The Empire Magazine 20th Anniversary Edition includes a photoshoot sure to go down in history -- and they're doing so by recreating famous Hollywood hits. The film review magazine recruited actors to pose in photoshoots to reprise their old characters.

The Empire Magazine 20th Anniversary Edition photoshoot includes Mel Gibson in Brave Heart, Ben Stiller as Zoolander, Christian Bale from American Psycho, Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster from The Silence of the Lambs, and more recently famous stars like Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson from Harry Potter (sorry, no Robert Pattinson).

We've seen plenty of recreations, from print to film, on Trend Hunter. Check out some of our favourites, including an episode of THTV called Retro Revival, in the related trends below. Stats for Former Self Photoshoots Trending: Older & Warm
