Okay, first, a quick lesson for you non-Hollywood types, and then I'll get to my concern....

The trailer pictured here on the right has the name "Star Wagons" clearly branded on the back.  This is what is known in the industry as a "honey wagon".  When a movie does a location shoot of any kind, these things are brought in for everyone to stay in, like dorms on wheels.  (Side note:  if you are looking to work in movies, here's an option.  The people who transport the honey wagons even sometimes get their names in the end credits thanks to union rules.)

This (obviously unauthorized) picture was taken in Los Angeles.  According to the call sheet, they are shooting a movie called Frostbite.  However, Frostbite doesn't have any data on it.  Which means it isn't a blockbuster.  Which means you wouldn't have tents concealing the action from everybody, they'd just be shooting out in the open because, Who gives a shit?

Therefore, the name is fake.  It is to throw off prying eyes.

The first clue as to what the movie really is comes from the period costumes everyone in the shot is wearing.  A little digging on the photographer's part, and he found out what movie is really shooting there.

Captain America
.

And this is the part that worries me.

The first Fantastic Four movie was shooting extremely late.  In fact, according to industry insiders, they were still editing the film and putting the prints to send to theaters together a week before its opening weekend.  Fox had people working around the clock to get it done and get it out.

And we all know how THAT movie turned out.

Same thing with X-Men Origins:  Wolverine.  Everyone was brought in for reshoots a couple of months before the movie's release.

And we all know how THAT movie turned out.

If they are not only shooting this late, but maybe doing retakes, I have a very bad feeling about the Captain America movie....

"Frostbite" makes sense as a cover name, after all, doesn't Cap get cryogenicly frozen for a while?

Yup, encased in ice. This is why Penn And Teller's episode about cryonics is bullshit. If Cap survived, why can't regular people?

And it's available at GNC, motherfucker. Or do you really expect me to believe all that stuff they sell is a rip-off? (I mean, there's gotta be SOMETHING in there that does exactly what it says on the tin.)
