New 'Hunger Games:
Catching Fire' Capitol
Portrait Revealed—
First Up: Elizabeth
Banks as Effie Trinket


Nothing says status like a Capitol portrait.

A new photo has been revealed of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire star Elizabeth Banks, posing as her character Effie Trinket for the first of several official “Capitol Portraits” that will tease the series’ second installment.

Wearing a large, frilly red dress made up of many layers and paired with matching shoes, the star sits regally in a throne-like chair as she looks into the distance.

The striking photo of Elizabeth comes on the heels of new Catching Fire promo shots of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) preparing for their “Victory Tour”.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will hit theatres on Nov. 21— an eagerly anticipated sequel to The Hunger Games, which grossed $686 million dollars in 2012.
