Jennifer Lawrence’s hot streak as Hollywood’s sought-after actress. After successful runs in The Hunger Games franchise and the prequel X-Men movies and other projects like Passengers, Lawrence can be seen in theaters in Mother!, but fans can already look ahead to her next performance.
The Oscar winner will be reuniting with her Hunger Games director, Francis Lawrence (no relation) to bring to life a seductive femme fatale in the first Red Sparrow trailer.
Lawrence portrays Dominika Egorova, a former prima ballerina who is forced to give up her craft when her body and mind is pushed to the absolute limit and leads to a career-ending injury. As a devoted daughter to her mother and facing an uncertain future, Dominika finds herself manipulated into becoming the newest recruit for Sparrow School, a secret intelligence service that trains a person to become a Red Sparrow, a young person trained to use her body and mind as weapons. Dominika emerges as the most dangerous Sparrow of them all. Her first mission, targeting a CIA agent (Joel Edgerton), threatens to unravel the security of both nations and everyone she cares about as he tries to convince her he’s the only one she can trust.
This movie is based on the book by author Jason Matthews. Mary-Louise Parker and Jeremy Irons also feature in the film.
