Is Captain America to be Captain England?
Have you ever dreamed that Captain America is made in England? Based on this message, it would only be appropriate that Steve Rogers will be at least demoted to Lieutenant America.
First, budget constraints forced producers to move “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” production of its tropical location titular of the tax-friendly boundaries Hawaii and London. Well, the same money concerns have sent “Captain America” overseas is: The film on the patriotic heroes of the comic, ironic, is not shot in America.
The loss of production business of “Captain America: The First Avenger” is another blow to the city of Los Angeles that has seen its share of big-budget films to flee to the heavy tax burden on its state levees Movies to escape. California offers tax credits for smaller films, but when you consider “Captain America’s” Budget $ 140,000,000, it did not qualify for a break. London offers tax credits up to 25 percent. When confronted with the current economic climate, it is hard to argue with these numbers-patriotic or not.
Sure, some of the “Captain America” adaptation set in London, literally, for those scenes, the location makes sense. But it also makes perfect sense for Captain America when he did fight Nazis to show a little patriotism and film seems in his homeland. But, as every American knows – including its captain – Money Talks.
Also ironic: California’s taxes are a blessing for the city in British Columbia in Vancouver, which has in recent years, a boom seen of what might otherwise I big Hollywood business (movies like “Twilight Saga” a production have found home north of the border ).
But there is a sense of loss – not counting the hundreds of Hollywood that jobs disappear – because it is, you know, Captain America. This was a character that creates a full year before Pearl Harbor was bombed by Japan even. The cover of the early Captain America pounds lost, the hero punching Adolph Hitler in the jaw as a way to show America’s support of its European allies.
Big budget films abroad to avoid the costs, has been filmed no entirely new phenomenon. George Lucas shot all three “Star Wars” prequels in Australia to cost Union (Lucas stong opponents unions after a quarrel was between him and the Directors’ Guild of the title sequence of the original “Star Wars” no listing of the vote to avoid). shot from the six films, only “Return of the Jedi” featured live-action scenes in the United States.
Given the recent wave of films, exchange of sites that actually includes the location in the film’s title, it will not be long until he discovered that the “Sleepless In Seattle was” actually shot in Albuquerque.
“Captain America: The First Avenger” with Chris Evans in the title role, is for a summer 2011 in the cinemas.
