Jennifer Lawrence Takes on the Spy Game in Trailer for ‘Red Sparrow’

Jennifer Lawrence reunites with her Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence in the upcoming thriller based on the novel of the same name, Red Sparrow.

Lawrence plays Dominika Egorova, a Russian secret intelligence agent that belongs to a group of ‘Sparrows’ – agents that are trained to use their bodies, and sexuality to get the job done.

However, her first mission, to target a CIA agent, could unravel the security of both nations.

The trailer doesn’t reveal much except for a look at the visual style of the film, and features some voice-over narration explaining the situation (as outlined above).

We get to see Lawrence in various scenes from the film, as well as her co-star Joel Edgerton, however it’s all rather mysterious-like, not giving much away.

The trailer is intriguing, but only to a point, as it’s more of a teaser than anything, so it’s hard to get excited about the film at this stage.

Jennifer Lawrence is a superstar though, and one of the best working actors in Hollywood today, so it’s certainly a must-see.

Francis Lawrence, her director in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 & 2 (2014-2015) as well as Catching Fire (2013) directs the film, and Jeremy Irons, Mary-Louise Parker and Matthias Schoenaerts also feature.

The film releases on 1 March 2018, check out the trailer below.
