The Hunger Games now out on Blu-ray DVD is one of 2012’s most popular movies.  Based on the book with the same name, The Hunger Games is part one of a trilogy, which will have two movies for the finale just like the Twilight Saga (and until the most recent decision to move the Hobbit from two movies into three).

Set in a post-apocalyptic world of North America, every year the twelve districts of the nation of Panem sends a teenage boy and girl to participate in a brutal game, called The Hunger Games, to pay tribute to the Capital. Once a boy or girl reaches a certain age, they are entered into a lottery; and if picked, forced to play the game.
On this year, the 74th annual Hunger Games, Katniss Eberdeen (Jennifer Lawrence, X-Men: First Class) volunteers as tribute to avoid her young sister from being taken for the games. Katniss and her fellow District companion, Peeta Mellark (Bridge to Terabithia), then must travel to the Capital to be trained to fight and honor their District until only one teenager remains alive.
The cast is led by the charismatic Jennifer Lawrence who seems to be born to play the role of Katniss Eberdeen.  Lawrence skillfully displays Katniss’ emotional side, instead of making her into the next inline of one-dimensional female action stars. Along with co-stars Peeta Mellark, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Lenny Kravitz, and Donald Sutherland, the world of Panem plays a host to many talented actors of our time.

The Blu-ray transfer was excellent – the graininess of some scenes is evident but that was present in the theatrical release, and the sound mix is faithful to the theatre-mix.  The second disc includes special features including a copy of the Capitol Propaganda Film that is shown during the Reaping, in addition to numerous making of featurettes.  It also includes either an iTunes or Ultraviolet digital copy – a welcome change from other companies that only give you one choice.

For a limited time you can sell back your used Blu-ray copy of Hunger Games to for $11 or sell back your used DVD  for $10.   Sell them while they’re hot.
