It’s likely going to be one of the hottest releases of the year, and “The Hunger Games” has set an in-store date.

August 18th is the magical day when fans of the film and books can get their grubby little paws on both a DVD and a Blu-Ray version.

According to a report, "The two-disc set will include over three hours of unreleased material, with features that provide insight into how the film was made, interviews with the cast and crew, and details about some of the story lines that differed from the book -- like President Snow's character (Donald Sutherland) and the role of the game maker (Wes Bentley).”

“An eight-part documentary entitled The World is Watching: Making of The Hunger Games delves into the behind-the-scenes aspect of creating the film. The extras also include the full-length 'Propaganda Film' shown during the Reaping."
