We previously posted a video from EPIX News of their interviews with Gary Ross, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks and Woody Harrelson. Now they’ve released additional interviews with Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam and Elizabeth.
Jennifer talks Katniss and reveals she had a whistling double
Elizabeth talks about creating Effie (this video includes a number of clips of Effie during the Reaping)
Jennifer, Josh and Liam talk about training for the film
Jennifer, Elizabeth, Josh, Liam and Wes Bentley talk about reality TV and entertainment
AMC Theaters talked with Elizabeth Banks during the recent Hunger Games press junket. Elizabeth talks about loving the books, Effie’s wardrobe, and which other Hunger Gamescharacter she would like to play.
It’s the pink hair that did it.
For Elizabeth Banks, playing Effie Trinket in the upcoming screen version of The Hunger Games first clicked into place thanks to the character’s signature cotton-candy coif.
“I would be in the hair and makeup trailer and I was Elizabeth, and then the wig went on and very suddenly I was Effie,” says Banks, 37. “Every day I would have that aha moment, like, ‘We did it! We found Effie!’ ”
In the best-selling The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, Effie serves as a publicity agent of sorts for the Games, a cruel arena battle that pits youths, called “tributes,” against each other in a televised fight to the death.
