In 1997, Joel Schumacher released 'Batman and Robin,' his follow-up to 'Batman Forever,' starring George Clooney as the caped crusader. That time around, Batman teamed up with Robin and Batgirl to stop villains Mr. Freeze (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman) from freezing the world and repopulating it with mutant plants (yes, really). Although the film was a massive success, it garnered many negative reviews and is considered to be one of the worst Batman films ever made. Seventeen years later, we take a look back at the cast of the strange '90s superhero film and see where they are now.
Where Are They Now?
Released in 1997, 'Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery' starred former 'SNL' funny man Mike Myers as a British spy from the swinging '60s, awakened from a cryo-sleep to fight his old nemesis in the '90s, where he must hilariously adjust to modern life and culture. A satire of classic British spy films (notably the James Bond series), 'Austin Powers' was a smashing success, becoming an instant comedy classic and giving us two sequels. Seventeen years later, we revisit the cast and see what they're up to now.
In 1991, James Cameron unleashed 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day,' his follow-up to 'The Terminator,' in which Linda Hamilton's Sarah Connor and her son John teamed up with a Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) to fight off an advanced machine sent back in time to kill them because they were society's only hope for salvation. The film was a massive success and even won four Academy Awards, including statues for Best Visual Effects and Makeup. Twenty-three years later, we revisit the cast of this action-packed sci-fi classic and see what they're up to now.
Long before Joss Whedon made the hit TV show 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer,' he wrote the film of the same name -- released in 1992, 'Buffy' follows Kristy Swanson as the titular heroine, a cheerleader who discovers that it is her destiny to hunt and kill vampires. Co-starring Luke Perry and Donald Sutherland, the film was a moderate success, though it's often forgotten in the shadow of Whedon's wildly popular TV show starring Sarah Michelle Gellar. Twenty-two years later, we take a look back at the cast of this '90s classic and see what they're up to now.
Released in 1991, 'Point Break' starred Keanu Reeves as Johnny Utah, an FBI agent who infiltrates a crew of surfing bank robbers in an attempt to bust them, but unwittingly bonds with their leader, Bodhi (Patrick Swayze). The classic action flick was directed by Kathryn Bigelow, way back before she directed 'The Hurt Locker' (which earned her an Oscar for Best Director, making her the first woman to win that award) and 'Zero Dark Thirty.' Twenty-three years later, after a remake has been announced with Gerard Butler succeeding Swayze, we take a look back at the cast of this cult favorite and see what they're up to now.
Released in 1995, 'The Usual Suspects' follows a police investigation of a massacre on a boat and the quest to find a mysterious and near-mythical mob figure known as Keyser Soze. Directed by Bryan Singer (known now for his work on the 'X-Men' films) and scripted by Christopher McQuarrie (Singer's frequent collaborator, who would also work on the Tom Cruise projects 'Valkyrie' and 'Jack Reacher'), 'The Usual Suspects' has been heralded as one of the greatest contemporary crime films. 19 years later, we take a look back at the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
In 1997, James Cameron unleashed 'Titanic,' his epic blockbuster about the ill-fated maiden voyage of the notorious ship and the fictional love story between Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet). The film was a smashing success and was nominated for 14 Academy Awards, winning 11, including statues for Best Picture and Best Director for Cameron. In 2012, Cameron released a 3D version of the film earning it another $343 million worldwide, taking its total earnings to date well over $2 billion. 14 years later, we celebrate one of the most successful films in history by taking a look back at the cast and seeing where they are now.
Released in 2000, 'Bring It On' followed Torrance Shipman (Kirsten Dunst) who inherits the title of captain of her cheerleading squad and endeavors to lead them to their sixth consecutive win at the National Cheerleading Competition. There's only one problem: their newest recruit, the rebellious Missy (Eliza Dushku), informs the new captain that they've been using stolen routines to win the title for years, unbeknownst to Torrance.
'Bring It On' was a hit at the box office, and received somewhat positive reviews for its smart script and spoofing of cheerleading culture. The film has gone on to gain a cult following on home media over the years, and spawned four direct-to-video sequels. Now, 14 years later, we revisit the cast of this beloved teen comedy to see what they're up to these days.
'Blossom' debuted on NBC in 1991, giving 'tween and teen girls a new character to relate to: Blossom Russo, a teenage girl who lived with her two brothers and her father, and learned life lessons about abuse, drugs, and divorce -- not your typical family sitcom, to say the least. But Blossom wasn't your average girl, either, and that's what made her special. She was quirky, had cool fashion sense and, above all, she was relateable. The show ended almost 20 years ago, so join us for a look at the cast of this classic sitcom and see what they're up to now!
Released in 2001 and based on the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon of the same name, 'Josie and the Pussycats' follows a girl band whose sudden rise to fame is engineered by a record label using their music to brainwash teenagers. The bubbly satirical film starred Rachael Leigh Cook, Rosario Dawson, and Tara Reid, and although it was a failure at the box office, it went on to find a following over the years on home video and cable, becoming something of a cult classic in its own right -- more like a "pop-cult classic." 13 years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
