Elizabeth Banks’ Effie Trinket Featured In Hunger Games Tie-In Ad

ON

We’ve seen Elizabeth Banks’ Effie Trinket before on both her The Hunger Games character poster and in a production still. Today we get another look at District 12’s pink-haired Chaperone as part of a merchandising tie-in with China Glaze nail polish. Check out the print ad below, featuring Banks in full makeup.

Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.

Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

The ensemble cast also includes Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Wes Bentley, Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson, Lenny Kravitz, Toby Jones, Donald Sutherland and many more and is scheduled for release on March 23, 2012.
