Check out this new poster and a couple of images released for Jennifer Lawrence‘s upcoming thriller Red Sparrow. This is one good looking Russian spy thrillier and I am looking forward to watch it, and not just because of Jennifer Lawrence. The upcoming movie is based on the book by Jason Matthews check out the synopsis below:
Dominika Egorova is many things. A devoted daughter determined to protect her mother at all costs. A prima ballerina whose ferocity has pushed her body and mind to the absolute limit. A master of seductive and manipulative combat.
When she suffers a career-ending injury, Dominika and her mother are facing a bleak and uncertain future. That is why she finds herself manipulated into becoming the newest recruit for Sparrow School, a secret intelligence service that trains exceptional young people like her to use their bodies and minds as weapons. After enduring the perverse and sadistic training process, she emerges as the most dangerous Sparrow the program has ever produced. Dominika must now reconcile the person she was with the power she now commands, with her own life and everyone she cares about at risk, including an American CIA agent who tries to convince her he is the only person she can trust.
When talking about what drew her to this story, Jennifer Lawrence said:
“One of the things that drew me into the story, is that it really is a personal story for a character, which I think is pretty rare in terms of the spy genre. They tend to be much more political, or tend to be much more, kind of, plot-driven, and less personal and personal dilemma driven. And it’s one of the things that drew me in, I’m very drawn to kind of stories about sort of isolated, lonely characters trying to survive. And that’s what this story is.”
Red Sparrow was directed by Francis Lawrence (The Hunger Games) and also starring Joel Edgerton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker and Jeremy Irons.
Red Sparrow hits theaters on March 2, 2018.
