Captain America Blu-ray Steelbook and Pictures
Captain America has been released as an HMV exclusive Blu-ray steelbook in the UK. Available online and in-store, it's another in a line of high-quality limited editions from the retailer, and their second to feature a Marvel character in just a few months.
Featuring a distressed-style front cover image of the iconic sheild, and a rear picture of Chris Evans as the titular character, it's easily on a par with HMV's superb Thor Steelbook. The 'Captain America, The First Avenger' lettering is slightly embossed, and although it came with a dual UK/Ireland certification stamp, it was a removeable sticker.
Inside sees another image of Captain America, along with one featuring the Red Skull behind the discs. In fact, it's only the discs that let this package down, as they have no artwork at all.
This is a Triple Play set, with the Blu-ray, DVD and a downloadable digital copy. The special features look like this:
- Audio commentary with Joe Johnston, Shelly Johnson and Jeffrey Ford.
- Marvel One-Shot: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer HD.
- The Assembly Begins HD.
- Six HD Featurettes: Outfitting a Hero, Howling Commandos, Heightened Technology, The Transformation, Behind the Skull, Captain America's Origin.
- Deleted Scenes in HD.
- Trailers for the Sega game and the animated Avengers film.
The Steelbook is still available through HMV, priced at £19.99.
