CONSUMERS ARE HUNGRY FOR HUNGER GAMES VIDEO

Home video sales for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire were blazing last week as the Lionsgate sci-fi thriller, which earned $424.11 million at the box office, got set to enjoy similar success at DVD and Blu-ray retailers as well. According to Nielsen VideoScan First Alert data, the movie came in well ahead of Fox’s 12 Years a Slave, the Oscar winner, which debuted in second place. Gravity, last week’s runner-up, slipped to third place, while last week’s champ, Thor: The Dark World, faded to fourth place. In fifth place was a combo pack of the original Hunger Games and Catching Fire. And in sixth place was the original stand-alone Hunger Games. Lionsgate, which does not impose a 28-day delay on big renters like Netflix and Redbox, also saw Catching Fire debut at No. 1 on Home Media magazine’s rental chart. Coming off that delay, Universal’s Dallas Buyers Club, was the second-most-rented movie of the week, followed by Thor: The Dark World in its second week, and Universal’s About Time and Fox’s Free Birds in their first week.
