In anticipation of No Time To Die, rewind to 1997 as we look at a film that is both an homage and a parody of the 1960s spy genre – particularly the James Bond film franchise.
Directed by Jay Roach from a story by Mike Myers, Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery stars Mike Myers, Mike Myers and Elizabeth Hurley, alongside Seth Green, Robert Wagner, and Mindy Sterling.
A world-class playboy and special agent, Austin Powers (Mike Myers) is defrosted after 30 years in a cryogenic freeze to match wits with his nemesis, Dr. Evil (also Mike Myers). Possessing antiquated spy skills and mod mannerisms from the `60s, Austin must confront a villain like no other while making peace with his own out-of-date, swinging sexuality.
