Mr. and Mrs. Hemsworth did a damn good job when it comes to making babies. According to Chris Hemsworth, though, Liam Hemsworth is the child their parents wish they'd never had! This [joking, duh] reveal came to light during a behind-the-scenes clip from Jimmy Kimmel Live's 2014 Oscars show, which featured A-list stars recreating YouTube hits into Oscar-winning movies. As Chris, 30, and Liam, 24, finished their rendition of "Charlie bit my finger," the Thor hunk got serious with his baby brother. "All jokes aside," he said, "I walked past mom before and I heard her saying to dad, 'Oh, f--k, I wish we'd never had Liam." "She wouldn't say that," Liam said, »

For a movie called Paranoia, there’s precious little here in the way of irrational — or even rational — anxiety or delusional fear or worry about whom to trust with what. There’s precious little of big-name, big-charisma stars Gary Oldman (RoboCop) or Harrison Ford (Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues), who mostly just wander into scenes every once in a while as if to remind you how much cooler and more intense a movie this could have been. There is, alas, a helluva lot of Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), even as it is becoming increasingly clear that his big brother, Chris, »

Meryl Streep can't tell Chris Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth apart, but she thinks they're both “hot as f–k” in “behind-the-scenes” footage from Jimmy Kimmel's YouTube movie trailers produced for his Oscar special on Sunday. “Some films you do for the material, and some you do for the money,” Streep adds in the video (above). “But some films you do because Jimmy Kimmel shows up at your house crying his eyes out like a little bitch.” See video: Jimmy Kimmel Turns YouTube Memes Into Star-Studded Oscar Movies The fake trailers parodying prestige films were based on famous viral videos, »

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire - Lionsgate - Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD Director: Francis Lawrence Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci. Full cast + crew As someone who just plain didn't see the same things in first Hunger Games that caused everyone to fall in love with the franchise, I hope it carries extra weight when I say Catching Fire is actually a pretty solid, entertaining, and intelligent piece of pop culture. It's a much more restrained, thoughtful film than the first, with better character work across the board. It's just an all around more complete vision that doesn't feel compromised and doesn't rush its way through anything. It's obviously recommended for fans...

Nearly everything in Hollywood is a remake of a nostalgic classic or a book adaptation these days. Filmmakers haven’t mined the ranks of YouTube yet, but there’s plenty of untapped potential as far as viral videos are concerned. We say this jokingly, although it doesn’t seem terribly far-fetched — especially since Jimmy Kimmel recently gave a few viral vids a Hollywood makeover. How long will it be before we see Chris and Liam Hemsworth starring alongside Meryl Streep in Bitman Begins? YouTube favorite “Charlie Bit My Finger” was the inspiration behind the moody Nolan-inspired spoof. Then there’s Ameowdeus (a play on the amazing 1984 Miloš Forman film), which is a surreal twist on Keyboard Cat, Hamster on a Piano and Dramatic...

Every year after the Oscars, Jimmy Kimmel puts on his own star-studded show, usually poking fun of Hollywood and its movies. This year, he enlisted the help of some of some popular actors to turn YouTube videos into big budget films, including: * "David After Dentist" and "Double Rainbow," starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Samuel L. Jackson, and Seth Rogen. * "Charlie Bit My Finger," starring Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Chris Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth. * "Keyboard Cat," "Hamster on a Piano" and "Dramatic Chipmunk," starring Kevin Spacey, Christoph Waltz, Gary Oldman, Ben Kingsley, Abbie Cornish and Mandy Patinkin. * "Sweet Brown - Ain't Nobody Got Time For That" starring Queen Latifah, Barkhad Abdi, Adam Driver and Matt Damon. Watch everything below.

Last night's Academy Awards was a clash of cinematic titans, with Matthew McConaughey snatching Best Actor from Leonardo DiCaprio and Cate Blanchett triumphing as Best Actress over legends like Meryl Streep. Nevertheless, the evening's most profound battle was based in the animal kingdom: In one of four goofy fake trailers aired during ABC's post-Oscars special, Jimmy Kimmel envisioned viral video sensations "Keyboard Cat" and "Hamster on a Piano" as dueling composers in the Amadeus-parodying "Ameowadeus."

On last night's post-Oscars show, Jimmy Kimmel presented a bunch of parody trailers based on viral videos, including such timely favorites as "Keyboard Cat" and "Charlie Bit Me." What if those were the true stories that inspired big-budget movies? Behold Meryl Streep, Chris and Liam Hemsworth, Tom Hanks, Queen Latifah, Adam Driver, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Kevin Spacey, Christoph Waltz, Ben Kingsley, and Barkhad Abdi, among others, in "Bitman Begins," "Ameowdeus," "Sweet Brown: Ain't Nobody Got Time for That," and "David After Dentist Double Rainbow Oh My God! in 3D." »

In case you were blessed with the superhuman ability to withstand more television after enduring the 3 1/2 hour Oscar ceremony, then perhaps you tuned in (late) last night for a very special episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Or perhaps you went straight to bed like the rest of us. But no worries, because the highlights are now online. As is becoming tradition, the talk show host rounded up a small handful of stars to act silly in some videos, and Kimmel dropped a pair viral video inspired trailers. "Bitman Begins" kicks things off giving a dramatic retelling of "Charlie Bit My Finger" via Chris and Liam Hemsworth as the sibling pair, with Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks also stopping by. After that is "Amewodeus," with Kevin Spacey, Gary Oldman, Christoph Waltz, Abbie Cornish and Mandy Patinkin, giving "Keyboard Cat," "Hamster On A Piano" and "Dramatic Chipmunk" the big screen treatment. It's »

Jimmy Kimmel always pulls out all the stops on his post Oscar-show, but this year he’s gone truly above and beyond. Is there any doubt that he is the King Of Late Night?
Our plan is to escort the movie business into the 21st century, so we enlisted the help of some of the greatest talents in the world of film to help us adapt popular YouTube videos into big-budget Hollywood movies.
Jimmy Kimmel is switching it up this year! During his now-annual After the Oscars special, instead of doing a follow-up to 2012's Movie: The Movie and last year's Movie: The Movie 2V, the late-night talk show host decided to reveal four trailers of YouTube-inspired adaptation. Yes, they're hilarious and there are some huge stars involved. The first stars Liam Hemsworth and older brother Chris Hemsworth, along with Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks. The intense drama tells the story of what happened to the brothers from the hilarious, and adorable, YouTube video that gave us the line, "Ouch, Charlie. Charlie bit me! He bit my finger!" The title? Bitman Begins. But that »
To mark the release of Paranoia on 10th March, we’ve been given 5 copies to give away on Blu-ray.
The world’s two most powerful tech billionaires and bitter adversaries (Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman) will stop at nothing to outwit and destroy each other’s business empires. But when a young rising star (Liam Hemsworth) falls between them, he becomes trapped in the middle of the rivals’ life-and-death game of corporate espionage. By the time he realises his life is in danger, he is in far too deep and knows too much »
Jimmy Kimmel enlisted several Hollywood stars and Oscar nominees to star in film trailer versions of YouTube classics last night (March 2).
Viral videos including Charlie Bit My Finger, Keyboard Cat and Double Rainbow were transformed into epic promos of future fictional dramas.
Kimmel's enemy Matt Damon also stars "in his most important deleted scene yet", before the real Sweet Brown interrupts him.
Jimmy Kimmel certainly had something special planned for his post-Academy Awards episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Right at the top of the show, Kimmel said adapting books was a thing of the past and it was time to move on to YouTube videos. That leads to four different trailers, each of which were amazing, based on popular clips from the video-sharing site.
First, Martin Scorsese presents "Bitman Begins," which is a Christopher Nolan-esque take on the "Charlie Bit My Finer" video, starring Chris Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth as brothers at war. Rounding out the cast was Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, but the real star of the clip was the rooftop showdown between the brothers. Liam just likes to bite too much.
As he does every year, Jimmy Kimmel debuted silly, star-studded fake movie trailers on his show following the Oscars. This time, they were inspired by viral YouTube videos. Here are two of them. Bitman Begins, based on the family video Charlie Bit My Finger, in which an infant boy bites his toddler brother’s finger, features Oscar winners Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep as well as real life brothers Chris Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth. The trippy Ameowdeus, a take on Keyboard Cat, Hamster on a Piano and Dramatic Chipmunk, stars Kevin Spacey, Christoph Waltz, Gary Oldman, Ben Kingsley, Abbie Cornish and Mandy Patinkin. »

How did Jimmy Kimmel follow up Movie: The Movie and Movie: The Movie Twovie on his ninth annual post-Oscar special? By rolling out four movie trailers based on hugely popular YouTube videos -- with the hopes of turning those into viral hits. Photo: Tom Hanks, Joseph Gordon-Levitt Get Weird on Jimmy Kimmel's Oscar Special First up: Bitman Begins, introduced by Martin Scorsese. The plot? "Hunger, incarceration and revenge threaten a family in a visceral action-packed thriller that calls into question the human need for vengeance."

Every year, Jimmy Kimmel gives us a gift: a hilarious post-Oscars skit. This year, he gave us several skits of famous movies crossed with some of YouTube's most popular videos. The first one had us rolling on the floor with laughter: "Bitman Begins," starring Chris and Liam Hemsworth. It's Batman Begins plus "Charlie Bit Me," and it is perfect. Take a look at Kimmel's version - starring the Hemsworths, Meryl Streep, and Tom Hanks - and the original video. Here's the original video: »

Every year Jimmy Kimmel puts together an epic, star-studded spoof video to air on his annual "After the Oscars" special. While you'll have to wait until Sunday (March 2) to truly find out what Kimmel has in store, you can watch a clip from 2014's edition, featuring Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Chris Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth, below.
The first look clip starts out with Streep telling her son, Chris Hemsworth, to "let it go, it's been 30 years." (Unfortunately, it does not lead directly into a "Frozen" singalong, no matter how hard we want that to happen.)
Then we see Hanks, dressed as a monk, where he speaks with a foxy-looking (but imprisoned) Liam Hemsworth.
What does it all mean?! Find out on Kimmel's post-Oscars special on Sunday (March 2).
