Kimmel's talk-show has to up its game dramatically after a new competitor has entered their time slot, Jimmy Fallon's new 'Tonight Show' debuts tonight (Feb 17th) on rival television network NBC.

Let the talk show battles commence.

This will be just the latest big move ABC has made for Kimmel's show, as last week's episode saw the entire ensemble cast of George Clooney's 'The Monuments Men' join the couch, which included his longtime nemesis Matt Damon.

Last Thursday's (Feb 14th) episode also contained a big feature, Kimmel unveiled the 50th anniversary cover of the 'Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.'

The upcoming movie, based on the comic book of the same name, boasts a very talented cast which includes Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana and WWE wrestler Dave Bautista.

The studio's synopsis reads, "'Guardians of the Galaxy' follows brash adventurer Peter Quill (Pratt) who finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe."

Adding, "To evade Ronan, Quill is forced into a truce with a quartet of misfits. When he discovers the power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must rally his ragtag rivals for a last stand - with the galaxy's fate in the balance."

'Guardians of the Galaxy' releases in U.S. theatres on August 1st 2014.
