Jennifer Lawrence's 'House At The End Of The Street' Song Not Sung By Jennifer Lawrence (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"House At The End Of The Street" was shot before Jennifer Lawrence was even cast in "The Hunger Games." The horror film was originally set to come out in February, but got pushed back by Relativity to better take advantage of Lawrence's standing as Katniss Everdeen. In the end, the decision will likely pay off: "House At The End of the Street," buoyed by a marketing campaign focused on Lawrence (and her decolletage), should finish on the top half of the weekend box office chart come Sunday night.

Of course, that doesn't mean "House At The End Of The Street" (or #HATES, as the film is being promoted as on Twitter), is without controversy. Earlier this week, as part of the promotion push for the film, Lionsgate released a clip of Lawrence singing a song called "All You've Got To Do Is Fall In Love."

"Jennifer Lawrence Sings in The New Music Video" read the subject line on the PR email, which heralded "a whole new side of the multi-talented Jennifer Lawrence" in the email body.

About that: Despite the email wording, it turns out Lawrence wasn't actually singing in the clip. As Variety editor Josh Dickey confirmed, the song is actually being performed by Sarah Rayne, a session musician also receives credit in the finished film. According to Dickey, Lawrence's version was fine, but production sources said Rayne's "sound fit the scene and character better."

Watch Lawrence lip-sync to Rayne's vocals above. For more on the "House At The End Of the Street" misdirection, head over to Variety.
