Hunger Games Premiere: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Miley Cyrus (PHOTOS)

The Hunger Games is not out until next Friday (23 March) in the UK, but already interest is heating up in the teen action blockbuster.

The world premiere of the film took place in Los Angeles last night, with stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth walking the black carpet to promote the big-screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins's best-selling novel.

Lawrence might have been forgiven for thinking she would be the star of the night, in a shimmering gold dress with revealing cut-aways.

But she had reckoned without the star power of Hemsworth's girlfriend Miley Cyrus, who stole much of the attention in a strappy, almost beachy, top and lacey see-through skirt.

If it means even more people hear about the film, Lawrence probably won't be too upset, and her own star has been on the rise since she appeared in Winter's Bone and X Men: First Class.

The Descendants star Shailene Woodley, Kelly Osbourne and Twilight's Peter Facinelli also attended.
