Lionsgate kicks off its official 12-week countdown to the release on Friday, May 25, when the Blu-ray and DVD will become available for pre-order. Entertainment Weekly is helping with the celebration by hosting the exclusive premiere of the trailer, embedded below:
The two-disc set will include over three hours of unreleased material, with features that provide insight into how the film was made, interviews with the cast and crew, and details about some of the story lines that differed from the book — like President Snow’s character (Donald Sutherland) and the role of the game maker (Wes Bentley). An eight-part documentary entitled The World is Watching: Making of The Hunger Games delves into the behind-the-scenes aspect of creating the film. The extras also include the full-length “Propaganda Film” shown during the Reaping.
