After Sunday’s Academy Awards, late night host Jimmy Kimmel jokingly made his own submission for next year’s best picture Oscar with a trailer for his new film “Movie: The Movie.”

The broad spoof of Hollywood films, which stars A-list actors like Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, George Clooney, and Gary Oldman, premiered on a special Sunday broadcast of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

Oscar winner Daniel Day Lewis also stars “as you’ve never seen him before: as Tyler Perry as George Washington.”

The trailer features Tom Hanks as a robot, Kate Beckinsale getting it on with Chewbacca, Meryl Streep with a mustache, and Matt Damon — who Kimmel said may be cut out of the movie entirely — as a grape. According to Kimmel, the film will come out this summer, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
