On Saturday, Lionsgate dazzled the press and stars in attendance at Cannes by throwing a Capitol-worthy party to promote The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. Variety described the party as one that would make Jay Gatsby jealous, so you know there’s lots to oogle over!
You’ve probably seen the pin they were giving out by now, showing the Mockingjay Part 1 bird just like the first two pins. After guests were given a pin, they were taken by bus to a huge $340M Russian mansion.
Models were on hand to make sure guests felt like they were attending a Capitol party.
A huge Mockingjay poster was framed on the wall too!
Donald Sutherland looks a bit miffed to be standing near such a symbol of the rebellion…
Julianne Moore, on the other hand, looks happy!

Vulture gave a recount of what the cast was doing:
The cast had arrived long before the guests and spent their time sequestered in an area where their chairs seemed like actual thrones. Jennifer Lawrence had a memorable dancing moment almost-twerking over Josh Hutcherson, whom she’d backed into a corner and was looking up at her from a chair. They locked eyes and mouthed the words to “Work It.” Liam Hemsworth showed off some pretty good moves, too, before they all absconded to the Vanity Fair party to meet Justin Bieber.
Sam Claflin was in attendance with his wife Laura.
Here’s our Katniss!
