In it’s first weekend of release, The Hunger Games sold out in many stores and reached 3.8 million in DVD and Blu-ray units sold. With The Hunger Games still ranking at or near the top of the DVD sales chart in recent weeks, it’s lead over The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1 will likely grow even larger.
