Jennifer Lawrence has always occupied a peculiar place in Hollywood. A performer beloved for her comedic nature, without ever having starred in a big-screen comedy.
We've seen her as an apocalyptic teen heroine in The Hunger Games franchise and as a shapeshifting mutant in the X-Men universe, but the roles that propelled her onto the Oscar-winning actress tier are known for being serious, gritty and in many cases devoid of any actual audience joy.
(Even within her critically acclaimed movie, Joy).
In the same breath, her time on the promotional circuits for these prestige movies was peppered with hilarious viral moments and stories that painted the 33-year-old Oscar winner as a relatable goofball who seemed worlds away from the serious, often older, roles she had become known for.
Which is why it came as a bit of a surprise when the trailer for her new movie No Hard Feelings was released, marking the first time the actress has starred in a full-blown comedy film, and quite a retro-looking one at that.
From the trailer and the initial synopsis, No Hard Feelings felt very much like a callback to the early 2000s gross-out, sex comedies that ran rampant at the time across cinema screens.
Take a look at the trailer for No Hard Feelings right here. Post continues after video.
