Elizabeth Banks has said that she feels "gratified" to be part of The Hunger Games.

The actress, who plays Effie Trinket in the big-screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins's dystopian young adult trilogy, expressed her excitement for projects in the upcoming year in both her personal life and career.

"Obviously, The Hunger Games is coming out, and I absolutely love the series. I was a huge, dorky fan long ago; it's something I'm really gratified to be a part of, the movie," she explained to MTV News.

"I'm really looking forward to that. I'm really looking forward to a real vacation, like a beach with no-one around, and hopefully watch movies, because I love movies and I don't get to see many movies.

"I'm Secret-ing some ideas this year. I wrote them out, they're on my fridge for all to see. I won't say them here but I definitely have some specific goals. Last year is going to be hard to top.

"I'm really excited about Pitch Perfect that I produced through Universal that's coming out and stars all these really amazing young actors that I hope will all be ones to watch. It's just a really fun, hilarious, insane movie that I'm really, really proud of."

Banks recently said that the release of The Hunger Games is timely and will educate young people on the ways of the world.
