Jennifer Lawrence is a Russian spy in Red Sparrow trailer

Share

There's a new trailer for Red Sparrow, a spy thriller from Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence, and Lawrence's character has kind of a lot in common with Johansson's Marvel character Black Widow.

As always, it's a pleasure to see Jennifer Lawrence on screen and Red Sparrow will certainly be no different, however the script will turn out.

Granted, I'm a fan of spy thrillers in general, but this looks like a cool decision by Lawrence (and Lawrence) that will help people forget about that mother! movie she made past year. She is put into a no-win scenario where she must either accept training to become a Sparrow, or she will die.

The film starsJennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games), Mary-Louise Parker (Weeds), Joel Edgerton (Bright), Jeremy Irons (Batman v Superman), Matthias Schoenaerts, Ciaran Hinds, and Joely Richardson. "Your only problem is you have a soul".

Just because Red Sparrow follows the recent trend of female-led action movies, audiences are quick to compare them against each other - something that isn't usually done for the millions of similar male action movies. Earlier this year the studio described the film adding, "Dominika Egorova is many things".

Willing to do anything to protect her mother, Dominika goes along with it. "A master of seductive and manipulative combat".

While the first trailer was more akin to a cryptic tone poem (and an excuse to parade Lawrence around in tight, form-fitting outfits), the second Red Sparrow trailer threatens to reveal the entire plot to the spy thriller film. Lawrence plays Egorova, who finds herself destitute after an injury ends her ballet career. Teased to be playing both sides, Dominika soon becomes a threat to the sparrows, with Edgerton's character believing there's more to her than anyone truly knows. As she comes to terms with her new abilities, Dominika meets a Central Intelligence Agency agent who tries to convince her that he is the only person she can trust.
