Complete with at least one high quality screen grab from every shot, let’s take a good look at the new Avengers trailer and see if we can’t work out what’s going on, and what it has to do with we’ve heard about the film so far.
Because the story features a large number of high quality images it has been spread across several pages to help users on mobile devices and networks access the story easily. You’ll find the page controls at the bottom of each section.
You may have to click through to make the picture bigger to see it, but there’s a downed Quinjet here. It’s to the right of frame, where the sun comes through the buildings, apparently crashed at the foot of the tall block.
Also, count how many of the cars are taxis, how many are police cars and how many appear to be privately owned. Is New York really this full of cabs?
If you look half way across frame, right at the bottom, you’ll see one guy has his camera out and is facing whatever it is everybody else is running from, presumably taking pictures or recording. He just turns to run away as the shot is fading to black.
And here he is again, two thirds of the way to right of frame. No idea what he thinks he’s getting on camera, though. There’s nothing there.
Bits of burning building, raining down from above.
You know, it’s probably worth mentioning, at least in passing, that this is yet another film to feature aerial assaults on New York skyscrapers, scenes of mass panic, huge structural damage, and buildings falling. We all know what is in the zeitgeist, and it doesn’t need spelling out, but this will be the first time we see Captain America sent up against this situation.
Also note what Nick Fury starts saying at this moment:
War has started. And we are hopelessly outgunned.
This building appears to be exploding from the inside, which is not something we see in the other shots.
