Elizabeth Banks shows us her “Hunger Games” costume!

So far on DT, you’ve seen a Penn alum professionally modeling some great Halloween costumes.

I now have another Penn alum wearing what will eventually be a great Halloween costume!

After the jump, check out Elizabeth Banks (C’96) in a new movie poster as the flamboyant “Effie Trinket” in the upcoming Hunger Games film!

As for what Liz is up to lately, she is in producing mode:

  • Check out a picture with her and Ana Kendrick here on the set of a new a capella group she’s producing called “Pitch Perfect”.
  • She and her husband Max Handelman (C’95, AEPi) is producing a new tv comedy for Fox called “Dave’s Dead” and is being described as Shaun of the Dead meets “My Name is Earl”.

What People Are Saying

"Because of Penntertainment, I got scouted for Nickelodeon. I had such a great time talking with them. I may be a resource for a show on science, travel, geography, gender etc. Thanks for all you do. It really makes a difference."
