It was their first stop of the Hunger Games mall tour yesterday and let me just say that the fans definitely showed up in droves! We are hearing that over 1000 fans showed up to meet the cast of the movie that is set to be released at the end of this month.
I hope stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth are prepared for the big time. People are already booking their tickets to see this flick, the first of a trilogy that is going to make this cast one of the most famous in history.
Of the upcoming craziness, Lawrence recently told Glamour magazine, “I feel like I am in the eye of the hurricane right now. It’s daunting. I knew that as soon as I said “yes,” my life would change and I walked around thinking “It’s not too late, I could still go back and do indies. I haven’t said “yes” yet, it’s not too late.”
But she is happy that she did take on the role of Katniss. She added, “I love this story and if I had said no, I would regret it every day.”
As for Hemsworth, who plays Gale, told Moviefone about his role in the flick saying, “Gale is a very strong person inside and out. He’s constantly standing up for what he believes in and trying to stay true to himself and not giving into this evil power. I’ve always been taught to be true to myself and stand up for what I believe in.”
And Hutcherson is just as excited about the movie saying, “I really, truly, love it. I’m bad about being able to say that too. Which says a lot. It tells the story perfectly and the acting amazes me. Jennifer, Liam, Woody, Elizabeth, Lenny, Donald, EVERYONE, was fantastic, and called the film’s director Gary Ross a genius.”
I hope he has hired on an honest accountant and has surrounded himself with good people! It’s on!
