Red Sparrow Trailer: Jennifer Lawrence Learns the Spy Game

Francis Lawrence’s Spy Thriller Red Sparrow Starring Jennifer Lawrence Gets New Trailer and Poster

The upcoming thriller, from director Francis Lawrence, follows the life of Dominika Egorova - a ballerina who suffers an injury that destroys her career.

Well, on good side effect of having Russia back in the news so much is that we may get a lot more good old fashioned Russian Spy movies. The spy-thriller stars Jennifer Lawrence, and is scheduled to hit theaters later this spring.

It's not a bad accent, though it's clear why the first trailer wanted to focus on the eerie visuals and the wordless chemistry between Lawrence and Joel Edgerton's American CIA agent.

Check out the trailer above to see Lawrence undergo tortuous training, combat and don unrealistic swimsuits.

MI stores in new round of Sears & Kmart closings
Sears had already been planning to downsize in Orland Park , where it's been an anchor store since the mall opened in 1976. Sears Holdings announced today that it is closing 64 Kmart stores, including its location at Laurel Mall near Hazleton.

Red Sparrow is based on the first in author Jason Matthews' trilogy. It follows Dominikia Egorova as she's recruited into the Sparrow School after witnessing a heinous assassination of a Soviet political enemy, becoming their most risky and efficient asset yet. It's that compassion that makes her fall in love with her mark, Nathanial Nash (Edgerton), an American CIA agent acting as a mole in Russian Federation. The film comes out March 2, 2018. Sounds like that long-awaited standalone origin story for Marvel's Black Widow film starring Scarlett Johansson, right? The striking art features Lawrence's lead character, awash in red, with the title standing out in stark white text. "To see her transform in a courageous way and truly push herself into a new territory has been one of the most exciting things about this project".

In the trailer, Lawrence's Dominika Egorova is sent to sparrow school, a secret intelligence service that trains young adults to use their bodies and minds as tactics.

After completing the training process she becomes the most unsafe Sparrow the program has ever created.

Joel Edgerton, meanwhile, plays an American CIA agent who embarks on an affair with her - but may also be targeted by her, or could possibly be looking to defect.
