Matthew Broderick and Alan Ruck had a mini Ferris Bueller’s Day Off reunion last night (March 22) at a premiere event for HBO’s Succession.

Broderick and Ruck, of course, played best friends Ferris Bueller and Cameron Frye in the classic 1986 John Hughes comedy. Ruck plays Connor Roy in the popular HBO drama series whose final season begins on March 26.

As with many high-profile events, a fun photo booth was on hand at the Succession premiere. Broderick and Ruck popped in for some fun pics which were shared by the HBO Max Twitter. The two friends were clearly having a blast hanging out together. Appropriately, the post was captioned, “Life moves pretty fast.”

This is far from the first Ferris Bueller reunion. As part of his 2020 pandemic YouTube series “Reunited Apart,” host Josh Gad got most of the cast to reunite over Zoom. Including Broderick and Ruck, other cast members that participated included Mia Sara and Jennifer Grey. Even Ben Stein, who played the economics teacher famous for uttering, “Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?”, joined in.

The reunion also featured appearances from Cindy Pickett and Lyman Ward, who played Ferris’ parents, and Kenny Ortega, who choreographed the parade scene.

The video closes with a touching tribute to writer/director John Hughes that features appearances from Catherine O’Hara, Molly Ringwald, Steve Martin, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Chevy Chase, Michael Keaton and more. The entire sequence stars at the 40:00 mark.

After the closing credits, stick around for a fun callback to the end credits of Ferris Bueller.

80 Movie Soundtracks Certified Multi-Platinum

Music is art. Movies are art. When they collide, magic can happen that can, and has, impacted pop culture.

The soundtrack album is almost like a time capsule. Often, it captures a moment in time, like the soundtrack for Saturday Night Fever and the age of disco or the soundtrack for Singles and the era where Seattle’s grunge scene ruled the world. It even works on films that period pieces like Forrest Gump, whose soundtrack highlighted some of the biggest hits of the ’60s and ’70s, or The Wedding Singer, which honored some of the biggest artists of the ’80s.

These time capsules have often translated into major sales figures, especially before the digital era where you can stream literally any song you can think of at the touch of a button.
