Red Sparrow co-stars Joel Edgerton (Bright), Mary-Louise Parker (Red), Ciaran Hinds (Justice League), Jeremy Irons (Justice League), Joely Richardson (The Tudors), Matthias Schoenaerts (The Danish Girl) and Charlotte Rampling (Assassin's Creed).
Lawrence was directed by Francis Lawrence, the duo have worked together before, partnering for several of the popular "Hunger Games" installments.
Willing to do anything to protect her mother, Dominika goes along with it.
Based on Jason Matthews' novel, Red Sparrow tells the story of Dominika Egorova, a ballerina who becomes a Russian agent. And a Russian saying, "If she is compromised, she will be eliminated".
The film is set to hit theaters on March 2. After enduring the perverse and sadistic training process, she emerges as the most unsafe Sparrow the program has ever produced.
Whether Red Sparrow can differentiate itself from its obvious fictional predecessors remains to be seen, especially since the project seems extremely indebted to Marvel's preexisting character (who was even trained in a "red room"!). See the poster below. Or tend to be much more, kind of, plot-driven, and less personal and personal dilemma driven. "I'll find a way", she replies coolly.
The full Red Sparrow trailer builds on the wonderfully ominous teaser, this time detailing the backstory of Lawrence's character, Dominika Egorova. That brief description as it happens could also easily apply to Hunger Games, the franchise that made Lawrence a star. From there, we're heading into particularly tropey territory-will Lawrence, the spy with a heart of gold, be able to extricate herself from the service of her (clearly evil) mother country? It sounds like Lawrence the actress and Lawrence the director are trying to re-capture that magic with Red Sparrow.
