Full Trailer for Spy Thriller 'Red Sparrow' Starring Jennifer Lawrence
"They gave me a choice: die, or become a Sparrow." 20th Century Fox has just revealed the second official trailer for spy thriller Red Sparrow, starring Jennifer Lawrence as the mysterious, deadly double agent spy named Dominika Egorova. This trailer comes after a TV spot aired during the Golden Globes last night. Lawrence plays a woman named Dominika, who is forced into a Russian spy/double agent program. In addition to Lawrence, the cast includes Joel Edgerton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker and Jeremy Irons. This is the latest film from director Francis Lawrence, who last directed the final three Hunger Games films. All this new footage looks slick, I'm excited for it. I'm curious about the double agent storyline and how it works, but I'm already sold and looking forward to finding out.
Here's the full-length trailer (+ poster) for Francis Lawrence's Red Sparrow, direct from YouTube:
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. Red Sparrow is directed by filmmaker Francis Lawrence, of the films Constantine, I Am Legend, Water for Elephants, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and Mockingjay: Part 1 & 2 previously. The screenplay is written by Eric Warren Singer and Justin Haythe, based on Jason Matthews' novel of the same name. 20th Century Fox will release Lawrence's Red Sparrow in theaters everywhere starting on March 2nd, 2018 this winter.

I only hope that Americans won't save her on the end. If so, this film can hardly be of any worth...

Getting a little tired of Jennifer Lawrence. She plays every single role exactly the same.

Don't pity them too much Bo. They're filthy rich.

She was good in mother!, great movie. I've said it before, you should see the movie before you criticize.

I'm not talking about dog poop, that analogy doesn't make sense. I'm talking about a movie. Which you have to actually see yourself before voicing your opinion about it, no matter how you spin it. It's fine if you're not interested in seeing it, but then you don't have a right to talk trash about it either. And by reading the script you've ruined any suspense that comes with watching it unfold, which is obviously a big part of this type of movie.

Way to overreact. What this boils down to is that judging and criticising a movie before you have seen it simply doesn't make sense. That's not an opinion, that's pretty much fact. You could never give it a fair judgment that way. And reading a script before seeing a movie, that's a separate issue. I know some people do that, but in my opinion, it ruins the suspense. Seems to me you're the one who can't tolerate other opinions. As for blocking me, now that's unsophisticated. Childish, even.

Looks like you've edited and removed your comment for some reason, I was still able to read it in my email notification though. I feel like the things you said could be directed to yourself more so than me. You started with calling me unsophisticated and simplistic, but you can't handle it when someone answers you in the same manner for some reason? And come on, blocking me? That's like a kid covering his ears with his hands 'cause he doesn't like what someone else is saying. And I don't have a problem with anyone not liking a movie I like, it's just that to have that opinion you need to see it first. Simple as that. There are other things you said that I'm not going to address here. Peace.

You missed out in mother! That movie pulled off incredible production feats. It should be witnessed just for the cinematography and direction alone.

Oh yeah, people were pretty torn about it. It wasn't just me. efterklang liked it as well. I didn't like the movie a lot actually. The cinematography and direction was great, the production was top notch, but the whole was confusing. I was torn like most. You've said you worked in film before that's why I suggested you missed out, I thought you'd like that kind of work.

Some of it was confusing to me, too. Mostly because I'm not well versed in bible-stuff. Did you read anything online after watching it? There are articles on collider and the telegraph that I found to be, at least in part, informative.

I'll just go watch HANNA or THE AMERICANS.

Hanna is one of my favourite all time movies. Saoirse Ronan and Cate Blanchette were amazing as was everyone else in there

Formulaic. Cliché. Why does she need to be from Russia? The "I need to save my parent" thing has been overdone. What ever happened to just wanting human dignity? Can't that be her motivation? Why would anyone want to be part of a group of assassins? I know I'd want to get out of their clutches.

Black Widow called. She'd like her origin story back.
