Editor’s Note: This trailer has a lot to digest including sexual violence, general violence, violence against women, and a bit more. Watch with caution.
Red Sparrow has a magnificent cast list, but a pretty dark subject matter. The film star sJennifer Lawrence, Joel Edgerton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker and Jeremy Irons in a spy thriller that looks frankly super messed up.
Here’s the official synopsis from 21st Century Fox on the film:
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.
Red Sparrow comes to theaters March 2nd, 2018.
