5-25-77 is a coming of age film written and directed by Patrick Read Johnson and produced by Fred Roos and Gary Kurtz. It stars John Francis Daley as a teenage filmmaker living in Wadsworth, Illinois, and his excitement for the premiere of Star Wars on May 25, 1977.[1] Johnson began funding the project in 2001 and filming took place from 2004-2006. Additional shots were filmed in 2015 and 2016, making the filming course span a total of thirteen years.

The film was first known as 5-25-77; the title was then changed to '77. In 2012, the title was reverted to 5-25-77.[2]

The film had its official premiere on May 22, 2017 at the Genesee Theatre in Waukegan, Illinois. A short theatrical run followed.[3] As of 2018 the film has not been released to the public in any format.
