Captain America: The First Avenger Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D (Updated with Trailer)

Posted September 20, 2011 08:24 PM by Matthew Smith

ParamountAmazon is currently taking pre-orders for the Blu-ray release of the 2011 summer blockbuster, Captain America: The First Avenger. The Paramount/Marvel Studios co-production will be available in a 3D Limited Edition combo pack (Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Copy) and a standard combo pack (Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Copy). These will hit retail with starting prices of $54.99 and $42.99 respectively.

The Joe Johnston (Jurassic Park III) feature stars Chris Evans as the iconic superhero along with Hayley Atwell (The Duchess), Hugo Weaving (The Matrix) and Tommy Lee Jones (No Country for Old Men). The film tells the origin story of Steve Rogers' transformation into the super-soldier Captain America and his mission to stop Nazi officer Johann Schmidt/Red Skull (played by Weaving). Captain America performed strong at the box office last month and has hauled in over $316 million worldwide to date.

The Blu-ray for The First Avenger will feature DTS HD Master Audio 7.1 and a 2:39:1 aspect ratio. Though Paramount has yet to fully detail the release, an unconfirmed listing of special features is outlined below.
  • Audio Commentary with director Joe Johnston, cinematographer Shelly Johnson and editor Jeffrey Ford
  • Outfitting a Hero
  • The Assembly Begins
  • Howling Commandos
  • Heightened Technology
  • The Transformation
  • Behind the Skull
  • Captain America's Origins
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Marvel One Shot: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer
  • The Avengers animated series trailer
Captain America: The First Avenger streets on October 25th, 2011.

Update: Marvel has released a new trailer for the Blu-ray that teases some the special features. Check out the second clip below.

We complain about the high cost of the prices, because we know the price drop will only be a certain percentage. Jack up the price before the release date to be extremely high and then lower the price by a certain percentage. We all know the prices will drop before release date, but wouldn't it stand to reason that if the price is set high, most will flip and buy without hesitation when the price drops just a few percent? We are still paying extremely high prices, even when the prices drop.

Blus should be cheaper now. At the beginning, when the HD war was over, the prices were high, then dropped and not the prices are increasing again. What the hell is going on? If we refuse to pre-order and if we refuse to pay these high prices, then the venders will get the idea the public will not put up with this highway robbery. So yes, we complain about the prices... justifiably so...

No way for that price (even though it will obviously go down). I must say although I enjoyed the movie, Captain America is not even close to my favorite super heroes. With all this said, best reason to pick this up is the freaking 7.1 DTS-MA sound track!!!

yeah it is funny these price complainers. come on now we all know that during release week its gonna be like $25 for a combo pack. there is nothing to worry about here. the pattern for pricing is pretty simple if you ask me . and nobody ever has to pay the "msrp" unless you dont have a clue.

i think this movie was over hyped and overrated .the captain is not one of my favorite characters. maybe a second viewing is needed

I actually went and saw it for a second time today. Great, great film. Unlike the other Avengers origins stories, Steve Rogers was a hero from the get-go. He just didn't have the physical capacity to do anything about it. Tony Stark and Thor had to fall off their high horses and learn a lesson in humility to realize the power of responsibility. However, I especially like how Cap's personality fit in with the time period as well. The kind of pure nobility and bravery he has for wanting to defend others is pretty cool and inspiring, especially in the WWII era where it was much needed. Because of that, I'd have to say this probably my favorite of the pre-Avengers films. Not to mention it was very well-produced and cast. I've been a big fan of Hugo Weaving since V for Vendetta, and it's nice to seem him get more major roles (even if the character didn't do a whole lot). And as far as I'm concerned, this is Chris Evans' breakthrough performance. I hope he gets bigger roles in the future.

As for the pricing. $42.99 SRP isn't all that much more than the usual $39.99 SRP most other BDs have. The first two Iron Man films were on sale for half of that when they first came out, and I'm pretty sure Thor and Cap will follow. As long as the special features are plentiful for both, I certainly don't mind paying $20-25 for 7.1 lossless and at least 90 minutes of extras for a couple of films I think are excellent comic book movies.

Everybody knows street price is going to be far less than SRP. Though the author poorly worded this announcement as "starting prices" as if he's talking about some online auction. Still, SRP does have some influence on street prices, especially at smaller stores that don't buy in the volume that Best Buy or amazon does to be able to offer a better discount. It's also an indicator of studio thinking, and 5 years into the format, higher demand and more sells is supposed to be driving prices down, not up. Paramount (and some others) need a reality check. BDs shouldn't be even $1 more than they were 5 years ago, they should be at least $5 less; it's not a niche format anymore. Replication costs are relative pennies higher than dvd, yet there's still a $5, sometimes $10 premium, even for single disc BDs. I know these are combo packs, but charging everybody for something relatively few will actually use - assuming they don't sell or give them away to friends and relatives, further cheapening the market - that's a whole other rant.

No need for the 3D (since it's upconverted), so will wait for it to go for less than $20.

I also agree that this movie felt as a 'fresh take' on comic book movies; I mean, either they have to be dark and weird or cheese, and this one just tried to be normal.

Re: 3D...I could take it or leave it. It can be fun in the theater when it's done right. Not sure how well it works in the home, as I've only seen a couple displays (one at BB sucked, one at Costco looked better). At any rate, I think some of the 3D hate is about people not wanting to get left out if they're not fans/choose not to go 3D. By that I mean that people (I'm one of them) worry that 3D will start getting a bunch of exclusive features not available with the 2D Blu counterpart. It's possible we'll be forced to buy something we don't care about to get the best version of the Blu.

Also, I think some people think that, by cranking out a lot of 3D content (esp older titles new to Blu), studios are ignoring other titles that could be brought to Blu.

It's sort of like people not liking combo packs because they think they're a total waste (and cost more...and are the only way to get certain features or the extended cut of the film). I like combo packs personally (I like have the digital copy without having to futz with making my own), but I can understand the frustration of those who don't. They shouldn't be forced to buy a combo pack to get the extended cut or all the features.

That's my take on it anyway.

Honestly I think the prices will come down after the release date. There is no way this movie will be a big seller on pre-orders or day 1 purchases with these high prices. These are the highest prices we've seen so far for a new movie release that isn't some Ultimate Edition or some other. There's no way either of these with the discount will ever hit under $27.00 before release day. I think with all the overstock that they'll have after day 1 Amazon or whoever is going to be discounting it like crazy just to get rid of copies.

Saw this in 3D at cinemas, it wasn't the best, forgot it was in 3D for the most part actually, so I'd stick to 2D.

I'm buying it, possibly one of the lesser films of the summer to me, as I left it feeling a bit emotionless towards it, but it was a very good film, I would say close to flawless really, I probably just didn't feel in the mood for it at the time, everything is boding well for Avengers though.

i'll probably wait until Christmas or around there unless there's retail exclusives (unless the date is actually near Christmas lol), it not having a slipcover that'll go away soon makes me in no rush to get it

Peculiar that the "fake" (converted) 3-D films from Paramount like this one and THOR are day and date with the 2-D versions but an actual 3-D film, TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON, is delayed with no firm release date yet.

I also can understand the pricing complaints: the 3-D versions are "limited" so by the time the prices drop they very well may be OOP. IRON MAN 2 has been out for just about a year and the price is still relatively high. Again, Paramount isn't quick to drop the pricing on new first-run titles.

As for the film CAPTAIN AMERICA itself: I'm not surprised by the acclaim for the film. Joe Johnston had previously demonstrated with THE ROCKETEER he is well suited to this kind of material. Kudos to him and the filmmakers to making a film which was released in a summer already saturated with comic book movies stand out from the pack.

Not available for pre-order on Play.com or HMV.com yet. Fingers crossed one of them offers steelbook packaging. Since HMV got the SB exclusive for Thor in the UK, would make sense for them to get this one too.

The movie itself was great fun. Can't wait to watch the behind the scenes feature on how they did the whole Evans' head on a little body because the effect was near flawless.

I saw it in 3D and it didn't really add much apart from one shot of the shield rebounding off a tank towards the camera which made me flinch! Day 1 buy for me.

I'll be picking this up to go with the rest of my super-hero collection.

now that it's been officially released, i might get it first week.. guess it depends. still wish the normal Blu-ray cover wasn't so lame, the 3D cover is much better, but 3D is crap.. but whatever i'll get it eventually though


i wonder if Paramount purposely decided to release this the same week day that Disney is releasing volume 3 and 4 of The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes

Just noticed this morning, Amazon's preorder price(ordered it) of $29.99 dropped to $24.99! I wondered why this started out with such a higher pre-order price right out of the gate over GL, Thor, Xmen?
