1993: The comedy "Dazed and Confused" premieres in theaters. The coming-of-age movie, which starred the likes of Ben Affleck, Matthew McConaughey, Joey Lauren Adams, Milla Jovovich, Jason London, Cole Hauser, Parker Posey and Renee Zellwegger before they were famous, follows various groups of teenagers during the last day of school in the summer of 1976. The movie would gross only $918,127 in its opening weekend and make $7.9 million in North America overall, but would eventually become a cult classic.
