Let the games begin ... and lots of screams from teenagers, too.

Four cast members from the upcoming action film "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" will be appearing at the Mall of America for a fan event dubbed the "Victory Tour" next week, Lionsgate Films announced Monday.

Event organizers said Sam Clafin (Finnick Odair), Jena Malone (Johanna Mason), Meta Golding (Enobaria) and Bruno Gunn (Brutus) will sign autographs and participate in a fan question-and-answer session at the MOA rotunda Nov. 5.

An interactive fan experience is scheduled to take place between 2:30-4:30 p.m., and the fan Q&A begins at 5:30 p.m.

Fans are encouraged to bring canned goods that will be donated to a food drive organized by charity organizations Feeding America and the United Nations' World Food Programme.

Bloomington is among only a handful of cities on "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" Victory Tour. Other stops include Philadelphia, Miami and Houston.

The "Catching Fire" event comes about 18 months after stars including Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson came to the MOA to help celebrate the release of the first "Hunger Games" film.

"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" opens in theaters and on IMAX screens Nov. 22.
