Jennifer Lawrence Stars as Ruthless Spy in Chilling Trailer for ‘Red Sparrow’

Jennifer Lawrence is back as a Russian spy/former CIA operative in this thriller, based on the novel Red Sparrow by Jason Matthews.


The story follows Dominika Egorova, a young woman forced to become a spy in order to get medical treatment for her mother. Matthews’ novel is said to provide “accurate, richly detailed renderings of anxiety-filled tasks conducted daily by intelligence operatives around the world.”


The trailer, also starring Jeremy Irons, Joel Edgerton, and Charlotte Rampling, looks pretty intense. Check it out! As soon as he appears, though, I spend the rest of the time being kind of creeped out by how much I think Joel Edgerton looks like Jon Voight, specifically Jon Voight when he was in Holes, which was the first time I encountered him and which bestowed upon me the gift of a lifelong fear of Jon Voight.

None of my coworkers agreed with me on the Jon Voight point, but it is a hill I’m willing to die on. Anyway, enjoy the trailer.
