The countdown to the November release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is well and truly on, and yesterday Yahoo released a new still from the movie. As you can see, Effie Trinket (played by Elizabeth Banks) is dressed in a Alexander McQueen design. The Sarah Burton butterfly dress was part of the Spring/Summer 2011 collection, but didn’t appear on the runway with the matching headpiece. This isn’t the first time Effie has worn McQueen, and Catching Fire looks like it will be loaded with high fashion references – remember the Christopher Kane lookalike dress Katniss was pictured in?
The first trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has already been released, and it looks amazing – despite the fact I totally disagree with their casting of Finnick (who doesn’t actually appear in the trailer, but unfortunately isn’t Armie Hammer). Take a look if you haven’t seen it already:
And in more Hunger Games news (yes, I am obsessed!), Julianne Moore is rumoured to be joining the cast for the third instalment as President Coin. She’s definitely not who I expected, but it would be fantastic to see her take on the role!
Are you getting excited about The Hunger Games: Catching Fire? Are you pleased to see Effie wearing McQueen again?
