Many of you have been looking forward to this one. The BBFC have rated the first teaser trailer for The Hunger Games franchise director Francis Lawrence’s spy thriller Red Sparrow starring Jennifer Lawrence – no doubt in time for Kingsman: The Golden Circle‘s release in two weeks time (or it could play with Darren Aronofsky’s mother! – also starring Lawrence – next week). Given the runtime, it’s likely to be the same teaser as shown at CinemaCon back in March – reactions to which we include below.
We expect more information to arrive soon, so make sure to stay tuned and we will update when it does.
Dominika Egorova is drafted against her will to become a “sparrow,” a trained seductress in the Russian security service. Dominika learns to use her body as a weapon, but struggles to maintain her sense of self during the dehumanizing training process. Finding her power in an unfair system, she emerges as one of the program’s strongest assets. Her first target is Nate Nash, a CIA officer who handles the agency’s most sensitive infiltration of Russian intelligence. The two young operatives fall into a spiral of attraction and deception, which threatens their careers, allegiances and the security of both countries.
Starring Jenifer Lawrence, Joel Edgerton, Matthias Shoenearts, Jeremy Irons, Mary-Louise Parker and Charlotte Rampling, Red Sparrow is released in the U.S. and the UK on March 2, 2018.
