Tonight, Lionsgate held a glittering celebration of THE HUNGER GAMES: THE BALLAD OF SONGBIRDS & SNAKES, at the historic Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
Fans lined Hollywood Boulevard, waiting to catch a glimpse of the film’s cast and filmmakers as they walked the red carpet. Cast in attendance included stars Tom Blyth, Rachel Zegler, Peter Dinklage, Jason Schwartzman, Hunter Schafer, Josh Andrés Rivera and Viola Davis.
Director Francis Lawrence, Producers Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson were joined by Writer Michael Arndt, Production Designer Uli Hanisch, Costume Designer Trish Summerville, and Cinematographer Jo Willems. Also in attendance to celebrate were author Suzanne Collins and singer-songwriter Olivia Rodrigo, who wrote and performed the song “Can’t Catch Me Now” which is featured in the film.
A special livestream and Q&A was hosted on the red carpet by Naz Perez, who interviewed the film’s stars and special guests, which was also simulcast to 10 other cities across the US. An enthusiastic audience cheered for the cast and filmmakers as they entered the theater to watch the film in the world’s largest IMAX auditorium, to do a special introduction for guests.
