Masters of the Universe (1987)

Based on the popular 1980’s He-Man & The Masters Of The Universe cartoon, this live-action film featured the warrior prince (Dolph Lundgren) doing battle against the dark lord Skeletor (Frank Langella) on the planet Eternia.

The battle for Eternia has Skeletor and his evil minions breeching Castle Greyskull, with the use of a cosmic key that can open portals.

During the battle, He-Man and some of his friends teleport through a portal and arrive on Earth and befriend two teenage lovers.

The film did poorly at the box office but has developed a cult following amongst fans of the cartoon and Dolph Lundgren fans.

Watch out for a pre-Friends Courtney Cox.
