After the success of his hilarious all-star fake trailer, Movie: The Movie, which premiered after last year’s Oscars — and has been viewed over 20 million times on YouTube alone, more than 30 million overall — Jimmy Kimmel has come back with a follow-up. As he says, “When you have a big success in Hollywood, there’s only one reasonable thing you can do: cheapen it with a sequel.”
He’s not entirely joking. This year’s Movie: The Movie 2V isn’t quite as loaded with stars, but it’s still a very funny parody of a disaster movie, with “sexy vampires, sexy zombies, sexy mummies, sexy leprechauns”, and a cast that includes Jessica Chastain, Bradley Cooper (yes, there he is grimacing in the photo), Channing Tatum, Matt Damon, Kerry Washington, Amanda Seyfried and Oprah Winfrey in a very special cameo that may well be the real Oprah.
Here it is. Tonight Jimmy Kimmel Live premieres a new featurette, Behind the Scenes of Movie the Movie 2V. How did they get Channing Tatum’s special effects?
