Hunger Games: Are You Team Peeta or Team Gale?

The world premiere of The Hunger Games is just hours away – watch the live-streaming red carpet at 8:30 p.m. ET on! – and fans have been camped out for days in Los Angeles, ready to greet the much-anticipated movie’s stars.

But which of the two handsome leading men will get the loudest screams? In the movie and bestselling books, heroine Katniss Everdeen’s heart is torn between Gale (Liam Hemsworth), the rugged hunting partner who’s helped her survive in oppressed District 12, and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), the kindly son of a baker who becomes her competitor in the televised fight to the death.

Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Katniss, told Seventeen: “I think I was [Team] Gale until he started getting a little too trigger-happy. Or maybe first Peeta and then Gale or Gale, then Peeta? I went back and forth. I flip-flopped.”

So whose team are you on?
