Teen acting and singing sensation Victoria Justice is promising to bring some fun to the Mall of America Saturday with the local premiere of her new film, the Halloween-themed comedy "Fun Size."

Justice, who starred in the Nickelodeon series "Victorious," will be at a meet-and-greet with fans along with "Fun Size" co-star Thomas Mann. Carly Rae Jepsen -- who has a song featured on the "Fun Size" soundtrack -- is scheduled to sing at the event, the Star Tribune reported.

Justice, who made a trip here last year with her "Victorious" cast mates, told me in an interview Friday that she couldn't wait to return to mall for another wild ride.

"It's so huge and amazing," Justice, 19, enthused. "I rode some rides at the theme park -- it was great."

The "Fun Size" gathering will mark the second time this month that the Twin Cities has played host to a high-profile movie event.

Comedy star Kevin James and MMA great Bas Rutten were at the mall earlier this month for the local debut of their action comedy "Here Comes the Boom."

Justice's event at the Mall of America isn't the only event that will have Minnesota teens screaming. Pop star Justin Bieber is also in Minneapolis Saturday for a concert at Target Center.
