Jennifer Lawrence is breaking out her accent game as she plays a ballerina named Dominika Egorova who gets recruited to be a spy after a career-ending injury in the upcoming Red Sparrow. She gets put through the ringer at something called “Sparrow School,” and naturally enough, Charlotte Rampling is the one overseeing it all.
It looks like J-Law turns out to be a top recruit, but as it so often goes, the fact that she cares might be holding her back. As Jeremy Irons puts it, “Your only problem is you have a soul.”
What I most want to know is: is the former Katniss Everdeen making a career all about metaphorical bird-themed flicks? There was that Mockingjay in The Hunger Games, and Sparrow calls back to that franchise with Dominika’s fiery ballerina outfit and the fact it was directed by Francis Lawrence, who also helmed three of the HG‘s.
Red Sparrow flies into theaters March 2. Check out the trailer below:
