For #trailertuesday we’re taking a look at the brand new, official second trailer for Red Sparrow starring the incomparable Jennifer Lawrence as Russian Intelligence agent Dominika Egorova.
Dominika Egorova is drafted against her will to become a “sparrow,” a trained seductress in the Russian security service. Dominika learns to use her body as a weapon, but struggles to maintain her sense of self during the dehumanizing training process. Finding her power in an unfair system, she emerges as one of the program’s strongest assets. Her first target is Nate Nash (Joel Edgerton), a CIA officer who handles the agency’s most sensitive infiltration of Russian intelligence. The two young operatives fall into a spiral of attraction and deception, which threatens their careers, allegiances and the security of both countries. Based on the book by former CIA officer Jason Matthews, Red Sparrow reunites Jennifer Lawrence with her Hunger Games director, Francis Lawrence with Joel Edgerton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker and Jeremy Irons rounding out the cast.
Red Sparrow looks luxe in aspects of setting and costuming; the action and training sequences look like they’ll be grueling and my early pick is this will be the more high-brow woman spy action movie that people were looking for, if they were disappointed in Atomic Blonde‘s pop culture brazenness.
Red Sparrow is out in NZ Cinemas on March 1st 2018 so until then, here’s JLaw kicking much butt in the trailer.
