Jimmy Kimmel's post-Oscars movie/trailer spoof from 2012, "Movie: The Movie," has racked up almost 20 million views on YouTube -- and now it's got a sequel.
Featuring Academy Award nominees Jessica Chastain ("Zero Dark Thirty") and Bradley Cooper ("Silver Linings Playbook"), "Movie: The Movie 2V" is set to debut on "Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Oscars" on Sunday night.
Watch a preview clip:
...Was that Joaquin Phoenix as a zombie? Because if so, we could make an "I'm Still Here" joke, but we're going to take the high road.
The original "Movie: The Movie" starred Hollywood royalty Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, George Clooney, and Martin Scorsese, among others, and fit right in among Kimmel's patented celeb-studded videos, including "I'm F---ing Matt Damon" and the response, "I'm F---ing Ben Affleck." The nine-minute trailer, which advertised "the biggest, most star-studded, and spectacular non-existent film the world has ever seen," even moved to actual theaters last March.
The 2013 edition of "JKL: After the Oscars" bows after your local news across the country and promises a cavalcade of stars, including Chastain, Cooper, Jude Law, Jennifer Aniston, and others. Oh, and thunder sticks.
Do you plan to watch, or is it past your bedtime? Let us know if you're psyched for "2V" (and what you thought of the original "Movie: The Movie") in the comments!
"Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Oscars" airs February 24 after late local news (and at 10 PM PT).
