Though The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hit theaters only two weeks ago, details are already surfacing about the home entertainment release.
Amazon U.K. has listed a Catching Fire DVD and Blu-ray “Deluxe Edition” set which includes 130 minutes of bonus material plus 45 minutes of bonus content exclusive to the deluxe version.
This unique edition features both Hunger Games films on DVD/Blu-ray as well as Catching Fire’s soundtrack and eight “art cards.”
At this time there are no details about what bonus footage is included in the roughly three hours of material, but we’d suspect behind-the-scenes looks and deleted scenes are likely possibilities.
The Hunger Games hit DVD/Blu-ray five months after its theatrical release, so you should expect Catching Fire to follow a similar release pattern by dropping around late-April 2014.
If special edition sets aren’t your style, a standard release for Catching Fire includes the film in DVD/Blu-ray, Ultraviolet, and still includes the 130 minutes of bonus footage.
Do keep in mind that these are all U.K. versions of the DVD/Blu-ray, so those in America and other countries should wait for more details before pre-ordering any set. Given the popularity of the franchise, some outlets may have special versions of their own with a variety of exclusive material and physical goods.
Catching Fire is directed by Francis Lawrence and opened in theaters worldwide in November. The film stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth. All stars and some crew members are expected to make appearances on the DVD/Blu-ray to talk about the making of the movie.
