  1. Reuters - Grammy-winning RB singer Etta James is terminally ill, her live-in physician said in an interview this week that confirmed reports of the singer's fading health.

  2. Taking on the role of John le Carré's master spy, George Smiley, involves navigating two enormous obstacles. First, the legendary [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/25783/personmain.jhtml"]Alec Guinness[/url] claimed the character for himself in the beloved BBC miniseries of "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" from 1979. Second, outside the more descriptive world of the novels, Smiley is a mystery, a silent, poker-faced old pro who knows the spy game too well to betray his thoughts or emotions, if he has any at all. [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2011/12/16/gary-oldman-tinker-tailor-soldier-spy/"][img]http://mtv.mtvnimages.com/uri/mgid:uma:video:mtv.com:720297?height=288&width=512[/img][/url] But [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/47550/personmain.jhtml"]Gary Oldman[/url] has proved he is up to the task. His performance in the new film adaptation of "[url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/479606/moviemain.jhtml"]Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy[/url]" received universal praise from critics as one of his finest and one on par with Guinness'. Oldman opened up to MTV News about playing Smiley and the satisfaction the part gave him. Personally for Oldman, the role means more than the character's history. "First of all, I haven't really played a leading role in ten years, so the past ten years have been really fantasy-based with Gordon [in Christopher Nolan's Batman films] and Sirius Black [in the 'Harry Potter' films]. It's a colossal role in that sense," he said. Aside from playing his first lead role in years, Oldman also got to approach a character who internalizes most of his thoughts and emotions. George Smiley's status as an icon of TV and literature also added another layer of complexity to the role. "It was iconic before I even came," Oldman said. "I mean, there are roles that you play that can become that. It was an opportunity to really live in front of the camera. I've played those people who have had to express themselves emotionally, in a physical way. He was a great opportunity to just breathe." "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" opens wide today (December 16).

  5. By Rob Markman Nobody puts work in like Wale. This past year the DMV rapper dropped the Self Made, Vol. 1 compilation with his Maybach Music cohorts, then he went on to drop his own The Eleven One Eleven Theory mixtape and of course his sophomore LP Ambition. Yes, Wale is still grinding, but with his new video for “Slight Work,” the MMG MC, Big Sean and the clip’s co-director Chris Brown are just having a good ole time. "Man, this video is just fun," Brown told MTV News on Thursday. "I mean, we're young, so it's only right to just do what we wanna do." "This is for the fans," Wale added. The Diplo-produced club track is easily the most energetic song on Ambition, and it seems its video will be just as upbeat. In one scene, Wale and Big Sean — wearing a fur and multiple gold chains — rap to the camera as scantily clad models dance in a graffiti-laced background. "You don't understand, man, we were just those young players looking at the OG's like, 'Damn, that's what we're trying to be,' " Big Sean said. Brown, who is co-directing with Godfrey Tabarez, seemed most excited about the collaboration. Yes, he was working the camera, but Breezy was thrilled to be kicking it with his friends too. "They done gave us a budget now," he laughed about how the trio grew from young aspiring artists to professionals with enough money to carry out their vision. "We can just play around and have fun on set." Are you anticipating the "Slight Work" video? Tell us in the comments!

  16. [img]http://moviesblog.mtv.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/expendables2_wide.jpg[/img] You will be forgiven for not expecting nuance in the promotional material for "[url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/475178/moviemain.jhtml"]The Expendables 2[/url]." Despite what the marketing team might think, there doesn't need to be much other than a list of names against a black background, maybe crafted out of bullets or fire or blood. You know those names -- Stallone, Statham, Li, Willis, Van Damme, and Schwarzenegger, to name a few -- and what the first "Expendables" movie was about. [url="http://www.aintitcool.com/node/52302"]The new one-sheet[/url] shows Stallone standing in the frame of a "2" carved out of concrete, lit ablaze against a rocky foreground. Check that out, plus the first "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" poster, beyond the jump. [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/expendables2_poster.jpg"][img]http://moviesblog.mtv.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/expendables2_poster.jpg[/img][/url] Stallone is holding a gun, and he means business, all business. How could you expect anything different? "Expendables 2" drops in the summer, when we'll all be thirsting for just a little more action than the norm. On the contrary, [url="http://movies.ign.com/dor/objects/63794/abraham-lincoln-vampire-hunter/images/abraham-lincoln-vampire-hunter-20111214064235670.html"]the poster[/url] for "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" teases the action, rather than dumping us right in it. There's Honest Abe sitting in a chair underneath a full moon, holding his hat in one hand and an axe in the other. We can't see his face, but we don't need to. [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/abe_poster.jpg"][img]http://moviesblog.mtv.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/abe_poster.jpg[/img][/url] In [url="http://movies.ign.com/dor/objects/63794/abraham-lincoln-vampire-hunter/images/abraham-lincoln-vampire-hunter-20111214064243446.html"]another poster[/url], Abe holds the same pose while sitting in the Oval Office, always a reliable hub for undead-killing action. The serious tone is befitting of the very serious official synopsis, which reads, "'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' explores the secret life of our greatest President, and the untold story that shaped our nation." Because, yes, all of that happened. The Confederacy was led by vampires, and Abe himself rode out on horseback to slay their leader, Jefferson Dracula. His hat was made of magic, his beard made of silver, and night hunters everywhere trembled wherever he walked. I need to believe it; I [i]want[/i] to believe it.

  17. By Lauren Kearney Etta James, best known for her beautiful rendition of the ballad “At Last,” is now terminally ill, according to her live-in doctor, Dr. Elaine James. The doctor asked for fans to pray for the Blues legend who has been suffering from leukemia, dementia and kidney failure for the past few years. The 73-year-old singer was hospitalized earlier this year in May for treatment of the blood infection sepsis and a urinary tract infection, but as of the last two weeks, her leukemia has been declared incurable. Dr. James—who is of no relation to the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer—told Riverside Press Enterprise that she wanted to go public to let fans know the severity of the situation. "They know she's been sick, but not how sick," she said, adding that Etta James is unable to communicate well at this stage in her sickness. Etta James is leaving behind quite a legacy. Her music career spanned over the last five decades and has inspired legends-in-the-making, such as Beyonce and Adele. She is included in the Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time and in Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time for “At Last.” [url=http://rapfix.mtv.com/2011/12/16/blues-singer-etta-james-terminally-ill-with-leukemia/]View the full article[/url]

  19. By William E. Ketchum III With a solo project, group album, and a release from his protégé all on the way, Cam’ron is gearing up to have a busy 2012. In a video interview with Trap.TV, Cam’ron took out his smartphone to show the freshly-emailed cover art for his upcoming Boss of All Bosses Vol. 3 mixtape with Vado and DJ Drama. Then he announced that his next solo album would arrive next April. Cam said that araabMuzik produced 10 of the 17 songs on Boss Of All Bosses 3 and that the only guest emcee on the project is Jim Jones. “I’m always open to new production cause at the end of the day it ain’t about a name, to me it’s about what’s hot,” he explained. “It ain’t about the name.” A different promotional video has state that the project will be released on Friday (December 16). Cam’ron also confirmed that Vado has officially signed to Interscope Records, but release details for the reunion album by The Diplomats are still pending. “It’s definitely coming out, but we don’t know what label,” Cam’ron said. When asked if Interscope would be the label home, he responded, “They’re negotiating, they put some numbers up. [The other labels] are undisclosed.” During Labor Day weekend this summer, Cam’ron dropped Boss Of All Bosses 2.8: Road to 3.0. Since then, he has leaked songs and released viral and music videos. At the end of the video clip, Cam’ron said that his next studio album should be available in April 2012.

  24. [img]http://moviesblog.mtv.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/jack_giant_killer.jpg[/img] Hollywood loves its remakes, and fairy tales are the easiest money of all. What child or adult in America isn't familiar with the story of Jack and the beanstalk, even if they're not clear on the specifics? Then again, the specifics can be largely invented based on whatever tired parent is telling the story to his kid: there are some beans, a beanstalk, some giants and a guy named Jack who fights them or tries to, at least. In this regard, "[url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/417153/moviemain.jhtml"]Jack the Giant Killer[/url]" looks wholly familiar. The [url="http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/wb/jackthegiantkiller/"]trailer[/url] opens with [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/196267/personmain.jhtml"]Nicholas Hoult[/url] as the titular Jack, palming a fistful of magic beans while a serious man tells him to be careful. Well, you know how it goes: the beans fall in some soil and water, then shoot up up thousands of feet into the sky, carrying Jack's house and the princess of the realm with it. To get her back, Jack must climb into the air and navigate the world of the giants without getting squashed. A war breaks out, of course, and a bunch of flaming trees get tossed through the air (danger!). How the giants lived in the clouds defies all conventional rules of aerodynamics, but hey, it's a movie about cloud giants. We'll let it go. "Giant Killer," directed by Bryan Singer, also stars Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Ewan McGregor and Bill Nighy. It'll come out next June, so you know where this is going: "Avengers" crossover. Yep, it'll end with Thor landing in the clouds, swinging his big hammer and swearing, "I say thee nay!" to a bunch of confused giants. CAN'T WAIT!
