The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is a 2005 British-American comic science fiction film based on the book of the same name by Douglas Adams. It stars Martin Freeman, Sam Rockwell, Mos Def, Zooey Deschanel and the voices of Stephen Fry (the guide book) and Alan Rickman (Marvin, the Paranoid Android). Shooting was completed in August 2004 and the movie was released on April 28, 2005 in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, and on the following day in Canada and the United States.

Arthur Dent wakes up to find his house about to be demolished in order to make way for a bypass. He tries delaying the bulldozers by lying down in front of them. Ford Prefect, a friend of Arthur's, convinces him to go to the pub with him. Over a pint of beer (as "muscle relaxant"), Ford explains that he is an alien from a planet in the vicinity of Betelgeuse, and a journalist working on the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, a universal guide book, and that the Earth is to be demolished later that day by a race called Vogons, in order to make way for a hyperspace bypass. Suddenly, a Vogon Constructor Fleet appears in the sky and destroys the planet. Ford saves himself and Arthur by hitching a ride on a Vogon ship. The two are discovered and thrown out of an airlock, but are picked up by the starship Heart of Gold. They find Ford's "semi-half brother" Zaphod Beeblebrox, the President of the Galaxy. He has stolen the ship along with Tricia "Trillian" McMillan, an Earth woman whom Arthur had met previously, and Marvin the Paranoid Android.

Following last night's 84th Annual Academy Awards, Jimmy Kimmel debuted on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live his latest post-Oscars parody video, a trailer for Movie: The Movie, which featured an all-star cast you won't see again in this or any lifetime.
So who's in the funnyman's blockbuster to end all blockbusters?
How about Edward Norton as a secret agent getting hitched to former president George W. Bush played by none other than Dubya's Josh Brolin in a ceremony officiated by Antonio Banderas no less? Or Colin Farrell acting alongside a dog who plays sports? Or Tom Hanks as "Robo Warrior" in an Oscar winner faceoff with Charlize Theron? ("Court is adjourned. Ha ha ha," he quips before blowing her away).
There's also Bryan Cranston as a hot dog vendor, Jeff Goldblum as Gary Oldman's doctor ("so sorry, senator, you're a centaur"), Samuel L. Jackson flying a soul plane, Emily Blunt and John Krasinski as a not so fairy-tale couple in a movie codirected by J.J. Abrams and Martin Scorsese that's produced by Michael Bay.
And we're just getting started.
Wait 'til you see Kate Beckinsale's bedroom scene with Chewbacca and Meryl Streep performing in a mustache.
And of course, Jimmy's old friend, Matt Damon as a Fruit of the Loom character (The Grapes of Wrath?)whom they're going to cut out of the movie, natch ("I'm gonna f--kin' kill you, Kimmel! How do you like them grapes?!")
And yes, even George Clooney as the World's Greatest Scientist.
It's coming to a theater near you. Watch all nine minutes if you dare.
The Queen takes revenge on Helen Mirren by taking over her show prime suspect.
