Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery is a 1997 comedy film starring Mike Myers as two main characters, British spy Austin Powers and his nemesis Dr. Evil. After attempting and failing to assassinate Powers in 1967, Dr. Evil escapes via a space rocket and cryogenically freezes himself. Powers then volunteers to be cryogenically frozen as well in case Dr. Evil returns in the future.
Thirty years later in 1997, Dr. Evil returns with the threat to steal nuclear weapons and hold the world hostage for $100 billion, so the British Ministry of Defence unfreezes Powers and partners him with agent Vanessa Kensington, the daughter of his sidekick in the ’60s, to try and stop Dr. Evil.
