Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games Blu-ray and DVD combo release has finally managed to leapfrog The Avengers in pre-order sales at Amazon.com.
Marvel’s The Avengers had been enjoying a consistent stay above The Hunger Games on Amazon’s Blu-ray bestsellers chart since it first went up for pre-order. Only deep discount sale items were able to knock The Avengers out of the top spot.
Now that The Hunger Games is just over two weeks away from its August 18 release, and archery is on display at the Olympics, interest in The Hunger Games Blu-ray and DVD release is picking up steam. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if it managed to stay in the top spot right up into its release day. Once its out, the one-month countdown to The Avengers debut will be underway.

The Hunger Games is directed by Gary Ross and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth. Production on the sequel, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, gets underway this month.
