The final installment in Lionsgate Home Entertainment’s mega-hit film franchise series, The Hunger Games: Mockingjaw – Part 2, will be making its way to the home entertainment market place on Mar. 22 as DVD and Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack editions.
The ARR works out to 123 days and the box office haul was a very solid $280.3 million, which brings the domestic box office total for all four films in the series to a whopping $1.45 billion. That’s a monster number, so any concern that The Hunger Games has run its course — simply because it has burned through the trio of books that marked the series — is probably premature.
As to bonus features, director Francis Lawrence (Constantine, I Am Legend, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, etc.) is joined by producer Nina Jacobson (The Hunger Games film series and Diary of a Wimpy Kid series) for commentary, plus there are three production featurettes — “The Hunger Games: A Photographic Journey,” “Cinna’s Sketchbook: Secrets of the Mockingjay Armor” and “Panem on Display: The Hunger Games: The Exhibition.”
Exclusive to the Blu-ray SKU are the eight-part “documentary” titled “Pawns No More: Making The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” and the additional featurette, “Jet to the Set.”
Also slated for release on Mar. 22 are DVD and Blu-ray collections of all four films in The Hunger Games series.
Bonus goodies here include a dozen never-before-seen deleted scenes from The Hunger Games, a half-dozen deleted scenes from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, nine more from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 and a pair of newly-created featurettes — “Picturing Panem” and “Capitol Cuisine.” All previously released bonus features are also included in these complete collections on DVD and Blu-ray.
