Captain America: The Winter Soldier

In July of 2013, I took a short trip to Marvel Studios in Manhattan Beach to visit the set of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. While I’m not allowed to write about what I learned and saw on the sound stages, Disney has given me the go-ahead to share a transcript of our on-set interview with Captain America himself Chris Evans. Note, as with a majority of the set visit interviews we participate in, this chat was conducted in a roundtable setting with our colleagues at other film outlets. Read the full interview right now after the jump, along with some new production photos.

‘Snowpiercer’ International Trailer: “Is It Time?”

Snowpiercer

After several months, the battle between Bong Joon-ho and The Weinstein Company over the U.S. release of Snowpiercer remains unresolved. At this point, it’s anyone’s guess when Stateside audiences will finally get to see the film, or what shape it’ll be in when it gets there. But folks in other countries have been luckier, and today we have a new trailer from Japan that shows a bit of new footage. Check it out after the jump.

Here’s the first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, in which Captain America really starts to come to grips with the messy politics of the modern world. (And also with relations with Black Widow, as a little opening banter shows.)

The warrior started to get a taste of things in The Avengers, but here he really comes up against the shadowy goals and motivations of the agency and government he works for. It’s not going to be the easiest learning experience for the guy, especially when he has to face a cybernetically enhanced killer, who works for the other side and has more than a tenuous connection to Cap’s past.

This trailer doesn’t mess around. You’ll see Cap in action; conversations with Robert Redford; Falcon flying, and the Winter Soldier doing his level best to take our hero out.

Poster for Snowpiercer

When it was first reported that The Weinstein Company planned to cut roughtly 20 minutes out of Bong Joon-ho‘s South Korean blockbuster Snowpiercer, the director seemed pretty sanguine about the whole affair. He was said to be working with Harvey Scissorhands to get the edits done, even though he point of the cuts was reportedly to trim character moments and turn the movie into more of a straight-ahead action movie, not unlike the changes that were made to Wong Kar-wai’s The Grandmaster for it’s own US debut.

Turns out that the director might not be so happy with the idea of the edits. After a recent screening of the film at the Busan Film Festival, Bong said there wouldn’t be another chance for American, British, and Australian viewers to see the director’s cut. Publicly, he’s been relatively supportive, but privately he’s said to be “furious” with the changes.  Read More »

South Korean director Bong Joon-ho has, by many accounts, created a heck of a film in Snowpiercer, which tells the story of class warfare and revolution on a train that speeds the last remnants of humanity through a snowy post-apocalyptic landscape. Chris Evans leads a cast that also features  John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, Ed Harris, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song and Ko Asung. The film broke box-office records in South Korea when released earlier this year, and is now rolling out to other countries.

So when will we see Snowpiercer in the US? Good question. The Weinstein Company owns distribution rights, and has yet to set a date. Another question might be when we’ll see the original international cut, which has been shortened for the US release — that one really remains up in the air.

For the time being we’ll have to be content with trailers from around the world. The latest comes from France, and it’s a terrific look at the film. Check it out below. Read More »

Hiddleston Hopkins D23

The D23 Expo has come and gone but the content just keeps on flowing. Marvel has posted videos of their presentations from the Live Action event, featuring cast members from Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as well as some discussion of Guardians of the Galaxy.

Unfortunately for people who weren’t in the room, the actual footage from the movies isn’t included. But you can get a good sense of how Marvel is selling their upcoming films to the Disney audience, and see stars like Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie along the way.
