The cast will be signing posters and answering questions from the fans.
According to the Examiner, the main trio was asked what they liked best about the characters that they are playing at their first stop in Los Angeles.
Hutcherson who plays Peeta emphasized his characters beliefs in not being able to change the person that you are, no matter what situation.
Lawrence, who plays Katniss, explained that she loves the strengh, loyalty and bravery that her character posses. She says that she is someone she admires.
Hemsworth likes his character, Gale, because he is completely against the Hunger Games and tries to find a way to stop them.
The tour will also be making stops in Atlanta, Phoenix, Chicago, Dallas, Miami, Minneapolis, and Seattle.
The Hunger Games movie is based on a book by the same name. It is the first of the three book series.
