Hunger Games fans have a lot to celebrate this week during Comic-Con. While the books were already a huge phenomenon before they hit theaters in movie form, history has shown that a franchise as books doesn't always equate to a franchise on the screen (Eragon, Lemony Snicket, The Golden Compass...). With the first Hunger Games having raked in around $641 million worldwide, Hunger Games fans can relax and watch the series by Suzanne Collins settle in as the latest youth-skewing ongoing franchise, following in the footsteps of Harry Potter and Twilight. With Hunger Games set to release on August 18th, last night Lionsgate premiered a clip from the special features showing how director Gary Ross and company put together a scene where Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) hauls ass through a burning forest. Now you HG fans who couldn't make it so San Diego this year can watch it below. Props to Ross for not wussing out and using CGI fire.
The Hunger Games will be released on Blu-ray, DVD On Demand, and Digital Download on August 18, 2012 at 12:01 A.M.
