The first stop on the eight city The Hunger Games U.S. Mall Tour took place on March 3, 2012 at Westfield Century City in Los Angeles, CA. The three main stars of the much-anticipated film – Liam Hemsworth, Jennifer Lawrence, and Josh Hutcherson – spent time signing autographs for fans, some of whom had waited outside the mall since the night of March 2nd in order to be one of the fans lucky enough to get to meet the cast. Hemsworth, Lawrence, and Hutcherson also took part in a Q&A with fans, answering a wide variety of questions including which character they’d like to be, if they had to chose a different character to play. The Hunger Games hits theaters on March 23, 2012.

Watch the video of screaming fans and the cast Q&A:

The Plot: Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
