Next month, Lionsgate Home Entertainment will bring The Hunger Games to Blu-ray. This adaptation of author Suzanne Collins' popular science-fiction novel focuses on the post-apocalyptic remnants of the United States as well as the Hunger Games, an event that pits young adults against one another in a fight to the death.
Academy Award-nominee Jennifer Lawrence (Winter's Bone) stars as Katniss Everdeen, a skilled Hunger Games contender who unwittingly comes to represent the rebellion protesting the corrupt Capitol that fosters the brutal competition.
Lionsgate's two-disc Blu-ray/Digital Copy combo pack presents the feature in its 2.39:1 original aspect ratio with a 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track. The disc also contains the following bonus supplements:
Eight-part The World is Watching: Making of The Hunger Games documentary covering the film from its pre-production process through its theatrical release

-jonny- "It's too easy to get voted down in these comment sections."
Don't take the minus votes too seriously. There's obviously an extremely lonely person living in his/her parent's basement with no windows that gets great joy from casting minus votes. I picture a young version of Scrooge with a permanent scowl for a face and an outlook on life similar to Eeyore. This vision makes me laugh every time I see a comment section with multiple minused comments.
I have to admit to never hearing of "The Hunger Games" prior to the movie coming out. This may have been an advantage for me because I found this movie really engaging, my favourite this year thus far, I'll put some pennies aside.
Now is this the definitive version of the movie or is this the version that will be replaced in the next 12 months by an extended version/director's cut/gift set with toys/16K remastering or some other variation designed to make our wallets slimmer?
