StudioCanal to Release ‘District 1′ Edition of German Hunger Games DVD
Good news for all our German tributes! European distributor StudioCanal announced yesterday that to celebrate the release of Catching Fire, they will release a special 2-disc, “District One” edition of the German Hunger Games DVD, which will be released on October 17th. (Clever wordplay there: “District One” being the equivalent of a “luxury” edition).
It seems the release of this “steelbook” edition will only be in DVD, not Blu-ray, but it will include several cool extras, some of which I can recognize, for example, from the Walmart and Target special edition US releases:
- The making of The Hunger Games
- On the black carpet
- The fashion of Panem
- Stories from the tributes
- The Tribute Diaries
- The stunts of The Hunger Games
- The food in Panem
- Letters from the Rose Garden
- Propaganda film
- Trailer (German and English)
And extras that had not been included in their previous release:
- Preparation for the Games – A director at work
- A conversation with Gary Ross and Elvis Mitchell
- Game Maker: Suzanne Collins and the Hunger Games Phenomenon
- Controlling the Games
- The casting
- The weapons of the Arena
Not only that, but this special edition DVD will also include a free cinema ticket for Catching Fire! German fans, if you don’t own The Hunger Games on DVD yet, this is your chance. Remember, this DVD will start selling on October 17th, 2013.
