Good Lord but Jennifer Lawrence is easy on the eyes! Sorry to state the obvious, but that's the first thing that went through my mind when I saw the just-released first photo of the red-hot actress all sweaty and scared in House at the End of the Street, her follow-up to this weekend's The Hunger Games. The film is due out on September 21st. Check out the full image after the jump.
Above is the first official image of Jennifer Lawence from House at the End of the Street, and below is a description of what's going on. But first, the offical synopsis: "Seeking a fresh start, newly divorced Sarah (Oscar®-nominee Elisabeth Shue; Leaving Las Vegas, Piranha 3D) and her daughter Elissa (Oscar®-nominee Jennifer Lawrence; X-Men: First Class, Winter's Bone) 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, My Soul to Take), 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."
As for this image, Entertainment Weekly says that "Director Mark Tonderai (the 2008 road-trip thriller Hush) is reluctant to give away too much, but obviously Lawrence's character is freaking out big-time. 'She's basically managed to get into Max's house, waiting for his character, and she's made a discovery there about his family and is trying to hide before her presence is detected,' he says."
EW further explains that "Thieriot plays a 21-year-old who lingers in the house against the wishes of the other neighbors, who would rather forget both him and his family's horrific history. 'Since he lives in this house and is driving down people's home values, he's very ostracized in this town,' Tonderai says. 'The murder was committed by his sister, and she disappeared into the woods. There's this rumor she still lives in the woods. People have seen her, and she's insane. But is she out in the woods? And if she is, how does she feel about her brother getting involved with somebody else?'"
"You can probably guess — she's not happy."
