A Look Back At The First Hunger Games Red Carpet Premiere

Catching Fire Poster

The Los Angeles red carpet premiere of Hunger Games: Catching Fire is less than a week away! In a few days, fans will start setting up their campsites outside the Nokia Theater in L.A. Live, a familiar scenario for Twihards, and a totally new experience for Hunger Games fanatics. The red carpet premiere for the first Hunger Games movie was held last March 12, 2012. I was lucky to be part of it and it was, in fact, my first ever red carpet experience. There was no camping out whatsoever, I got there a few hours before the start of the arrivals and I still got in a pretty good spot.

Jennifer Lawrence Hunger Games

I didn’t know any of the main actors of the film, so I just kept taking pictures of whomever I saw who happened to be in fancy clothes. Jennifer Lawrence looked really pretty in that gold dress. Back then, she was just another actress to me. Now, she’s one of my favorite Hollywood celebrities. What a difference a year and a half makes!

And if you’re like me who can’t make it to the event, you can watch the live stream on Yahoo! on Monday, November 18th at 9 PM ET/6 PM PT.

Happy Hunger Games and may the odds be in your favor!


Pitch Perfect Red Carpet Premiere

Pitch Perfect held its premiere on the 24th of September 2012 at Pacific’s Cinerama Dome in Sunset Blvd, LA. I had to choose between attending this premiere and Frankenweenie, which was held simultaneously just a few blocks away at the Grauman’s Thater. My childhood crush Winona Ryder is on the other side, so as Tim Burton but still, I had to chose this. Why?! FAT AMY was here!

A lot of fresh faces here folks. It’s nice to see these young men and women gracing the red carpet. I hope they all make it big here in Hollywood.

Problem for me when it comes to new faces though, is that it’s hard to caption haha! Now if anyone can help me name these beautiful ladies, I’d love you forever…

I’ll just call her Ms. Red Lips for now…

…and this one’s Ms. Beautiful Smile…

…here’s Madame Cool…

… there’s also a guy whose name I don’t know… I’ll call him Surfer Dude for now…

And now here are my favorite shots of the night.
