"Coldplay" rocked the UCLA campus in Los Angeles on Wednesday night (August 03) to an intimate crowd of several hundred. The group was headlining the Samsung AT&T Summer Krush concert series with the proceeds of the event going to benefit the GRAMMY Foundation. Marvel Comics has unveiled a new Spider-Man for the Obama-age -- a half-black, half-Latino nerd named Miles Morales. The new Spidey, who lives in Brooklyn, was revealed in Marvel Comics' Ultimate Fallout Issue 4. He replaces longtime comic-book favorite Peter Parker, who was white, hailed from Queens and was killed in Ultimate Spider-Man Issue in June. Marvel said that it wanted to make a statement about the 21st century. Here's a much-anticipated first look at the new "Man of Steel," unveiling actor Henry Cavill as Superman. The film also stars three-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams ("The Fighter") as journalist Lois Lane, and Oscar nominee Laurence Fishburne as her editor-in-chief, Perry White. "Man of Steel" is slated to take flight on the silver screen in June of 2013. Thirteen items belonging to the late kung fu legend Bruce Lee, including a 1966 letter he wrote from Hollywood and a fur-lined costume coat will be sold at auction in Hong Kong on Saturday (August 04). The star of martial arts classics such as "Fists of Fury" and "Enter the Dragon", was raised in Hong Kong before moving to the United States in 1959 to teach kung fu. John Russell, Reuters.
