Box Office Poison: Opening of Jennifer Lawrence’s ‘mother!’ Could Hit Career Low

Back in September of 2012, a low-budget horror film calledHouse at the End of the Street was released all across the nation on 3,083 screens. Because Jennifer Lawrence was the film’s star, because she had just broken through in a major way thanks toWinter’s Bone and X-Men: First Class, this low-budget horror film opened just shy of first place with a perfectly respectable $12.3 million.

As of today, that $12.3M is the lowest wide release opening of Lawrence’s career. However, with tomorrow’s wide release of mother!, Lawrence could break that ignoble record.
