New Captain America trailer released
|NEWS - MOVIE NEWS|
Summer marketing campaign heats up ...
The second official trailer for the upcoming Captain America film was released today, and does it look fantastic! Captain America has been, so far, unplagued by the commentary on CGI and effects that plagued Green Lantern prior to its release. Because it looks amazing. Chris Evans' transformation from teeny dweeb to hefty hero is revisited in detail, with some compelling glimpses of Tommy Lee Jones and of course, Hugo Weaving, baddest bad guy ever.
In a recent interview with MTV, Captain America himself addressed the shield question - why does the shield look different in different posters, and areas of the film? "They have a bunch of different shields ... some of them are really heavy, legit shields that look fantastic on film. Some are kind of a bit rubbery when you're doing dangerous stuff and you don't want to get hit in the face by it. Each one has a different weight to it. It's always strange, but it's always great trying it on."
Producer Kevin Feige gave some hints about the movie as well, when they opened up the set to select press. "95% of this movie takes place in the past. The bookends are in the modern day. The very first scene of the film is the discovery in the arctic. If you know anything about Cap, you might know what that discovery is." They went on to describe the origin story, which they say is classic, direct from the comics. It's interesting, too, that they've imbued the film with a 40's retro-feel, while making futuristic equipment, heroes, villains, and weapons. "We're not making The Thin Red Line or Band of Brothers ... what we can do that those films can't is peel back the layers, and suggest that there’s a secret history, with secret good guys, and secret bad guys, that you never knew about."
Disappointing critic and fan reaction to the most recent superhero offering, Green Lantern, notwithstanding, excitement rides high for the upcoming Captain America: The First Avenger. See for yourself why - check out the trailer below!
