red sparrow trailer

The Black Widow origin movie you always wanted? It’s here, except it’s called Red Sparrow and it stars Jennifer Lawrence speaking in a Russian accent while donning an array of flattering outfits.

It’s not a terrible accent, though it’s clear why the first trailer wanted to focus on the eerie visuals and the wordless chemistry between Lawrence and Joel Edgerton‘s American CIA agent. But the newest trailer is all about Lawrence’s Dominika Egorova, as she makes the painful journey from prima ballerina to ruthless Soviet secret agent.

Silent and stoic, Jennifer Lawrence breezes her way through the Red Sparrow trailer, a story following a prima ballerina who is trained to become one of Russia’s deadliest intelligence officers.

Based on the book by Jason Matthews, the big screen adaptation of Red Sparrow helmed by Francis Lawrence looks incredibly brutal and cold, allowing Lawrence, who often plays somewhat overwrought characters, to stretch her acting chops in the type of story we’ve never seen her tackle before.
