When Jennifer Lawrence was just starting out she was primarily known for her action-heavy roles in the ‘Hunger Games‘ franchise. As shes matured as an actress. shes tended to shy away from those types of roles in favor of more critically acclaimed fare. However, it seems as if J-Law may be dabbling in her old playground once again.
The new trailer for ‘Red Sparrow‘ shows Lawrence as a member of the Soviet spy group loosely known as the sparrows. She looks as if she is somewhat forced into the role but then begins to accept it over time, Or does she? The film will obviously play with that conflict as well as seemingly bring the heat with some bonkers action sequences. The film also bolsters a stellar supporting cast that features Jeremy Irons and Joel Edgerton.
We’ve attached the trailer and full synopsis below.
‘Dominika Egorova is many things. A devoted daughter determined to protect her mother at all costs. A prima ballerina whose ferocity has pushed her body and mind to the absolute limit. A master of seductive and manipulative combat. When she suffers a career-ending injury, Dominika and her mother are facing a bleak and uncertain future.
That is why she finds herself manipulated into becoming the newest recruit for Sparrow School, a secret intelligence service that trains exceptional young people like her to use their bodies and minds as weapons. After enduring the perverse and sadistic training process, she emerges as the most dangerous Sparrow the program has ever produced. Dominika must now reconcile the person she was with the power she now commands, with her own life and everyone she cares about at risk, including an American CIA agent who tries to convince her he is the only person she can trust.’ Via 20th Century Fox
