The Hunger Games DVD will not play in my DVD player. This is the second Hunger Games DVD that hasn't worked. The menu plays. The behind the scenes plays and the movie previews play. However, when you select the movie the screen turns black and freezes. I can play other DVD's. Why is this?
The Hunger Games (DVD)
ITEM#: 14276804Based on the best-selling young-adult novel by author Suzanne Collins, THE HUNGER GAMES tells the dark tale of a 16-year-old girl named Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), who volunteers to compete in a vicious televised tournament in which 24 teenagers from a post-apocalyptic society fight to the death for the entertainment of the masses. In the future, North America is no more. In its place has risen Panem, a divided nation split into 12 districts. Every year, each district selects a teen of each gender (called "Tributes") to test their worth in a competition known as the Hunger Games, which are broadcast across the nation as entertainment, and to reinforce the government's total power. When her younger sister is selected as District 12's latest "Tribute," Katniss volunteers to take her place, and trains under hard-drinking former Hunger Games champion Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson) to sharpen her killer instincts. Now in order to survive the game and emerge the victor, this young combatant must put all of her skills to the ultimate test. Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth co-star.

Hello, lac251. I apologize for the inconvenience you've had. You will be contacted shortly by a member of customer care.
What does it mean by DVD/Digital Copy? Does it play in a regular DVD player? Thanks!
Digital Copy files based on existing files include only one audio track and no subtitles, although the DVD itself may have multiple audio tracks and multiple subtitles. Also, the quality is limited by the bitrate used to encode the file which is typically relatively low and not adjusted to the device to be transferred to. Yes, this will play in a regular DVD player.
