Jennifer Lawrence is back. After the challenging and unbelivable appearance in Mother! this A-list bombshell is not done surprising audiences just yet. Playing Russian spy, this is set to be one sexy spy thriller with plenty of popcorn munching action to go around. Maybe this is the flick Marvel fans have been waiting for since Disney won't give us that Black Widow solo outing!

Red Sparrow releases in cinemas March 2.

Dominika Egorova (Jennifer Lawrence) 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 (Joel Edgerton), 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. 

Based on the book by former CIA officer Jason Matthews, “Red Sparrow” reunites Jennifer Lawrence with her “Hunger Games” director, Francis Lawrence with Joel Edgerton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Jeremy Irons, and Mary Louise Parker rounding out the cast.
