All too often Hollywood disappoints me. Whether it be who they choose to direct a project, or the way they decide to tell a story, I leave the theater wondering how a sure fire hit ended up such a disaster. But every once in awhile they get it right. Like they reached into my imagination and pulled out exactly what I was thinking. Which brings me to director Joe Johnston’s Captain America: The First Avenger.
Even though every image I’d seen before today looked great, you never know about a movie until you see some footage. Thankfully, the Super Bowl ad Paramount aired was just incredible and I’m completely sold on Chris Evans as Captain America. While most of you might have already watched the ad, I decided to screengrab my favorite 17 images from the brief 30 second clip as the footage showed off so many cool things. So after the jump you can get great looks at Hugo Weaving as the Red Skull, Stanley Tucci as Abraham Erskine, Tommy Lee Jones as Col. Chester Phillips, Evans before and after getting the serum, and you can even see Captain America leading the Howling Commandos!
Here’s the one liner:
After being deemed unfit for military service, Steve Rogers volunteers for a top secret research project that turns him into Captain America, a superhero dedicated to defending America’s ideals.
