‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ stars play ‘Family Feud’ on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’

'Jimmy Kimmel Live'
The cast of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” assembled for an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in advance of Monday’s “Avengers” Hollywood premiere. Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner cozied up on the late-night show to talk about the film, which unites heroes from Marvel’s standalone blockbusters. Discussions included how “magical” the filming was for the then-pregnant Johansson as well as Ruffalo’s affection for what he has dubbed Hulk’s “man-canceling” suit. Then, perhaps in a nod to the future “Civil War” storyline the Marvel Cinematic Universe is venturing into, the “Avengers” cast was split into teams to face off in a friendly game of “Family Feud.” In one corner was The Americas, led by Evans, with teammates Ruffalo and Renner. In the other was The Mans, lead by Downey Jr., with Johansson and […]

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ trailer: Marvel unveils cosmic action comedy

A scene from "Guardians of the Galaxy." (Marvel)
The first official trailer for Marvel’s upcoming space adventure, “Guardians of the Galaxy,” debuted Tuesday night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” and the clip delivers some spirited alien action, with exploding spaceships and muscled bad guys, not to mention a few purely comedic moments. The film, due in theaters Aug. 1, is directed by James Gunn (“Super”) and based on the Marvel comic of the same name. Chris Pratt stars as the roguish anti-hero Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord, who steals a mysterious orb and consequently finds himself on the run from powerful villain Ronan (Lee Pace), whose evil plans threaten the universe. Quill is forced to team up with a ragtag squad of alien misfits to battle the cosmic threat. It’s a quirky concept (one of the characters is a furry creature named Rocket Raccoon, voiced by Bradley Cooper), and early footage […]

‘Divergent’ trailer: Shailene Woodley ziplines onto ‘Jimmy Kimmel’

“Divergent” stars Shailene Woodley and Theo James ziplined — yes, actually ziplined — onto “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Monday night to debut the film’s newest trailer. Fans of Veronica Roth’s young-adult book trilogy on which the film is based will remember several key scenes in which characters zipline across Chicago’s skyline, but Woodley deadpanned to late-night talk-show host Kimmel that ziplining is her usual method of transit. “Traffic is just insane,” joked the 22-year-old actress. Woodley, known for her roles in “The Descendants” and “The Spectacular Now,” plays heroine Beatrice “Tris” Prior in “Divergent,” directed by Neil Burger. The story is set in a dystopian future version of Chicago, in which people are tested when they are young and subsequently divided into five factions based on their personalities and virtues. Tris’ personality test reveals she is divergent, or has an aptitude for multiple […]
