‘The Hunger Games’ Brings the Fight to Blu-ray/DVD

EmmittImagine having the entire world of The Hunger Games available to you right in your own home! … Okay, yeah, you kind of already have that if you own the books. But now, you don’t have to bother with that nuisance called imagination — Lionsgate has announced the Blu-ray/DVD release!

One of the biggest films of the 2012 stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson as two teenagers forced to engage in a fight to the death in a horrid tradition overseen by the malevolent ruler of Panem. Director Gary Ross’ cinematic triumph was a widely well-received tribute (no pun intended) to author Suzanne Collins’ first book in the Hunger Games trilogy.

The Hunger Games comes out on Blu-ray, DVD, On Demand and Digital Download on August 18. Check out the special features below.
