USAToday.com — It wasn’t long ago that most of the explosions in Sebastian Stan’s on-screen life were of the sort caused by catty teen girls on New York City’s Upper East Side.
The stage-trained actor has left the TV soap-opera drama of Gossip Girl behind. Now, he’s armed with a cool costume, heavy weaponry, an abundance of psychological issues and, well, a metal arm as the complicated antagonist of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Drawing from a Marvel Comics story line, Stan’s Winter Soldier character is actually Bucky Barnes, the best friend and former partner of Captain America (Chris Evans) from World War II.
Like Cap, Bucky was thought to be killed in the line of duty. But instead of being encased in ice for 70 years like his buddy, Bucky was brainwashed and turned into an assassin who now works for Hydra. His mission: Eliminate Cap, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and pretty much anyone who gets in Hydra’s way.
“Bucky had to essentially become like part machine,” says Stan, who reprises the role from 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger.
While the Winter Soldier is essentially a new character, the actor revisited some aspects of Bucky he established in the first movie for continuity’s sake — which are important when Cap and his new foe figure out their connection in the heat of battle.
“Those are some meaty scenes, because it is a meaty concept,” Evans says. “Waking up 70 years later is heavy enough, and then seeing someone you thought was dead — that’s big. And he’s evil!” Continue reading
StudioSystemNews.com — Disney’s Marvel superhero movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier soared to record-breaking heights at the weekend box office.
The film, which is the sequel to 2011?s Captain America: First Avenger and the ninth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe earned a gripping $96.2 million. That qualifies as April’s biggest opening ever beating out the 2011 action film Fast & Furious 5 ($86.1 million). The number also tops this year’s The Lego Movie, which earned $69 million in February and Disney’s last Marvel superhero film 2013?s Thor: The Dark World, which premiered to an eye-popping 85.7 million.
The critics have been kind to The Winter Soldier, with 89 percent of reviewers recommending it. The film stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and Anthony Mackie and features Robert Redford in a part that plays homage to his roles in 1970s thrillers such as Three Days of the Condor. Joe and Anthony Russo directed the movie, which cost $170 million to make and made its debuted in 3,938 theaters, many of which were 3D.
Its predecessor, Captain America: The First Avenger debuted to over $65 million and ultimately went on to earn $176.6 million.
Captain America is the latest to prosper from the 2012 comic book ensemble The Avengers, which earned $623 million in 2012 and has supported continuing tales from the all-star team, which includes Thor and Iron Man.
ClevelandMagazine.com — While actor Sebastian Stan completely changed his look for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, his character Bucky Barnes goes from being Captain America’s best friend to his arch-nemesis — the Winter Soldier. He opens up to us about the nuances of acting in a mask and the unprecedented access our city provided for the film.
It’s exciting to see my character take this turn and show more sides of him. But, at the same time, it was challenging. I felt like I had a lot of homework to do. This character is so complex and tragic in a way and there are so many sides to him that hopefully we will see in the future.
The Winter Soldier wears a mask for most of the film, which made it difficult for me to convey emotions. But it also kind of helped in a way. I felt when I was looking at myself in the mirror that I couldn’t recognize myself at all. I had to pay more attention to the way I behaved, the way I moved and the physicality of it all.
A lot of the close combat was very difficult for us to shoot. It was hard because your heart is racing and you’re trying to get it right. But you’re also going over it in your mind, because you have rehearsed it so many times and you’re concerned with not hurting the other person.
I did feel bad about shutting down the [West] Shoreway and the traffic problems that it caused, but I honestly never thought we would be granted that kind of access. Most times with these films you end up working with a green screen. I feel like you can really tell the difference with this one, because we didn’t.
As an actor, it helps so much to be able to turn up on set and see an actual highway be shut down and explosions everywhere. You get goosebumps.
