9 hot pics from the Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiere

2013-11-12 08:40
London - Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth lit up the red carpet ahead of the world premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire held in the British capital's Odeon Leicester Square on Monday night.

Elizabeth Banks, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Jeffrey Wright, Willow Shields, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland and director Francis Lawrence also strolled the rain-soaked carpet outside the theatre.

But the cold November British weather failed to dampen the spirits of the frenzied crowd gathered outside to catch a glimpse of Katniss (Lawrence) and Peeta (Hutcherson) fighting their way through the crowds, the Hollywood Reporter reported.

Lawrence told Sky News she nearly didn't make it to the premiere in London after forgetting her passport.

The actress - who returns as Katniss Everdeen in the second film to be adapted from the Suzanne Collins novels - said she made an emergency dash across the US to pick up the document.

The Oscar winner had to follow 12 hours behind the rest of the cast - who flew into the UK in style on a private jet.

Here's 9 hot pics from the wet red carpet:

1) British singer Ellie Goulding went for the dark and moody look.

2) English actor Sam Claflin might look all innocent and dreamy on the red carpet but according to a source the actor, who plays fan favourite Finnick Odair in the film series, almost killed a co-star for real during the filming.

3) US actress Jena Malone looked flaming hot in her beautiful red dress. Loving the blonde hair!

4) Elizabeth Banks looked absolutely radiant in this neon yellow dress with a modern twist.

5) Hunky mister Liam Hemsworth could have done with a bit of a shave.

6) Josh Hutcherson's beautiful puppy face.

7) Jennifer Lawrence's dress looks pretty straight forward from the front...

8) But absolutely amazing from the back!

9) Love her hair!
