  • Francis Lawrence’s Spy Thriller Red Sparrow Starring Jennifer Lawrence Gets New Trailer and Poster

Dominika Egorova (Lawrence) is a Sparrow, a weapon "in the global struggle for power".

20th Century Fox will release Red Sparrow on March 2, 2018. Following The Hunger Games, Red Sparrow sets out to cement Lawrence's place in the action genre after the actress has successfully become one of Hollywood's most sought after actresses. Francis Lawrence - the Oscar-winner's director on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and both The Hunger Games: Mockingjay films - helms this new feature. A prima ballerina whose ferocity has pushed her body and mind to the absolute limit.

In the trailer, Lawrence's Dominika Egorova is sent to sparrow school, a secret intelligence service that trains young adults to use their bodies and minds as tactics.

The synopsis of the film reads: "When she suffers a career-ending injury, Dominika and her mother are facing a bleak and uncertain future".


Red Sparrow also stars Joel Edgerton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker and Jeremy Irons. Based on the novel by Jason Matthews, the movie stars Jennifer Lawrence and depicts the transformation of a Russian ballerina into a weapon highly trained in psychological manipulation. After much torture and the "sadistic training process" of the Sparrow School, Dominika comes out the most unsafe Sparrow the school has ever produced.

A handsome young woman with considerable ballerina training is transformed by her nefarious Russian superiors (through a covert-ops program) to be a world-class assassin and spy. But when Dominika takes the field as a double agent, soon hooking up with an American CIA mole (Edgerton), she comes to question everything she's become. Her response: "I'll find a way". I just thought, 'I'll never do that again.

What do you think of this film, or of the new trailer?
