Jennifer Lawrence is a deadly seductress in Fox’s first teaser trailer for spy thriller Red Sparrow. The actress stars as Dominika Egorova, a former ballerina whose career-ending injury leads her to be recruited for the Russian assassin-training Sparrow School.
In the film’s first trailer, Jennifer is seen after her Sparrow School training, which involves “young officers trained to seduce and manipulate,” a voiceover explains. “To use their bodies, to use everything.”
In the clip, Egorova sports many looks to deceive her targets – from switching between various blonde and brown wigs to wearing alluring dresses – while leaving a bloody and deadly trail in her wake. Costar Joel Edgerton, who also makes an appearance in the trailer, plays a CIA agent who works to earn Egorova’s trust.
A footage shows her in a brunette wig and a low-cut red dress on a bed with a drink, followed by a man placing a mobile phone and money clip on the table and a disembodied male voice commanding her: “Take off your dress.”
J. Law re-teams with director Francis Lawrence, who directed the lead actress in the last three Hunger Games. Meanwhile, Jeremy Irons, Mary-Louise Parker, Charlotte Rampling and Matthias Schoenaerts also star in the spy thriller.
Red Sparrow, which had originally been scheduled for theatrical release on 10th Nov 2017, will open on 2nd March 2018.
