First things first. The trailer:
Go light a candle, use the scented ones for special occasions. Prepare for the biggest geekgasm of the year so far!
It was good right? If that doesn’t get you amped up for The Winter Soldier then you officially don’t have a pulse!
It’s a nice style for a comic book movie trailer. Lately we’ve seen these weird 5 minute previews of films where they take you through the whole plot, and this is kind of a different version of that. It gives you a continuous couple of minutes from the start of the film, just a little something to whet your appetite and then blasts you into some intense 2-3 second clips like a standard trailer.
I’m not sure I’m really a fan of seeing a whole 2 minutes of the film. Once I’ve seen the final product I’ll make a decision at that point as to whether it affects my enjoyment – but it definitely got me excited for the film, so from a marketing perspective it certainly does what it’s supposed to.
Deadgeek is still refusing to watch any comic book trailers but I know he is going to go nuts for this film.
Expect a review towards the end of the month for our thoughts.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is released March 28th in the UK.
The most recent TV spot for Captain America: The Winter Soldier has literally given away at least part of the plot of the film.
“Fury’s last words were not to trust anyone.”
Don’t take my word for it, check out the TV Spot on Marvel’s YouTube channel for yourself:
So Fury potentially dies or is, at the very least, taken out of the action somehow. I wouldn’t get too work up about this though, Fury is one of those characters that is notorious for appearing to die but actually doesn’t. I’m sure he has a few LMD’s knocking around in the movie universe as well as 616.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is released on 28th March in the UK.
I’m very much on the fence with this whole “We’ll remake all the classic 80’s films because we can’t come up with anything original and we know people will pay to see this because they loved the original and we just want to make money” thing. I get it, and I’m one of the suckers that pay to see this stuff. But I also see the other side of the veil that says “leave this stuff alone and put money into trying new ideas”. There are a lot of arguments for and against this kind of thing. So in this particular instance I try to remain neutral and take them as they come.
Maybe it’s just me but this is ridiculously… AWESOME! I love it, it’s so simple yet it says so much.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the third film in the MCUs Phase 2 and stars Chris Evans as Cap/Steve Rogers, Sebastian Stan as James “Bucky” Barnes/Winter Soldier and the usual MCU suspects Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson.
Set for release in 2014, this will follow this years excellent Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World which will be out later in 2013 and will be followed by Guardians of the Galaxy amd The Avengers 2. We cant wait!
