Your Chance to Attend Catching Fire Premier, Red Carpet, and After Party!


Do you have a spare $10,000? Good, because that mean you can bid on an opportunity to attend the premier of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, walk the red carpet among stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth, and devour on Capitol dishes and refreshments at the after-party!

You will be personal guests of THE HUNGER GAMES producer Jon Kilik for the highly anticipated premiere!

Bid to win 2 tickets to the premiere of THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE in Los Angeles in November (date and location TBD). You and a friend will walk the red carpet before the movie, sit in assigned VIP seats for the premiere and attend the after-party!

Many of the cast will be at the premiere. The movie stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Hemsworth, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Lenny Kravitz, and Woody Harrelson.

Donated By: Jon Kilik and Lionsgate

In all likely hood you’ll be needing more than $10,000 spare change. May the odds (or in this case, wealth) be ever in your favor! Go to CharityBuzz for more information!

The Hunger Games World Premiere Weekend – Part 3


Getting ready was filled with anxiety and excitement.  We packed up our tents and exited Tent City at 6am, as requested by Nokia, so they could set up for the red carpet, which was to start at 5pm that day.  Luckily, I had met some friends who had a hotel room across the street and they were gracious enough to let me use their shower.  Showers are a good thing, especially when you plan on meeting several actors and take pictures with them.

My friends are I were scheduled to be in line by 3pm so they could situate us around the barriers that lined up the red carpet in a U-turn path for the actors.  The friends that had the hotel room were a mother and daughter team, Nancy and Taylor, that flew all the way from Baltimore, Maryland specifically for the world premiere.  You might have seen them in many pictures of the fans there because they were two of only three people that I’ve seen go in costume for the event.

I found another girl, Kacie, dressed up as a Capitol Citizen.  I’m pretty sure that the sequel will bring out more Capitol fashion on the next premiere.

Kacie even displayed Capitol makeup for the occasion.

Not to be left out, these girl scouts sported some signage of their own:


The line was buzzing, but it was only the beginning.

Lionsgate had handed out numbers (which they really should’ve done in order from the beginning on Sunday morning) that represented our place in the lineup along the barriers of the red carpet.  I was #34 getting into Tent City, and then ended up being #124 in the barrier lineup.  It was a slight issue that I hope will be rectified for the sequels.

After a bit of adjusting ourselves against the barrier, it was just a waiting game.  Some of us were actually on the second row of bleachers, but I shimmied my way into the first row, right against the railing.  Don’t ask me how, because I had two rows of people to get through.  One thing to know is that I did not shove my way in… well, not really.  We were all very courteous towards each other, and it paid off immensely.  The people in front of me actually wanted to switch with me since they wanted the higher vantage point.  I for one, wanted to get up there!

A couple of girls behind us on the bleachers sported these amazing fan-made purses with images of Peeta on both sides.  I actually wanted one myself after seeing how wonderful they looked:

Fans on one side of the barrier and the press on the other side of the barrier, we were both ready and waiting.  The actors and celebrities would be walking the black carpet that spaced the gap between us.  It was buzzing with excitement, more so from our side than the press side, obviously.  We were ready.

We Ask Fans About The Hunger Games

I had the chance to camp out at the Red Carpet Premiere for The Hunger Games in Los Angeles, CA.  On the day and night before the Premiere, I took the opportunity to ask some of our fellow fans a few questions about The Hunger Games.  (I’d like to apologize for the video and sound quality of the night interviews in advance

Worst Dressed at Hunger Games Premiere: Miley Cyrus?

We would never begin to call ourselves fashion experts, and we usually don’t like to judge people’s outfits unless we have something good to say about them (like … every single outfit Elizabeth Banks wore! She looked AMAZING)

However, we highly recommend that you check out this fashion review from

Specifically, what the hell was Miley Cyrus wearing???

We’re not saying she doesn’t look … attractive. We can absolutely see what Liam Hemsworth is going for (We’re sure she provided the “Last Song” of his premiere night!), but is that really appropriate for a premiere? Miley, take notes from Jennifer and Elizabeth!

Here’s an excerpt of what Victor’s Village had to say:

Dear Miley–
You’re not a Hunger Games actor, but we’ve always been on board the “Miley Cyrus is going to be around the fandom a lot so give her a chance” train. Then you show up to the premiere in a midriff-bearing lace bustier. The train has crashed. You have failed us.

See the full fashion review from Victor’s Village HERE!

Perhaps Miley is thinking:

“The next time we hang out, I will redeem myself…”

The Hunger Games World Premiere Weekend – Part 1

Meeting New Friends and Tent City

I’ve heard about it.  I’ve seen it.  I’ve had friends who’ve done it.  But not until March 11, 2012, have actually experienced it myself.  That’s right, folks!  I was at the red carpet U.S. premiere of The Hunger Games, and I’d like to share the events that happened from Saturday night to Monday night.

  • Getting there early
    Officially, the line to get into the designated “The Hob” area, which was the square of the Nokia Plaza, didn’t start until 6am, but those who have done this before knew better.   The official unofficial line started at around 11:30pm (give or take a couple of hours) across the street.  I did not sleep that night.
  • Meeting other fans
    I had to opportunity to meet up with some really great people that night that were planning on camping out as well – Flo (from Down with the Capitol), Denise (from Welcome to District12) and her mom Rhonda, & Nancy and her daughter Taylor.
  • We Are The Best Fans
    What was pretty amazing about our line and more specifically, the fans, was that once the line did move, everyone in it remained amazingly calm.  I say ‘amazingly calm’ because it was true.  There was some sounds of excitement as we knew we would all get in, but I definitely believe security was genuinely surprised that no one screamed, no one panicked, no one tried to speed past everyone in front of them.  You’d think we had all turned into avoxes!
  • Tent City
    I was the only one within the 6 of us that had brought a tent, everyone else just had their sleeping bags.  Not saying that you absolutely need a tent, but it certainly helped at night when the temperature dipped to the 40s and the breeze was biting.  I think I slept about 30 minutes that morning before festivities of that day began.

Check out Denise’s article on the weekend as well!

More Hunger Games Premiere News

 The cast of the Hunger Game is on fire for sure!  Last night’s movie premier is still the talk of the town, especially our Katniss, Jennifer Lawrence, who was just to die for in that gold dress!  Celebritology has compiled a nice synopsis of the evening along with some amazing pics of some of the cast!

After spending the day camping on the streets of Los Angeles, about 400 fans greeted the cast of “The Hunger Games” as the film celebrated its world premiere.

Anticipation and excitement for the film, opening March 23, is at “Twilight”-esque levels, as the Associated Press noted. “The passion of these fans is unlike anything I have ever been involved with,” Elizabeth Banks, who plays Effie Trinket, told the AP. She also credited author Suzanne Collins for creating “all this pandemonium.”

Cast member Isabelle Fuhrman counts herself among the many devotees to the series. The 15-year-old actress told Entertainment Tonight she’d “be across the street … screaming [her] head off” if she wasn’t in the movie.

At the center of the chaos is Jennifer Lawrence, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen. The Oscar nominated actress told Access Hollywood her first thought after getting out of the car at the premiere was, “Why is there so much screaming? I thought Tom Cruise or Oprah was there.”

Dressed in a dramatic, shiny gold gown, she asked MTV’s Josh Horowitz, “Was everybody disappointed that I wasn’t set on fire? God, that was a high, high bar to set. ‘Oh, darn it, she didn’t set herself on fire.’”(Katniss wears a dress that appears to be on fire in the book.)

Josh Hutcherson, who plays Peeta, told Access Hollywood it was “very exciting” to be at the premiere finally. But he added that the thought of his face projected on a big screen in front of thousands of people was “mildly terrifying.”
