NEW YORK -- New York City rolled out the red carpet for the star-studded premiere of the final chapter in the massively popular movie franchise, "The Hunger Games."

Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Julianne Moore were all in attendance at Wednesday night's premiere on the Upper West Side.

Series star Jennifer Lawrence reflected on what it means to see the end of the saga of her character, Katniss Everdeen.

"It's so important for us to all realize that change is in us," she said. "Everybody always thinks 'Well I'm, it's not going to make a difference. It's just me.' And she was one single that inspired a nation."
