Hundreds of screaming fans are eagerly anticipating the Blu-ray/DVD release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on the March 7 midnight release. Lionsgate’s Home Entertainment has upped the ante and partnered with Walmarts across the nation to bring fans tributes from the 75th Annual Hunger Games. Cast members such as Willow Shields (Primrose Everdeen) and Lynn Cohen (Mags from District 4) from the newest movie will be visiting stores nationwide on Thursday, March 6 for the home video release. After the jump, find out if they will be visiting a Walmart near you.

With the focus on making the biggest, most celebrated franchise possible, it is sometimes hard to get fans to as excited about a home video release than it is for the theatrical release. While there are only three locations that will actually have cast members present, over 2,000 Walmarts across the country will be celebrating with special giveaways. Signings will start at 11 pm and go until 1 am in their respective time zones. Joining in on the event with Mags and Prim will be Brutus (Bruno Gunn) from District 2, and Cashmere (Leigh Schlund) from District 1.

I love that companies are willing to take the time to honor fans with events like this and show them that they are appreciated. While I will not be attending this midnight release, I remember attending midnight book and movie releases and how amazing it was to see fans dressed up as the characters and the events the places (i.e. bookstore/movie theater) held. Hopefully, fans will not be an old fart like me and make it out to this wonderful event.

About The Hunger Games: Catching Fire:

Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts.  Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire releases on Blu-ray Combo Pack (loaded with special features), DVD, Digital HD, Video on Demand and Pay-Per-View this Friday, March 7.
