There's no guarantee that Jennifer Lawrence's millions of new Hunger Games fans will follow their heroine to other movies.
It has, after all, taken Kristen Stewart years to convince her loyal Twihards to try her out in different roles — a goal achieved (after many underseen indies) only this summer with Snow White and the Huntsman.
But this month we'll get our first inkling of how Lawrence will be received post-Hunger Games when the fright flick House at the End of the Street hits theatres.
Then two months from now her talky farce Silver Linings Playbook — which co-stars Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro, and premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival — will show a much different side of the 22-year-old actor.
Filmed in Ottawa (filling in for small-town America) in the summer of 2010, House at the End of the Street is one of those horrors where all is not as it seems.
"It's about a teenage girl who moves into a new house with her mom, and finds out that this boy in the neighbourhood who she has a crush on her may not be as trustworthy as she thought," explains Lawrence during a recent chat in Los Angeles.
