The newest trailer for the Captain America: The First Avenger film, complete with a lot more dialogue than previous trailers.


Legality:



The trailer. Thoughts:

- Increasingly, I'm thinking this might be the best superhero film of the summer (and I liked Thor and X-Men: First Class quite a lot).

- There's a lot more character stuff than previous trailers; in particular, Peggy gets a lot of dialogue, and I think she's shaping up very nicely. Hayley Atwell I already knew was a good fit for this period in history (Brideshead Revisited), and unlike a lot of superhero love interests she's gorgeous while not looking or sounding like a bad fit for her supposed occupation (hello, scientist Jessica Alba).

- I also like what we see/hear of Erskine. Despite being such a pivotal figure in Steve's backstory, he's a pretty undefined figure in the comics. I assume Howard Stark is there to take over as Steve's Q after Erskine dies.

- The role of army colonel, whatever the era, fits Tommy Lee Jones like a glove.

I love how this is a human story, one of us getting the chance to do something truly exceptional not just because of the strength of his body, but his will and character.

Case in point: The grenade scene.

No offence to the other actors who I really do like the look of in this (and I'm likely to be loving this movie), but Tommy Lee Jones is awesome x 100. He's on my short list of my all time favs :)

It's a coup getting Tommy Lee Jones

This does look better and better. My only problems with the film are the casting for Cap and Bucky, but that's those particular actors.

I was toying with the idea of seeing Green Lantern until I read one one-line review.

Then everything else that I read echoed that review.

In contrast, I heard some mixed things about First Class and loved it to bits.

I do hope that there's an extended recruitment montage on the DVD.

Green Lantern - don't

I really didnt want to get my hopes up for this film, my fear has, and to a certain point, is still, that they were going to use the basis for Ultimate Cap... but the more i see of this film, the more i think and feel that they truly are doing to Real/Original Captain America. ANd this makes me happy. it truly looks epic. Not just as a comic book movie, but a REAL good movie period.

As played by Stanley Tucci? Come on, how could that NOT be awesome?

Definitely going to help flesh out the character for modern audiences, much like Shaun Toub did for Yinsen in Iron Man.

Was that Richard Armitage as Erskine's assassin? And Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark? Nice to see smaller-name British actors in cameos, although I'm having a little trouble picturing Cooper turning into John Slattery in 20+ years time...

Yeah, that's Richard Armitage

"Heroes are made in America".

Well, that line pretty much killed my enthusiasm for the movie, now I don't think I'll go see it.

Look, I know it's Captain America. I know it's supposed to be very patriotic.

But they could have very easily praised America without basically stating that all the other countries are useless. Why the put down? It was so unnecessary. The America Wins The War trope annoys the shit out of me.

I wonder what Germans think about all the stereotyping about nazis tbh (unavoidable in this case). Then again I found out when I took a film module at uni that often in American cinema it's always Brits playing evil characters in things like historical or high fantasy films. (But they're getting over that now).

As a historian it annoys me too.
