In the lead up to the release of the movie, The Hunger Games cast were fantastic with the fans, making time to sign autographs, heading out on Mall tours across the country and just generally, being amazing.
It seems that some of that will be included in the extra features of The Hunger Games DVD.
MTV has been able to include an exclusive clip in which Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Elizabeth Banks sign autographs for the children who served as extras in the reaping scene in District 12.
“This is Liam, he’s very handsome,” Banks says to an enthusiastic extra about her co-star seated next to her, as she signs an autograph.
“This is Elizabeth. She’s also very handsome,” Hemsworth adds with a smile on his face.
The cast and crew endured extreme temperatures while filming the reaping, and in the clip, we see that the stars and the extras were set up in a tent to keep them in the shade. Everyone seemed in good spirits and the castmembers had no problem joking around with one another.
“It was the least we could do,” Lawrence said of the experience, during which we see her explain to a young extra that she is Katniss, after which Hutcherson introduces himself as Peeta. “It was so hot, and so many of them had driven for so many hours to be there. It was the leastwe could do to sign autographs and kind of thank everybody.”
