Winter Soldier in Beijing

The starry cast of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” touched down in Beijing on Sunday ahead of the film’s premiere and commercial release.

The event in the upmarket shopping and leisure quarter Sanlitun Village is one of the first times a Hollywood movie has kicked off an Asian promo campaign in China. It was arranged as a tie up between Walt Disney and Chinese video site Youku Tudou.

Crowds braved the poor weather to get a glimpse of Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson and centerpiece Chris Evans.
