The Cast Of ‘The Hunger Games’ Meets & Greets Fans In SoCal


We are just over 2 weeks away from the theatrical premiere of the big screen adaptation of The Hunger Games and anticipation for the film’s release is quickly hitting a fever pitch. In order to keep the hype very much alive, Lionsgate is sending castmembers from The Hunger Games on a cross country mall tour here in the US so that fans can get up close and personal with the actors who will bring the Hunger Games characters to life on the big screen. Yesterday, the 3 lead Hunger Games actors — Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth — were on hand at the Microsoft Store at the Westfield Century City Mall here in SoCal to meet with fans. Click below to see some photos. Additionally, check out the cover of this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine which features none other than THE hottest film that has yet to open in theaters — The Hunger Games.

Man. It would’ve been GREAT to attend this event yesterday but as I understand it, promoters underestimated the number of fans that wanted to attend and I hear it was sheer MADNESS. These photos are great tho … it looks like yesterday’s event was really fun. The California event may be over but the cast of The Hunger Games has just begun their US mall tour … here are the upcoming dates for future events where fans will be able to meet and greet their fave Hunger Games actors:

Additionally, The Hunger Games is featured on the cover of this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine, here is the coverphoto:

I’ve been able to peruse this issue and folks, it’s a must read. This issue gives a lot of great Hunger Games info without being too spoilery. I really liked the article on what you WON’T see in the film adaptation of The Hunger Games. Like all films that are sourced from books, changes have to be made … this issue of EW clues you in to the changes which, I personally feel, aren’t too bad.

We are SO CLOSE to the release of The Hunger Games! AHHHHHH!!! So close!!

    Didn’t the same thing happen with the Twilight Hot Topic tour? The promoters underestimate and it ends up in sheer craziness? You’d think these promoters would start realizing the tween/teen fanbase power behind these phenomenons.

    I plan on attending the event at the Mall of America! I’ll be sure to report back with any fun news!!

    And I agree, all of the changes so far don’t bother me. I see why all of them were necessary. I also can’t wait to see what is happening at the Capitol during the games! That will be a great insight into the games!

    Really sad they cut the people whose tongues were cut off. A really interesting part of the story

    • @Jenilee — Yes, it’s a bummer about the Avoxes as well … but maybe they will feature more prominently in the following films? I hope so, at least.

    • ClaireMichelle

      At least the avoxes are still in the movie, just not discussed. Then we can have plenty of these moments that those who have read the books can appreciate:

      I hope so!!
