to see if there are more dates. And two, because the movie seems much better than was reported when it was released (I know it had some fans here).
