Jennifer Lawrence is still our favorite blockbuster bombshell, despite the mixed reviews coming in for mother! this week.
Next up? In Red Sparrow, she plays Dominika Egorova, who’s drafted against her will to become a “sparrow,” a Russian operative trained to use her seductiveness as a weapon. The process is dehumanizing, but she comes out one of the agency’s most deadly assets. Her first target is Nate Nash (Joel Edgerton), a CIA officer with whom she falls into a dangerous spiral of attraction and deception.
What’s most intriguing is that the film reunites her with Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence – which certainly bodes well. But it also stars the considerable likes of Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker and Jeremy Irons.
Red Sparrow premieres March 2018. Watch the trailer below.
