Josh Hutcherson Talks Hunger Games Press Tour and Project Imagination

Josh 11

Josh presenting at the Academy Awards on February 22, 2015.

Josh Hutcherson is teaming up with Ron Howard and Canon to judge user-submitted movie trailers and then star in a movie based on the winning entry. “It’s a little scary for me because I have no idea what these submissions are going to be, so I signed on to play a character that I haven’t even seen yet,” he says in an interview with Yahoo!

What about the Hunger Games press tour as a movie? Josh discusses the idea:

Any experience from making The Hunger Games that would make a good movie?
There’s a lot of stories from shooting that would make cool movies, but maybe the press tour. The press tour is such a crazy experience, it’s really hard to explain to someone what that feels like, to hit a different city every day and have to do an entire press junket and premiere, every single day in different languages.

I see them for maybe one day, at a junket. I can’t imagine what the entire tour is like.
During the press tour for Catching Fire, we were in Europe and we did five cities or six days. Every day, you woke up and did press for six hours, with the round tables and the same questions a thousand times in a row and you try to make it sound interesting. But it’s painful. And then after that you go and get changed for the premiere, you do this crazy, super-high energy tiring thing where you see all the fans and the press on the red carpet. Then you hop on a plane, fly to the next city, go to sleep, and wake up and do it all again. So it’s a weird Groundhog Day type of thing, but in slightly different hotels with slightly different languages.

What are the questions you get the most?
Every press tour has had a different most-asked question. At the beginning, it was like, “So did you read the books?” And I was like, “Yeah, I definitely read the books.” Everyone always wants to hear a funny story from the filming process. The question I get the most is “Tell us something that no one else knows.” And you’re like, “I’m doing press, everybody knows these things!”

Would you watch about a movie the Hunger Game Press Tour? Because I would. I’d watch the heck out of that. What other Hunger Games related experiences do you think would make a good movie? Let us know in the comments.

Josh Hutcherson Part of New Experiment

Josh HutchersonJosh Hutcherson will star in and produce a Hollywood film based on a winning trailer submission to Canon’s Project Imagination: The Trailer. Staring on February 25th, 2015 people are invited to create and submit their own movie trailers. From these, Canon, Josh and Ron Howard will pick a winner to be made into the film.

“We’re trying to inspire people to tell their story, whether it’s a personal story about themselves or an idea that they have and to bring that to life,” Hutcherson told HuffPost Entertainment in an interview on Thursday. “We’re going to make a short film, and I’m actually going to act in it, which is crazy, because I have no idea what it’s going to be! I signed on for a character without knowing anything about the character,” he said, laughing. “But it’s exciting and a little scary.”

What would Josh’s submission be if he were creating his own trailer?

I think it would either be something centered around my dog because he’s my rock — he doesn’t talk very much, but you know, we could figure that part out — or it has to be something on one of the “Hunger Games” press tours because those things are insane and have a billion stories in there. One of those.

In the full interview, Josh also talks about the Oscars and mentions that he’d love to work with Joaquin Phoenix and Ralph Fiennes.

But how fun does the idea of making your own movie trailer sound? I kind of want to do it. Are any of you going to enter? Let us know in the comments.
