In a particularly unusual movie tie-in those pesky PR people are to release a new selection of nail polishes for 'The Hunger Games'. It appears that Elizabeth Banks' ('Slither') character Effie Trinket, from the sci-fi action feature, is to be the new face of China Glaze when they'll be releasing their new line of nail polishes called Capitol Colours. There will be 12 different polishes that are all said to be inspired by the 12 districts that are featured in the new feature adaption from director Gary Ross. A new poster has been revealed for the promotion which features Effie and the tagline "What are you wearing to the opening ceremonies?" Jennifer Lawrence ('X-Men: First Class'), Josh Hutcherson ('The Vampire's Assistant'), Liam Hemsworth ('Triangle'), Willow Shields, Stanley Tucci ('The Lovely Bones'), Woody Harrelson ('Zombieland'), Toby Jones ('The Mist', 'St Trinian's) and Wes Bentley ('P2') all star in the movie based on the novel by Suzanne Collins. Check out the new poster below.
"Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part 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' opens from 23 March 2012.
