The long wait is almost over as the cast of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" attended the L.A. Premiere at the Nokia Theatre on Monday (November 18) ahead of this Friday's nationwide release.

Looking gorgeous on the red carpet was Jennifer Lawrence, who got all dolled-up for the event as she posed with her handsome costars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson.

Also on hand to catch all the action were Ashlee Simpson with her man Evan Ross, Kylie Jenner, Sarah Hyland and Bella Thorne.

In the highly-anticipated sequel, Katniss and Peeta embark on a Victor's Tour after winning the 74th Hunger Games as a rebellion begins brewing in the Districts of Panem.

Joining the popular trio in the film this time around are Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, and Lenny Kravitz.
