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:

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
