We see Jennifer Lawrence donning a number of different looks in the second full trailer for 20th Century Fox’s thriller Red Sparrow.
Dominika Egorova (Jennifer Lawrence) is an adult ballerina who, after being injured, is drafted against her will to become a ‘Sparrow’ – a Russian intelligence officer, taught to use her body and mind as weapons, as well as being trained in psychological manipulation. Her first target is Nate Nash (Joel Edgerton), a CIA officer who handles the agency’s most sensitive infiltration of Russian intelligence. As the two meet, their attraction and deception threatens their careers, allegiances and the security of both countries.
The new trailer delves a little more into how Dominika gets involved in becoming a ‘Sparrow’ and her training. Despite the dehumanizing training process, she still manages to retain “a soul”; something that’s considered a problem when it comes to her work and a likely factor when she considers becoming a double agent.
Adapted from Jason Matthews’ novel, the film is directed by Francis Lawrence and also stars Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker and Jeremy Irons.
Red Sparrow opens in the UK and US on 2 March 2018.
