Much like the other female super-spy whose name is taken from an animal, Red Sparrow is kicking all sorts of ass while being completely out of everyone’s league.
We’ve had a trailer before this, but this Super Bowl spot shows what happens after Jennifer Lawrence’s ballerina decides to take her life back. She’s a natural at this, staring right through everyone else with dead eyes and a cold decisiveness. It makes sense that she’d take to shooting and spying.
Watch the new trailer:
While her accent isn’t...the greatest...we do get to see CIA agent Joel Edgerton working his magic while Lawrence seduces, slays, and otherwise beats anyone in her way.
Here’s the full synopsis:
“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.”
The spy adaptation hits theaters on March 2, 2018.
