Red Sparrow trailer spies Jennifer Lawrence as an assassin-in-training

Jennifer Lawrence goes noir in first 'Red Sparrow' Trailer

The first Red Sparrow trailer has arrived with a look at the Oscar victor reuniting with her Hunger Games director, Francis Lawrence (no relation), to bring to life a master of seductive combat.

Based on the novel of the same name by Jason Matthews, a former Central Intelligence Agency operative, Lawrence plays plays Dominika Egorova, a graduate of the Sparrow School, which trains agents in the art of seducing the enemy. This also looks to be a darker, sexier and bloodier affair than anything you'll find in the MCU - which again - is pretty much the only way to really do a Black Widow-style movie up right. The synopsis suggests an effort to reconcile the various aspects of her life and that's either a complete red herring, or something that requires a lot of screentime.

If Lawrence can pull out all the stops on a portrayal, as she has managed in her David O. Russell playlist, this could well become an instant genre classic. Even a moderate marketing push will have audiences flocking to this one. She is a devoted daughter who is set to do anything to protect her mother.




A master of seductive and manipulative combat.

Interestingly, she starts off as prima ballerina Dominika Egorova who has to stop dancing due to an injury.

Lawrence's character goes through the school's "perverse and sadistic" training process, the film's description reads, and becomes "the most risky Sparrow the program has ever produced".
