The Hunger Games Premiere
March 14, 2012 by staff
The Hunger Games Premiere, “The World Will Be Watching,” pronounces the tagline for “The Hunger Games,” in reference to the reality-show approach to the killing arena in the story’s post-apocalyptic future. But those words were definitely true in the present for the stars of the popular young adult novel’s upcoming adaptation, as talent like Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth walked the black carpet at a world premiere built for a blockbuster.
The event was held outside L.A. Live’s Nokia Theatre, the same place where fans had been screaming for their favorite vampires and werewolves four months earlier at the premiere of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn –- Part 1.” Monday night, in true “Twilight” fashion, the carpet was lined with fans holding aloft homemade posters bearing the names of their favorite stars.
“Jennifer, can I please have a hug?” read one. “Josh, you make my heart go Peeta-Pa*ter,” read another.
But though the movie’s stars are quick to call themselves fellow fans of the books, they’re not so eager to side with Team Peeta or Team Gale –- the two men fighting for the heart of lead character Katniss Everdeen, played by Lawrence.
“It’s so hard to choose. I can’t choose because I know them both so well,” said Dakota Hood, who plays a District 10 tribute. “I want to say Peeta, and I want to say Gale, so I’m just gonna leave you at that.”
