Oh, snap! Cap'n Amurrrika just got dissed!

The honest trailer for Captain America: The First Avenger is pretty hysterical, especially when it points out that Chris Evans' character is essentially really good at Ultimate Frisbee.

We hope you find this funny Chris, and don't try to Avenge this video!

So, come for the trailer calling pre-experiment Captain America a grown man's head CGI-ed onto a little boy's body, stay for when the trailer calls Captain America the 90-year-old virgin!

Ch-ch-check out the HIGHlarity that you will Marvel at…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Knew it!

We saw Minka Kelly and Chris Evans canoodling in front of our very own eyes at a performance of Into The Woods in Central Park last Saturday. Turns out they've been taking their love affair all over the Northeastern United States!

After hangin' in the Big Apple over the weekend, the lovebirds went to Boston where witnesses spotted them on a romantic lunch date at a restaurant called Max and Dylan’s. One source explained:

Captain America: The First Avenger…Coming Soon To Russia, South Korea, & the Ukraine!

Filed under: Film FlickersPolitikBusiness Blitz

captain america to change title in some countries

Looks like this will be a controversial move with hardcore Captain America fans, as well as Patriots everywhere.

The upcoming Marvel superhero movie Captain America: The First Avenger will have a much less patriotic title in South Korea, Russia, and the Ukraine.

In the countries we mentioned above, the title will be shortened to The First Avenger, which is a decision that was based on political factors "market research results."

Looks like the full title was cool with most countries, but Marvel, Paramount, and international distributors decided to make the change for the countries we listed.

Here's what the film's director Joe Johnston had to say about Captain America's international appeal:

“He wants to serve his country, but he’s not this sort of jingoistic American flag-waver. He’s just a good person. We make a point of that in the script: Don’t change who you are once you go from Steve Rogers to this super-soldier; you have to stay who you are inside, that’s really what’s important more than your strength and everything. It’ll be interesting and fun to put a different spin on the character and one that the fans are really going to appreciate … the idea that this is not about America so much as it is about the spirit of doing the right thing. It’s an international cast and an international story. It’s about what makes America great and what make the rest of the world great too.”

And here's what competitor/X-Men:First Class director Matthew Vaughn had to say about it:

“It’s going to be interesting to see how the movie does internationally with that character’s name. I think changing it is smart.”

We understand the reasoning for changing the title, but then again, he IS Captain America. They can shorten the title, but they can't very well change his name in the movie…unless they went more generic and called him Captain Planet.

We see no reason why that would be a problem.

Ha!

Do U think it's okay for them to change the title to appease certain countries? Or should it be the same everywhere?

Filed under: AnglophiliaFilm Flickers

After much speculation, it's been confirmed!

Captain America has his nemesis!

British actor Hugo Weaving will be taking the villainous role as The Red Skull in the film adaptation of Captain America: The First Avenger! Chris Evans and Hayley Atwell are so far the only other actors confirmed for the project, and Joe Johnston has taken the helm as director.

We think he's going to seriously bring it! He kicked ass in V For Vendetta and The Lord of the Rings!

Thoughts??
