The Cure, Beach House Play Primavera Sound Fest

The Cure, Beach House and The xx are amongst the acts who played at this year's Primavera Sound festival, with the bash taking place at Barcelona's Parc Del Forum from May 30 – June 3.
The line-up has been blighted by a string of cancellations, including headlier Bjork who pulled out in early May due to an inflamed vocal chord, and no-shows from The Melvins, Sleep and EL-P. But there was little sign of disappointment amongst punters, however, with huge crowds flocking to sets from the likes of Justice, Spiritualized and the reformed Afghan Wigs.
On Friday (June 1), The Cure played a three hour, 36-song set that drew from their extensive back catalogue, including the live debut of their 1982 song "Just One Kiss."Robert Smith and co also played three encores that included performances of "Lovecats," "Close To Me" and "Boys Don' t Cry."
On June 2, meanwhile, Wild Beasts made reference to the Jubilee celebrations currently taking place in the UK, with singer Hayden Thorpe declaring himself to be pleased to be away from "the posh old lady everyone's making a big fuss about." Their set drew heavily on material from their last album, "Smother," with the group later taking to Twitter to declare the festival "more or less the best time we've ever had onstage… utterly unhinged and insane." Beach House also played on the same day, showcasing material from their new LP "Bloom," which was released last month.
Earlier in the week, The xx took to the Mini Stage on the Thursday (May 31) to play a celebratory set which included tracks from both their debut album and forthcoming new LP "Coexist," which is set for release in September. With the material taking on a dancier feel, Oliver Sim paid tribute to Primavera, announcing the band's 2010 performance was their favourite festival experience of all time.
Elsewhere, The Weeknd, aka leftfield R&B singer Abel Tesfaye, made his European debut on the Pitchfork stage (June 2), and The Men (June 1) and Iceage (May 31) debuted sets of new material.
The festival concluded with off-site shows from Richard Hawley, Milk Music and a closing party at Sala Apolo headlined by the Black Lips.


Ada Wong (Li Bing Bing, LEFT) and Alice (Milla Jovovich) walk down the NY Street in these new photos from Screen Gems’ action horror RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION.

The wildly successful film franchise adaptation that has grossed nearly $700 million worldwide to the popular video game series, Resident Evil, returns in its highly anticipated fifth installment, RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION, written and directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, in state-of-the art 3D.

The Umbrella Corporation’s deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead. The human race’s last and only hope, ALICE (Milla Jovovich), awakens in the heart of Umbrella’s most clandestine operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true. Aided by newfound allies and familiar friends, Alice must fight to survive long enough to escape a hostile world on the brink of oblivion. The countdown has begun.

The film stars Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez, Sienna Guillory, Kevin Durand, Shawn Roberts, Colin Salmon, Johann Urb, with Boris Kodjoe and Li Bing Bing. RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION will be in theaters September 14, 2012.
