Red Sparrow Trailer #2: Jennifer Lawrence Is an Assassin on the Run

The new trailer for the film also incorporates footage of Charlotte Rampling as the head of the Sparrow School and Jeremy Irons as a Russian general who informs Dominika, "You are better at this than any of us".

The synopsis of the film reads: "When she suffers a career-ending injury, Dominika and her mother are facing a bleak and uncertain future". After much torture and the "sadistic training process" of the Sparrow School, Dominika comes out the most unsafe Sparrow the school has ever produced.

Jennifer Lawrence must have liked working with director Francis Lawrence on the last three Hunger Games movies, because they quickly reunited for another movie based on a bestselling book, this one being Jason Matthews' 2013 spy novel Red Sparrow.

Or tend to be much more, kind of, plot-driven, and less personal and personal dilemma driven. That said, the trailer seems to cast her allegiances in doubt and there may not be anyone who is willing to trust this Sparrow, so she'll have to find her own way to survive. Powerful people recruit her and force her to undergo rigorous training.
