Jimmy Kimmel Extends Deal with ABC For Three More Years
Apologies to Matt Damon, but Jimmy Kimmel will be around to terrorize him in late night for three more years. Kimmel has sealed a three-year contract extension as host and executive producer of “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” the late-night show he has fronted since 2003.

The extension also means Kimmel will remain in place on ABC through his 20th season on the show. The news was announced on Tuesday morning by ABC entertainment president Karey Burke. Kimmel will return to the ABC upfronts stage on Tuesday afternoon, as has become a tradition at the annual event for advertisers.

Kimmel is now one of the veterans of late night, and currently in his 17th season on the show.

How Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky Formed One of Hollywood's Most Enduring Romances

How Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky Formed One of Hollywood's Most Enduring Romances
Sometimes it can be hard to argue that such a thing as fate doesn't exist.  Consider the case of Elsa Pataky's tattoos. There are dozens of them taking up residence on her 5-foot-3 frame, many of which are instantly understandable. There's the "C" initial on the fourth finger of her left hand that husband Chris Hemsworth inked himself last year (she branded him with an "E" in the same spot) and symbols that represent her various family members on her forearm. And back in 2017 she and two friends (including Matt Damon's wife Luciana Barroso) each got a set of three dots on their pinkies to solidify their bestie status.  But it's the diminutive Thor symbol near her...

George and Amal Clooney Turned the Catch-22 Premiere Into a Downright Darling Date Night
George and Amal Clooney are packing birthday celebrations and date night into one evening out! The power duo made an appearance at the premiere of Hulu's Catch-22 adaptation in Hollywood on Tuesday, the day after George turned 58. They were joined by celebrities like George's pal Matt Damon, Kyle Chandler, Kristin Davis, Don Cheadle, and more from the show's cast.

We last saw George and Amal make a public appearance in Scotland at a charity gala back in March. They rarely make red carpet appearances separately anymore, since their gorgeous wedding in 2014. They share two children together, 2-year-old twins Ella and Alexander, and George believes they're turning into pranksters. Sounds like they take after him in that way! Keep reading to see more photos from his and Amal's glam outing, aka date night for Mom and Dad.

Bond v Bourne v Hunt: Who is the Ultimate 21st Century Action Hero?

Tom Jolliffe looks at the three major action heroes of the 21st century…

As we sit and bask in the aftermath of the most recent Mission: Impossible instalment, it seems as good a time as any to take a look at three of the most prolific government Assassins of the last couple of decades. Mr James Bond of course has been running around since the 60’s (earlier of course if you look beyond his cinematic legacy), but I’ll be looking at the most recent Jb, as played by Daniel Craig.

In each franchise, the high points have proven to be some of the best of the century so far, in a genre which has largely fallen some way short of the golden era of action cinema. Craig burst onto the scene with Casino Royale. It’s a film that set a high bar, not only for his follow ups,

Oscars 2020: Best Supporting Actor Predictions
It’s way too early to predict the Oscars, especially in the supporting categories. But looking at Hollywood’s upcoming slates sight unseen, which movies have the right stuff to go the distance?

Studios tend to premiere their movies in Cannes as a launch pad for international release. That’s the case for “Rocketman” starring Taron Egerton as Elton John, Dexter Fletcher’s follow-up to $900-million juggernaut “Bohemian Rhapsody.” It also stars Jamie Bell as songwriter Bernie Taupin and Richard Madden as John’s lover.

And then there’s the return of Terrence Malick, whose “The Tree of Life” won the Palme d’Or in 2011 and went on to score three Oscar nominations. After delivering a series of “Tree of Life” spin-offs, Malick takes a new route this time with “A Hidden Life,” about Austrian conscientious objector Franz Jägerstätter (August Diehl), who would not fight for the Nazis in World War II.

‘Saturday Night Live’ Ratings Rise, Tie Season High With Host Adam Sandler
It was a hosting 24 years in the making — former Saturday Night Live alum Adam Sandler returned to the show for the first time since leaving as a cast member in 1995. The telecast, which also featured appearances by fellow former SNL-ers Chris Rock, Kristen Wiig and Jimmy Fallon, averaged a 4.8 Live+Same Day household rating in the metered markets, and a 1.8 adults 18-49 rating in the markets with local people meters.

The episode, which had Shawn Mendes as musical guest, was way up from SNL‘s most recent original three weeks ago hosted by Emma Stone with musical guest Bts. The 4.8 metered-market household rating equaled SNL’s season high, set by both the holiday show in December hosted by Matt Damon and musical guests Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus and by the Sept. 29, 2018 season premiere with host Adam Driver and musical guest Kanye West.

10 Movie Stars We Want To See In The Next Ocean's Movie

Before the Avengers phenomenon, one of the most impressive movie casts ever assembled was the line-up for Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean's Eleven. The 2001 caper was a remake of the Rat Pack film from 1960 and featured George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, and Julia Roberts, among many others, sharing the screen in a widely entertaining heist film.

‘Shadow’ Film Review: Zhang Yimou Thrillingly Contemplates Duality
Grand spectacle has always been one of master Chinese director Zhang Yimou’s specialities. His wuxia epics feature staggering battles that defy gravity while placed within the context of intrigue-laden historical fictions. When you go see a Yimou vision, you are guaranteed big-scale entertainment paired with high-stakes drama and a dash of ancient wisdom.

That’s exactly what he delivers in marvelous fashion with “Shadow,” his latest lavish feature and one so rivetingly absorbing it could almost make us forget the misstep he had with the Matt Damon vehicle “The Great Wall.” Though largely similar to “Hero” and “House of Flying Daggers” in general form, this new effort sees the visionary storyteller operating in a slightly subtler mode, with fewer flying bodies and more philosophical concerns.

Two feuding kingdoms in this centuries-old saga, Yan and Pen, have a peace treaty that stands as long as the King of Pei (Ryan Zheng

Tom Brady unwittingly added fuel to the fire of Jimmy Kimmel and Matt Damon’s “feud” when the late-night host lured him over to the “Bourne Identity” actor’s house to wreck it.

While the six-time Super Bowl champion was a guest on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Thursday night, Kimmel asked him to show off his famous arm by throwing a perfect spiral.

As sidekick Guillermo pointed out, it was too dangerous for Brady to throw a football inside the studio as “he might kill somebody,” and too risky to aim at one of the columns outside on Hollywood Blvd. as they could take down the whole building and “kill a lot of people.” Yep, Brady is superhero strong.
