Featuring narration from The Craft's Fairuza Balk (and with clips of Robin Tunney, Devon Sawa and co), it made us feel a sudden pang of nostalgia and sent us on our own trip down memory lane to find out where they - and the rest of the '90s teen movie crew - are now.
So, here are 11 stars from some of our favourite '90s teen movies, and what they've gone on to do since:
He went on to play teenage prophet of doom Alex Browning in Final Destination (2000), and appeared as similarly unstable Stan in Eminem's controversial music »

Chicago – In a year where shoots with perpetual photo fashionistas like Cindy Crawford and Sarah Jessica Parker still failed to crack the Top Ten list of biggest celebrity photo-ops, you know 2014 was a very good year for HollywoodChicago.com and myself, Joe Arce, as Senior Staff Photographer.
Narrowing down the 182 celebrity subjects that posed for my lens last year to a mere ten favorite portraits is not an easy task. Nonetheless, here are my Top Ten picks for biggest celebrity shoots of 2014. I based this on a combination of star power wattage of the subjects, the artistic results and the degree of difficulty in landing the quarry – for those iPhone carrying budding celebrity stalkers who may wish to play along at home.

Not only an Oscar winner, but the daughter »

Bradley Cooper just became the 10th actor in Oscar history to reap three nominations in a row. He contends for Best Actor for his performance in the smash hit "American Sniper." In 2012, he lost his bid in that race for "Silver Linings Playbook" to Daniel Day-Lewis ("Lincoln"). Last year, he vied in supporting for "American Hustle" but was bested by Jared Leto ("Dallas Buyers Club"). Surely, he must be hoping that Oscar history is on his side this time around. Indeed, of the nine previous men to pull off this triple play, five of them won at least one of these three races (as detailed below). -Break-Among this quintet of champs, only Jack Nicholson had to sit in the wings until the third year before taking to the stage to claim his first Oscar. He had his revenge by then racking up another nine nominations to set the record among »
Arthur Penn’s notorious, arguably ‘revisionist’ Western The Missouri Breaks makes it to Blu-ray courtesy of Kino Lorber, with packaging that keeps the film’s initial infamous discrepancies alive and well with star Marlon Brando’s name retaining top billing. Though it would be Brando’s last sizeable role, the film’s main protagonist is really Jack Nicholson as a matter-of-fact horse thief who runs up against a prosperous man who holds himself above the law by failing to recognize that the rest of the country’s outlying frontiers have them.
The term revisionist is problematic in reference to Penn’s film, though it attempts to make us sympathize with a villain positioned against a civilized businessman who’s nearly as irredeemable. Two wrongs don’t make a right, so if anything, Penn’s adaptation of Thomas McGuane’s script is anarchist at best. Plagued with a troubled production thanks »

With Michael Keaton winning the Golden Globe for best actor in a musical or comedy and Eddie Redmayne winning for best actor in a drama, both men continue establishing themselves as the frontrunners in this year’s lead actor race at the Oscars.
Though not new to films, Redmayne starred in Oscar-nominated films such as Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2008) and Les Miserables (2012). His performance as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, however, propelled him to widespread acclaim and put him on the radar. He is one of four best actor nominees — along with Keaton, Benedict Cumberbatch and Steve Carell — to receive their first nomination this year.
For most of his career, Keaton was known for his comedic roles, such as Mr. Mom (1983) and Beetlejuice (1988), and for his turn as Batman in Tim Burton’s Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992). These roles earned Keaton praise and »

I am ready for Oscar speeches. I am ready for badass Oscar speeches. And here are 10 that remind you what it looks like when a bad-ass wields a gold statue and tells it like it is. 1. Lee Grant remembers what Hollywood did to her. And now they will never forget. Lee Grant, who won a Best Supporting Actress for "Shampoo," was blacklisted in the '50s and had to put her entire career on hold. She eventually rebounded with an Emmy for "Peyton Place" and a couple of Oscar nominations. When the time came to approach the dais, she had reckoning on her mind. Addressing her Oscar, she said, "We had a fight 20 years ago. I think he's changed. I know I haven't." Bam. 2. George Burns was the hottest young star of '75. George Burns picked up an Oscar for "The Sunshine Boys" at the age of 80. And yet, he »

It's funny how little news coverage there is now each time Meryl Streep breaks her own Oscar records. With her 19th nomination she's just 5 more away from Doubling the previous record holders (Jack Nicholson & Katharine Hepburn) whose record of 12 nominations she broke a dozen years back with Adaptation (2002), her 13th. Five would seem like a ridiculous number remaining to even mention (only roughly two dozen actresses have managed five nods in entire careers in the history of the world) but it's Meryl and she's nominated each time she makes a movie and makes them (almost) every year. Maybe she'll reach that big number before her 75th birthday in the summer of 2024?
Supporting Actress nonsense, The Arquettes, and more trivia after the jump...

Nine actors. Eighteen Best Actor Oscars. Let's rank these legendarily thespians much in the way we took a hard look yesterday at the 13 women who scooped up two Best Actress wins. The contenders: Spencer Tracy, Fredric March, Gary Cooper, Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson, Dustin Hoffman, Tom Hanks, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Sean Penn. Damn. Put on your spurs, Will Kane, because this is a battle of men's men. »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.
New on DVD and Blu-ray
David Fincher's latest dark 'n' twisty drama stars Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck as a pair of beautiful people who do terrible things to each other. This adaptation of Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel is worth it just for the scene in which Tyler Perry, as a high-powered lawyer who specializes in cases where men are accused of murdering their wives, throws gummy bears at Affleck's head.
This German film is for those with particularly strong stomachs, but if you're up for it, this is a wild ride. »

Far be it from us to refer to the Golden Globes as "Hollywood's drunkest night," but the awards show has a bit of a reputation. And honestly, it's pretty great. The evening is a refreshing warm-up to the comparative stuffiness of the Oscars, and even the stars who don't admit to having a drink (or seven) in their speeches would probably readily admit there's a special kind of atmosphere to Globes night that lends itself to some truly memorable moments. Since we'd be here until Sunday if we recapped every hilarious or awkward incident from the Globes' history (oh wait, »

Bradley Cooper is looking to not only star but also make his feature directorial debut on "Honeymoon with Harry" at New Line.
Dan Fogelman ("Crazy, Stupid, Love") has come onboard the film to do a re-write which will tailor the project to suit the sensibilities of both Cooper and his "Silver Linings Playbook" co-star Robert De Niro who also is circling the project
The story revolves around a womanizing booze-hound who changes his ways when he falls in love. The girl’s father disapproves, and after the woman dies shortly before their wedding, the devastated groom sets off on their honeymoon to drink himself to death. He ends up running across the woman’s father who has ventured to spread his daughter’s ashes on her favorite beach.

It’s been clear for a while that Bradley Cooper isn’t interested in being just a movie star. His career of late has taken on a distinct animal theme, with vocal duties on Rocket Raccoon and a Broadway stint in The Elephant Man winning him rave reviews. So Cooper wanting add strings to his bow by directing a movie doesn’t come as a surprise. But which project has caught his eye? Well reportedly he is looking to lens Honeymoon With Harry, a long-gestating dark comedy he may star in with Robert De Niro. The story concerns two characters affected by the same tragedy – a groom turned suicidal when his beloved dies and his prospective father-in-law, who he runs into when opting to go on the somewhat bleak honeymoon with the intention of ending it all.
This has been in development for a decade – the original wish list of »

Batman films have been some serious bank for Warner Brothers since 1989, when Tim Burton breathed a bit of darkness into the character that had mainly been associated with the pop-art parody of Bill Dozier’s 1960s TV series. And since then we have seen seven movies from three different film makers, ecompassing a myriad of actors portraying a mini universe of different characters.
During this time there have been some career defining performances that captured the tone of the source material, and elevated the vision of their director. The most obvious of these would be the two contrasting, yet equally ground breaking Joker depictions from Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger. But it is fair to say that actors like Christian Bale and Michelle Pfeiffer created iconic depictions of their characters too, and particularly in Nolan’s films, there has been an ocean of strong supporting actors.

Stuck in development hell for years, comedy drama Honeymoon With Harry has at last been given a new lease of life. Per Deadline, New Line Cinema has brought fresh blood aboard the ten-year old property in the hopes of making production a reality. First up, the studio’s roped in Crazy, Stupid, Love scribe Dan Fogelman to punch up the script and is expected to secure Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro in the two lead roles.
Judging by the synopsis offered by the outlet, the movie sounds like perfect awards fodder – that perfect hybrid of tragedy and comedy – ripe for Academy consideration. The prior working relationship between Cooper and De Niro, who collaborated on Limitless and The Silver Linings Playbook, ought to make Cooper’s transition behind the camera a lot smoother as well. While neither have confirmed their involvement, if Cooper signs on he’ll be working double »

Exclusive: After nearly a decade of trying and failing to get to the altar on Honeymoon With Harry, New Line has hired Crazy, Stupid, Love scribe Dan Fogelman to redraft the comedy as a star vehicle for American Sniper‘s Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro. No deal with those two yet, but they are keen to work together again and this is a project they are both sweet on.
Fogelman is a high-priced writer and what he writes usually gets made, so the message here is that New Line is serious about moving forward. Cooper has long been intrigued with playing a formerly self-centered womanizing booze-hound who changed his ways when he met a girl and fell in love. He’s loathed by the girl’s dad, who recognizes himself in the young man. They get engaged anyway. When she dies tragically just before their wedding, the devastated groom »

Couldn’t we have nominated Jennifer Lawrence for something this year? Like, Best Foreign Language Short or something?!
We are entering a potentially dark time: Awards season without Jennifer Lawrence. She hasn’t been nominated for a Golden Globe or SAG Award for...what? X-Men: Days of Future Past? And she didn’t win the Academy Award last year, so she won’t be required to attend as a presenter this year.
Heck, she won People’s Choice awards and didn’t go to that.
Photos: Check out the nominees for this weekend’s Golden Globes!
Without her, we will miss out on so many awards season staples. Like...
Who is going to fall on the red carpet?
Who will remind us that celebs actually do eat?
Who is going to fangirl on the red carpet, just like we would?
(This was over Leonardo DiCaprio, Btw. J.Law = All of us.)
Who is going »
A month from now, are you even going to remember who won the Golden Globes? And should you? After all, it's not like the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the little group of entertainment journalists who give out the prizes, have loads of credibility, either as Oscar and Emmy prognosticators or as discerning film and TV critics.
But they do put on a heck of an awards show. This year's gala, the HFPA's 72nd, boasts a pair of popular and funny emcees, a glamorous gathering of TV and movie stars, a tribute to a certain Hollywood royal, and the possibility that the event's free-flowing alcohol and relaxed vibes will lead to something spontaneous and memorable happening. Oh yeah, and Sunday's proceedings will also offer a small hint at what could win at the Oscars in February. Here, then, are some things likely to catch your eye at the 2015 Golden Globes ceremony. »
