They work almost year-round, filming and promoting the hit TV show and taking three months to go on tour. Now, a movie based on those live concerts is hitting theaters, just before the cast heads back to set to film the third season. [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2011/08/11/glee-the-3d-concert-movie-song/"][img]http://mtv.mtvnimages.com/uri/mgid:uma:video:mtv.com:680088?height=288&width=512[/img][/url] For the Gleeks out there counting down the days until the movie opens on Friday, MTV News recently caught up with the cast to get the lowdown on the concert film. In the spirit of the musical nature of the show, the movie, and even our own "[url="http://www.mtv.com/videos/news/656938/glee-goes-to-new-york-city-in-the-second-season-finale.jhtml#id=1648442"]Glee-caps[/url]," we had the very talented and energetic actors give us a quick recap — in song — of what "Glee: The 3D Concert Movie" is all about.

  6. Add rapper Nas to the long list of MCs set to guest star on Dr. Dre's much anticipated Detox album. Escobar recently paid a visit to BET's 106 & Park show to hype his "Nasty" single when he confirmed that he laid a few bars for the West Coast king. During Nas' chat with BET host Rocsi he also touched on fallen star Amy Winehouse. "She was a genuine person," said Nas. "She was like, real. When you talked to her, she was real. She was struggling with a lot of things in her life, but she was a real artist. She was like a sister to me, like a little sister. We had the same birthday so she just had this big, big spirit for this little body. You know what I mean? I wish she was here today, man. God bless her soul."

  8. Oh, Peter Bishop! What will the world be like without you in it! Well, "[url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/tag/fringe"]Fringe[/url]" fans will certainly get a taste of it when the show kicks off its new season on September 23. But [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/tag/joshua-jackson"]Joshua Jackson[/url] is hoping that his character's season-ending disappearing act doesn't last too long, or he might be out of a job. [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2011/08/11/fringe-joshua-jackson/"][img]http://mtv.mtvnimages.com/uri/mgid:uma:video:mtv.com:681168?height=288&width=512[/img][/url] "Right now we have this massive, cool cliffhanger," he recalled to MTV News at Comic-Con. "At the end of the season is that this character, my character, not only dies [but] like when we want to 'X' somebody out on 'Fringe,' you’ve got to erase them from all of time. [So he] not only dies, he had never existed." Ok, so what does that mean for the show's still-too-long-away season premiere? "So the beginning of this season is showing the world without him," he teased. "And also showing all the characters, but how they would be if their lives have never interacted. It’s the world that we know as 'Fringe,' but there's something slightly tweaked about everybody and then eventually, I'm hoping, they’ll fold me back into it." Wait, Josh, are you trying to tell us there's a chance you might not come back? "They haven’t not paid me yet and generally that’s how you find out you're fired is when the checks stop coming in or on twitter these days," he joked. But, the bottom line, he noted, is that for a time being, at least, Peter just won't be anywhere in sight. "You will see not much of me," he said. "It will be much more about the world without me than it will be about the world with me. The idea is to tell the story of what life is like without the guy, so I may or may not be there in a certain sense, but that is not what the thrust of the story will be."

  14. [i]by Sterling Wong[/i] The buzz for December’s much anticipated "[url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/456914/moviemain.jhtml"]The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo[/url]” film adaptation is slowly but surely building. First came the kickass teaser trailer released at the beginning of summer with its memorable tagline, “The Feel Bad Movie of Christmas”. [img]http://moviesblog.mtv.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/dragontattoo.jpg[/img] And today, via [url="http://dragontattoo.com/"]the film’s official website[/url], comes character profiles for 18 characters, including, of course, ones for [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/13830/personmain.jhtml"]Daniel Craig’s Mikael Blomkvist[/url] and [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/1068429/personmain.jhtml"]Rooney Mara’s Lisbeth Salander[/url]. We also get a sneak preview of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’s score for the film. Lisbeth, according to her profile, is “pale and anorexic-looking and all but mute [and] she radiates hostility.” But “her eyes, all but lost in heavy black make-up, hint at the hurt and vulnerability inside.” Craig’s Bomkvist, meanwhile, is “just a financial reporter who works hard” and is “unprepared for what actually awaits him.” While browsing the character bios on the site, make sure you don’t have your speakers on mute, because on autoplay is a sampling of Reznor and Ross’s film score. Reznor and Ross last collaborated with “Dragon Tattoo” director David Fincher on the brilliant score of last fall’s “The Social Network,” so expectations are high for this project, and the duo doesn’t disappoint. The seven-minute long sample track, played on a loop as you browse the site, is minimal and evocative, and pretty darn eerie-sounding. In other words, perfect for what should be a dark, unsettling thriller. And we know from the teaser trailer that Reznor and Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O worked on an impossibly cool cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” for the movie. So if we go by what we’ve heard so far and seen so far, “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” looks like it will more than live up to the hype. Can Christmas come already?

  16. Young Money starlet Nicki Minaj continues to have a banner year with movie roles, sellout tours and a hit album in Pink Friday. Yesterday (August 10), Billboard announced that Minaj has the biggest selling solo single from a female rapper in almost a decade. The single “Super Bass” has made quite the leap on Billboard’s Hot 100 charts, making it the highest charting solo hit for a female rapper since Missy Elliot and her “Work It” single which hit the No. 2 slot in 2002. Nicki Minaj’s debut album Pink Friday has helped to keep the Cash Money brand name prominent along with Young Money boss Lil Wayne and fellow label mate Drake. Cash Money co-founder and fellow CEO Ronald “Slim” Williams appears to be satisfied with Nicki’s success and gave the rap star some well-deserved praise. “Nicki isn't like any other female rapper,” says "Slim" Williams, “We knew she had the goods when Lil Wayne signed her. She's not a female rapper -- she's a pop star who happens to rap.” Slim’s claim certainly holds weights when considering the company Niciki Minaj is in now. Lauryn Hill, Da Brat, M.I.A., Lil Mama all have hit the top 10 with Hill’s “Doo Wop” the crowning champ of them all as the highest selling rap single from a female of all time. Pink Friday continues to move units as Nielsen Soundscan reports that Nicki’s album passed the 1.5 million mark last week. The album didn’t rush out the gate but with “Super Bass” showing incredible staying power and her upcoming movie project, Nicki Minaj and her momentum is apparently picking up speed.

  21. [url="http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1668835/the-help-emma-stone-reviews.jhtml"][b]FROM MTV MOVIES:[/b][/url] "It feels kind of scary saying this because that means it's only downhill, but it's been the best year of my life," [url="http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1653058/emma-stone-actress-were-most-thankful-2010.jhtml"]Emma Stone told MTV News[/url] late last year as we honored her as the actress we were most thankful for in 2010. The past eight months, however, have hardly been downhill, and Stone might soon have to rework her conception of a superlative year. The year 2011 has seen Stone, among other things, [url="http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1654252/emma-stone-golden-globe-nomination-made-her-year-truly-bizarre.jhtml"]nominated for her first Golden Globe[/url], film her [url="http://splashpage.mtv.com/2011/07/19/amazing-spider-man-emma-stone-gwen-stacy-2/"]lead role in "The Amazing Spider-Man"[/url] and win advance plaudits for a dramatic, yet at times comedic, turn in "[url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/461429/moviemain.jhtml"]The Help[/url]," which hit theaters Wednesday (August 10). [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2011/08/11/the-help-review-emma-stone/"][img]http://mtv.mtvnimages.com/uri/mgid:uma:video:mtv.com:659757?height=288&width=512[/img][/url] In a summer filled with wizards and robots and all manner of nasty alien invaders, some critics are pointing to "The Help" as perhaps the finest drama of the season, highlighting not only Stone's performance, but that of Viola Davis, who could well be part of the upcoming awards-season hubbub. Other reviewers, though, haven't been as kind, citing a jumbled story structure and an overall maudlin tone that distracts from the weighty themes of the film. Read on for those critiques and more: [b]The Story[/b] "What the film lacks is a strong point of view. The story is all over the place on that front, bouncing from one perspective to another. ... Skeeter Phelan (Emma Stone) has just graduated from college in Mississippi in the 1960s and returned home. The town is divided, Black and White, and nowhere is this more evident than in Skeeter's social circle, young women married as soon as possible, raising children — or, more accurately, having their children raised by the Black women who work for them. ... Skeeter wants to be a serious writer, and a New York editor (Mary Steenburgen) needs something to judge her on. So Skeeter, having gotten a job at the local newspaper writing a housecleaning column, asks Clark for help with tips. But what she really wants is to know how the 'help' is treated, about the world from their perspective, for a book." — Bill Goodykoontz, [i][url="http://www.azcentral.com/thingstodo/movies/articles/2011/08/08/20110808help-movie-review-goodykoontz.html"]The Arizona Republic[/url][/i] [url="http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1668835/the-help-emma-stone-reviews.jhtml"][b]Read the full story at MTV Movies![/b][/url] [url=http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2011/08/11/the-help-review-emma-stone/]View the full article[/url]
  22. Another edition of “RapFix Live” is in the bag and “the cornerstone of Hip Hop” continues to make its mark as one of the best live rap talk shows around. On Wednesday (August 10), the couches of “RapFix Live” were graced with the presence of Detroit rhyme slinger Royce Da 5’9 along with an in-depth interview conducted by host Sway with the Ferrari Boyz Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame. Nickel Nine is basking in newfound success as a recent signee to Shady Records and a hit EP alongside his longtime friend and label head Eminem. On “RapFix Live,” Sway has imparted a tradition that any artist who visits the set has to end the show off with a freestyle. Last week on the show, Game unleashed a few bars as has Beanie Sigel, Yelawolf, Cali Swag District and a host of others previously. As one of the most respect rappers in the game, Royce defied Sway by not dropping the freestyle for quite a unique reason. “This is the segment I have to explain why I’m not rapping,” said a joking yet semi-serious Royce. “Since we’re living in the Internet era, the technological era, there used to be a point in time where I could kick a verse and I could go do tons of radio stations and kick the same verse. Since the Internet is accessible as it is, as soon as I kick a verse the verse is dead.” Royce continued to explain further why he holds his verses for himself now. “I can’t go do it again because then I get attacked for recycling lines,” said Royce. “Since I haven’t been in the studio and I’ve been on the road so much, the only verses that I have memorized right now are verses off the Slaughterhouse album. I don’t want to say it because I’d give it away and then have to go rewrite that verse for the album.” Royce did finalize his point by saying if he had rhymes loaded up to share, he would have dropped one for the fans checking out the show. However, Sway playfully warned future guests that the excuse Royce provided will no longer suffice. A big salute to Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka Flame and Royce Da 5’9.

Perhaps not the likeliest combination, but it's one we're about to see all the same. David Yates, director of the final four "Potter" films, and writer Steve Kloves, who adapted all but one of Jo Rowling's magical novels for the big screen, are reportedly reteaming with Warner Bros. for [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2011/02/01/the-stand-adaptation-inspires-a-look-back-at-stephen-king-horror/"]a multi-movie version of "The Stand,"[/url] the epic post-apocalypse novel that many consider King's finest work, [url="http://www.hitfix.com/blogs/motion-captured/posts/exclusive-potter-masterminds-steve-kloves-and-david-yates-reunite-for-the-stand"]HitFix[/url] reports. "The Stand," for those who haven't read the book or seen the '90s era miniseries, tells the story of a group of men and women who survive a superflu outbreak that claims the lives of 99.4% of the world's human population. The reader follows an eclectic cast of characters that includes the mild-mannered Stuart Redman, mom-to-be Frannie Goldsmith, the ever resourceful mute Nick Andros, burned out rocker Larry Underwood, and the wicked Randall Flagg, also called The Walkin' Dude. It's an epic story to be sure, and depending on your tastes, it has yet to be adapted to its fullest potential. Having said that, I've got questions: just exactly how many movies are we talking about here? I can't see "The Stand" stretching for more than three, based on the story's length, content and meandering pace, which is much better suited for a two-parter. And how about casting? Are we looking at unknowns? Rising stars? Complete A-listers? Some combination? The biggest question of all: are Yates and Kloves right for the material? There's no question that they pulled off some serious moviemaking wizardry with the "Potter" franchise, so when it comes to adapting difficult material, they've proved their weight and then some. But "The Stand" is a very different beast from "Potter." Both tales have their moments of brutality, but King's story is hard-R stuff. I'll echo what Drew at HitFix wrote about the developing movie's rating: "'The Stand,' as originally written, was dark and powerful and disturbing, and if you're not going to go further than television has allowed in the past, there seems little reason to revisit the material." In other words, "The Stand" has to go for the R. Any other rating would feel cheap. Oh, and one last thing — and this is a bit of a [b]spoiler[/b] for another King yarn — but with WB snatching up "The Stand" and "Dark Tower" currently on the market, does this bring Roland Deschain one step closer to Warner's doorstep? Because if we can get the same guy playing Randall Flagg across the two franchises, that would be incredibly awesome.
