The Hunger Games




the hunger games blurayThe Hunger Games continues its shock and awe campaign and has officially replaced Twilight and Harry Potter as the pre-teen/teen obsession of the hour.


Fans of The Hunger Games pilled into stores at midnight to get their little hands on a copy of the film on DVD and BluRay. 3.8 million units were sold in the first two days. Of the 3.8 million units sold, about 1.3 million of the “Hunger Games” discs were high-definition Blu-ray format.


“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1″ sold 3.2 million DVDs and Blu-rays on its first weekend, while “Eclipse” debuted to 2.7 million units in December, 2010. So, it would seem that Hunger Games fans now have some bragging rights.


However, “The Hunger Games” could not surpass “The Twilight Saga: New Moon,”which sold 4 million discs on its first weekend in March, 2010, when the DVD sales market was somewhat stronger.


The next face of will be the BluRay/DVD release of Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 Vs. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
