Filmed partially during Super Bowl X in Miami’s Orange Bowl on January 18, 1976, “Black Sunday” was a horror film with a terrifyingly-realistic plot: a terrorist plot to explode a blimp flying overhead of a Super Bowl with the president of the United States in attendance.

Directed by acclaimed director John Frankenheimer, “Black Sunday” cameras were all over the Orange Bowl during the Super Bowl to capture every aspect they could to enhance the reality of the movie.

Grossing more than $15 million, “Black Sunday” was No. 26 on the list of domestic top-grossing films in 1977. The No. 1 on the list was “Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope” that grossed $323 million.

The top sports film of the year was another NFL-based movie: “Semi-Tough” ranked No. 12 in domestic gross, pulling in $37 million.
