Captain America: The Winter Soldier Screening Weeks Earlier In Selected Cities
Hey, do you wanna see Captain America: The Winter Soldier? Yeah, you probably do, even if you werenít too hot on that first film. What about seeing it early, as early as weeks before the general public? Sounds cool, right? Marvel hears you, dude. And Marvelís gonna give you all the early Cap you can handle.
A contest was set up to get early screenings of Captain America: The Winter Soldier in certain cities, and the winners were Austin, Chicago, Kansas City, Los Angeles, New York City, Orlando, Philadelphia, Raleigh, San Diego and Washington D.C. Good for you, major media markets and Raleigh, you get your Cap-sized sequel on March 20th. Tickets will be available on the 14th, so make sure to keep your browsers open a week from Friday and refresh until your fingers fall off if you want to see one of your favorite Marvel heroes in action.
Following the events of The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier finds the star-spangled hero as a stranger in a strange land, trying to make sense of the world as a member of SHIELD. Contemporary associates like the Black Widow, Sam Wilson, Nick Fury and Brock Rumlow keep him abreast of the current world climate, but SHIELD head Alexander Pierce seems to have other plans for the organization. Meanwhile, a series of terrorist attacks are traced back to masked Russian operative the Winter Soldier, leading Captain America to go rogue to unlock a dark secret from his past.
On March 20th, lucky fans will get to see the new film in 3D, one that apparently sets the stage for next yearís Avengers: Age Of Ultron in a big way. Surely spoilers will leak, but thereís no way to combat the rush of fans eager for new information. Cap-mania has come a long way since the early days of the character onscreen: anyone who scoured video stores in the early nineties remembers Albert Pyunís Captain America, a film that featured the hero with prosthetic ears coming out of his costume and a rubbery shield that didnít threaten anyone. Oh, how far the hero has come.
