Austin Powers Movies In Order
The best way to experience the Austin Powers movies is to watch them in order.
The first film in the series is Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997). This is where it all started and it’s the perfect place to start. In this film we are introduced to all the main characters including Austin, Dr. Evil and Vanessa Kensington (played by Elizabeth Hurley). It’s full of cheesy jokes and double entendres that make the series so iconic.
Next is Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999). Set after the events of the first film, this film again sees Austin and Dr. Evil compete against each other. This time dr. Evil gets a new sidekick, Mini-Me (played by Verne Troyer), and Austin gets some help from the adorable Felicity Shagwell (played by Heather Graham). This film also introduces us to one of the franchise’s most iconic characters, Fat Bastard (played by Myers himself).
Last but not least is Austin Powers in Gold Member (2002). This film takes things to a whole new level as Austin travels back in time to the 1970’s and meets his father, played by Michael Caine. Meanwhile, Dr. Evil features a new villain, Goldmember (also played by Myers), who has his sights set on world domination. This film features some of the show’s most outlandish scenes and characters, including Beyoncé as Austin’s love interest.
So there you have it, now you know how to watch the Austin Powers movies in order.
