Jennifer Lawrence sees red in new trailer & poster for Red Sparrow

From WONDER WOMAN to ATOMIC BLONDE and this week’s PROUD MARY, we’re seeing an uptick in movies about women using a special set of ass-kicking skills to save the day. This March will see Jennifer Lawrence seducing and destroying (and all with a Russian accent) in RED SPARROW from director Francis Lawrence (HUNGER GAMES). A full trailer and poster have dropped for the movie, teasing a cold, bleak and intense espionage thriller that’s as brutal as it is sexy. And of course, I’m talking about Jeremy Irons when it comes to the sexiness.

Finish checking out the trailer above and read the plot synopsis from Fox:

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.

Below is also the new poster which finds Lawrence seeing red. Or is she being red? There’s a lot of red.

Lawrence has succeeded as an actress by exploring a wide variety of characters, but RED SPARROW will push her to places we’ve never seen in terms of sheer physicality. As true as that appears, the movie seems to be as much a character study as an action thriller. In the trailer, there’s a firm focus on her struggling to retain a slice of her humanity while being molded into some sort of killing/seducing machine. There’s something quite poignant in that story, and it makes me want to see it all the more.

RED SPARROW hits theaters March 2.
