15 ’90s Teen Heartthrobs Who’ve Resurfaced on TV

By

This Sunday, Showtime premieres Penny Dreadful, a new horror series that stars Josh Hartnett.

Back then, Hartnett was a Heartthrob with a capital H, profiled in everything from J-14 to Bop, his picture adorning the walls of teen bedrooms and junior-high lockers across America. His return to the mainstream is exciting — but he’s not the only ’90s hottie on television right now. Here are 15 teen heartthrobs from the ’90s and the recent TV shows you can watch them on.

There’s some genuinely great stuff in here, proving yet again that this whole “phasing out of physical media for ephemeral streaming that comes and goes as it pleases” thing should give us all pause, but there’s no time for that—there’s barely twelve hours of 2013 left, and you’re about to lose some great movies. So if you’re planning on making New Year’s Eve a movie night, here’s a few soon-to-expire suggestions:

The Greatest Movie Trailers of 2013

By

Vanity Fair recently published an essay asking if 2013 is the greatest year for movies since the Gone with the Wind era. That benchmark is certainly debatable, but if we had to judge this year’s cinema based on the trailers alone, we’d say there’s a strong possibility 2013 could trump all. This year’s trailers got us talking and left us wanting more (everything a good trailer should do) — and we’ve surveyed the best of 2013, below. What trailers left a lasting impression on you this year?
