Ridiculous Trailer And Stills For Upcoming 1990's Captain America DVD Re-Release!

Set to be re-released on DVD later this year, MGM have unveiled a trailer for the unbelievably awful looking movie, as well as a few stills of Captain America and the friendly looking Italian Red Skull...

By Josh Wilding - 6/30/2011
During World War II, a brave American soldier (Salinger) volunteers to undergo experiments to become a new super-soldier, codenamed “Captain America.” Infiltrating Germany to sabotage Nazi rockets pointed at the U.S., Captain America faces off with Nazi superhuman warrior Red Skull (Scott Paulin, The Right Stuff) who defeats the hero, throwing him into suspended animation. Frozen for 50 years, Captain America is found and revived only to find that Red Skull has changed identities and has targeted the President of the United States (Ronny Cox, RoboCop) for assassination. With America on the verge of utter chaos, it is up to one man to save the day!










Captain America will be released on DVD on July 19th, later this year. Meanwhile, with an all star cast which includes Chris Evans as Captain America, Sebastian Stan as Bucky, Hugo Weaving as Red Skull, Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, Tommy Lee Jones as Col. Chester Phillips, Stanley Tucci as Abraham Erskine and Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark, Captain America: The First Avenger will be released in cinemas on July 22nd!

Aw c'mon, it's just a bit of fun! I mean it's based on a silly comic from the 40s, lower your expectations people! Not everything can be True Grit after all, nobody is looking for any Academy Awards here. It's just fun y'know, popcorn, turn your brain off..

:)

This is a Classic.. "Gee whiz, we gotta get going, Mr. President."

Wow.

I'm pretty sure that the Chris Evans and John Johnston movie will be a bit better than THAT! LOL!

That Red Skull mask looks like it was made on a jello mold.

I'm watching a special screening of this film this Saturday at Rave theaters in Las Vegas, NV! Can't wait! It's hosted by Maximum Comics. The COOLEST comicbook store ever!

Xenix lol Why wouldn't the new film be superior? That's like comparing Atari 2600 to PlayStation3 and bragging that PS3 is better.

Not many people realize that Matt Salinger is J.D. Salinger's son...

Between the rubber ears, Cap stealing cars, or Cap getting knocked over from a womans purse, this movie rules.

I agree Ror, I saw this movie when I was a kid and loved it, it's really not a bad film, just don't take it too seriously.

The director had his budget decreased, and got screwed by the producers.
It's lemonade, from lemons.

mitchybaby - 6/30/2011, 5:02 PM
umm this is already on DVD

Why re-release this before the movie comes out. Couldn't it hurt sales? :F I think Marvel should have done some animated shorts of Iron Man/Cap/Thor and put them on a DVD or something.
Pygmalion - 6/30/2011, 5:08 PM
haha, all the gunfire and explosions - is this the work of Bay's mentor? :P Oh, it could be his early work, right? It's not too much earlier than The Rock or Bad Boys...
Berger45 - 6/30/2011, 5:17 PM
Make mine Marvel! LMAO!!
mk - 6/30/2011, 5:21 PM

superpooper - 6/30/2011, 5:35 PM
Wow. I can't believe Ned Beatty and Darren McGavin were in this.
GLprime2814 - 6/30/2011, 5:40 PM
I was 10 when I saw this andvit rocked, now noooot so much.
MGS - 6/30/2011, 5:42 PM
It ain't that bad. It's also not so good either, but it's better than the tv movies that preceded it starring that immortal slab of meat REB BROWN!
level1paladin - 6/30/2011, 5:47 PM
Trailer is better than that damn Green Lantern trailer that insists on popping up all day.
Rivehn - 6/30/2011, 6:00 PM
Level1paladin Now your just being a douche seriously.

His head looks like a soggy and rotten cherry.
sexfoodcomics - 6/30/2011, 6:07 PM
What's funny is this movie scored only a little below green lantern on rotten tomatoes. Hahaha.
BIGBMH - 6/30/2011, 6:10 PM
The part that got me most excited was when I realized it had Otis from Superman the Movie.
kevberg - 6/30/2011, 6:12 PM
All Im gonna say is....RUBBER....FRICKIN'....EARS.
Kamdan - 6/30/2011, 6:13 PM
The quality of the trailer is the best treatment I've ever seen for the film. I hope this reflects what the DVD editions of the theatrical release and the director's cut will look like. If it's the same transfer they did for the video releases or when it was online for a while, I will be disappointed.
SHO1138 - 6/30/2011, 6:15 PM
I remember going to see TMNT and seeing the poster for this. Then it never came out. I saw it on HBO or Showtime a few years later.
jjmeylar - 6/30/2011, 6:18 PM
I dunno, guys. This may be worth a watch. I mean: it looks very crappy, but I bet it's kinda entertaining.

It's so lame that it's AWESOME!!!!!

SentinelofLiberty - 6/30/2011, 6:23 PM
I watched this on Hulu a few months back, before it was removed. Much shittier than I remember it being when I was a kid. And for those of you who think the most important considerations in casting should have been "who looks the most like Steve Rogers" and "We have to remain completely faithful to the costume from the funny books," well....here ya go.
kevberg - 6/30/2011, 6:29 PM
@sentinelofliberty

An Italian Red Skull, and a outta shape Cap with a funky nose and rubber ears is faithful?
PirateOpossum - 6/30/2011, 6:31 PM
AWESOME!!! HAHA LOVE IT!!

and the trailer makes it look like a Troma Film!!!
