The The Hunger Games movie comes out on DVD tonight–12:01 A.M. on Saturday, August 18–to be exact, and fans in Atlanta can celebrate along with two of the cast members from the movie: Ethan Jamieson (“Tribute Boy – District 4”) and Ian Nelson (“Tribute Boy – District 3”) will appear at Walmart in Atlanta for a meet-and-greet/signing at the Walmart store located at 2795 Chastain Meadows Parkway, Marietta, GA 30066.
Walmart stores (24-hour stores only) nationwide are hosting more than 2,000 district parties featuring special giveaways (while supplies last), movie trivia and much more.
The two actors will be signing autographs starting at 11pm and you can bet there will be a crowd.
The last time Hunger Games actors were in town was before the movie release and it was CRAZY! You can see some of those posts here.
There’s also plenty to love in the DVD release–this is taken directly from the press release about tonight’s event:
“The 2-disc Blu-ray and 2-disc DVD arrive loaded with over three hours of extensive bonus materials including the comprehensive eight-part documentary, “The World is Watching: Making of The Hunger Games.” Other special features include a sit-down conversation with director Gary Ross as well as numerous featurettes that 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. The Blu-ray Disc set contains an additional exclusive feature, “Preparing for the Games: A Director’s Process,” which looks at the progression of taking three key scenes from the book to the screen. The Hunger Games Blu-ray Disc and DVD is a must-have film that is hailed as “exciting and thought-provoking in a way few adventure dramas ever are” (New York Daily News).”
