Third Trailer for House at the End of the Street Starring Jennifer Lawrence
08.02.12 by Ryan
After starring in both last year's X-Men: First Class and this year's The Hunger Games, where did Jennifer Lawrence find the time to star in the upcoming horror flick House at the End of the Street?
The answer is easy, as The House at the End of the Street was actually shot before either of those movies, with Lawrence cast before she was even nominated for her performance in 2010's Winter's Bone. Relativity Media quickly snapped up the distribution rights for the movie, eventually settling for a fall 2012 release. Director Mark Tonderai (Hush) revealed in an interview with Collider in March that he immediately sensed a "star" quality in the actress.
I’d seen Winter’s Bone, and then I looked up everything else that she did. No, she came in and she auditioned. It’s probably the last audition she’s ever going to do! She auditioned for me, and I remember it so clearly ‘cause I’ve got quite a funny story about it. I always kneel down when actors come in because you’re there with all these masses of producers and it’s really intimidating and I try to make it as easy as possible. I remember just kneeling in front of her, and she’s got this look that just looks right into you. I think that’s what stardom is. They make you feel like the most important person in the world, just by looking at you. She just read off the page. I realized that she was coming from another meeting and she probably hadn’t even read the sides, so she was reading cold. Yeah, Jen, if you’re reading this, I know that you did that. And remember thinking, “If this girl can do that cold, that’s pretty amazing!”
The third trailer for House at the End of the Street has arrived online. Check it out below following the movie's plot synopsis.
Seeking a fresh start, newly divorced Sarah (Elisabeth Shue) and her daughter Elissa (Lawrence) find the house of their dreams in a small, upscale, rural town. But when startling and unexplainable events begin to happen, Sarah and Elissa learn the town is in the shadows of a chilling secret. Years earlier, in the house next door, a daughter killed her parents in their beds, and disappeared — leaving only a brother, Ryan (Max Thieriot), as the sole survivor. Against Sarah's wishes, Elissa begins a relationship with the reclusive Ryan — and the closer they get, the deeper they're all pulled into a mystery more dangerous than they ever imagined.
Written by David Loucka (Dream House), House at the End of the Street co-stars Gil Bellows (The Shawshank Redemption).
