Marvel is keeping us on our toes with a surprise announcement of the upcoming “Fantastic Four” reboot. The cast, notably younger and fresher than the previous versions, includes actors that many fans didn’t expect. But until the film premieres in 2015, we’ll be busy at Bonnaroo, whose just-announced lineup blends classic and contemporary seamlessly. And there’s a Katy Perry video to attend to today.
’Fantastic Four’ Reboot Cast Revealed
The rumors can be quelled: Marvel Studios has finally announced the leads in the upcoming “Fantastic Four” remake. Miles Teller will play Mr. Fantastic, Michael B. Jordan will heat up as the Human Torch, Kate Mara will turn into the Invisible Woman while Jamie Bell will become The Thing. We can’t wait to see the fresh young cast rock the classic characters. “Fantastic Four” opens June 19, 2015.
Kanye, Frank Ocean, Jack White Headline Bonnaroo 2014
A solid mix of classic rock stars and current idols round out this year’s Bonnaroo lineup. Elton John and Vampire Weekend, Lionel Richie and Skrillex, The Flaming Lips and Wiz Khalifa to name a few. West will return to the Tennessee music fest for the first time after his battle with organizers over his incredibly delayed (and, because of that, booed) performance on the farm in 2008. A name noticeably absent? OutKast, who is headlining 40 music festivals this year.
Katy Perry Will Premiere ’Dark Horse’ Video Today
The Queen of Memphis, Egypt, will premiere her Cleopatra-inspired video for “Dark Horse” on Thursday (February 20). The teaser promises colorful costumes, flashy grills and some serious sex appeal. How similar will it be to her pharaoh-ised BRIT Awards performance last night? We can’t wait to see.
Beyoncé, Bruno & Katy Perry Perform At 2014 BRITs
A poetic first performance of “XO,” a rock ’n roll version of “Treasure” and an Egyptian-inspired “Dark Horse” were the highlights of England’s answer to the Grammys. One Direction took home British Video of the Year for “Best Song Ever,” despite Harry Styles almost not making it to the stage in time to accept because he was “having a wee.”
