It seems impossible that any franchise could eclipse the popularity of the Twilight Saga, but the producers behind the soon-to-debut Hunger Games are trying. The film, like Twilight, is an adaptation of a YA novel starring a young woman and a supporting cast of hunky young men. And like Twilight, the Hunger Games actors have been tapped for a promotional mall tour.
The fun kicks off at the Westfield Century City mall on Saturday, March 3rd where fans will be able to meet actors Gary Ross, Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth. Afterward, assorted cast members will travel to Atlanta, Phoenix, Chicago, Miami, Dallas, Minneapolis and Seattle.
