From Austin Powers Man of Mystery.
The film is a parody of the early James Bond films (particularly those starring Sean Connery) as well as other 1960s spy films.
Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery is a 1997 American comedy film that is the first film of the Austin Powers series. It was directed by Jay Roach, written by Mike Myers who also stars in the title role and distributed by New Line Cinema.
Myers also plays Dr. Evil, Austin Powers' arch-enemy. The film co-stars Elizabeth Hurley as Vanessa Kensington, Robert Wagner as Number Two, Seth Green as Scott Evil, and Michael York as Basil Exposition. There are cameos by Will Ferrell, Carrie Fisher, Tom Arnold, Rob Lowe, Christian Slater, Neil Mullarkey, and Burt Bacharach, and an uncredited cameo by MADtv star Michael McDonald, among many others.
The film, which cost $16.5 million, opened on May 2, 1997, to positive critical reviews. It made a modest impact at the box office, grossing US$53 million in its North American release and about US$68 million worldwide. The film later became a hit and cult classic on the home video market and cable television, spawning two more commercially successful sequels.
