Words: Aminah Mughal, Subeditor: Alice Marshall
Stars gathered last night for the last of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 in Leicester Square. Jennifer Lawrence who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen wowed along side her co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson. 25-year-old Lawrence said ‘it was the perfect ending, very emotional and satisfying.’ The final instalment of the franchise comes after the previous three films have made more than $2billion worldwide, over the past three years.
Fans had been camping outside the Odeon Cinema in Leicester Square two days prior to the premiere that took place on Thursday 5th of November. The English weather did not seem to interfere with their dedication, with the non stop rain. As it was Guy Fawkes (or bonfire night) there were a display of fireworks for the cast and fans to enjoy.
But it was in fact Sam Claflin and his wife, actress Laura Haddock who stole the show. By announcing they are expecting their first child. The couple were posing in awe with Laura’s baby bump, staring at each other with admiration, as they couldn’t contain their excitement . Sam who is 29-years-old married his 30-year-old Inbetweener star Laura in 2013. After dating for 2 years.
The cast took to recreate the epic 2015 Oscar selfie, with the whole cast on the red carpet appearing in the image. Sam Claflin took the selfie (famously taken by Bradley Cooper at the Oscars ceremony.) Along side Jennifer, Liam and Josh. Including Julliane Moore, Stanley Tucci, Natalie Dormer, Elizabeth Banks, Donald Sutherland and Woody Harrelson. Although, cutting out 23-year-old Josh Hutcherson who was not in frame.
Mockingjay Part 2 is out for cinema release on the 20 November.
