Captain America: The First Avenger gets another new trailer

Marvel’s latest superhero movie Captain America: The First Avenger is out next month, and they’ve just released a brand new trailer to remind us all about it.

Unveiling a slew of new footage, this new look at the movie delves further into the sequence of events that leads to weedy Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) becoming the shield-flinging hero.

The emphasis here is firmly on two things: character and explosions. There are beats for everybody, including Stanley Tucci, Hayley Atwell and Tommy Lee Jones.

The only person we don’t see much of is Hugo Weaving’s villainous Red Skull, who is still being kept mostly under wraps.

Marvel is playing a clever game with this trailer – whetting the appetite with some great looking stuff, while only hinting at things like Red Skull to keep audiences wanting more.

Frankly, it’s working. The only niggles are an odd rocky soundtrack and a silly-looking mid-swing kiss between Evans and Atwell that recalls Star Wars .

Check out the new trailer below…

Captain America: The First Avenger opens 29 July 2011.
