Jennifer Lawrence Is a Killer Russian Spy in the New ‘Red Sparrow’ Trailer
No longer losing her mind in a house filled with uninvited guests, Jennifer Lawrence is now a trained Russian assassin. She’s also a ballerina, and you wouldn’t be alone if you got some Black Swan vibes from the newest Red Sparrow trailer.
Lawrence leads the spy thriller as Dominika Egorova, a woman who becomes the latest recruit in a Russian spy school led by an icy Charlotte Rampling. The newest trailer has a bunch of new footage since the first teaser back in the fall, teasing Lawrence’s transformation from scared Russian brunette to ice cold platinum blonde killer who wears extravagant bathing suits to the local pool. Her Dominika meets Joel Edgerton’s CIA agent, who tries to woo her over to his side of the spy game, and it's a classic trust-no-one-but-yourself. Based on the trailer, it looks like a pretty decent thriller; and worst case, Lawrence seducing and murdering bad dudes ought to be pretty entertaining.
Here’s the full synopsis:
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.
The film comes from Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence and also stars Jeremy Irons, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Mary-Louise Parker. Red Sparrow hits theaters March 2. Check out the new super red poster below.
