Movies with the 'Young ASTROS of the 2000s' released 21 years ago… Have you watched it?

The Hollywood industry is well known for being a factory to make stars, however, this same structure can prove to be very cruel when getting rid of your products that are no longer “working” as well and generating more profit. This is precisely the case with most of the items in this new story. With the arrival of the 2000s, a new decade was announced, prepared to unfortunately erase from the map some young talents that had shown promise from the middle to the end of the previous decade: the 90s.

Don’t get me wrong, these actors that we’ll feature below are still active and continue to work in the area – whether on TV or in film productions. What happens is that with their explosion in the so-called 15 minutes of fame, it was expected that such artists would become Hollywood legends, following the same fate as great stars and stars who started out at a very young age; names like Tom Cruise, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Will Smith, Scarlett Johansson, among others, started in the field in their youth and managed to remain at the top of the industry’s food chain. A fact that did not occur with the artists that we will celebrate in this new article.

Check out the Movies with Hot Stars from the 2000s that turn 21 in 2022 below and you hadn’t even heard of it.

Prior to that, Hewitt starred in the hit horror film I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997), which marked an era and spawned a sequel in 1998, also starring her. Twenty years ago, in 2001, the young woman took one of her most ambitious steps here in sweet cheatwhere she played the daughter of the veteran Sigourney Weaver.

Speaking of the beloved cult of the 90s I Know What You Did Last Summernow comes to our list another veteran of this feature. Sarah Michelle Gellar became one of the most beloved Scream Queens of the 90s after starring not only in the aforementioned film, but also making a cameo in the phenomenon. panic 2released in the same year of 1997. But the actress would mark the decade even as she personified the role that would define her career, Buffy – The Vampire Slayer (1997-2003), creation of Joss Wheadon.

In addition to Gellar, the cast also includes popular names in the period, see Adrian Grenier, Joey Lauren Adams and Rebecca Gayheart.

Young Punishers

Colin Farrell gives “enough” to Ali Larter, but left the girl’s career “in the dust” when he became a star.

Another big western production, this one paid by Warner for the “trifle” of US$35 million. Here, we have a kind of Robin Hood tale set in the wild west, with young gunslingers taking from the rich and giving to the poor. Unlike the other items on this list, we have the presence of an actor who was just starting his career, but managed to do well in the middle; its about Colin Farrell. Worse luck had their promising supporting actors: Scott Caan (son of James Caan) and the blonde Ali Larter – who never became Hollywood A-team stars. Interestingly, both Caan and Larter had their big revelations in the hit MTV football movie, Tight Marking (1999), which was Larter’s film debut and starred James Van Der Beek, quoted above.
