Two new clips from ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’

Captain America: The First Avenger

Captain America: The First Avenger is only a week away from hitting Australian cinemas, and Paramount have been kind enough to send over two brand-new clips from the film and the final Australia one-sheet poster.

In the first of these, we witness the birth of the Cap, or as the title of the clip suggests, his rebirth as a “taller” and stronger version of Steve Rogers. Immediately following this is a clip showing Captain America in action, with the simply titled “Shield Fight”. It shows off the fighting sequences in the film, and some of the impressive special effects we can expect. Our buzz hasn’t waned at all, what about yours?

Captain America: The First Avenger will focus on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America.  As Captain America, Rogers joins forces with Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) to wage war on the evil HYDRA organization, led by the villainous Red Skull (Hugo Weaving).
