CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER Cast And Crew Poster At Hero Complex!

Published at: June 11, 2011, 7:25 p.m. CST

Nordling here.

I really want one of these bad boys.  The Hero Complex Film Festival ends tomorrow, but if you're one of the lucky attendees, you may end up getting one of these cast and crew posters from CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER.  They're giving away five of them at the festival, according to Hero Complex.  I love it.  It's beautiful, retro, and this would be great to see hanging in theaters:

How awesome is that?  Cap is punching Hitler!  This sucker's going on my wallpaper for sure.  CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER is opening July 22, and that day can't come fast enough for me.

Nordling, out.

    Goldentribe: How are the faces way off? I think Evans, Atwell and Jones are spot on

    by MARCEL_THE_NEGRO_PROJECTIONIST

    don't see what you're complaining about. Besides, back when Struzan used to do just about every big movie poster, he always stylized the faces as opposed to being photo realistic about them. He caught their essence. Which I think this poster does. Especially Hayley Atwell.

    by Rex Carsalot

    Really busy - and the art deco font and shading - I guess it's the right era, but doesn't really fit the tone of Captain America. But kudos for at least trying something outside of what they usually do.

    by JMiles_T

    I would pay generously to have one of these on my wall. Why the heck didn't they use this as the official poster? It's way better than the one we got.

    It's a great iconic image. Maybe he'll get a lick in before being captured by the Skull. Is Nick Fury going to be one of the Commandos? Doesn't look like it, unless he's the one on the far right.

    by JethroBodine

    I think Cap and Adolph should be about 10 - 15% bigger in the poster to do it justice. Other than that I really like it. Love the classic homage.

    Little Big Book

    by DementedCaver

    Reminds me of the artwork of the older comic books that I used to read awhile back. They where called little big books back then. My "Grandma" had a couple and they sure where fun...I hope the movie lives up to the vibe of the trailer and poster. I am pumped to see this flick.

  • June 11, 2011, 10:44 p.m. CST

    by HEADGEEK

    Actually "Big Little Books" were not comic books, they were square bound books with cheap paper than were written like novels with occassional illustrations usually... but sometimes just single panel to a page throughout, but those were nearly always reprints of Newspaper strips - but this was concurrent with the printing of Comic Books. Comic Books and Big Little Books co-existed and were different creatures.

    Ignore the nitpickers, they just like to bitch.

    by Clavius

    Don't you love how every time a new poster, trailer or still is posted here, the armchair critics stick their oily heads up from behind their bags of chee-tohs in an attempt to make themselves appear learned to the rest of us plebeians. They always seem to latch onto one or two "flaws" that their "discerning eye" has miraculously captured that the rest of us neophytes didn't. "Oh nice try" says one, "but I'm afraid the shading lacks the subtle nuance often found in the compositions of the period you are trying to portray. It's far to anachronistic for my taste" he then rolls a 10 sided die to use his +5 Magus Shield to deflect the Green Wyvern's ice breath. "The overall aesthetic is so hackneyed and contrived I can barely contain the bile in my gullet" says another, whilst trying to scratch his back with a loofa taped to bent coat hanger. "If ONLY the title was .0002 picas lower and .0149 to the left, this would be perfect, but as it stands, UTTER FAIL! And what leading were they using? 12 point? SHEESH!" At that moment, the manager of Kinkos tells him his break was up 10 minutes ago. Nitpickers make me smile in their absolutely "full-of-themselves" absurdity.

    by MST3KPIMP

    we all know how this movie will rely on every avalible technology to sell it so for a poster to suggest it's a classy throwback to the days of the hand-made serials is a bit pretentious. Reminds me of the Super 8 Stuzan poster trying to emulate Speilberg. just too calculated.

    You realize that this is a poster for the cast and crew - meaning a gift to the people that made the film. Joe Johnston made THE ROCKETEER and loves the period and era that the film is set in. The same evocative era that the poster is made. As a gift to those that made the film, it is elegant and fun. That they gave 5 to Hero Complex to give out over the fest they're doing is cool.

    It's just the way people toss out that phrase for anything of a bygone era. It's just ridiculous. Could you imagine standing on the Great Wall of China, and some idiot next to you says something like "Yeah. Old school, dog. This shit is hot." It's a stupid phrase for stupid people. And anyone who disagrees only does so because they belong with the aforementioned stupid people. I have a lot of love for the 1930s and 40s, and to see someone talk like Puff Daddy makes me wish people still had some class.

    by Quint

    You're right. Harry didn't stand up and applaud Richard Donner at the Hero Complex fest. You know why? Because HE WASN'T THERE. Kind of hard to stand and applaud for someone 3,000 miles away. I was there, though, and I stood up and applauded, as one should, when the man came out. I also got the chance to thank him for making Superman so good since that was my parent's first date and if the movie had been shitty who knows if I would even exist right now. To that, Mr. Donner laughed, clapped me on the shoulder and called me "Son!" Yeah, I wet myself a little. Leave me alone, I'm a nerd.

    Is that by Alex Ross?!

    by WeylandYutani

    Now that Drew Struzan has retired, Alex Ross should start doing hand painted movie posters. Someone has to be the antithesis to the Photoshopped-floating-heads motif of the early 90s onwards. While I can't speak for the quality of this movie, I like this poster very much... it feels "right." It looks like the Paramount and Marvel Studios publicity departments "gets" the material.

  • June 12, 2011, 9:31 a.m. CST

    doom master--LOL at your ignorance.

    by SC87

    The only thing that the poster and Struzan's art have in common are that they are painted and relatively photo-realistic. The composition is different from any Struzan poster. The style isn't a match by any means. Most importantly, Struzan's work is a lot tighter than this (though, this is pretty damn sweet). Struzan isn't the only guy that has painted posters. As others have pointed out, this smacks of posters from the 20s, 30s, and 40s more than anything else.

    by CoolNewsPFD

    Just saw them both yesterday with lazy Knowles sitting behind me. The first 1/2 hour of Superman The Movie is exceptional and then... Otis arrives and those parts are a mess!! Just ridiculous!! Why would the world's greatest criminal mind saddle himself with lunkheads like Beatty and Perrine? The Donner cut is also NOT as good as the original Superman II. Especially the ending when Superman... once again... flies around the world to change time!!!! He flies so far back that Zod and crew are never released from the Phantom Zone yet... Clark still goes back to the diner to teach the hillbilly truck driver a lesson!!!!!! But that couldn't have happened if Superman changed time!!!!!!! Just utter nonsense.

    Superhero movie of the summer goes to...

    by ninpobugei

    ...X-MEN: FIRST CLASS. I saw THOR and really liked it, but XM:FC was in a class by itself. The story that filled in the gaps of everything that's come before was just SO good. I was really quite surprised.</p> <p> All that said, I'm a raving GL fan, but I think this movie is going to be all flash and little substance. So far, the trailers have been fantastic at rendering the GL Corps., Oa and even the Guardians, but the Paralax story just looks weak, as do the ridiculously cheesy ring constructs. That plus the incredible miscasting of Ryan Reynolds and completely missing the character of Hal Jordan. No thanks.</p> <p> Lastly, Capt. America just really leaves me a little cold. I think we've seen all the best parts in the trailer. And the movie isn't going to play well overseas, so I think that the worldwide gross is going to be a lot lower than they're planning. My prediction is that THOR or GL will win for total box office, but XM:FC wins for best story.

    Unless you are 120 years old, I would consider anything today done in a style from the 1940s to most definitely be 'old-school'. Unless the expression itself is what bothers you since no one actually said 'old-school' in the 1940s. What would be more appropriate for you? Retro? Archaic? STFU?

    by ninpobugei

    I've seen untold numbers of movies in the theater and I can now officially say I've had enough. Overpriced, loaded with annoying & rude assholes, packed with commercials (not necessarily trailers), matinees either completely gone or reduced to just shows before 3pm (instead of 6pm) and at prices just $1.50 less than full-price night shows. Down with movie theaters, long live downloads!

    Derek Luke plays...

    by Hipshot

    Gabe Jones, one of the Howling Commandos. Based on the crew list, it looks as if Jones and Dum Dum Dugan are the only "Howlers" in the movie.

    any way to make this?

    by mr teaspoon

    I don't know jack shit about this kind of thing, but is there a way one could take that to Kinkos and get it blown up without a ridiculous loss in quality?

    Old School is a pretty common term, sir

    by Larry Sellers

    And I'm pretty sure that it isn't just used by Puff Daddy fans. Of course, since I disagree with you, I've automatically lost any credibility and am beneath your station. By the way, calling everyone who disagrees with you "stupid" is the very epitome of this "class" you speak of. You'll find it in spades on this site.

    LMFAO @ people defending the phrase 'old school.'

    by nico_laos

    Back in the day, around 2500 BC, my man Khufu was the baddest moffucka around. He ruled all of Egypt, and shit. Homie was old school, and wasn't about to go out like some bitch. He knew a true pimp builds pyramids, and the biggest pimp has the biggest pyramid, right? Well guess what his crazy ass did?

    Does that sound acceptable?

    Alex Ross Is Jealous

    by filegumbo

    Seriously, that is an amazing piece of art. Even the lettering screams 40's! If the movie is half as good as this poster I'll be happy.

    Clavius, love your comments!

    You are dead on. Friggen armchair geeks. Hey, I love my comic books and sci-fi too. I also know what a vagina feels like.

    Uh... this is not a very good poster.

    by Teddy Artery

    Looks like the artist has a limited knowledge of classic poster design. There is a lot of clutter and little in the way of a focal point or dynamic motion above the strong diagonal line bisecting the layout. Frankly, the characters were placed in the poster in a haphazard manner. Red Skull needs to be much bigger (or smaller), the faces should have been repositioned (yes, I'm suggesting actually painting characters, instead of relying on photos and using Photoshop) to emphasize the dynamism of the best of the old propaganda posters. I would have rejected this as Art Director. Sorry, fellas.

    It's too easy to come here and complain. Instead, give us an example of a poster you would have approved of, if you were employed by Marvel/Disney as Art Director. To me it's a pretty god damn awesome poster that beats most stuff coming out today.

    Uh...there are a lot of joyless parasites on here

    by Come_ON

    teddy artery, you are a sad, sad little troll. I'm sure whatever crappy entry-level graphic design job you have or wish you had makes you think you have some sort of expertise in the art of 'classic poster design' but really you have just mastered the art of 'being a pathetic troll that has made the internet a toxic wasteland'

    by sith_rising

    stab the fucker in the throat, instead of punching him. but hey, I realize it's an homage to that stupid comic cover

    Seriously? You are criticizing it because he isn't stabbing him? Free speech is clearly overrated.

    Love this poster!

    by BiggusDickus

    Great retro feel. Hope some of the 'Rocketeer' magic rubs off on this; it was a criminally underrated movie!

    I'm just glad Bruno Mars made his way into this flick.

    according to joblo. Most of it's with pencil, ink and paint. Pics AND text. Beat that!

    The theatre went wild during the Cap trailer...

    by jericho1368

    previewing before Super 8 this weekend. It really looks great. I think this flick is going to be a winner. Chris Evans nailed this role.

  • June 13, 2011, 3:13 p.m. CST

    PS. I like the poster.

    The look on Hitler's face: priceless.

    That poster is a hoot. Love it.

    Hitler ducked out of the way

    by Dr_PepperSpray

    But the strain caused him to suffer a heart attack.

  • June 13, 2011, 8:45 p.m. CST

    I love the Howling Commando's!

    by Doggus47

    When I saw they were in this, I didn't even notice Hitler getting socked.

  • June 13, 2011, 10:12 p.m. CST

    THAT'S a real movie poster!

    by Violator90

    Cap looks like its going to be a very good movie and now with this sweet poster that is a throw-back to when movie posters WERE an art form and worth getting, I'm definitely getting this and looking forward to the movie. But punching out Hitler... I hope that scene IS in the movie, just for that scene alone I would pay to see the movie. (AMERICA! FUCK YEAH! Sorry but had to throw that in there.) Marvel better keep this up with their other properties.

    by Continentalop

    He could be punching you. That also would make a cool poster.

  • June 14, 2011, 3:41 a.m. CST

    This is one of the best posters I've seen

    by AllPowerfulWizardOfOz

    Fantastic. Sure I know it's a throw back but it's a genius level move considering. Truly classy and just full of win. So stoked for this.

    Can't they just get rid of all that red,white and blue USA shit...you know, like all the stuff that makes him the hero he is? /

  • June 15, 2011, 1:14 p.m. CST

    Absolutely beautiful.

    by JoeSixPack

    The poster is great, what a beautiful idea. I hope this is the best movie of the summer.

  • June 15, 2011, 1:21 p.m. CST

    LOVE THIS!!!

    by Kremzeek

    I'm not even a "Marvel guy", really, but this Cap movie looks amazing. This poster seals the deal for me. This is easily my most anticipated superhero movie. As far as what other countries think... In this particular case I don't care. It's Captain AMERICA. I don't complain about Bond being too British, now do I? =)
