In a recent interview (with Variety) while accepting her award at the CinemaCon, Elizabeth Banks, who plays District 12 escort Effie Trinket, was able to chat about The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. According to her:
“No huge surprises. Effie has a heart that grows multiple sizes. We’re true to the book. Hopefully we’re delivering to the fans. That’s what they want.” Of course, “I spent a lot of time in the hair and makeup trailer, and every day we had that ‘ah-ha’ moment.”

In the first trailer Catching Fire, Effie is still tight up with “manners” and her costume is much more flamboyant. Can’t wait to see the rest of her outfit in November 22nd.
Anyway, congrats to Ms. Banks for the award!
