‘Hunger Games’ Blu-Ray Sneak Peek!

MTV News has a special treat for us in the form of an exclusive clip from the Blu-ray in which the principal castmembers, Josh Hutcherson, Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and Elizabeth Banks signed autographs for the children who served as extras for the emotional reaping scene in District 12.

The cast and crew endured extreme temperatures while filming the reaping, and in the clip, we see that the stars and the extras were set up in a tent to keep them in the shade. Everyone seemed in good spirits and the castmembers had no problem joking around with one another.

“It was the least we could do,” Lawrence said of the experience, during which we see her explain to a young extra that she is Katniss, after which Hutcherson introduces himself as Peeta. “It was so hot, and so many of them had driven for so many hours to be there. It was the least we could do to sign autographs and kind of thank everybody.”

“The Hunger Games” is available August 18 at 12:01 a.m. on a two-disc DVD (plus digital copy), a two-disc Blu-ray (plus digital copy), VOD and a digital download with three hours of previously unavailable bonus materials that include the eight-part documentary, “The World is Watching: Making of The Hunger Games,” a sit-down conversation with director Gary Ross. Numerous featurettes examine the global success of the books, the creation of the control room in the film and the filmmakers’ motivation behind creating new scenes that were not in the book, plus much more.
