'Hunger Games' that is
It was gals vs. guys at the European preem of Lionsgate’s “The Hunger Games” on March 14.Stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Elizabeth Banks, as well as producer Nina Jacobson, navigated the red carpet at London’s O2 Arena. Asked about survival skills the women opted to fight and the men to flee. But Hemsworth said: “I’m a pretty fast runner. So I’d probably run away.” But Banks said: “I would fight really scrappy. I would use everything in my power, you know, I would bite, and I would claw and scratch and pull hair.” Earlier in the week, the pic preemed at Hollywood’s L.A. Live, where Jacobson said she experienced a feeling of deja vu. “This level of excitement and anticipation take me back to the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ premieres when I was at Disney.” Director Gary Ross offered effusive thanks to the cast and Lawrence — “I thank God for her every day” — he said.
