People Magazine Reveals Two Exclusive Pictures from ‘The Hunger Games’
People Magazine had teased about a certain exclusive that would be revealed within this week and now here it is.
People.com revealed two pictures from ‘The Hunger Games’ movie. The first pictures shows Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket and holding the microphone in which Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen appears to be about to say something. It seems that this picture is set during The Reaping scene back in District 12.
The second picture has Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen and Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne in the field.
Attached along with the article that included the stills was an interview with Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket.
“Effie is a very complicated woman,” says Banks, who previously worked with director Gary Ross on 2003’s Seabiscuit. “She’s a spinner. She spins everything into something positive. These kids have been pulled from their loved ones to compete on television in this horrible event in which they will likely lose their lives.”
Effie, she says, is “charged with making their last days before they’re in the Games as positive as possible, so that they go into the Games with a great attitude. And, of course, that seems crazy.”
At the center of the action is the heroine Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence), whose skills with a bow and arrow aid her survival.
“Katniss is so strong, so courageous, and when faced with this overly positive, super-enthusiastic Effie, [Jennifer] and I definitely had some great moments of conflict,” says Banks – who admits to one major drawback in playing the outrageously dressed character.
“For sure the biggest challenge of playing Effie was the shoes!” says Banks. “All of my shoes in the movie are completely amazing but highly uncomfortable. I said to Gary, ‘You better be shooting these shoes, because they’re killing me.’ ”
It appears more ‘The Hunger Games’ movie coverage can be found in this week’s issue of PEOPLE magazine which will hit stands in America on Friday.
