Amid such erotically devious behavior (taught to her by Charlotte Rampling and Matthias Schoenaerts), Lawrence falls into an amorous affair with a Central Intelligence Agency agent (Joel Edgerton), who clearly wants her to defect, in large part because he realizes (as Jeremy Irons's bigwig intones) that she has a "soul" that makes her different than the rest of her "sparrow" compatriots.
Willing to do anything to protect her mother, Dominika goes along with it. Although her Russian accent might be a little shaky, her ability to kill a man has apparently not dimmed since The Hunger Games sailed off into its conclusion.
Red Sparrow is based on the first in author Jason Matthews' trilogy.
New Trailer for Jennifer Lawrence's RED SPARROW
Following a brief promo that aired during Golden Globes Sunday, 20th Century Fox released a full-length trailer for Red Sparrow. After much torture and the "sadistic training process" of the Sparrow School, Dominika comes out the most unsafe Sparrow the school has ever produced. The striking art features Lawrence's lead character, awash in red, with the title standing out in stark white text. I just thought, 'I'll never do that again. They tend to be much more political. And it's one of the things that drew me in, I'm very drawn to kind of stories about sort of isolated, lonely characters trying to survive.
That's the tagline for Jennifer Lawrence's new action-packed thriller Red Sparrow, which is hitting theaters this spring. Powerful people recruit her and force her to undergo rigorous training. Once she's in the sparrow program, however, Dominika finds the real battle isn't for country - it's to retain her soul, as the program tries to strip it away from her. That brief description as it happens could also easily apply to Hunger Games, the franchise that made Lawrence a star. Unfortunately, she does not have the money to pay for the care her mother needs.More news: China Says 32 People, Mostly Iranians, Missing After Oil Tanker Collision
