Behind the Shield: The surreal making of 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' -- EXCLUSIVE

They say to keep your friends close and your enemies closer. But in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it’s getting harder for the superhero to tell the difference. In the latest installment from Marvel Studios’ interlocked franchise, Chris Evans’ unfrozen genetically-enhanced warrior from the Greatest Generation is still unsure of his place in the world after helping to save it twice: once from the forces of Red Skull in 2011’s original Captain America, and again from an alien invasion in 2012’s The Avengers.

The Winter Soldier features an eponymous new villain — a bioengineered assassin with a mechanical arm—who is targeting the leadership of the global protection force S.H.I.E.L.D. The film, directed by brothers Anthony and Joe Russo (already being courted by Marvel for more), reteams Evans with Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow and Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury as top operatives for the group. But Cap (alias Steve Rogers) is beginning to question whether he and S.H.I.E.L.D. are on the same side. Sebastian Stan plays the Winter Soldier, and anyone who saw the first film knows his character’s history with Rogers runs deep. If there’s an overall theme in the movie, it’s this: Old friends make the worst enemies.

EW visited the set of The Winter Soldier last July. It’s the day after Comic-Con ended. Footage screened for fans at the annual convention had lathered the geeky faithful into a frenzy, but no one is celebrating on set. Instead of passing around high fives, the cast members are punching each other in the face. READ FULL STORY

Critical Mass: Is 'Captain America' the hero we deserve?

Summer doesn’t begin until June 21, but blockbuster season begins today with the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. This time around, Chris Evans’ 1940s super-soldier finds himself in a 1970s paranoid political thriller set in post-9/11 Washington, D.C. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the first superhero film since the terrorist-inflected The Dark Knight that plugs you right into what’s happening now,” writes EW’s Owen Gleiberman.

'Winter Soldier' TV teaser: Is this the first superhero-action-romance? -- VIDEO

captain-america-05.jpg

The newest TV teaser for Captain America: The Winter Soldier has a pounding score that evokes the proper amount of action and danger for an Avengers film. But a different version might be just as suited to a romantic ballad, judging by the way the clip underlines the increasingly warm and fuzzy relationship between Cap (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). Plenty of heartfelt gazes. Plenty of teamwork building. Plenty of courageous tit-for-tat heroics.

The Winter Soldier unofficially kicks off the summer blockbuster season next week, opening in the U.S. on April 4. It’s already off to a rousing start abroad, bringing in $75.2 million during its opening weekend in 32 foreign territories.

'Captain America: The Winter Soldier': See the first official poster

After awakening from a nearly 70-year nap and helping to save the world from a plague of alien baddies, humble supersoldier Steve Rogers — a.k.a. Captain America — thinks he might finally get a chance to adjust to modern life in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Unfortunately, the world has other plans.

Today, Marvel unleashed the first moody poster for the Captain’s second solo cinematic spotlight. Though the rest of the film’s cast — including Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes, Anthony Mackie as Falcon, and Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow — isn’t pictured, fans of Chris Evans’s silhouette, lens flares, and bird’s-eye views of our nation’s capital should be pleased. (Wait — is Captain America the one who really ended the government shutdown?) Check it out below:

Casting Net: Chris Evans takes the reins on a new project; Plus, Jack Black leads a porn company, more

• Chris Evans may be best known for playing the straitlaced Captain America, but that doesn’t mean he’s content to just rest on his superhero laurels. The Avengers star will make his feature directorial debut with the romance 1:30 Train, which he’ll also star in and produce alongside McG. The story, penned by Ronald Bass (Stepmom), is disarmingly similar to the idea behind Before Sunrise, and follows two strangers who meet in New York and spend the night together. Evans plans to shoot the movie before he begins work on The Avengers: Age of Ultron. [Deadline]

'Snowpiercer' international trailer: A bunch of dirty rebels fight Tilda Swinton and tyranny -- VIDEO

In Snowpiercer, in the future, the Earth will freeze over and everyone — from the filthiest to the fanciest — will live on a very large train that never stops moving. It completes its trip around the planet once each year, like the sun. And like the sun, it keeps its inhabitants alive. Not all of this is obvious in the first international trailer for the film, which is based on a French graphic novel and written/directed by Bong Joon-ho, the South Korean filmmaker behind The Host and Mother.

What is obvious: the healthy smearing of grime across each face in the large cast (Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, and so many more). But not Tilda Swinton, who plays a shout-y classist. In the two minutes of footage, she’s the strangest sight of all.

Watch the Snowpiercer trailer below:

'Snowpiercer' gets grimy with new images, character posters

Snowpiercer-evans.jpg

We have some of our first images of Snowpiercer, and humanity is looking rough.

The film, adapted from a French graphic novel, is South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho’s English-language feature debut. It takes place at the near-end of humanity, in 2031, when an Ice Age has virtually frozen us off the planet and survivors are kept alive aboard an endless train ride. In the new character posters and stills, we see the film’s sprawling cast — which includes Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ed Harris, Kang-ho Song, and a desaturated and bespectacled Tilda Swinton — as well as a few glimpses of the world they live in, which features a lot of grime and frowns.
