In 1998, Steven Soderbergh released the crime comedy 'Out of Sight,' based on the Elmore Leonard novel of the same name. Starring George Clooney, Jennifer Lopez, and one heck of an ensemble cast, the film followed a bank robber as he's chased down by a U.S. Marshal and the two unwittingly fall for each other. While the film wasn't a huge success at the box office, it was a hit with critics and cinephiles alike, and has become a beloved classic. 16 years later, we revisit the cast and see what they're up to now.
Where Are They Now?
In 1999, Larry and Lana Wachowski unleashed their inventive feature 'The Matrix,' which followed computer programmer Neo (Keanu Reeves) as he learns that reality as we know it is simply a simulated one created by machines to keep humans under control. Neo discovers he is the "Chosen One" destined to lead a rebellion against the machines and free humans from their oppression. The film was wildly successful and spawned two sequels, an animated anthology, and a video game, and made the visionary Wachowskis a household name. Fifteen years later, we revisit the cast of this beloved contemporary sci-fi classic and see what they're up to now.
Released in 1993, Disney's version of 'The Three Musketeers' starred an ensemble of '90s talent including Charlie Sheen, Kiefer Sutherland and Chris O'Donnell in the classic tale of D'Artagnan and his quest to join the legendary Musketeers, a trio of men sworn to protect the King of France. The film, which reunited 'Young Guns' stars Sheen and Sutherland, was a success at the box office (but poorly received by critics). Now, 21 years later, we take a look back at the cast and see what they're up to these days.
The 1988 Western flick 'Young Guns' featured an ensemble of "who's who of '80s" talent -- including Emilio Estevez, Charlie Sheen and Kiefer Sutherland -- in a telling of the adventures of Billy the Kid during the Lincoln County War in New Mexico in the late 1800s. A smashing success at the box office, 'Young Guns' spawned a sequel and has become something of a classic in its own right. Twenty-six years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
Released in 1997, 'Men in Black' paired up mega-star Will Smith with legendary actor Tommy Lee Jones as two agents who work for a secret organization that keeps tabs on alien life forms. Featuring outstanding practical effects, the hilarious sci-fi comedy (which was also based on a comic book) was a massive hit, and went on to spawn two sequels. 17 years later, we revisit the cast of this beloved modern classic and see what they're up to now.
In 1998, Wes Anderson released his second film, 'Rushmore,' which followed the life of eccentric teenager Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman), his friendship with the wealthy and lonely Herman Blume (Bill Murray), and their fight for the affection of a beautiful elementary school teacher. Co-written by Anderson and Owen Wilson, 'Rushmore' helped further Anderson's career and put Schwartzman on the map. Now, 16 years later, we revisit the cast of this indie favorite and see what they're up to now.
Back in 1989, Tim Burton introduced audiences to a new version of the caped crusader with his 'Batman' film, starring Michael Keaton as the dark hero and Jack Nicholson as his foe, the Joker. The film was, of course, a massive success, spawning three sequels (though Burton and Keaton only returned for the first) and paving the way for the darker, more serious superhero films we have today. Twenty-five years later, we revisit the cast of this comic book movie classic and see what they're up to now.
Released in 1996, 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' tells the story of Samantha, a mother and schoolteacher with amnesia, who recovers her memories and discovers she was once an assassin for the CIA. Directed by Renny Harlin, the film was written by Shane Black, who was at the time becoming one of the highest-paid screenwriters in Hollywood, thanks to his work on 'Lethal Weapon.' Black more recently wrote the screenplay for and directed 'Iron Man 3,' but 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' remains a cult classic. Eighteen years later, we revisit Geena Davis, Samuel L. Jackson and the rest of the cast, and see what they're up to now.
Released in 1997, 'The Fifth Element' starred Bruce Willis as a cab driver and former special forces officer in the 23rd century who must help a mysterious woman that just so happens to be the key to saving the entire world from destruction. Directed by Luc Besson, who would go on to direct the 'Taken' films, the highly inventive futuristic sci-fi tale was a massive success upon release and is now regarded as a cult classic. Seventeen years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
In 1998, HBO unveiled 'Sex and the City,' a show about four women navigating life, love, and sex in New York, led by the voice of fashionable sex columnist Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker). It kickstarted a premium cable movement, proving that networks like HBO and Showtime could make long-lasting, quality shows, and paving the way for future generations of programming. The wildly popular show ended in 2004 and led to two films, and now, 10 years later, we look back at the cast of this modern classic and see what they're up to these days.
