Jennifer Lawrence is in the business of murder in this intense, sexy new trailer for her upcoming spy thriller Red Sparrow.
The slow-burn trailer opens with Lawrence apprehensively sitting on the edge of a bed in a luxurious hotel room wearing a red sequined gown, as a man's voice instructs her to remove her clothes. Then, the violence begins.
Lawrence stars as Dominika Egorova, a Russian assassin who has been trained by a clandestine government agency to use her sexuality to seduce men and then kill them. After years of black-ops work for her homeland, she finds herself attracted to an American CIA operative (Joel Edgerton), who tries to turn her into a double agent.
"When I was in Moscow, I heard about a program," Edgerton says in voiceover. "Young officers trained to seduce and manipulate. To use their bodies, to use everything. They call them Sparrows."
And, from the looks of it, Dominika might be the deadliest Sparrow of them all.
The tense international spy thriller reunites Lawrence with director Francis Lawrence, who helmed The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and both installments of Mockingjay. The film also stars Mary-Louise Parker and Jeremy Irons.
