  1. Young Money diva Nicki Minaj is having a great 2011. Already a part of two successful tours, a hot-selling Pink Friday album and scores of fans the world over, the Queens native and former acting student has turned her sights onto Hollywood. Last week, entertainment magazine Variety reported via their website that the rapper would be joining the cast of Ice Age: Continental Shift – the fourth film in the long-running animated franchise. MTV News spoke with Minaj while backstage in New Jersey during a stop on the Femme Fatale tour featuring headlining pop star Britney Spears. “I don't know how much I can talk about that, but I came about that when my agency sent me out on an audition for some people who wanted to hear me," shared Minaj. "They knew I liked animation, they knew I liked to do voices, and so they said they were doing that so I thought, 'This is amazing.' Even more amazing for Nicki Minaj is that she was initially denied the original role she read for but was called in by the film’s producers to read for another part written specifically for the star to which Nicki said she was “so excited” over the opportunity. A few Nicki Minaj fans on Twitter have chimed in about her upcoming role with most speculating over which of the rapper’s many voices she would employ for the role. “Will @NICKIMINAJ be using her British accent in the new movie "Ice Age 4"?” tweeted fan @DaNYCGossipGirl. Exited fan @_AllSheWrote added, “Everyone is going to go see #IceAge4 bc Nicki Minaj voice was casted as one of the roles.. I will be there : ]” – echoing a growing sentiment amongst Minaj fans. Some users were not as enthused, however. “Nicki Minaj has a horrible talking voice imo. And I can't believe she is already in a freaaking movie,” said an annoyed @Cheers2Rih. Ice Age: Continental Shift is slated for a July 2012 release, right at the height of the blockbuster days of summer. Are you excited for Nicki Minaj and her new cartoon role?

Lionsgate announced the release date for the second installment in the [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/422817/moviemain.jhtml"]"Hunger Games"[/url] film series Monday (August 8), following [url="http://hollywoodcrush.mtv.com/2011/08/08/new-hunger-games-stills/"]two new stills[/url] from the first flick hitting the Web. "The Hunger Games" is still in production and is slated for a March 23, 2012, release. "Catching Fire" is the only movie slotted for the prime 2013 Thanksgiving weekend spot. No word yet on whether "Catching Fire" will maintain Gary Ross as director or whether it will follow "The Twilight Saga" and "Harry Potter" trend of getting new directors for its [url="http://hollywoodcrush.mtv.com/2011/06/01/hunger-games-four-movies/"]four installments[/url]. But, considering "The Hunger Games" is close to wrapping, the timing of the announcement leads us to assume that Lionsgate is attempting to maintain some continuity from the first movie to the second. The new photos from "The Hunger Games" show that the cast is well into filming. The first still shows off Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in the middle of the titular Hunger Games. It is a familiar image from the previously released photos, but the "X-Men: First Class" star looks ready for battle with her quiver full of arrows. If you look close enough, you can even see her mockingjay pin peeking out on her jacket.

  11. Anytime the entertainment news cycle shifts to focus on new information released about highly-anticipated movie sequels and threequels, (i.e. the [url="http://splashpage.mtv.com/2011/08/05/dark-knight-rises-catwoman/"]buzzworthy new photos[/url] from "[url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/454627/moviemain.jhtml"]The Dark Knight Rises[/url]"), it gets us thinking about all the other exciting upcoming second, third or fourth chapters of film franchises. [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2011/08/09/avatar-sequel/"][img]http://mtv.mtvnimages.com/uri/mgid:uma:video:mtv.com:679786?height=288&width=512[/img][/url] Take [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/9282/personmain.jhtml"]James Cameron[/url]'s second and third [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/tag/avatar"]"Avatar,"[/url] films for example. When are they going to start production already? I tried to find out from lovely leading lady [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/242567/personmain.jhtml"]Zoe Saldana[/url] at the Teen Choice Awards yesterday. Specifically, I asked her if she's heard anything from Cameron yet. "No. I heard that we might go next year so I'm really psyched," Saldana revealed about a potential 2012 start. "I'm keeping my bags packed," she admitted. "I would do anything for that man and for that project, so I'm waiting." Us too. What we know about the next two "Avatar" films is not much. Cameron has said he plans to shoot the films back-to-back and that he is writing two stand-alone scripts for each film, which are tentatively titled "Avatar 2" and "Avatar 3." "I’m writing two scripts, not one, which will complete a [three]-film story arc – not really a trilogy, but just an overall character arc so I’m pretty excited about that," he told [url="http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2011/06/21/james-cameron-to-generate-hundreds-jobs-by-filming-avatar-sequels-domestically/"]Fox News[/url] in June. We also know a decent portion of the film's action will take place underwater, which, last time we checked, was proving to be quite the challenge for Cameron and his motion-capture experts. "'Avatar' does have some underwater stuff, but it will mostly involve characters that are the Na'vi and the Avatars," Cameron [url="%20http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2011/02/04/james-cameron-avatar-sanctum/#more-52898"]told MTV News earlier this year[/url]. "So we have to figure out how to do performance capture underwater, which has never been done. That's a whole other problem." [i]What would you like to see in the "Avatar" sequels?

  13. By D.L. Chandler Although Kanye West’s production imprint looms large on the Watch The Throne LP, he isn’t the only big name to grace the production credits. “Gotta Have It” is a track produced by The Neptunes and their signature sound is just the platter Jay and Kanye need for their back and forth verses where the stars talk up their riches with braggadocious flair. The short track is peppered with somber piano stabs and a cleverly placed James Brown sample which lasts throughout, giving the song a full feel even with is brief length. The crisp drums and eerie vocal samples help enhance the Kid Cudi-assisted track. Yesterday the track began to trend worldwide on Twitter, continuing the current theme of the day on the social networking site. Fans have debated, discussed and flat-out argued the merits of the tracks on Watch The Throne all day long. Odd Future production team and group Jet Age Of Tomorrow tweeted from their @TheSuper3 account, “"gotta have it" is the so great. pharrell killed it..” while user @FlyGuyTray said the song, “might be my fave thus far.” The track is a surprising favorite amongst Twitter users, considering the pace of the song isn’t notably upbeat. Although the song doesn’t lack energy as a result of its lowered tempo, it definitely stood out amongst fans – especially those familiar with the Neptunes sound. “The Neptunes are my ni**as!!! What they came up wit for "Gotta Have It" on #WTT reminded me why they are still among my favorite producers!” tweeted a hyped @TyDruma. What did you think of “Gotta Have It?” Did The Neptunes do their thing on this one? Tweet to us at @MTVRapFix or leave us a comment below.
