Jennifer Lawrence is the ultimate femme fatale in first Red Sparrow trailer

Oscar victor Jennifer Lawrence stars as a deadly Russian spy in the first trailer for Fox's Red Sparrow, an action-thriller based on the 2013 novel by ex-CIA operative Jason Matthews.

Directed by Francis Lawrence, director of all three sequels to The Hunger Games, Red Sparrow is an adaptation of the book of the same name by author Jason Matthews, a former Central Intelligence Agency operative who used his knowledge of espionage and clandestine activities to inform the writing of the story. It looks like the duo are set to present another interesting piece of work together. Be it the seductress, or the straight soldier/asset. The movie focuses on a young Russian woman, Dominika (Lawrence), who joins the Sparrow program, a secret service that trains her into becoming a powerful weapon. Dominika trains to become the best, and one of the most unsafe of them all.
