Elizabeth Banks, Liam Hemsworth, Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson attend the premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Monday, Nov. 18. Much like the Victory Tour that takes Katniss (Lawrence) and Peeta (Hutcherson) through the 12 Districts after their win in the deadly Games rockets them to celebrity status, the stars of Lionsgate's sequel have spent the past week traveling the world, with premiere stops in London, Berlin, Madrid, Rome and Paris.
The screams from the crowd who lined the red carpet — some of whom had been waiting downtown since the night before — were deafening when Lawrence finally arrived, showing off her new short haircut and wearing a dark gray Dior Haute Couture gown that featured a bodysuit under a textured, sheer overlay. She signed plenty of autographs, bringing some fans to tears.
Josh Hutcherson reprises his role as Peeta, the victor from District 12 who must return to the deadly Hunger Games.
Liam Hemsworth returns to play Gale, Katniss' friend from District 12. The crowd at the L.A. screening was a boisterous one, especially from the back half of the theater where most of the die-hard fans were sitting. They squealed, squirmed and shrieked at various points during the film, letting loose especially loud cries when Katniss would kiss one of her love interests.
Elizabeth Banks wore a long, bright orange Atelier Versace gown on the red carpet. She changed into a shorter-length dress for the screening and afterparty.

Liam Hemsworth, Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson pose for photos on the red carpet. After the screening, the stars and other moviegoers walked across the street to the upper parking lot, where a large tent would serve as the setting for the afterparty. However, the three stars did not attend the party because they would have to fly out to New York early in the morning for their final stop on the Victory tour, a New York media day and then screening on Wednesday. Additionally, Lawrence was feeling a bit sick, likely due to her taxing promotional schedule.
