'Hunger Games' DVD Comes Out Saturday, Advanced Holds at Library Pass 160
Walmart will also get in on the excitement by hosting midnight release parties Aug. 17 at stores in Clinton, Shelby and Chesterfield townships.
The Hunger Games DVD isn't scheduled to be released until tomorrow, but more than 150 Clinton-Macomb Public Library patrons have already placed holds on one of the library's eight copies.
There's no telling how well the DVD will sell, but having broken several records during its opening weekend in North America, the odds are in the film's favor.
If you find yourself unable to wait for your copy from the library, Walmart stores are selling the film at midnight, hosting midnight release parties across the country, including the stores in Clinton, Shelby and Chesterfield townships.
Starting at 11 p.m., Walmart says its parties will feature exclusive content airing in-store, movie trivia and more. Fans who purchase the DVD at midnight will also receive a special pack of collectible The Hunger Games trading cards, with random packs including autographed cards from one of the cast members including Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson. This offer will be available while supplies last.
The following stores will be hosting midnight release parties:
18400 Hall Rd
Clinton Township, MI 48038
Phone: (586) 263-7196
45400 Marketplace Blvd
Chesterfield, MI 48051

The Macomb Township Blockbuster will also host a party from 9 p.m. to midnight, featuring a screening of the film, "survival food" and trivia contests with prizes.
But if you don't mind waiting several weeks for the DVD to become available at the library, you can place your hold online with your library card.
