As fans are eagerly anticipating the feature film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games, Lionsgate is doing their best to tide them over. A new poster was recently unveiled as part of a “100 Days Until The Hunger Games” celebration, and now the studio is set to release a collection of China Glaze nail polish in conjunction with the film. The “Colors from the Capitol” collection was actually announced a couple weeks ago, but today an ad for the nail polish has been released and it features a new look at Elizabeth Banks as the flamboyantly pink Effie Trinket. While the collection won’t be released until March 1st, hopefully this is the first of many movie tie-in ads that’ll give us new looks at some of the characters.
Hit the jump to check out the image. The Hunger Games opens March 23rd.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Hunger Games:
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the evil Capitol of the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. A twisted punishment for a past uprising and an ongoing government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains. Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. THE HUNGER GAMES is directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novel, the first in a trilogy published by Scholastic that has over 16 million copies in print in the United States alone, has developed a massive global following.
