SNL Elizabeth Banks promos

Posted on

NBC

Elizabeth Banks is set to host Saturday Night Live for the first time this weekend, about one week before her new movie The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 hits theaters. After four movies in Panem, Banks is a bit of an expert, so when Kenan Thompson asks her how she thinks he would fare in the new SNL promos, she gives him her professional assessment.

“No, you would die, almost immediately,” she tells him. “I’m sure of it.”

In addition to informing Thompson that the odds are not in his favor, Banks bonds with him over trust falls and shows off her new, sky-high hairstyle.

Disclosure will stop by Studio 8H as the musical guest, and Lorde and Sam Smith are also set to make appearances. Watch Bangs Banks’ promo video above.
