Red Sparrow centres around Jennifer Lawrence as Dominika Egorova, a woman who 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.
And now, a second trailer has been released with a new poster.
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.
Everyone’s doing dodgy Russian accents in this, but on the other had, Ms Lawrence proved what a versatile actress she can be in mother!, so I’ve no doubt she can pull this off, too.
Also stars: Joel Edgerton, Mary-Louise Parker, Matthias Schoenaerts, Jeremy Irons, Ciarán Hinds, Charlotte Rampling, Joely Richardson, Thekla Reuten
Red Sparrow is released on March 2nd in the UK, and I’m really looking forward to this.
