Captain America: The First Avenger Synopsis


Born during the Great Depression, Steve Rogers grew up a frail youth in a poor family. Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe, Rogers was inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, he was rejected. Overhearing the boy's earnest plea, General Chester Phillips offered Rogers the opportunity to take part in a special experiment... Operation: Rebirth. After weeks of tests, Rogers was at last administered the Super-Solider Serum and bombarded by "vita-rays." Steve Rogers emerged from the treatment with a body as perfect as a body can be and still be human. Rogers was then put through an intensive physical and tactical training program. Three months later,he was given his first assignment as Captain America. Armed with his indestructible shield and battle savvy, Captain America has continued his war against evil both as a sentinel of liberty and as leader of the Avengers.

Comic book fans are already fully aware of how the origin story of Captain America ends, but for those not familiar with the character the ending of The First Avenger was quite fresh.

Weekend Box Office: First Avenger Takes First Place Weekend Box Office: First Avenger Takes First Place
Hero power topped Harry Potter this weekend. Captain America: The First Avenger made a solid debut at number with $65 million. While that's a respectable opening, it's nothing to get excited about. According to rankings it's only the 48th largest opening for a comic book adapted film. Harry Potter: The Deathly Hallows, Part 2 slipped a hefty 70% from its record breaking opening weekend (most movies drop 50% - 60%). That sort of rapid drop off is a common trend for Potter flicks, but no other entry in the franchise has ever come this far this fast.

9 Things You Need To Know About The Marvel Universe Before Seeing Captain America 9 Things You Need To Know About The Marvel Universe Before Seeing Captain America
In 2008, Marvel Studios embarked on an incredibly ambitious project. Starting with Iron Man, the company began releasing a series of superhero movies based on their own properties that would eventually be tied together in the team-up movie The Avengers in 2012. The drawback, however, is that not everyone in the world is as obsessed with the characters as their key fanbase and while the films do cater to a wide audience...

Exclusive Interview: Captain America's Sebastian Stan Exclusive Interview: Captain America's Sebastian Stan
When Captain America was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby in 1941, he was given a sidekick named Bucky Barnes. Much like Robin in the Batman comics, Bucky was a way for younger members of the comic-book reading audience (which is to say most of it) to see themselves in the storyline. This approach, however, would never fly in the 21st century, where fans have used their wallets to demand darker plots and characters instead of campy goofiness.

Captain America arrives next weekend and, in a summer that’s already seen Thor and X-Men: First Class, it’s my hope that this will end up as the best superhero movie of the year.

It ends with Cap in a pretty tight spot, stuck between four flamethrowers, but how much do you want to bet it turns out all right in the end. My favorite part of the clip might be the score, a kind of jaunty, slightly suspenseful accompaniment that seems to jive when the entire old school 40s feel of the movies
