New CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Featurette Examines Henry Jackman's Score

Composer Henry Jackman (X-Men: First Class) provided the rousing score for Anthony and Joe Russo's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and the following featurette sees him talk more about his work on the Marvel Studios sequel. We also have yet another new TV spot...

After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier.


Starring Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Sebastian Stan, Scarlett Johansson, Frank Grillo, Felicity Jones, Georges St-Pierre, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp, Samuel L. Jackson, and Robert Redford, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is set to be released in 3D and IMAX 3D in the UK on 26th March and in the US on April 4th.

Score was meh imo. Nothing special.
charlie2094 - 4/2/2014, 12:59 PM
Like what I've heard of the score so far, definitely sounds more like a thriller/conspiracy film than another big blockbuster, the Winter Soldier sound is great!
GizmoEl - 4/2/2014, 12:59 PM
The best part of the score was that they kept a lot of the great music from the first film. The score wasn't anything special but it was definitely right for the tone of the movie.

I think I'll miss the Silvestri score that started in the First Avenger & continued into The Avengers, but that's just a nitpick. This music sounds pretty solid too!
marvel72 - 4/2/2014, 1:04 PM
i thought the score was good,but i'm a bit bias though because i think its the best comic book movie ever!

I thought the score was pretty damn stellar. My favourite pieces were Taking a Stand which sounded like something that would be in a Captain America film. End of the Line which was pretty emotional and The Winter Soldier theme. Holy shit the Winter Soldier's theme is amazing. Just it coupled with the Winter Soldiers silent, intimidating and deadly appearance makes the music all the more better.He seems less like a human and more like an unmerciful killing machine with no remorse.

I wish the Alan Silvestri score would have carried over, but at the same time I can see that it would not fit with WS themes. 2 more dyas!

I've said it before and I'll say it again:

Marvel has TRULY outdone themselves. Whedon will have to work a miracle to top TWS. Favorite CBM to date.
MightOfMagneto - 4/2/2014, 1:17 PM
I liked his Magneto score on First class! Alan's score was boring.
Gusto - 4/2/2014, 1:20 PM
Is there something on my face?

Pasto - 4/2/2014, 1:25 PM
I loved ever single second of this film. The Russos didn't make this film like Iron Man 3, with cheesy humor and questionable character development. They made the tone serious, packed with wonderful dialogue, action, and everything a CBM should be. Marvel has done it, hopefully AOU can top this.

Gus, I'd say that mug is a blight upon the face of the planet.

Like a boil, or a mole.

Or herpes.

When did Entertainment Tonight start doing real behind-the-scenes movie making features again (versus celebrity fluff)? I haven't seen something like this out of that show since 1989. (Yeah, I recognize this was a web-only featurette, but it's something).

Looks perfectly normal to me

I loved Alan Silvestri's score for Captain America. The music is as iconic as the Superman theme from John Williams. It's what I will associate with Captain America everytime I hear it. I'm disheartened as to why marvel can't keep the same composer for the sequels. How wonderful was it to hear his theme play briefly in the Avengers? It was fantastic. I've heard that the theme is at least played in the beginning during the opening intro but that's it.

They should've had Nomis & Me score this bitch!

I think you look great.

I thought the score was pretty good... My favourites:

We come correct with the beats.
ProfessorX - 4/2/2014, 1:58 PM
Skip to 4:14 here and enjoy teh epicness:

ricojbx - 4/2/2014, 2:16 PM
Winter Soldier's theme is great, the main riff of it is almost like a battle horn sound for him.
Mrcool210 - 4/2/2014, 2:36 PM
@MrBlackJack that statement couldn't be more true. Movie World Express is A total Ass hat.
Blastaar - 4/2/2014, 4:16 PM
Where's that guy at that did a whole article about how bad Captain America 3:TWS looks, the shaky cam stuff, and how it's going to fail? Was that "1to10"? Man people need to call his dumb ass out so he can get destroyed! Where is he, hiding?
Blastaar - 4/2/2014, 4:17 PM
^I meant Captain Americ 2:TWS, well yal knew what I meant.
MightyZeus - 4/2/2014, 4:39 PM
I did not enjoy Jackman's score's at first but i grew to like his score's over time. Some i dont like but some i really do appreciate from him, for example i really love the score from First Class. The Winter Soldier's score sounds absolutely amazing.
NightForce - 4/2/2014, 4:51 PM
Love the soundtrack Jackman killed it.

CAP 2 end credits scene LEAKED! get a look at the twins in their glory
cimmerian - 4/2/2014, 7:14 PM
Thanks for sharing, Professor X! Love this movie!
mgeoff88 - 4/2/2014, 8:07 PM
The music in CA:TWS is amazing. At least from what I heard.

@yoss MovieWorldExpress goes by AndrewPanExpress these days. More like AndrewPainInTheAssExpress.

I still remember when he posted up a screen cap of him talking dirty with a girl on Twitter or something to try to prove what a stud he was. Classic lol.

Why Marvel doesn't keep any of their themes? The main theme of The First Captain America was awesome and perfect for the character. Its way more interesting when the hero has his iconic song like Superman and Spiderman had with their films.

I really hope they keep the Avengers theme, that was epic and is already very iconic.
pepe - 4/3/2014, 2:27 AM
Good score ...
MadTitan - 4/3/2014, 3:26 AM
i had a few favorites from this Jackman score specifically those cue's where the Silvestri score has been reference. i just wish Jackman added more choir tone to the Cap theme to make it even more epic. Over all though I think Jackman's music serve it's purpose well.
peppy - 4/3/2014, 5:22 AM
Jackmans scorer for cap 2 is perfection it just goes with the film like a perfect puzzle piece and sets that tone

TheVirgin - 4/3/2014, 5:57 AM
I love the 'end of the line' score!!
case - 4/3/2014, 5:09 PM
The score was really well done I thought. Not genius, but so solid. The Winter Soldier theme bits was reminiscent of how Hans Zimmer did the joker, but not in a shit or derivative way.

I thought MovieWorld Express WAS 1to10...
thespyglass - 4/4/2014, 1:23 AM
Liked the score a lot, really feeling John Powell's Bourne influence. There are also some great motifs with what sound like... kazoos?! Only sinister as hell. You know the bits I'm talking about if you've listened to it. And some very touching, quiet, thoughtful bits without being at all sentimental. Plus a lovely homage to the first Cap, Smithsonian.
