I’ve seen some excellent photo galleries in my time, but I think this one takes the cake by a mile. To celebrate their 20th anniversary, UK film mag Empire called in every favor they had to assemble the best actors in the world to come and reprise their most famous roles for a photoshoot that can really only be described as legendary.
I can’t really say any more about this that the pictures can’t say themselves. Check the full gallery out after the jump, and click on any of them to make them bigger.
Mel Gibson in Braveheart
Matt Damon in The Bourne Identity
Christian Bale in American Psycho
Sean Bean and Viggo Mortensen in Lord of the Rings
Tom Cruise in Minority Report
Gerard Butler in 300
Clint Eastwood and Morgan Freeman in Unforgiven
Laurence Fishburne in The Matrix
Keira Knightley and James Macavoy in Atonement
Jack Nicholson in uh, everything
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in Shaun of the Dead
Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint in Harry Potter
Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator
Michael Sheen in The Queen
Kevin Spacey in Se7en
Ben Stiller in Zoolander
Sam Neil in Jurassic Park
Wishlist, because I’m greedy:
Harrison Ford as Indy and/or Han Solo
Sigourney Weaver as Ripley
Russell Crowe as Maximus
All of the James Bonds together
But seriously, an epic project all around.
