After a never ending string of rumors, Lionsgate has finally confirmed the Digital HD and DVD release details for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 in the US.
Of course, they did it with a bit of trolling, because no promotion for this movie has come without any trolling.
THAT DAMN HANGING TREE REMIX! Is the beat-thumping dance music actually relevant to the story or its sales? Nope, it’s just Trollsgate at work!
“Fine, you know what? We’ll confirm the dates! But we’re going to put your through PAIN as we do so! MUAHAHAHAHA!”
Still, the dates are here!
We’ll admit, we’re still not up on the Digital HD trend. We use streaming services like On Demand and Netflix, but actually buying up our own collection of Digital HD movies to watch on various screens and devices? Naaaahhhh! It’s cheaper, but you usually just don’t get the same special feature goodness that we absolutely require.
These days it’s really tempting, though, because everything comes out on Digital HD about 2 weeks earlier. Two and a half weeks in this case! Ouch!
LG did release parties throughout the country for both The Hunger Games and Catching Fire, albeit not too many for either. They cover a few of the major city areas. People in the Northeast and middle America know not to get their hopes up. But still, we get to see all the fun coverage after the fact.
We have yet to hear about the important details: THE EDITIONS!
Each will come with its own special-ness. Target tends to rock the special features selection– and we’re hoping they do again so our collection kinda matches– while Best Buy will do its steelbook thing and Wal-Mart will pull off something (hopefully not an awkward triple feature with Part 1 only, because that would be horrendous).
Want in? You can pre-order now!
This is only the beginning of the DVD news, folks! It can only get better from here!
