Francis Lawrence's Red Sparrow Starring Jennifer Lawrence Gets New Trailer and Poster

20th Century Fox has released a new trailer for Red Sparrow featuring Academy Award victor Jennifer Lawrence.

Whether Red Sparrow can differentiate itself from its obvious fictional predecessors remains to be seen, especially since the project seems extremely indebted to Marvel's preexisting character (who was even trained in a "red room"!).

Dominika Egorova (Lawrence) is a Sparrow, a weapon "in the global struggle for power". Lawrence's next movie is something very different-it's an espionage thriller titled Red Sparrow in which she plays a deadly Russian assassin. A devoted daughter determined to protect her mother at all costs.

Once a prima ballerina, she suffered an injury that dismantled her career.

After completing the training process she becomes the most risky Sparrow the program has ever created. She also begins a relationship with a Central Intelligence Agency agent played by Joel Edgerton, who tries to convince her to become a double agent. Audiences responded to Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen in Hunger Games because she was a plucky survivor who ultimately became a hero in a larger sense. I just thought, 'I'll never do that again.
