Chris Pine as James T Kirk As seen in: Star Trek (2009) Director JJ Abrams revisited the original TV series, telling the story of how the crew first got together, but with a clever time travel twist.
Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker As seen in: Star Wars Attack of the Clones (2002) and Revenge of the Sith (2005) Not the best acting performance, but he did help us understand how Darth Vader came to be, and how Luke and Leia ended up separated.
Hugh Jackman as Wolverine As seen in: X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) An older Jackman played a younger Wolverine, nine years after he first grew lambchop sideburns for the part, to reveal the character’s back stoy.
River Phoenix as Indiana Jones As seen in: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) The third Indy movie begins in 1912, with a teenage version trying to thwart some graverobbers. The scene reveals where Indiana Jones got the idea for the hat and the whip.
Robert De Niro as Don Corleone As seen in: The Godfather Part II (1974) The film tells two stories side by side – one of Michael Corleone (Al Pacino), and the other of his father, the original Godfather (De Niro), from his childhood to his early years as a gangster.
