Check Out a Special Feature Clip from the The Hunger Games DVD
Lionsgate presented this behind-the-scenes clip, which is part of the bonus features on The Hunger Games DVD/Blu-ray extra features, at the 2012 San Diego Comic Con. The new video shows Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen leaping from a tree and then trying to outrun a wall of fire that erupts all around her. CG flames wouldn’t have cut it, so director Gary Ross opted to have his film’s star actually run by the fire – and this clip shows what Lawrence went through to film the scene.
The Hunger Games arrives on Blu-ray, DVD, On Demand, and Digital Download on August 18, 2012 at 12:01am.
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains. Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
