In 1999, M. Night Shyamalan entered the scene with his directorial debut, 'The Sixth Sense.' Starring Bruce Willis in one of the most acclaimed roles of his storied career, the film is a chilling tale of a boy who sees dead people with an infamous third act twist. With Shyamalan's 'After Earth' hitting theaters this week, let's take a trip back to where it all began and check out the cast of 'The Sixth Sense' then and now.
Released in 1979, 'The Warriors' has become a cult classic over the last few decades. Directed by Walter Hill, the film follows the gang known as the Warriors, who are framed by rival gang the Rogues for the murder of a peace-seeking gang leader named Cyrus. Over the course of the film, the Warriors are targeted by the local New York gangs and must fight for their survival and to prove their innocence.
34 years after the release of this beloved classic, we take a look back at the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
Based on the real-life experiences of writer (and 'Law and Order' creator) Dick Wolf, 'School Ties' follows a young Jewish man named David Greene (Brendan Fraser) as he's accepted into a prestigious prep school and must hide his religious background from his antisemitic classmates. Released in 1992, the film boasted an incredible cast, including then little-known actors Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. 21 years later, we take a look back at the cast and see what they're up to now.
Released way back in 1986, 'Back to School' was based on a story idea by the late, great comedian Rodney Dangerfield and co-written by Harold Ramis. Dangerfield starred as Thornton Melon, a wealthy but woefully uneducated man who enrolls in college when his despairing son admits that he wants to drop out. Shenanigans and valuable life lessons ensue, of course.
27 years later, we head 'Back to School' to take a look at the cast of the film and see where they are now.
Released in 1997, 'Romy and Michele's High School Reunion' follows two ditzy high school best friends and former outcasts as they try to reinvent themselves to impress the popular crowd at their high school reunion. Starring Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino, the film is a comedic look at growing up, friendship, and staying true to yourself. 16 years later, we take a look back at the cast of the film and see where they are now in a very special reunion of our own.
In 2003, 'School of Rock' hit theaters -- directed by Richard Linklater from a script by Mike White, the film follows down and out wannabe rock star Dewey Finn (Jack Black), who impersonates his friend and becomes a substitute teacher at a local prep school. Finn discovers that his students have a proclivity for music, and tries to transform them into his new band.
To celebrate the film's 10th anniversary this year, the cast recently reunited in Linklater's hometown of Austin for a screening and live performance, which seems like as good a time as any to take a look back at the cast of the film and see where they are now.
In 'Galaxy Quest,' a group of actors from a popular sci-fi TV show (akin to 'Star Trek) get sucked into a real life adventure when aliens come to them asking for help to defend themselves against an evil alien overlord. Though the sci-fi parody had an awesome cast, it wasn't a huge hit at the box office, but found a cult following when it was released on home video. 14 years later, we take a look back at the cast of this gem and see what they're up to now.
'The X-Files' debuted on Fox in 1993, giving audiences a new obsession with the story of FBI special agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson), a pair assigned to investigate the mysterious X-Files, unsolved cases that may or may not involve paranormal or alien activity. Scully was the skeptic, Mulder the believer, and together they solved cases over the course of nine seasons (give or take an absence here and there). It's been 20 years since the series made its debut, so join us as we look back at the cast and see what they're up to now.
Joel and Ethan Coen's 'Fargo' tells the story of a pregnant police chief (Coen mainstay Frances McDormand and wife of Joel) as she tracks down the perpetrators behind a series of grisly homicides in Minneapolis, Minnesota -- leading her to two henchmen hired by a local car salesman to kidnap his wife. The film, released in 1996, became an instant cult hit. Today we take a look back at the cast of the film and see what they're up to these days.
Released in 1996, Cameron Crowe's 'Jerry Maguire' starred Tom Cruise as the titular character -- a sports agent who, fed up with the lack of heart in his work, sends out an incendiary "mission statement" and heads out to start his own venture with the help of his new assistant (and love interest) Dorothy Boyd. It was the fifth consecutive film to gross more than $100 million for Tom Cruise, making him guaranteed box-office gold. We take a look back at Cruise and the rest of the cast from the film -- 17 years later -- to see what they're up to now.
In 1997, Paul Thomas Anderson made Mark Wahlberg a huge, huge star with the film 'Boogie Nights.' The film followed a dishwasher who uses his very, uh, sizable talents to enter the world of the adult film industry. While his star quickly rises, his life -- and the lives of his colleagues and friends -- begins to unravel. We take a look back at the cast of this film 16 years later (if you can believe it) to see what they're up to now.
Ah, friendship -- it weathers any storm, helps heal broken hearts, and provides television with some of its most hilarious and touching moments. Friendship is equated with consistency, and helps provide an anchor for viewers. No matter what changes may come, friends are forever (most of the time). From 'Perfect Strangers' to 'Scrubs,' and everything in between, we take a look back at some of your favorite best friends from TV and see what they're up to now.
Robert Downey Jr. and James Spader will appear together in 'Avengers 2: Age of Ultron,' but way back in 1987, the two actors starred together in a much different film: 'Less Than Zero,' based on the novel by Bret Easton Ellis, in which a college student returns home to L.A. for the holidays to spend time with his ex-girlfriend and his junkie best friend. 26 years later, and with a reunion of sorts on the way, we thought now would be a good time to take a look back at the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
An elite special forces team led by Arnold Schwarzenegger's Dutch heads into the jungles of Central America on a mission to rescue hostages from guerrilla territory, only to encounter a superior race of alien hunters in the 1987 horror classic 'Predator.' 25 years later, we take a look back at the cast of this film to see what they were up to then, and where they are now.
