Happy Hunger Games! Vol. 1, Issue 51

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is burning up the charts! THG:CF has sold nearly $3.9 million copies of DVD and Blu-Ray in its first weekend of sale in North America alone!!

“This is a monster opening and a tremendous result for the second film in a franchise, underscoring the enormous momentum of The Hunger Games films,” said Ron Schwartz, Lionsgate President and General Manager of Home Entertainment Sales & Distribution.  “Opening weekend packaged media sales of Catching Fire were comparable to the first Hunger Games title released nearly two years ago while digital sales grew by nearly 40%.  With strong increases in digital revenue and Blu-Ray accounting for 50% of packaged media sales, the opening weekend performance is driving significant margin growth and is a testament to the strength of the franchise.” (x)

New BTS pics were released this past week via Cinema Blend! Loving Effie’s outfit here.

An extra released on DVDs this past week is this scene of Katniss coming home from the games greeting her mother & sister.

“Pack everything you can,” she whispers urgently to her sister Primrose (Willow Shields) mid-embrace. “We’re leaving.”  Watch it here.
