Jennifer Lawrence, Julianne Moore, Josh Hutcherson and the rest of the cast all hit the red carpet in glamorous outfits for the Los Angeles premiere of “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1″ on 17th Nov. The film is the first of a 2-part final chapter of the popular franchise, which is based on the bestselling books by Suzanne Collins.
According to reports, the films have so far grossed US$1.6 billion (S$2.08 billion) worldwide. But many of the stars are unwilling to say goodbye to Katniss Everdeen and “The Hunger Games” series.
Actress Elizabeth Banks, who plays Effie Trinket in the series, said to Reuters,“We have another year, we get to have another reunion and it’s all going to be great. We’re not saying good bye for 12 more months.” Fellow cast member Sam Claflin, who reprises his role as Finnick Odair, said, “I don’t want this to end, I really don’t. Luckily we have another film to celebrate next year collectively.”
“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1” follows protagonist Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence, as she plans an all-out war against the oligarch President Snow. Although the plot and tone of the series is darker, Jennifer Lawrence told Reuters that she does not think the series would lose viewers.
