Everyone was so excited when Jimmy Kimmel moved his show up to 11:35, but they forgot one thing. One very important thing.
Kimmel never thought about the fact that you can't just move your show up without checking the studio sign-in sheet first, because if he had, he would have seen that Will Ferrell and Ryan Gosling film their QVC knife show, "Knife Guys," on Wednesdays at that same time.
And last night, the oversight made for some awkward moments and hilarious television. Check out the video after the jump!
Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams and Isaac Hempstead-Wright made quite an impact when they sang the opening credits sequence for the "Game of Thrones" season one DVD, but this time they're back with one better. For the season two DVD, the trio of Stark children have decided to lay down some sick beats for their own rendition of the title song. Didn't you know there's beat boxing in Westeros?
The result is pretty amazing. Not only are they beat boxing, but the three child actors also (sort of) narrate the opening credits. If we're not mistaking, that's Turner -- aka Sansa Stark -- rapping for the majority of the video, though even she admits that she isn't the best at it.
"I can't rap, but I'm going to say something in a big cap," she sings as Williams cackles in the background. Watch the entire video after the jump, and love your life just a little bit more today.
The savvy moviegoer is well aware of the fact that part of an actor's role in being in and making movies is promoting them. There are a variety of ways in which to do this, which most of the time involve interviews with the media, boring stuff like that. Suffice it to say that the promotional machine gets a little worn and monotonous at times, so for those of us lucky enough to take part in some of these events out-of-the-box promo things are worth mentioning, particularly when they involve riding around in a tank with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Yep, you read that correctly, instead of doing a press conference or roundtable interview, Schwarzenegger invited a select group of movie reporters to come ride in his tank, one that he owns and operates, to experience a taste of some of the action served up in his return to movies as a leading man in "The Last Stand."
Here are the highlights from the trip:
If you've been on a movie news site like Variety or The Hollywood Reporter in the last few months, you've undoubtedly seen one of those "For Your Consideration" ads that try really hard to make certain actors and films "award worthy," as if you had a say.
Those ads are usually for respectable movies that actually do have a shot at their sought-after categories, but what about the ones you don't see? The folks over at NextMovie have rounded up a collection of some of the lesser-known (and potentially not real) Oscar campaigns.

Guess what, Middle-earth dwellers. Today is J.R.R. Tolkien's 121st birthday!
So no doubt you'll want to throw a hobbit-filled shindig, but there are a few things you need to understand about throwing a "Lord of the Rings" bash that includes all of the favors that make the on-screen fun look so real.
We have put together a helpful GIF guide walk you through the steps of making your Tolkiened-out party worthy of the man himself.
Movie characters are people too. Well, they're imaginary people for the most part, but that doesn't mean that they don't have a few aspects of their lifestyles that they'd like to change in 2013.
With so many great characters in the year 2012 (you can find out Top Ten here), there are more than a few that have some stuff they can work on in 2013.
Here are the New Years resolutions for the movie characters of 2012!
While you were watching "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," did you wonder to yourself, "If I lived in Middle-earth, what kind of creature would I be?" You probably didn't because that's a terribly odd thing to think while watching a movie, but in case you did, the LOTR Project has put together a handy quiz to help you decide whether you belong to the world of hobbits, dwarves, or wizards.
The quiz is fairly straight forward, but get ready to think a little outside of the box. You'll have to answer questions about your feeling towards gold, whether you like guests, or how you approach a battle scenario. Needless to say, things are going to get pretty geeky.
And, yes, there are still 351 days until "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" opens in theaters, so stop asking.
Thanks to TheOneRing.net for the heads up!
The internet is a wonderful place, and it's only richer by people like Samuel L. Jackson. During his recent interview with The Huffington Post's Mike Ryan for "Django Unchained," Jackson set off a string of truth bombs better than any meme or fake eagle-grabbing-baby video.
The topics of conversation varied from Jackson's desire to be an extra on "Breaking Bad" to his feelings about the later oeuvre of his "Unbreakable" director M. Night Shyamalan.
We sampled some of Jackson's choicest quotes after the jump, but please do yourself a favor and read the entire thing over at HuffPo.
Andy Serkis' Gollum in "The Lord of the Rings" and now "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" has often been praised as the gold standard that all CGI characters should be measured against, but while he might best the greatest, the schizophrenic creature certainly wasn't the first.
One of the very first fully-CGI characters was none other than the much maligned Jar Jar Binks. In an historic event (and thanks to MTV News' Josh Horowitz), Gollum and Jar Jar were able to have a short conversation during a recent press junket for "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey."
Will we ever see such a monumental day for CGI characters again? Probably not. This is probably as good as it's ever going to get.
"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" opens on December 14.
If you are one of the many people afflicted with the "Twilight Saga" blues, then we have just the cure for you. The brilliant minds behind Bad Lip Reading videos have tackled the "Twilight Saga" yet again, and have created some of their best work yet.
Taking some of the most emotional moments from the "Twilight" series and turning them into some of its funniest is no easy feat, but the lip reading experts manage to do so with flying colors here. Just what were Edward and Bella talking about when he was leaving her in "New Moon" if it wasn't about her taking her rabbit to the vet? And remember that time when Bella crashed Jacob's dirt bike because she ran over a gummy bear? Yeah, those were some of our favorite scenes too. Check out the video after the jump.
