Sorry, is noting that Jennifer Lawrence looks really, well, slick in this trailer a little gross? Because, she does. I don't remember her working up this much of a sweat during The Hunger Games, and in that, homegirl was fighting for her life! Against Kiefer Sutherland! And Wes Bentley's facial hair! And Josh Hutcherson's smoldering looks! Such challenges would force me to perspire, I'm sure.
But here we have her in the new, third trailer for House at the End of the Street, bouncing around in a white tanktop, getting involved with the wrong boy, and realizing that perhaps that guy - whose parents were murdered and his sister disappeared from the house he still lives in - is hiding a variety of unpleasant truths. The trailer says that each house has a "secret," but come on, really? If so, my home can tell you a lot about my embarrassing late-night eating habits. Like, too much.
The focus isn't really on the house, of course, but what goes on inside of it - murder! mayhem! making out! Lawrence seems to be widening her range with this one, which hopefully will end up being more than your typical slash-and-dash, throwaway horror flick. Given her wise choices up until this point - an Oscar nomination for Winter's Bone, being adorable and self-deprecating during all the promotion for The Hunger Games, winning over fandom and critics alike - maybe there's more to House at the End of the Street than meets the eye. ... Maybe.
House at the End of the Street hits theaters Sept. 21, 2012. For the trailer (which debuted on Yahoo! Movies today), click through!
