At the rate Jennifer Lawrence is turning out movies, you really have to wonder when she has time to even sleep.
This isn’t to say she is turning out bad movies, quite the contrary in most cases, but you really do have to wonder how she finds time to relax.
While her new film mother! is hitting wide release this week, the first trailer for her new spy thriller, Red Sparrow, hit the internet on Thursday morning. Here is the official synopsis.
Dominika Egorova is many things.
A devoted daughter determined to protect her mother at all costs.
A prima ballerina whose ferocity has pushed her body and mind to the absolute limit.
A master of seductive and manipulative combat.
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.
I have to say, this sounds a lot like Black Widow’s origin from the Marvel films. Which makes me wonder even more why a solo film hasn’t happened for that character yet.
Red Sparrow is due to hit theaters March 2, 2018.
