Captain America'91 coming in may...

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
Albert Pyun said on his Facebook that the 127min "Director's cut" of Captain America comes to BD in may. He is self releasing through Curran Pictures on his website.

I saw that and cannot wait, I loved this as a kid (yes I know its not a great movie)
Plus this is one of the few "lost cuts" of movies I have been dying to see, lets hope this starts a trend!

That should be... interesting. Be interesting to see a BD release of Fantastic Four 1994 as well.

lol. Psych, Heil Hitler!

I saw this as a teenager, and I remember sort of looking forward to it because the costumes looked pretty cool in the trailers and movie magazines. Superhero costumes really took a turn for the better after Burton's Batman... too bad that and some of the stop motion animation were the only things worth watching the film for. I'd still be interested in seeing a Directors Cut though (out of curiosity more than anything).

I liked the Flash costume, that owed a lot to Batman

Yep. Exactly one of the post-Batman costumes I was thinking of.

I remember only seeing bits of this movie... but I could swear there was an even earlier film or series based on Cap? All I can remember is a scene where they are fighting in or near a semi trailer. Is that this one?

There were a couple 70s versions where Cap rides a motorcycle and wears a motorcycle helmet. Maybe that's what you're thinking of. I only caught a few minutes of those probably when they were being played on UHF in the early/mid 80s or something. I also believe there's an early black and white serial that came out in the 40s or something... but never saw those.

Ah yes!

The first one "Captain America" is the one that I saw. Reading the description of it makes it sound terrible. I was just a kid, what did I know?

I am facebook friends with Pyun, and I am fairly sure you'll need to be one to get it directly from his company as he is TRUELY self distributing it. I just got the Director's Cut DVD of "Cyborg" from him. Cyborg was DVD only as the transfer is from a VHS workprint. Captain America however is being re-mastered from Albert's own 35mm print of his final cut.

I know the Blu-Ray starts selling in may, then he takes his cut on a festival circuit.

Hehe. And look at that, Christopher Lee was in the sequel. Man, it'd probably cost a fortune to hire him now.

Ah. I really like Cyborg. Always have. I could see a more successful Blu-Ray of that rather than Captain America, but I imagine they couldn't do a Director's Cut otherwise. Too bad it'll only be available for facebook friends. I avoid facebook as much as I can. Tell us how the film looks when you get a chance. I'd love to hear that under the rough surface there's a sparkling gem someplace in there.

This will be mine! Plus, who could forget the flesh-colored ears on the suit.

+1. It's really cheesy, but I enjoyed it. Heck, I'd settle for just a standard DVD at this point.

More effort than most studios put in with higher profile movies

When he releases a director's cut of Nemesis, then I might get excited.

If you mean the Roger Corman-produced Fantastic Four movie, I doubt it will ever see the light of day with a proper release. For those unfamiliar with the production, it was never intended to see the light of day, it was produced just so the production company could retain rights to the franchise.

They actually lied to the actors and crew, telling them it would be released, or at the very least be used as a backdoor pilot for a series, but never had any intention of releasing it in any form.

The Pyun films are for sale from his website, not just to facebook people.
Facebook is how I got the beat on the info.

Ah, but "nature eventually found a way".

Yeah, I saw the bootleg version a number of years ago. For as bad as it was, I really liked The Thing and Dr. Doom's costumes. The Thing's costume had a sort of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle look to it that I thought looked pretty cool. Mr. Fantastic's growing arms were ludicrous though, as was the Invisible Woman's... invisibility... lol. Oh, and who can forget the animated Human Torch at the end. heehee. Great cheesy goodness.

I was reading someplace (might have been here) that there's was drive to get a DVD version out... Ah, here it is http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-...29222430445353 Another facebook thingy.

That amazon link is for a bootleg.

I'd be surprised if this comes out considering we're talking about Marvel property let alone it looks any good. The godawful looking Cyborg director's cut is available on Blu-ray through Pyun, but even he recommends buying the DVD edition instead since there's no difference.

And yet an anamorphic version of True Lies is still not available in the US...

...there's no justice in the world.

At least he's honest about it. He made it abundantly clear that Cyborg is a VHS transfer and not very good.
Captain America however was never lost or damaged, just ignored. Just like "Meet the Applegates", "Godzilla 1985", "Beastmaster 2 & 3", and "The Video Dead".

Don't get me started on Meet the Applegates! It's criminal the way that flick is treated

Oh, I go on rants about how tons of New World FIlms' catalogue is just neglected.
Applegates and Godzilla being the biggest victims.
