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 »
It’s a staple of the fall movie season to see an actor, usually one known for comedies, step outside of their comfort zone and deliver a powerful dramatic performance, wowing audiences and critics alike. And that movie is finally throwing itself into the Oscar race as a last-minute entry.
The first trailer for a new indie drama called Crying in a Sweater has arrived, showing off a promising tour-de-force performance from Saturday Night Live veteran Kristen Wiig as a woman struggling through life’s trials and tribulations.

It’s been 26 years since Spike Lee‘s provocative Do the Right Thing debuted, and since Hollywood has been digging deep into the past for sequels, reboots and remakes, it only makes sense that they would revive the racially charged drama.
However, in case you haven’t noticed, Brooklyn has changed a lot since 1989. As Jimmy Kimmel noted during one of his episodes being taped in New York last week, “There used to be muggers right in this neighborhood stealing old ladies’ purses. Now those old lady purses are being worn ironically by hipsters in the area.” And that’s exactly what inspired the trailer for Do the Right Thing 2, starring Billy Crudup, Zooey Deschanel and more white people.

Jimmy Kimmel may have had the best Back to the Future Day of any of us. Because his, you see, ended with an actual visit from Marty McFly and Doc Brown. The pair dropped by the Brooklyn stage of Jimmy Kimmel Live! in their DeLorean last night, and Jimmy got to be the one to break all the bad news about 2015 to them: no, we don’t have flying cards, hoverboards, or peace in the Middle East, and Johnny Carson has long since passed away.
On the bright side, though, we do have smartphones, selfies, and cronuts. And real Nike Mag shoes with power laces, as demonstrated by one Michael J. Fox (“Teen Wolf!” Marty exclaims excitedly). See the Back to the Future Jimmy Kimmel show after the jump. Read More »
I’m excited because tonight is the first episode of The Muppets‘ new ABC prime time television series. We’ve shown you the trailers and the early pitch video, so you probably know by now that Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy have broken up. Well now that Kermit and Piggy are out promoting their new show, they are being forced to talk about their storyline relationship implosion. Last night the former puppet couple were forced to appear together (due to contractual commitments) on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and you can watch the fun interview embedded after the jump.

Actors don’t get to the Dolby Theatre stage without some serious skills, and as revealed on Jimmy Kimmel‘s post-Oscars show last night, there’s no better place to develop those skills than at the Kimmel School of Perfect Acting.
Kimmel proves a fearsome teacher, beating Sean Penn with a pool noodle and forcing Gary Oldman to literally act his way out of a paper bag. “But let me tell you,” an awed Jeff Bridges explains, “when someone lights your script on fire and duct-tapes it to your hands, you’re gonna find a way to say your lines.” Yikes. Terence Fletcher would probably tell this guy to dial it down a notch.

Films destroy and rebuild Los Angeles all the time, but usually it is for nefarious purposes.

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.
