Chris Evans goes from super skinny to super soldier in new Captain America trailer

06.23.2011

USA! USA! This new trailer for CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER might get your blood pumping like you have super serum flowing through your veins.

Before it even gets around to presenting Marvel's stars-and-stripes superhero, this looks like a pretty damn cool war movie. And those scrawny Evans FX are still mind-boggling.

Seems like director Joe Johnston's ROCKETEER sensibilities (with more than a dash of RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK) are on full display -- seriously, this promises to be a total straight-up action-packed blast of adventure. (Shame we couldn't have it on July 4th weekend, damn giant robots.)

Enough chatter! Check out the spectacular new trailer below or in HD at Yahoo!

Extra Tidbit: Speaking of THE ROCKETEER, the movie had a 20th anniversary event in Hollywood this week and actor Thomas Jane apparently attended in a full Rocketeer costume!

Love that they used Tool's 'Forty-six and Two' song for the trailer.

Nice!

That grenade scene = that's Cap's escense; heroic, someone everybody can look up to... hope there's more of that in the film and not only (bad-ass) action scenes

Trailer rocks but...

Knowing that they are dropping "Captain America" from the title overseas, I'm still curious as to whether he'll be called "Captain America" in the film. He's never referred to as Captain America in any of the clips and in this trailer he's just called Captain. I love the character though and will support the film.

Thats the best trailer I've seen all year. An extra bit of characterization, an idea of how the story would be told, and a heaping pile of action that didn't give too much away. That it was all set to Tool's 'Forty Six & 2' (a song about tranformation & evolution) was icing on the cake.

This might now be a midnight movie for me.

... Cap say that line from Ultimates "You think A on my forehead stands for Europe?" Kudos to Evans for getting in the shape, looking forward to this.

I'm Psyched

From what I have seen of this movie so far I haven't been let down, Acting looks great so far, the special effects seem on point. The director Joe Johnston has had his hits and misses, but I with the films he directed that Iíve seen I never came away disappointed (I haven't seen The Wolfman so I can't comment on that) Even JP3 was a solid movie nowhere near as good as JP1 but in my personal opinion way better then JP2.But only time will tell if the movie can do the Cap some justice, I just

showing too many explosions and not enough fight sequences which worries me in believing it will have mediocre action such as Thor and poor american choreography as usually seen when no Asians are attached to the fight choreography...smh. I hope this isnt another romantic comedy like Thor and Ironman 2

Asian fight choreography? Are you serious? Because that would make so much sense in WWII Europe, wouldn't it?

Maybe in Captain America 2 they will have a scene set in Japan in WWII as a flashback where Cap fights ninjas, just for you because you are so special.

Thanks Bowmangt for having my back on that one. Yeah they fucked up somewhere and I couldnt post anywhere but here on this article. It took me to some crappy mobile version and i couldn't see anyone's posts and couldn't get into help page etc. But it's fixed now. As for The Fire Duece..... What more can I say other than you're the Tard for not reading my original post correctly.... But it's all good ya gotta expect that from Tards. :-)

My Cap enthusiasm had been waning with most of the sub-par promotional stuff we'd seen 'til this point (that exclusive, vintage-style poster aside) but this trailer and its Tool have got me pumped again. Scrawny Evans still weirds me out, though... maybe I'll get used to it when I'm actually watching it act in full scenes rather than in short bursts.

Nothing I have seen so far has made me want to see this movie immediately. But I do think that its awesome that they used a TOOL song in the trailer.

While I've been skeptical of the film, the trailer makes it seem like a lot of fun. And with the other Marvel properties doing so well this summer, I am more inclined to believe this will actually be a good movie. Though, I am still not quite counting on Chris Evans to deliver on the really serious elements, I think this will prove him to be quite the leading action hero.

I agree with you, not just because I am not a Tool fan, but that song doesn't work with a trailer for a Captain America movie set in WWII.

Awesome

Looks like ten gallons of win.
Interesting that we haven't seen much of Hugo Weaving in the trailers, nor heard his German accent. Looking forward to seeing him in action, though... I'm sure he'll nail it!

that trailer kicked serious ass, and yes - having Tool on the soundtrack was the icing on the cake! Just curious: I wonder if they'll have a Wolverine cameo like they did in Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes? Would be a lot of fun.

!!OMUTHERFUCKINHELLYESSSSSSSS!!!

Is all I can say after seeing this trailer! I'm a huge Cap fan, wrote a script of it myself, and I was worried they were going to phuck it up, but man, it looks badass. Cap looks badass, his suit looks amazing and I really do get a "Indy" vibe from it - like the Red Skull and Cap are racing to find the cosmic cube. This is by far my most anticipated movie of... ever.

story wise...when cap wakes up in contemporary times and everyone he knows is dead or really old...i wonder how they are gonna tackle that sadness he'd feel? how that will affect his avengers team performance?

Everyone on the roster that we have seen sorta has "someone" whether or not they appear in the avengers film...

stark has potts

thor has foster

banner has ross

fury has coulson

coulson has hawkeye

black widow has fury and stark to a degree...

This film looks like a winner to me. As a Cap fan I am very happy with the characters portrayal and as a movie fan I have to say this looks very exciting. I also love The Rocketeer and a few other of Johnston's pictures. I cant wait for this!

See Ryan Reynolds, what Chris Evans is doing is called acting. You know, pretending to be someone other than himself for the sake of the character.

This looks like the best comic book film of the year. Even in Johnson's worst movies you could tell he had a great eye for visuals. I really think this could be his best film in years. Also, that tidbit is awesome and so his Jane. It's a crime studios don't recognize his potential. And I hope Rocketeer gets a blu-ray release soon.
