Are You Ready for Captain America 2?

The film is out next spring, and the first preview stills and trailer have just been dropped. Consider us excited.

The trailer sees Cap living in a world where the government is doing something dark and questionable. Huh.

He also appears to be a fully fledged SHIELD agent. The film takes a lot from the ‘Winter Soldier’ storyline in the comics, where Cap fights an unexpected enemy – an enemy he has met before he was frozen…

The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug Official Trailer

Hot on the heels of the first poster for the second part of Peter Jackon’s Hobbit trilogy comes the trailer for The Desolation of Smaug. This two minute trailer gives us all a first look at some important characters. We have Lee Pace as Thranduil, the father of Legolas and the Eleven King, doing something other than riding an elk. We have Evangeline Lily as Tauriel, a female elf who has been added into the film and has already been stirring up controversy, with fans fearing that she may be inserted purely to add in some romance. The trailer shows her firmly as a fighter but offers no clues on her actual character. And the trailer ends with a shot of the titular dragon himself, with Freeman’s Bilbo Baggins facing up to the terror that is Cumberbatch’s Smaug…

Well, I’m excited.

School Creates Its Own Hobbit Film

A school in London – Tower House School – have decided that waiting for The Hobbit film has gone on long enough, so they’ve made their own.

The full-length (yes, it runs a full 90 minutes…) is only for pupils and parents at the moment, but the trailer is available online.

The children managed to get the film mentioned in the London Evening Standard and the Telegraph, so fair play to them.  Apparently, the full version has a CGI dragon…
