CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER Video Roundup: 4 Movie Clips, 9 Minutes of Behind the Scenes Footage and a Featurette

     July 15, 2011


With director Joe Johnston’s Captain America: The First Avenger set to hit theaters next week, Paramount has released the EPK (electronic press kit) which includes 4 movie clips, a  Meet Captain America Featurette, and almost 9 minutes of behind the scenes footage from when they were making the movie (B-Roll).  If you’re trying to stay spoiler free, I’d advise you to avoid watching these videos.  But if you want to see as much footage as possible, hit the jump.  The behind the scenes footage is really cool.  Especially if you want to see what it was like on set.

Finally, while I can’t say much…I saw Captain America last night and loved it.  I’d be happy to go into more detail…and I will when the embargo lifts.  But for now, just know Marvel has another home-run on their hands and you should be very excited to see it next week.  Enjoy the clips.  Captain America stars Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Tommy Lee Jones, Hayley Atwell, Stanley Tucci, Natalie Dormer, Sebastian Stan and Dominic Cooper.

For more Captain America coverage, here’s 78 images from the movie.

Behind the Scenes Footage

Here’s the official synopsis:

Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige will produce CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER. Alan Fine, Stan Lee, David Maisel and Louis D’Esposito will executive produce. The film will be released in the US on July 22, 2011 and distributed by Paramount Pictures.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER will focus on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America.

Born during the Great Depression, Steve Rogers grew up a frail youth in a poor family. Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe, Rogers was inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, he was rejected. Overhearing the boy’s earnest plea, General Chester Phillips offered Rogers the opportunity to take part in a special experiment… Operation: Rebirth. After weeks of tests, Rogers was at last administered the Super-Solider Serum and bombarded by “vita-rays.” Steve Rogers emerged from the treatment with a body as perfect as a body can be and still be human. Rogers was then put through an intensive physical and tactical training program. Three months later, he was given his first assignment as Captain America. Armed with his indestructible shield and battle savvy, Captain America has continued his war against evil both as a sentinel of liberty and as leader of the Avengers.

        I LOVED IT!! nah it sucked

    • Warcam

      GL fan, eh?

  • Wes

    This looks better than Thor and that’s saying a LOT!!!

  • Wes

    It looks more and more like this has all the makings of a comicbook movie classic.

  • CAP A

    Well, saw the 3D trailer for this last night. looks good in 3D (As did CONAN)

    I just wished i didn’t bother with Transformers3 last night. Awful, awful movie, with pretty FX. You would think someone in Hollywood would have learned that people HATED Jar Jar Binks, not for his looks, but by what spewed out of his mouth.

    So Michael Bay fills 3 films with Robo Jar Jars and gets away with it?? WTF?

    George, all is forgiven, at least you learned to get rid after the first prequel.

    • CAP A

      Oh, and for one last time, THIS is THE only Captain America trailer i needed to see for me to be completely 100% sold on it….

      I wish they would add this as an easter egg on the blu ray.

  • AndyC

    Good to hear that you liked it Steve… This is definitely the most anticipated movie this year for me!

  • Dan

    It is amazing that they managed to capture the patriotic zeal of the original material without making it…corny. A great action movie with far more character development than you expect from a superhero movie. Check my full review:
