RUMOR: ‘Mockingjay Part 1′ US/UK DVD Release Date Revealed

DVD imageMockingjay Part 1 has barely been in theaters a month, and we are now hearing rumored dates as to the home entertainment release of the film!

According to DVD World USA, the domestic release of the Blu-ray/DVD is slated for Tuesday, February 24, 2015.  If this date is later confirmed by Lionsgate, this would be the first Tuesday release for a film in the series.  The Hunger Games and Catching Fire were released on a Saturday and Friday respectively allowing for midnight release parties.  We are actually hoping this date changes to the 27th or 28th, so this trend can continue.

If you live in the UK you’ll have to wait a bit longer to own a copy of the film, according to iTunes UK, Mockingjay Part 1 is set to debut digitally (and we assume physically too) on March 16, 2015.

Neither of these dates has been confirmed by Lionsgate and should be considered a RUMOR for now.  We have reached out to Lionsgate for comment on this news and we’ll update you if we hear anything back.

In the meantime you can pre-order the film at various different outlets.  Check out our post here for preliminary information on some of the versions in the US.

Thanks to Quarter Quell for the tip on the dates!

Madame Tussauds Debuts Katniss Everdeen Wax Figures in New York and Los Angeles

Earlier we reported that Madame Tussauds London revealed a Katniss Everdeen wax figure.  Soon after the reveal, they also announced that figures would be debuting at their New York and Los Angeles attractions.  Now we have learned exactly what those figures are like.

The wax figure in Los Angeles is the same as London’s with Katniss dressed in her winter outfit as seen in the beginning of Catching Fire.  The figure in New York depicts Katniss in her arena outfit from The Hunger Games.  Check out some photos of the figures at both US locations.

Katniss Everdeen Wax Figures Coming Soon!

wax

It can be difficult to meet Jennifer Lawrence dressed up as Katniss, but fans who would love to get a pic with Katniss herself might soon have an opportunity! Madame Tussauds, famous for creating wax likenesses of famous figures, has just announced that wax versions of Katniss will be coming soon.

We can reveal that Katniss Everdeen, protagonist of the worldwide phenomenon, The Hunger Games franchise, will become the newest figure here at Madame Tussauds London this month following the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1.

We are going to launch three wax likenesses of Katniss, portrayed by Academy Award® winner Jennifer Lawrence, worldwide. The figure will feature in an immersive setting here in London, as well as at our New York and Hollywood attractions.

The figure here in London will be portrayed in Katniss’ hunting outfit, which she wears in the second installment of the franchise, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Teamed with her iconic brown leather hunting jacket, are dark charcoal trousers, knee-length tie-up leather brown boots, plus brown leather quiver (arrow bag) and trademark bow. Her hair will by styled in her iconic braid.

With figures coming to London, New York, and Hollywood, will you be meeting Katniss soon? Be sure to head to Madame Tussauds to sign up for updates!
