Forgive us for a moment, but: EEEEK!!!!!

Okay, sorry. We're back.

But Lionsgate has released its first official promotional photo of Elizabeth Banks in the key Hunger Games role of Effie Trinket and it's safe to say we're a tad bit excited over it.

"A fun part of being an actor and a chameleon is taking on those looks," Banks told The Huffington Post of the transformation into this Capitol spokesperson. "Effie has a really theatrical, over-the-top, completely not me look to her. I'm very excited for people to see my portrayal. I have no idea if people are going to be into it. I hope they are."

The Hunger Games trailer, of course, has already been released; while the film comes out on March 23.
