‘Mockingjay Part 2’ L.A. Premiere Cancels Interviews After Paris Attacks

Citing the Paris terrorist attacks, Lionsgate has decided against allowing interviews on the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” on Nov. 17 at the LA Live complex.

“Out of respect for the very recent events in Paris, we have decided to modify our red carpet and we will not conduct interviews at Monday’s ‘Mockingjay 2’ premiere,” Lionsgate said in a statement. “We will proceed with the rest of the event as planned in honor of the incredible fans who have always supported our films with such passion.”

Lionsgate held a premiere of the movie in Paris on Nov. 9, along with premieres in Berlin (Nov. 4), London (Nov. 5), Madrid (Nov. 10) and Beijing (Nov. 12). The key stars — Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson —  have been interviewed extensively.

It’s also planning a Nov. 18 premiere in New York before the film launches worldwide on Nov. 20.

Portions of the fourth and final “Hunger Games” film were shot in Paris, Berlin and Altanta. The three previous films have grossed over $2.3 billion in worldwide box office.
