'Mockingjay Part 2' premiere scaled back after Paris attacks

NEW YORK -- The Los Angeles premiere of "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2" has been scaled back after the deadly attacks in Paris.

Lionsgate said Sunday that it was pulling back on a glitzy red carpet at the film's Tuesday premiere at the LA Live complex. Press interviews will not be conducted, but the premiere will go on, the studio said, to honor the franchise's fans.

The final installment of the "Hunger Games" films, a young adult saga, opens in theaters Friday.
