Jennifer Lawrence Goes Atomic Blonde In 'Red Sparrow' Trailer

Add in the fact that Jennifer Lawrence never does say anything, and we really only see her walk for a few seconds, and the trailer for Red Sparrow is in unique territory indeed.

This looks so intense - in the best way!

When you're looking at the world of trailers, especially those that run around 90 seconds, you don't find many that feature 30 seconds of the film's star sitting nearly perfectly still.

Based on Jason Matthews's novel of the same name, the story finds Lawrence's character Dominika Egorova meeting a Central Intelligence Agency agent played by Joel Edgerton and deciding whether or not to become a double agent and leave the Russian Sparrow program.

Interestingly, she starts off as prima ballerina Dominika Egorova who has to stop dancing due to an injury.


The film reteams Lawrence with Francis Lawrence (no relation, apparently), who directed Catching Fire and Mockingjay, and features a strong cast outside of J-Law and Edgerton.

Recruited by the secret and sinister Sparrow School, she becomes a highly trained and lethal weapon. Dominika emerges from this sadistic training process as the most risky Sparrow of them all. In addition to Jennifer Lawrence, Red Sparrow stars Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker, and Jeremy Irons.

Red Sparrow or when the Atomic Blonde meets Tom Clancy.

Be sure to ch-ch-check out the new teaser for yourself (above) and let us know if you plan to catch Red Sparrow when it hits theaters on March 2, 2018.
