Need distraction from Election Day 2016? “Hunger Games” released to 4K UHD Blu-ray
Stephan Jukic – November 8, 2016
If you want to feel good knowing that things could be even worse than they are with today’s possible U.S election results in the race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, all you need to do is pick up a copy of “The Hunger Games” movie franchise on 4K ultra HD Blu-ray disc for a taste of a much more dystopian world. All of the movies in the series have been released on 4K UHD Blu-ray as of today.
Suzanne Collins, the author of the books which inspired the extremely popular movie franchise with the same name has already picked up a YA Literature award for her portrayal of a post-Civil War America divided up into several districts that are ruled over by one central district called The Capitol, which demands an annual tribute of one boy and one girl from each district for a giant fighting match to the death. The novel and movie stories especially focus on the life of one particular selected girl named Katniss Everdeen, from a coal mining district, who enters the death match voluntarily in an effort to save her younger sister who was selected through an involuntary lottery as one of the annual contenders. From there Katniss will go on to become an unlikely hero of the Hunger Games but perhaps at a terrible cost.
Enjoying all this thrilling adventure, and a fairly hefty dose of violence that goes along with it is now possible in full 4K ultra HD resolution with all the color and contrast enhancement beauty of high dynamic range as well thanks to today’s 4K Blu-ray release of The Hunger Games movies. The new BD disc movie stars Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, Josh Hutchinson as Peeta Mellark and acting legend Donald Sutherland.
Owners of full HDR 4K TVs or home theater projectors will be able to get the most out of this unique science fiction franchise release due to the built-in HDR10 formatting of all 4K Blu-ray disc movies sold today. The HDR won’t work on non-HDR 4K TVs but for those who do have a high dynamic range display, the difference in realism, color and contrast quality is stunning enough to make almost any viewer forget about the trauma of the 2016 elections, at least for a little while.
Amazon.com is selling the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray movies in the Hunger Games franchise for $16.96 each.
