Films destroy and rebuild Los Angeles all the time, but usually it is for nefarious purposes. The producers of Jimmy Kimmel Live hired ILM to disassemble and rebuild Hollywood landmarks for the show’s new opening, which debuted last night. Check out the benevolent rebuild of Hollywood in the video featuring the new Kimmel opening below. Read More »

Multiple sources, including several Hollywood trades, have reported and confirmed that Jason Momoa is playing Aquaman in Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. One person who hasn’t confirmed it though, is Jason Momoa. After dismissing rumors of the role and lying about it to journalists, Momoa was finally confronted, on camera, with the headline from Variety on Jimmy Kimmel Live. His reaction is pretty great. Check out the Jason Momoa Aquaman video below. Read More »

The trades reported it, Kevin Feige didn’t deny it and now Paul Bettany has admitted it. He’s playing Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The voice of J.A.R.V.I.S., a longtime Marvel Cinematic Universe mainstay, recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote Transcendence. There, he copped to finally having to do more than one day of work on a Marvel movie, for the Joss Whedon project which is currently filming. Obviously he couldn’t give a lot of details, but hearing him talk about it is cool on its own. Check out the Paul Bettany Vision video and transcript below. Read More »

For the last few years, one of the highlights of the Academy Awards night has been what comes after the Academy Awards. Namely, Jimmy Kimmel‘s post-Oscar spoof of Hollywood filmmaking at its grandest. This year was no exception.
After knocking it out of the park two years in a row with Movie: The Movie and its inevitable sequel, he switched gears this year to bring us highfalutin Oscar bait trailers starring the likes of Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Ben Kingsley… based on the likes of YouTube classics “David After Dentist,” “Keyboard Cat,” and “Charlie Bit My Finger.” Check ’em all out after the jump.

At the end of every single episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host apologizes to Matt Damon for running out of time. The gag is that every single night, Damon is in the back waiting to come on the show. That’s not true of course, but the dedication to the bit is impressive. It’s so impressive, in fact, Damon has never actually been a guest on the show. He’s appeared, however. He’s hosted, and been in taped videos, but never appeared as a guest.
Earlier this week, it finally happened. It only took George Clooney, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Cate Blanchett and Bob Balaban to do it. Damon is one of the stars of Clooney’s The Monuments Men and was unceremoniously brought out as part of the ensemble. That devolved into 10 minutes of the genius cast ripping him to shreds. It’s hilarious. Check it out below. Read More »

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.
