Jennifer Lawrence's most recent film, mother!, didn't exactly set the world on fire, though people certainly have strong opinions on it. Those of you hoping that she'll get back to some down and dirty Hunger Games style action cinema are going to be very pleased by the release of this new trailer for Red Sparrow.
Jennifer reteams with Hunger Games 2-4 director Francis Lawrence for this espionage action thriller, where she plays a Russian ballerina who is recruited by a secret agency called "Sparrow School." Here they will teach her to use her already agile dancer body as a weapon and in time, she becomes a killing machine. Her latest mission, however, forces her to confront a CIA operative, the outcome of which may determine the fate of both countries.
Sounds like some intense stuff. I personally really like Jennifer Lawrence, which is an unpopular opinion these days for some reason. I think she's a natural and when paired with the right director, the right character, and the right script, she can achieve greatness. Where this falls on that spectrum remains to be seen. Red Sparrow hits theaters on March 2, 2018.
