13. Explorers (1985)
Ethan Hawke made his debut in feature films in Joe Dante’s 1985 sci-fi teen drama, ‘Explorers’. ‘Explorers’ was the story of three teenagers, who, because of their obsession with aliens, build a spaceship in order to explore the fantasies of the outer world. Also starring River Phoenix (who went on to become an early acting sensation) and Jason Presson, ‘Explorers’ was rushed into production for an early release. As a result, it went on to bomb at the box office, suffering heavy loss.
Ethan was so disappointed at the film’s failure, that he quit acting for quite a time (a fact as he didn’t appear in any film until 1989). He even described his sorrow as a child in later years, saying, “I would never recommend a kid to act”.
