The Hunger Games Trilogy Catching Fire Premieres In London

Thanks to the success of The Hunger Games, Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence are becoming used to sort of adulation and full-on the attention they received at the premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The film’s world premiere in London Lawrence confessed that the movie’s success is “absolutely insane,” adding “it is wonderful, I just can't believe how many people are here.”

The movie’s full cast turned out in a wet and misery London for the premiere of the second Hunger Games movie which begins with Lawrence’s character, Katniss Everdeen, and Hutcherson’s Peeta Mellark home in District 12 after their victory in the Hunger Games. They expect to live in peace after winning the 74th Hunger Games but their peace is shattered by President Snow, portrayed by Donald Sutherland.

Although the rain was falling as they walked on the red carpet, both Lawrence and Hutcherson agreed that they really enjoyed taking on their roles one more time. “It is absolutely amazing,” Lawrence said of the sequel, “I love this character so I am enjoying her now in this movie and we're doing "Mockingjay" right now and I'm enjoying her even more.”

Hutcherson was equally complimentary about his part in the franchise. “I love Peeta and I think he is a character that really, when I first read the books I thought that his arc was really interesting. I thought that throughout the stories he really goes to cool and different places, something I had never done before so I am really happy to be coming back.”

A supporting appearance from Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee, the new games maker, and Stanley Tucci, who plays the game show host, will add something fresh to the second instalment of The Hunger Game series, which is released on November 21st in the UK.
