We’re just 17 days away from the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and the onslaught of marketing for the Marvel Studios sequel is in full swing. New TV spots are hitting the web all the time, and two more have just arrived. One of them features another roll call of all the Guardians of the Galaxy, including the new additions of Karen Gillan as Nebula and Michael Rooker as Yondu, though there’s no spot for Pom Klementieff as Mantis.
In addition, Jimmy Kimmel Live (which will have the entire Guardians of the Galaxy cast on the show this evening) recently aired a segment revealing that Jimmy Kimmel’s lovable sidekick Guillermo was given a small role in the Marvel sequel. Guillermo gets some invaluable advice from cast members like Chris Pratt and Kurt Russell before he shoots his big scene and you can watch all of this below. Read More »
HBO’s comedy series Girls is nearing an end to its sixth and final season. We’re not sure where the stories of Hannah (Lena Dunham), Marnie (Allison Williams), Jessa (Jemima Kirke) and Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) will end up, but we won’t have to wait for long. Though this is the final season of the show, Lena Dunham has said that she would love to bring these characters back for a movie, but not until enough time has passed for them to be in a completely different place in their lvies.
That brings us to one Girls project that’s even further down the road. In honor of the final season of Girls, the folks at Jimmy Kimmel Live decided to round up the four stars of the HBO series to put together a pilot for an update of The Golden Girls, featuring Hannah, Marnie, Jessa and Shoshanna living together like Bea Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan and Estelle Getty did in the original version of the series.

Even though we won’t see Doctor Strange until November 4th here in the United States, the trailers have already indicated that Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) will quickly become a master of the mystical arts, despite the fact that he doesn’t really believe in all that spiritual nonsense at first. However, it appears some wires got crossed and Jimmy Kimmel thought Doctor Strange was just a magician who could entertain at a kid’s birthday party. While Strange does his best to put on a good show for the kids, he doesn’t really know how to deal with them properly.

This weekend brings the true story Sully to the big screen. The film directed by Clint Eastwood stars Tom Hanks as real life airline pilot Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, the man who landed a passenger plane in the Hudson river after something went terribly wrong shortly after take-off from LaGuardia Airport. The movie has been received fairly well with an 83% on Rotten Tomatoes at the time of this writing (though our own David Chen didn’t find it wholly compelling), but it appears there may be a more interesting biographical drama on the horizon.
While Tom Hanks is the one bringing Captain Sullenberger to life, Hollywood decided that the airline pilot was the best choice to star in a film called Hanks, a biopic about actor Tom Hanks and his rise to fame. Covering his career from the sitcom Bosom Buddies to his Oscar-winning turn in Philadelphia and more, this biopic looks like another awards contender in the making.

Yesterday was Ghostbusters Day, and to celebrate the casts of both the 1984 classic and this year’s reboot came together on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
For some reason, the posting of the videos on YouTube pretend the arrival of the original Ghostbusters cast during an interview with the new Ghostbusters cast was some kind of surprise, even though we found out about it in advance. Anyway, the two casts get together to talk about the reboot and the legacy of the original Ghostbusters.
Plus, Bill Murray throws his full support behind the reboot and explains why he finally chose this project to come back to the Ghostbusters franchise. If you think that’s just because he’s shilling for the studio, he actually gives some very honest thoughts about the film that might quell some of the fears of naysayers out there.
Watch the highlights from the Ghostbusters Jimmy Kimmel Live episode below. Read More »
In just a couple days, fans in 25 major cities around the United States will be seeing Captain America: Civil War, so we’ll be getting more than the initial positive reaction from critics and press that came last weekend. But if you’re not among the lucky fans heading to one of those screenings, you’ve got a few weeks to wait, and Jimmy Kimmel Live just might have the goods to hold you over this week.
Marvel is invading the late night talk show all week, and they started by having Team Captain America stop by the show last night. Along with all the fun that was had with Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie and Paul Rudd, a new Captain America Civil War clip debuted where Ant-Man (Rudd) meets Captain America (Evans) and is a little bit starstruck. It’s one of the clips we saw at D23 last year.

This week has brought some goodies from Marvel’s fall release of Doctor Strange with Benedict Cumberbatch stopping by a comic book shop in full wardrobe after production on the movie wrapped. Plus, a new official photo just arrived online today as well. But next week is when we’re really going to get a taste of the Sorcerer Supreme.
Jimmy Kimmel Live will be taken over by Marvel Studios next week with the stars of Captain America: Civil War stopping by throughout the week. But there’s one day when fans will really want to pay attention, because that’s when Benedict Cumberbatch will be stopping by to unveil the first Doctor Strange trailer. Read More »

My excitement for the upcoming revival of The X-Files found itself tempered yesterday as a new batch of early reviews arrived. To call the early response to the limited series’ first episode negative would be an understatement. The disappointment was palpable. It hung in the air like an alien fog that you could collect in a jar and bottle in a government agency, only for it to break out and wreak havoc in the middle of the season when everyone is taking a break from the overarching mythology episodes
So faithful-but-not-blind X-Files fans need a laugh today and bless Jimmy Kimmel for trying to give us one with this amusing parody, which finds him teaming up David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson for a new case. Watch it for yourself below.

If you’ve been watching Jimmy Kimmel Live over the past few years, or if you just pay attention whenever there’s a Star Wars-related clip that makes its way online, then you know that Harrison Ford has some serious beef with Chewbacca. The Wookiee seems to have done some nefarious activities with the wife of the man who plays his on-screen pal. Ford is so upset at Chewie that he has called him a “son of a bitch” when he tried to stop by his dressing room in 2011, and a “Wookiee sack of shit” when he popped up again in 2013.
But on last night’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens-themed episode, Ford finally settled the feud as Chewbacca was threatening to end his life on top of Jimmy Kimmel’s studio. Plus, there was plenty of other fun stuff, like a trivia contest between the cast and a seven-year old kid, a hologram from Carrie Fisher and a Star Wars edition of Lie Witness News. Read More »
