20th Century Fox has released the second official trailer for Red Sparrow. Directed by Francis Lawrence (Catching Fire, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and Part 2) and stars Jennifer Lawrence stars as a young Ballerina Dominika Egorova. Dominika and her mother are facing an uncertain future after a career-ending injury, until she is recruited by a secret intelligence service known as Red Sparrow, where she trains to use her body and mind as a weapon.
Jennifer Lawrence hasn’t had a solo franchise since The Hunger Games franchise ended a handful of years ago, but that looks to ending. It’s hard to not see glimpses of Marvel’s Black Widow character in this new trailer, but as I’ve said, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Lawrence’s Dominika is tested, as her loyalties are split by her Russian handlers and the CIA agent (Joel Edgerton) who seems to be offering a way out for her and her mother. The trailer does a pretty good job of giving us the characters origin on fast forward, as well as teasing us with some intense super-spy action games. Let’s just hope the trailer didn’t reveal too much of the story, leaving us a bit underwhelmed when we see it.
Check out the new trailer below. Also head down to the comments let me know your thoughts on the new trailer! What do you think of it?

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.
