‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ stars present movie at Cannes Film Festival

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire stars Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and Sam Claflin joined director Francis Lawrence in France this weekend to present their movie at the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival.

Producers Jon Kilik and Nina Jacobson, along with Lionsgate Films Co-Chairmans Patrick Wachsberger and Rob Freidman were also present. The group took part in a photocall on Saturday — see images in the slideshow above.

Lionsgate will be presenting select scenes from Catching Fire at the Cannes Film Festival, but not the entire film — which hits theaters November 22nd in the U.S. Additionally, Lionsgate and CoverGirl will host a party celebrating their new partnership over the weekend at Cannes. The companies announced Friday a new collaboration which will include a “Capitol Collection” of CoverGirl cosmetics later this year. CoverGirl was also the product of choice for on-set makeup while filming Catching Fire.

Earlier this week, Lionsgate generated buzz around Catching Fire with displays and motion posters set up near the Cannes Film Festival site. The studio also released a new poster for the film on Tuesday, featuring Katniss standing atop a cliff, with wing-like clouds behind her and a quote from the Catching Fire book by Suzanne Collins.
