Hunger Games: Catching Fire DVD release date confirmed
'Hunger Games: Catching Fire'

Fans of the 'Hunger Games' series have been waiting some time for Lionsgate to confirm the release date for the home versions of 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire'. The second movie in the 'Hunger Games' franchise was a big hit at the box office, and is sure to do pretty well on DVD as well.

Well, you don't have too much longer to wait in order to be able to get your hands on a copy because 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' will be available to watch from the comfort of your own home from 17th March 2014. Naturally enough, the blockbuster movie is being released in a variety of different formats. In addition to the DVD release it will be possible to purchase the film via Digital HD, Video on Demand and Pay-Per-View, with the movie expected to show up on both the PS4 and Xbox One platform in due course too. The Blu-ray Combo Pack release also looks particularly attractive and will surely appeal to many 'Hunger Games' aficionados.

'Catching Fire' has been a massive success at the box office, with the film performing particularly well in the United States. The second 'Hunger Games' movie in the four film quadrilogy topped the box office for 2013 in the US, grossing more than $420 million. This made it the first film with a female lead to top the annual box office rating sin the US for half a century.

Bonus features in the Blu-ray version of the release include a 9-part feature length documentary about the making of the movie, entitled 'Surviving the Game: Making Catching Fire', which is sure to be particularly intriguing. It should be noted by 'Hunger Games' fans that this doesn't comprise part of the DVD release.

There is also a full audio commentary which has been recorded by the director of the movie Francis Lawrence and the producer Nina Jacobson. There will also be a raft of deleted scenes available on the disk, and a sneak preview of the forthcoming movie 'Divergent', which seems to have thematic similarities with the 'Hunger Games' series.

While the third 'Hunger Games' movie, 'Mockingjay: Part I' will not be released until November this year, the forthcoming release of the 'Catching Fire' DVD should satiate their appetite for the time being. Shooting for 'Mockingjay' is currently ongoing in Georgia, United States.
