Good deal for this pre-order. Next best £15 at HMV without the exclusive content!

If you want other Hunger Games Blu-ray exclusives:

Asda are doing the normal 2 Disc version but include a Mockingjay pendant for £17.97

HMV are doing an exclusive steelbook for £18.00.

Play have the normal 2 Disc with artcards for £15.49.

It looks like all DVD/Blu Rays will include the uncut 15 rated International version, which is fine by me!

In the cinema this was a 12. Now this is a 15. Does that mean this is the version before the cuts were made?

Yeah it was cut down by a few seconds and was digitally altered/darkened in some scenes. Full break down here:

so is this the version before the cuts?

DVD is 8 but its the 12 version it seems from the Sainsburys site.

Nice find anyway, too broke to own a blu ray player. :(

Differences in the BBFC ratings are normally caused by 1 of 2 things.

1. Cuts to the movie, this can be anything from whole scenes to just a couple of frames. In this case it was 7 seconds.
http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/movies/news/a370766/the-hunger-games-cuts-bloody-seven-seconds-to-get-12a-rating.html
2. If the film is right on the cut off point between 2 rating, the BBFC may bump in it up, as the DVD is more accessable than a visit to the cimema.

I would assume in this case they put the 7 seconds back in.
Most companies will try and drop the rating from 15 > 12 or 12 > PG, as this can greatly improve box office sales, dependent on what need to be cut / removed.

Just a metal case instead of a plastic one. Some have a more collectable value due to their limited runs and unique artwork.

Its a good film but as with everything not as good as the book. Everything is more rushed in the film as the story moves on very quickly. The romance angle between Katniss and Peeta is downplayed a bit. While Peeta being injured in the cave, in the book dominates chapters, but in the film is dealt with in about 5 minutes.

Still I enjoyed watching it

Pahahaha, they're calling the Blu-ray 'The Unseen Edition'? There's SEVEN SECONDS of additional footage. Is that what they're going to put on the back? "With 7 seconds of additional footage" DON'T MAKE ME LAUGH!!!

So what IS the code? A unique one or just "20OFFHUNGER" or something?

Edit: never mind, seen another thread about it; unique code. Poo. Just checked my HMV account settings and I'm down to receive emails from them, but I realise now I never get ANY. Just called them to ask if they can sort me out a code, but it'll be next week before they can get back to me. :|

Tesco is £ 15 with 250 CC points (use code HUNGER250) which could be worth between £ 2.50 and £ 10 in rewards

Plus probable £ 1.20 cashback

Thanks for the info. Think I'll rent it when it comes out.

I agree with jimwhite1978 - if you've read the book you'll enjoy the film, if only for sticking so rigidly to the meat of the story, but what you'll really miss is the detail. And possibly the oddest difference is how food and, well, hunger, is almost never referred to in the film. When you think of its significance in the book and how much everything they eat is detailed...well it would be like a Harry Potter film that didn't mention magic.

It felt like an eternity before sponsor would give them any antidote. Plus the dogs was suppose to resemble the dead tributes.

To speed through the book it still had quite alot of the book i'd say.

I know, being ill and reading those books was torture, it was all food food food, my tummy was going mad. Brilliant books tho.

Personally can't see what the big deal was with this film. Another fight for survival film and done fairly well but that was it for me. One touching bit with the black girl - no spoilers - but standard meat n potatoes film imo.

Ah, try reading the books, then everything would make a lot more sense.

All the build up to the games seemed pretty much perfect, but once the games begin everything was so quick and the romance is so brief, considering what a huge storyline it is throughout the 3 books, I was baffled as to why so little of it was shown

I also thought the reaping was not discussed enough(why certain people had more entries etc)

Thanks, i went for this deal. 8% cashback with topcashback plus about £7.50 in deals with that code and works out a great deal for the blu ray.

I thought it was a good adaption. They inevitably cut aspects out of the book out to fit into 2 hours but it managed to capture most of the themes and narrative structure of the book. My only real issue with the adaptation is how blatantly cut it was to get a 12a. Considering the scenes of the actual games, the book has some pretty graphic moments (skulls getting impaled with rocks, knife wounds and blood shed ect) but there is literally none of this in the film. In fact, I can't even remember if there is any visual blood. It's almost as if they play down the extremity of teenagers killing eachother, which to me, is what made the book so powerful. That said, it is a very good adaption. The Capitol is spot on and the cast is brilliant. This is why I am excited about this "uncut" version, it was a great film just needed more guts. I would recommend.

Of course the question now is do I go for this 3-disc slipcase or the HMV Steelbook?

Really? Is that all? 7 seconds made it go from a 12 to a 15. I can understand that happening with certain films like Temple of Doom but I find it hard to believe that 7 seconds would change The Hunger Games' rating

I agree that 7 seconds isn't exactly a great deal, but all the digital tinkering will be restored (blacking out blood etc...)

If we had the choice of which version to have, I know which one I'd pick!
