How long does it usually take for a movie to come out on DVD?

I just came home from seeing The Hunger Games a second time, and I'm already counting down for Catching Fire. I want to get HG on DVD/Netflix/iTunes, but I'm not sure how long that exactly takes. I don't want exact, just usually.

Depends on how much work you put into a movie and how consistent you are in completing it. Some start a movie then wait a week to continue filming. Others waste no time and film every day. Movies that contain a lot of action and special effects require about 6 months or longer (years). However, if it is an average 2 hour movie, filming for 12-18 hours per day (that's realistic), you're looking at 14-20 days of shooting, factoring in times for reshoots, waiting for proper light, etc.

This doesn't help. He didn't ask for shooting time. He asked the time required for dvd release after the movie is released in theatres (which in my experience is 3-7 months, avg being 4 months)

It usually takes 3-6 months and why did you see the movie twice? It was to flashy and in your face :/ IMO it was raggedy

That's contingent on how well the movie does at the box office,the better it does the longer it will stay in the theatre prolonging its DVD release and naturally if a movie does poorly it will make it to DVD sooner.Hunger Games is doing rather well so it's gonna be a minute.

Odds are, Hunger Games won't come out on DVD until sometime around late October/Mid-November, just in time for the major Holiday rush. They will be looking to rake in the most $$$ possible.
