CAPTAIN AMERICA Comes To DVD!

This July, Albert Pyun’s 1990 Captain America film will arrive on DVD for the very first time.

Starring Matt Salinger (son of author J.D.) as Captain America, this film was the first to feature the character close to his comic book origins (both a 1944 movie serial starring Dick Purcell and two television movies from 1979 with Reb Brown offered different takes on the character).

Despite being released internationally, Captain America never got a U.S. theatrical release and with excitement surrounding the upcoming Captain America: The First Avenger, this somewhat campy feature is the perfect antidote to the overly serious comic book films of recent memory.

The Very First Avenger Makes His Long Awaited Debut On DVD on July 19th

LOS ANGELES (June 16, 2011) – Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment’s “manufacturing on demand” (“MOD”) program is excited to announce its newest addition, CAPTAIN AMERICA, available on DVD as part of MGM’s Limited Edition Collection.  Based on the bestselling Marvel Comics series, CAPTAIN AMERICA stars Matt Salinger (What Dreams May Come) as a crime-fighting superhero whose strengths and abilities may save the United States from nuclear destruction. 
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 also features supporting performances from Ned Beatty (Superman), Darren McGavin (A Christmas Story), Michael Nouri (Flashdance) and Melinda Dillon (Close Encounters of the Third Kind) and Kim Gillingham (“One Big Family”).  The DVD will be available for sale on online retailers everywhere.
