The Welcome To District 12 duo (that's Courtney & Tiffany for those who don't know) got invited to Lionsgate's The Hunger Games Blu-Ray/DVD features fansite screening!
Naturally both of us were very excited and bursting to tell you all once we found out what we would be doing. The day started off with getting our spiffy name tags, complete with our site URLs so we knew where everyone is from. Luckily we've met most of the other fan site runners already. Along with the two of us, in attendance were Aldrin and Arianna from Down with the Capitol, Amie from HGGirlOnFire, Erin from TheHungerGamesMovies.net, and Beth from Mockingjay.net (so sorry if we missed someone!) Even Kara Warner from MTV.com was there!

We checked out all the Blu-Ray/DVD box sets that were laid out. We've got to say they're all pretty awesome and that it was really helpful to see them all together to compare them. So here we go readers, we present your awesome choices for Blu-Ray/DVDs:
Check out this BEAUTIFUL DVD box set! It's from Target and we are naming this A MUST BUY!! Not just because it's the most aesthetically pleasing, but because this has a bunch of extra features aside from the one the DVD has. You will be able to enjoy a special look at the tributes we've come to know and love: The Tribute Diaries.
Note: There will also be extra special features if you purchase the film on iTunes!

Then we were ushered into the Lionsgate Screening Room where VP of Marketing TJ Moffet introduced the sneak peek to us. It was specially edited together for this event and featured our sites! They showed us several sections of the extras, including parts of the Target, Walmart and iTunes exclusives. We were all pretty impressed with what they had shown us and couldn't wait to get our hands on the full features!

Overall we had a blast! We loved what we saw at Lionsgate and cannot wait to watch all the features. We're very much into DVD special features so we're incredibly excited!
And look out for a full review of the features on Friday August 10!!!
