First look: See the new 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' opening

Posted on

Jimmy Kimmel has been parachuting/zip-lining/rappelling his way around Hollywood in the opening credits of Jimmy Kimmel Live for the last three years. He’s must be getting pretty tired. Perhaps that’s why he’s decided to shake things up again and film a new intro.

The ABC late-night talk show will unveil that new sequence tonight—only the third in the show’s 12 year-history—and if you are too eager to wait or too tired to stay up until at 11:35 p.m., you can get a peek of it exclusively here. Brought to life by big-screen visual effects company Industrial Light & Magic, the opener sees a dapperly suited Kimmel power up the city of Los Angeles before the camera goes landmark sightseeing. Check it out above.
