It’s the news that Hunger Games fans have been waiting for. The Hunger Games movie will be released on Bluray and DVD in the U.S at one minute past midnight as the clock ticks over to August 18th. A digital download will also be available on the same day.
For those of you counting, that’s 12 weeks from now. If you can’t wait you can pre-order your DVD/Bluray copy from Friday.
Entertainment Weekly has the scoop with the official DVD trailer. They also report:
“The motion picture event of the year is poised to become the home entertainment event of the year,” Lionsgate’s VP of Home Entertainment Ron Schwartz told EW. “With a midnight launch and midnight retail events scheduled at stores around the country, we expect to replicate the same level of consumer excitement generated by the film’s theatrical debut.”
EW has revealed that The Hunger Games release will be a two-disc set and will include three hours of bonus material.
Apparently we’ll get to see an eight-part documentary about the making of the movie, interviews with the cast and crew. There will also be a feature on changes that were made from the book and The Capitol propaganda film that was shown at the Reaping in District 12 will also be in there.
So will you buying your very own copy? Of course, we can’t wait!
