When MTV unveiled their new take on Teen Wolf in 2011, their efforts were initially met with eyerolls from folks old enough to remember the original Teen Wolf. The new series didn’t bear much of a resemblance to its ostensible source material, which had been a somewhat cheesy ’80s comedy. If anything, the new show was much more like the angsty Twilight, with its ripped, frequently shirtless shapeshifters.
But perhaps it’s for the best that MTV took the property in an entirely different direction after all. Because according to Jack Black‘s new Teen Wolf sequel Adult Wolf, Scott Howard’s life went on a steep downward trajectory after adolescence. ”Back in high school I had it all: Brains, skills, girls, but after graduation, everything just fell apart,” he reflects. “Now I’ve got no job, no girlfriend, and one very annoying roommate.” Check out the “sizzle reel” after the jump.

There’s no better place than the Oscars to see all your favorite movie stars assembled in one place, but the trailer for Jimmy Kimmel‘s Movie: The Movie V2 might be a close second.
In his post-Oscars show last year, Kimmel debuted an epic, star-studded 9-minute trailer poking fun at every obnoxious movie trope under the sun. This year, he’s back with an even more epic, even more star-studded trailer for Movie: The Movie V2. Because as Kimmel quips, “When you have a big success in Hollywood, there’s only one reasonable thing you can do, and that is cheapen it with a sequel.”
Watch Movie: The Movie V2 after the jump, followed by Kimmel’s other big movie parody, Life of Psy. Yup, that’s exactly what it sounds like.

Before the release of The Dark Knight Rises, every member of the cast was incredibly guarded when it came to discussing plot points. Now that the film is out and part of the public conscious, one would think all of what happens would be open for discussion, especially since most of it is pretty cut and dry. That’s not necessarily the case for John Blake, the character played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who has remained pretty silent in regards to the film’s ending. However, on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the star of Looper not only talked about the ending, he talked about the future of the franchise. If you know what I mean. These are the biggest possible spoilers for The Dark Knight Rises, so we’ll keep them after the jump. Read More »
Playing on the world’s adoration of cute animals, ABC has reportedly hired a famous cross-eyed opossum named Heidi to pick the winners of the Oscars on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Seriously. The opossum is a Facebook and YouTube sensation and the producers are obviously trying to duplicate the success Germany had when Paul the Octopus successfully picked several games during the 2010 World Cup. However, that octopus had a 50/50 chance of picking the winners. Heidi has only a 10% chance of picking Best Picture. Read more about this stunt, and the opossum, after the break. Read More »

I didn’t get too excited when I heard that Michel Gondry would be directing an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! After all, how much of a personal stamp could Gondry, who’s known for the visual whimsy of films such as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Science of Sleep, add to a late night talk show?
Actually, a lot.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Academy Award winning director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Be Kind Rewind, The Science of Sleep) will direct the January 13th episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! in an attempt to promote his upcoming film The Green Hornet. Star of the film, Seth Rogen, will appear as Kimmel’s big guest during the episode, alongside young actress Elle Fanning (Somewhere) and a musical performance by The Damned Things. I’d love to see what kind of unquie angle Gondry will take with a late night talk show, because if you ask me, that tv genre is in need of reinvention. Quentin Tarantino and J.J. Abrams have directed previous episodes of the late night talk show. Read the full press release after the jump.
