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.
