Captain America's Coming Out on Blu-ray and with a Directors Cut!
I didn't even know there had been a Captain America film before, until just about 4 months ago. Now this is a film most people try to not bring up on purpose on many, many grounds but I felt this news was kinda noteworthy.
But it's not the Captain America you probably want to see.. Or is it?
Just a little bit of juice on the film for your own information: supposedly Dolph Lundgren, Arnold Schwarzenegger and even Val Kilmer were some of the few considered to play the iconic character. The film itself was supposed to be a huge budget spectacle for 20th Century Fox. Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, the financiers left the project just before it started filming and the result was, well, a special kinda film.
The man behind the film was Albert Pyun, famous for his low budget b-movies and recuts.
According to Pyun, the "director's cut" will be based on "my own 35 mm CA work picture and temp mix" that I did before he left the film.
The film is now extended to the original 124 minutes instead of 97 minutes. It has "a few added scenes, and is more character-oriented and less 'super hero action.'" Also, Pyun's version has a different soundtrack and is in 5.1 stereo.
It will arrive on BluRay in May, and screen at the Fantasia Film Festival in July and B-Movie Celebration in September. For details on the release you can sign up to get more announcements over at Albert Pyun’s website: www.pyun.com/
Here's the trailer to the film, in case you haven't watch it:
