Elizabeth Banks looks serious as Effie Trinket in the first Catching Fire character poster

Mar. 4, 2013by: Alex Maidy

I have a thing for Elizabeth Banks and have liked her in everything she has appeared in, but I just cannot get into her character from THE HUNGER GAMES series at all. I get that Effie Trinket is supposed to be this kooky character, but it just feels a little forced. Having not read the books, I don't know if her character is developed in THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE or if she is just more of the same.

Lionsgate is following up the previous teaser posters featuring Josh Hutcherson and Academy Award Winner Jennifer Lawrence with a series of Capitol Couture portraits. This first one features Banks in character looking off into the distance wearing an outfit that would not appear out of place in an issue of Vogue or Vanity Fair today. The site is teasing another poster soon which will probably feature Stanley Tucci's Caesar, the other character that I could not stand from THE HUNGER GAMES.

Plot:

THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a Victors Tour of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) a competition that could change Panem forever.

THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE opens in theaters on November 22, 2013.

ughhh

I just don't get this franchise. From what I gather is that most give it a pass because it's "not as bad as Twilight" (not my words btw). While I do agree that the first movie was better in some ways I still thought it was bad in itself. Terrible direction and VFX, mediocre to bad acting, laughable costumes, even the plot was silly. I just... I... I don't get it.

I'm sorry to all the fans, I assure you I won't be posting anything else bad about it, I just had to vent my frustration and confusion this one time.
