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.

New Hunger Games Trailer is Out and It’s Super Depressing

If the new trailer for the finale of the Hunger Games film saga is any indication, the stakes will be at their highest. Rather than focus on the full-scale war in Panem or the enemies around every corner, the Mockingjay Part 2 trailer flashes back to some tender moments between Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and her sister Prim (Willow Shields). Get ready to shed some tears, District 13 faithful.

The trailer’s title is “For Prim,” and though we won’t spoil anything for those who have only seen the movies and not read Suzanne Collins‘ original books, it makes it very clear that there’s going to be a focus on Prim. The video description reads, “moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.”

#Unite and prepare for the movie’s nationwide release on November 20th.
