Two of us had the chance to go out to Los Angeles to go attend the ‘Catching Fire’ movie premiere here are my reflections and review of the weekend, with Heather’s to come later:
I actually was able to attend part of the Fan Camp on Saturday, even though my flight into LA was delayed, but I’m glad I made it! By the time I got there the actual camp had already been erects with tons of tents along the side of the Nokia Plaza, and fans were lined up to meet Willow Shields (Prim) and then later on Stephanie Leigh Schlund (Cashmere). All the screens on the plaza were showing mockingjays and people representing Kindle Fire were there taking photos of fans in front of a green screen. Here are a few pictures I was able to snap:
In terms of the premiere it was pretty amazing, even though I didn’t get to go to the red carpet. We had seats in the center section and many of the named tributes from the ‘Hunger Games’ were sitting a few rows behind us! It was cool that they were supporting the next film, even though they weren’t in it.
Check out this interview with Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Sam Claflin, and Jena Malone as they answer fan-submitted questions and some burning questions of their own, which range anywhere from a telepathically asked “What was your favorite part of shooting in Hawaii?” to the awkward “What issues did you have with your wetsuits?”
It’s just not a Jennifer interview if she isn’t talking about food and or pee. I thought it was cool to hear from the newcomers. Sam and Jena seem to fit right in, which is good considering this group will be together for two more films. And I had no idea Josh was half-cricket.
What were your favorite parts of the interview?
