Stars of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” stepped out in London on Monday for the film’s world premiere, as fans count down the days until the much-anticipated sequel hits theaters.

Jennifer Lawrence (and her newly-short hair) walked the red carpet in a white Dior gown with a multicolored skirt, alongside co-stars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth.

They were joined by Elizabeth Banks (in a yellow Jason Wu gown), Stanley Tucci, director Francis Lawrence and franchise newcomers Sam Claflin, Jena Malone and Jeffrey Wright.

In “Catching Fire,” based on the second book in Suzanne Collins’ bestselling trilogy, Katniss (Lawrence) and Peeta (Hutcherson) are forced to enter the arena once again, facing off against victors of other previous Hunger Games.

“She’s a warrior and a fighter... I love playing Katniss,” Lawrence said on the red carpet.

The film will have a Los Angeles premiere next week on Nov. 18, before arriving in theaters on Nov. 22.
