Being Elmo Comes to DVD and The Muppets "Feel the Hunger"

In lieu of a News Update this week (since there isn't all that much to update you on), we're pulling the two biggest stories and combining them for this one post. I know... I'm excited too.

First, the critically acclaimed, delightful, charming, beautiful, moving, and inspiration documentary about Kevin Clash, Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey is finally coming to DVD and digital download on April 3rd! It is currently available for live streaming on Netflix Instant, but how can you pass up buying a physical copy of this near-perfect film? You can already pre-order the DVD now on Amazon.com and we've already got an official list of bonus features straight from the press release for the DVD! The list of bonus features is below...
  • Some Thoughts from the Filmmakers
  • Sundance Premiere Q&A with Kevin Clash and the filmmakers
  • Tau performs in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
  • Interview with John Tartaglia
  • Documentary Trailer
I don't know about you, but I absolutely cannot wait to bring this DVD home. Being Elmo is truly wonderful and it deserves a spot in my DVD collection.

In other Muppet-films-coming-to-DVD-soon news, The Muppets Studio recently released yet another parody trailer this week, this time promoting The Muppets on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. The new trailer lampoons the popular book and movie The Hunger Games. For those of you wondering about the poorly-CGI'd plunger-and-arrow Gonzo is shooting, that was added because archery is a big feature of The Hunger Games. I think. Anyway... enjoy the awesome below!

I love the "Feel the Hunger" trailer... but I can't describe how glad I am that I don't have to do a trailer breakdown for it since we've all seen the movie already. It's the little things...
