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. watch the trailer >> Posted 08.02.12 by Ryan
In The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence competed against 23 children to survive but in her upcoming movie, House at the End of the Street, Lawrence will have to take on just one, albeit ghoulish, little girl to survive.
Lawrence enters the horror genre with House at the End of the Street, which just got its second freaky trailer. Unlike the movie’s first trailer, which revealed the movie’s horrors in reverse, this second trailer gives viewers a straightforward scare. (For an added scary bonus, the movie's Twitter hashtag is #HATES)
Here’s the movie’s 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.
House at the End of the Street was directed by Mark Tonderai, based on a script by David Loucka. watch the new trailer >> Posted 06.02.12 by Chris
After the phenomenal success of The Hunger Games, studio Lionsgate is looking to stay in the Jennifer Lawrence business, adding the actress to an adaptation of gossip columnist Jeanette Walls' 2005 memoir, The Glass House.
Deadline reports Lionsgate has acquired the rights for the book, which details the unconventional and poverty-stricken upbringing Walls experienced with her "dysfunctional but vibrant" family. The book spent 261 weeks on The New York Times' best-seller list, and with producer Gil Netter (The Blind Side, Water for Elephants) and screenwriter Marti Noxon (Fright Night, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) attached to the project, expect a funny, tragic, yet uplifting adaptation. more on lawrence plus the full poster >> Posted 04.23.12 by Ryan
Now that Jennifer Lawrence is a household name after her portrayal as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, moviegoers are going to take more of an interest in the actress' career. Before starring in the movie with the third-largest opening ever, Lawrence was best known her role as a young Mystique in last year's X-Men: First Class or for her mostly unseen Oscar-nominated performance in Winter's Bone.
While audiences wait for her to lace up Katniss' boots again in Catching Fire, Lawrence can be seen on the big screen in the horror flick House at the End of the Street, which just released its first trailer. (Days after Hungers Games' record-breaking opening weekend. Coincidence? We think not.) watch the trailer >> Posted 03.29.12 by Chris
