Check out the new poster of Elizabeth Banks' Effie Trinket, for Catching Fire (via Jezebel).

I don't have a lot to say about it, except that I always think of Mimi from "The Drew Carey Show," when I see Effie Trinket, and if they decide to extend The Hunger Games beyond the three books and well into the future, maybe they'll look to Kathy Kinney to reprise the role as the older Effie Trinket, who has perhaps given up on life.


Catching Fire comes out on November 22nd. Here's a couple more posters, if you haven't seen them yet.

    I used to really like the Drew Carey show. Anything with Ryan Stiles will usually do it. Speaking of, Whose Line is coming back!

  • toblerone

    Fun Fact: The Hunger Games characters were all based on characters.from The Drew Carey Show.

    Katniss = Kate
    Peeta = Drew
    Gale = Oswald
    Effie = Mimi
    Haymitch = Lewis
    Nigel = Plutarch
    President Snow = Mrs. Louder

    Finnick = Larry

    I just want to see the tabloid rags that unite Peeta and Katniss in the Brangelina way...I can't wait for them to become Peeniss!

  • Cazadora

    Or Katpee

  • Natallica

    Are Katniss and Peeta having some kind of Scientology wedding on that poster?

  • Ooh, I miss Peeta's jaw so much. It's so...jaw-y. And magnificent.

  • L.O.V.E.

    She's the spawn of Jig Saw and Bjork. What did you expect?

  • PaddyDog

    Effie was my Halloween costume last year but then I got sick and couldn't go to the party. Now I'll have to build a whole new look if I'm going to use her for this year. On the other hand based on these photos, I can just buy some pink and let the dogs play shredder for an hour or so.

  • Robert

    There's a portrait of Ceasar Flickerman going around, too. It's also underwhelming. I think they're aiming for regal and coming off as bored and gassy.

  • Tinkerville

    I don't know what it says about me that I kind of want Effie's shoes. Also, I love the classic Soviet propaganda style of the poster.

  • MrsAtaxxia

    Alexander McQueen, Fall 2012 Runway look 29 is Effies whole outfit, including shoes so you can! Provided you have a lot of money of course.

  • MissAmynae

    McQueen is my Jeebus, so there was much rejoicing in this house.

  • MrsAtaxxia

    You and me both sister.

  • Tinkerville

    IT'S SO FLUFFY! If someone's willing to lend me a few thousand dollars, I'll be wearing that look to every staff meeting for the next year. I might get fired but it'll be worth it.

  • MrsAtaxxia

    Ah ha! Figured out how to post image! I lurrrrve how floofy it is. This was the collection that Sarah Burton said was inspired by jellyfish and I ADORE it. Its so wonderfully whimsical.

  • That's fantastic! I love her crazyass costumes.

  • duckandcover

    If you think of something else, the blandness that fills your mouth isn't all that bad.

    (That's what she said.)

  • Sara_Tonin00

    still haven't read it...(or seen the first one, actually).

  • BWeaves

    Me, either. I have zero interest.

    Also, they look plastic in that poster. Real people have pores.

  • Jennifer Schmennifer

    The plastic look makes sense if you read the book...or see the movie.
