The first trailer for Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War" debuted online to a record-shattering 61M global views in its first 24 hours!

In theaters May 6, 2016, the third installment in the Captain America franchise was launched by a surprise appearance by Captain America himself, Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" last Tuesday, and immediately debuted online globally following its first look on air, along with three epic posters for the film.

This debut trailer for "Captain America: Civil War" almost doubled the previous record, held by the first trailer for Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" – which debuted to a then record-breaking 34 million views in 2014.

Winning three straight weekends of domestic box office has become a rare achievement in the industry. As such, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, like The Lego Movie before it, is an unqualified success story. A fourth weekend as box office ruler would have given the Marvel release bragging rights over its toy story opponent as the two battle for supremacy as the biggest film of 2014 to date. That victory proved elusive as The Winter Soldier fell 37% to $16 million this weekend, sliding to second place in the process. After only 24 days in theaters, the latest Disney comic book movie has already grossed $224.9 million domestically. With $645 million in the bank worldwide, it has surpassed Thor: The Dark World and Iron Man 2 to become the second most popular standalone title featuring an Avengers character.

I'm a real sucker for trivia and other stuff.
In this post i collected some interesting facts for you. ^^
I hope you enjoy them as much as i did.^^

Chris as Captain America
  1. Sam Worthington and Will Smith were in early talks for the role of Captain America. Later on Garrett Hedlund, Channing Tatum, Scott Porter, Mike Vogel, Sebastian Stan, Chris Evans, Wilson Bethel, John Krasinski, Michael Cassidy, Chace Crawford and Jensen Ackles were on the final shortlist for the role. Kellan Lutz, Ryan Phillippe and Alexander Skarsgård carried out auditions, but ultimately the role went to Chris Evans.
  2. Chris Evans declined the role three times before accepting the part. After that, he had a meeting with the director and the producers who convinced him to take the role.
  3. Chris Evans was attracted to the role of Captain America by its character: "Even if it wasn't a comic book. I think the story of Steve Rogers is great. He's a great guy. Even if it was just a script about anybody, I would probably want to do it. It wasn't necessarily about the comic itself. He's a great character to play; he just happens to be a comic book character."
  4. Chris Evans sixth comic book movie after the two Fantastic Four movies, Push, The Losers, and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. He also voiced Casey Jones in TMNT, also based on a comic book.
  5. The film was originally meant to be a standalone film, but after Joss Whedon was hired to direct The Avengers he was given a copy of the film's script and made a few rewrites to tie it in to the Marvel Cinematic Universe: "I just got to make some character connections. The structure of the thing was really tight and I loved it, but there were a couple of opportunities to find his voice a little bit - and some of the other characters - and make the connections so that you understood exactly why he wanted to be who he wanted to be. And progressing through the script to flesh it out a little bit."
  6. Contrary to popular belief, a body double was not used for Chris Evans for the scenes when he was skinny. The filmmakers had originally planned to hire a body double and superimpose Evans' face onto the double's body, but ultimately scrapped the idea since director Joe Johnston claimed that Evans moved in a unique way and that no body double could replicate his movements. Ultimately, the filmmakers utilized digital technology to "shrink" Evans down, essentially erasing portions of his physique, until they came up with what the filmmakers called "Skinny Steve". Over 250 shots were filmed like this, and because the shrinking process left empty space in the background, many of the scenes had to be filmed in front of a green screen so that they could superimpose the backgrounds back into the scene. Even attempts to double him for long distance shots and the scene where Steve chases down Kruger failed due to Chris having a unique and unduplicatable way of moving.
