After the 84th annual Academy Awards handed out Oscars to mostly nostalgic winners like Meryl Streep and “The Artist,” Jimmy Kimmel went completely the opposite direction with a hilarious spoof of every movie cliche ever. Even better, he got the biggest names in Hollywood to star in it, a 9-minute movie trailer for a film called “Movie: The Movie.”
As featured on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” the ridiculous plot includes a robot lawyer (Tom Hanks), a gay president (Josh Brolin), a werewolf (Taylor Lautner), an ancient scroll, a dangerous secret agent (Colin Farrell), a dog who plays sports (Air Bud), a black swan (Don Cheadle), a centaur (Gary Oldman), a boat on top of a soul plane with snakes on it (flown by Samuel L. Jackson), a grown man becoming a baby (Jason Bateman), and a naked Kate Beckinsale in bed with Chewbacca from “Star Wars.” Kimmel himself stars as a janitor, along with appearances by Edward Norton, Antonio Banderas, Cameron Diaz, Jeff Goldblum, John Goodman, George Clooney, Helen Mirren, Christoph Waltz, Steven Tyler and more.
Since releasing it on YouTube late Sunday night, the fake movie trailer has already been viewed more than 900,000 times.
