This article is about the 1983 film. Parkes and directed by John Badham. 79 million after five months in the United States and Canada. The film was nominated for three Academy Awards. During a surprise drill of a nuclear attack, many United States Air Force Strategic Missile Wing controllers prove unwilling to turn the key required to launch a missile strike. David Lightman, a bright but unmotivated Seattle high school student and hacker, uses his computer to break into the school district’s computer system and change his grades.

He does the same for his friend and classmate Jennifer Mack. David does not know that the Sunnyvale phone number connects to WOPR at the Cheyenne Mountain Complex. He starts a game of Global Thermonuclear War, playing as the Soviet Union. The computer starts a simulation that briefly convinces the military personnel at NORAD that actual Soviet nuclear missiles are inbound. David learns the true nature of his actions from a news broadcast, and FBI agents arrest him and take him to NORAD. David escapes NORAD by joining a tourist group and, with Jennifer’s help, travels to the Oregon island where Falken lives. The computer stages a massive Soviet first strike with hundreds of missiles, submarines, and bombers.

Believing the attack to be genuine, NORAD prepares to retaliate. Falken, David, and Jennifer convince military officials to cancel the second strike and ride out the attack. WOPR tries to launch the missiles itself, however, using a brute-force attack to obtain the launch code. Falken and David direct the computer to play tic-tac-toe against itself. This results in a long string of draws, forcing the computer to learn the concept of futility and no-win scenarios. WOPR obtains the missile code, but before launching, it cycles through all the nuclear war scenarios it has devised, finding they, too, all result in stalemates.
