Hot Sheet: Evans to Betsy

Our top 10 entertainment and events highlights this week include many happy returns: Captain America, Heathers (the musical), and Game of Thrones.



1. FILM: Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Critics are raving about Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the latest chapter in the Marvel film franchise. Chris Evans, brother of gay actor Scott Evans, reprises his role as the hunky vintage superhero, now thrust into the political intrigue of modern times. Whereas the film’s predecessor presented an action flick set in World War II reminiscent of Indiana Jones, The Winter Soldier is a solidly 21st-century conspiracy thriller in which the Captain joins forces with the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) to hunt down an enemy in the nation’s capital. Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens today in wide release. Watch the trailer below. — Daniel Reynolds
