The Los Angeles premiere for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 has been scaled back after the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.
Press interviews on the red carpet (which was scheduled to be two hours) have been canceled. Instead, the stars of the film — including Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks and Josh Hutcherson — will likely only greet fans and take a few photos before heading into the screening in downtown Los Angeles. The afterparty is still scheduled to be held at the event deck at L.A. Live.
"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," said a statement from Lionsgate. "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."
The MTV livestream has also been canceled.
This won't affect the fans experience attending the event. In many ways, fans will likely have even more opportunities for cast signings and access since they won’t be doing press interviews.
