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!


Gangster Squad Red Carpet Premiere

Gangster Squad Movie Poster

Just by looking at the movie poster and seeing all those names and faces, you can already tell that this premiere was going to be packed… and damn right it was! Also, by looking at the second name on that list, you can  tell that a lot of the people attending will be women. And yup,  the screams were deafening as Ryan Gosling arrived and signed for the fans.

 

 

Ohhhhhh. It was so nice to be face to face with Babyface Ryan!  It was just like looking in front of the mirror! Well, not really.

Ryan Gosling

He arrived earlier than the other big celebrities and it’s funny because I noticed the crowd somewhat got cut in half after he waved buh-bye to the them. It’s pretty obvious who they came here for, isn’t it? Ryan Gosling’s got the sex appeal not so many people can match, that’s for sure.

We haven’t even started yet! Let’s now take a look at the movie trailer of Gangster Squad:

 

 

Here’s the adorable Emma Stone.

A near-accident was witnessed as she was signing autograph for the fans. The barricade that separated her from the crowd almost fell towards her, good thing was that the security guys were fast enough to stop it. If they were just half a second late, that thing would have hurt Emma right away or even if it didn’t, there was no doubt that injuries will have been inflicted to some members of the crowd. Hooray for fast reflexes. Boo for poor quality control.

I  just finished having a movie marathon the other day, Ted and Saving Private Ryan were both included in it so I still pretty much have a Giovanni Ribisi overload in my brain and look who’s here! Giovanni Ribisi!

Giovanni Ribisi

I just love that face he was making. I’ll call that the Giovanni look from now on.

Michael Peña. I just met him a couple of months ago at the End of Watch premiere. Boy somebody’s been busy!

In the same premiere I also saw this guy, Danny Masterson.
