Jennifer Lawrence Stars as a Russian Spy in First ‘Red Sparrow’ Trailer
Jennifer Lawrence sizzles as a trained assassin in the trailer for the upcoming film Red Sparrow.
The film, based on a novel of the same name by former CIA operative Jason Matthews, see’s Lawrence play Russian operative Dominika Egorova, a spy trained to user her body and sexuality to manipulate others.
Red Sparrow’s trailer establishes the character and her background through off-camera narration as scenes play of Lawrence being trained and seemingly murdering several men, all set to a chilling score.
The official 20th Century Fox synopsis of Red Sparrow reads:
“Dominika Egorova is many things. A devoted daughter determined to protect her mother at all costs. A prima ballerina whose ferocity has pushed her body and mind to the absolute limit. A master of seductive and manipulative combat. When she suffers a career-ending injury, Dominika and her mother are facing a bleak and uncertain future. That is why she finds herself manipulated into becoming the newest recruit for Sparrow School, a secret intelligence service that trains exceptional young people like her to use their bodies and minds as weapons. After enduring the perverse and sadistic training process, she emerges as the most dangerous Sparrow the program has ever produced. Dominika must now reconcile the person she was with the power she now commands, with her own life and everyone she cares about at risk, including an American CIA agent who tries to convince her he is the only person she can trust.”
Red Sparrow – which stars Lawrence, Joel Edgerton, Jeremy Irons, Matthias Schoenaerts, Ciarán Hinds, and Joely Richardson – was directed by Francis Lawrence, who previously worked with J-Law (no relation) on The Hunger Games series.
Red Sparrow is scheduled for release on March 2, 2018.
