Captain America: The Winter Soldier nimbly balances superhero banter, character development, political intrigue, conspiracy thriller and superheroic action set pieces with equal facility. It is, without doubt, Marvel’s most mature movie to date.

Marvel has released two new videos in support of Captain America: The Winter Soldier – a look behind the mythology of the film’s villain, and a quick look at the Black Widow in action. Skip the mythology featurette if you’re a fan of the Marvel Universe movies but haven’t read the comics – there’s a huge (and I am underselling this) spoiler revealed. The Widow clip is just good, clean violent fun. Check them out after the jump.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4th.
Yes, he wasn’t wearing a parachute! Check out an action-packed extended clip from Captain America: The Winter Soldier after the jump and be prepared for Black Widow: Matchmaker! (What? she’s multi-tasking!)
Captain America: The Winter Soldier premieres on April 4th.
Snowpiercer is first English-language film from Bong Joon-ho, the South Korean responsible for the exquisite monster flick, 2009’s The Host. Check out the creepy concept art above.
Chris Evans stars as the man who bucks the class system on a post-apocalypse train that carries the surviving humans in a world returned to the Ice Age. On that train, the poor live in the train’s tail while the rich live (in decadence, naturally) at the front. Snowpiercer’s cast also includes Tilda Swinton (who’s trying to stop Evans’ character), Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, John Hurt, Octavia Spencer and Ed Harris.
The international trailer follows the jump.
The Avengers is ridiculously entertaining. It’s pretty much a perfect summer movie.
The movie’s tone is perfect Marvel; the characters are completely true to their previous movies; the balance of wit, charm, intelligence, drama and poignancy is lovely, and both the tease for The Avengers 2 and the tag following the end credits are amazing. Even the 3D is effective – though it only really gets to shine in the last act.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: if Thor was Marvel’s Superman: The Movie, then Captain America: The First Avenger is its Raiders of the Lost Ark! And if the movie was splendid in 3D, it doesn’t lose much – if anything – in translation to 2D.
