Happy Hunger Games! Vol. 1, Issue 50

Tomorrow is the big day! The Hunger Games: Catching Fire DVD will finally be in hot in your hands! But where are the best release parties? Which version of the DVDs has the best extras and goodies? Lionsgate has amazing things planned for the release of The Hunger Games: Catching FireDVD/Blu-Ray.

At 12am on March 7, more than 2,000 Walmart stores will celebrate the release The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD with special giveaways. The first 50 fans to purchase the movie in-stores will receive a limited edition poster that is inspired by the artist Kris Kuksi. I am in love with this poster. I definitely would love to have one my wall. It’s so unique among film posters and just a beautiful piece of art to behold:
