Jennifer Lawrence is many things, but one thing we have yet to see her be is a full-fledged spy. And it just so happens that she is starring in Red Sparrow, where she plays as a Russian spy forced into the world of espionage in order to protect the mother she loves so dearly.
Now Fox has released the latest trailer for the film, which reveals a little more of the plot and the circumstances that have led Lawrence’s character to becoming neck-deep in the spy game. Check out the latest trailer below.
And this time, we will get it right. Or at least we can hope that Simon Kinberg gets it right as he makes his directorial debut with X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which as you could have guessed, will be a loose adaptation of the “Dark Phoenix Saga” comics storyline written by Chris Claremont. Though, this wouldn’t be the first time that the X-Men franchise has attempted Dark Phoenix in a film. In 2006, X-Men: The Last Stand tried to use a resurrected Jean Grey (then played by Famke Janssen) as the Dark Phoenix who was being manipulated by Magneto (then played by Ian McKellen).
Now with the film franchise’s timeline being rebooted, we can look forward to some wrongs being righted. We are getting our first look at Dark Phoenix, which includes our very first peek at Jessica Chastain‘s villainous character. Check them out below.
Written & Directed by Darren Aronofsky

*** Note – no spoilers below for Mother!, but I also recommend that you DO NOT research the film or look it up on IMDb until after you see it. ***
With all the subtlety of a sledgehammer to the face, Darren Aronofsky brings you Mother! The film stars Oscar winners Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem as a married couple living and working out of a huge house in the middle of woods. He is a poet dealing with crippling writer’s block and she is working effortlessly to get the house in order. Soon they are visited by guests seemingly out of nowhere. A doctor arrives, followed by his wife and later their sons. Soon the whole house is full and while Bardem seems to revel in the attention and adulation, Lawrence grows quickly worried and fearful. And that’s pretty much all I can tell you about the plot of Mother! without spoiling anything. The plot is not what matters here. Instead, let me segue by telling you that about 100 minutes into this 2+ hour film, a man sitting way back in the theater threw a full soda at the screen, showering us as it flew by, before storming out with his female companion. Yep, Mother! is THAT kinda movie.
The latest from Darren Aronofsky, mother!, starring Jennifer Lawrence arrives in theaters this week. But it’s not the only Lawrence movie coming soon.
Early next year comes a movie titled Red Sparrow, which stars Lawrence as a ballerina who, after a serious injury, ends up in a school which trains its students to use their bodies and minds as weapons. It’s based on author Jason Matthews‘ book of the same name.
