The latest spot, “She’s Out of Your League,” for Jennifer Lawrence‘s spy drama Red Sparrow has just dropped. With a screenplay by Justin Hayth based on the Jason Matthews’ novel, Lawrence plays was a young prima donna whose career-ending injury leads her to join a secret spy program where she is trained in the art of seduction and combat. The film reunites the Oscar-winning actress with her Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence.
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.
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.
20th Century Fox has released an official trailer for the movie, which can be found below along with a full description.
Bruce Willis is back as retired government operative Frank Moses along with John Malkovich and Helen Mirren as his fellow aging but still lethal colleagues Marvin and Victoria, respectively, and Mary Louise Parker as his game civilian lady love Sarah in RED 2, the sequel to the 2010 action-comedy that was a box office smash around the world.
The movie won’t hit theater screens until this summer, but Summit Entertainment has nonetheless released the first teaser trailer. You can watch it here below.
Joining the action this time around are Oscar winners Catherine Zeta-Jones and Anthony Hopkins and Byung-hun Lee of I Saw the Devil and the G.I. Joe movies. It looks like once again Frank’s peaceful retired existence is being interrupted by a ton of globe-trotting mayhem and dodging multiple assassination attempts. Thus the time has come for Mirren, also an Oscar honoree, to break out the heavy artillery and Malkovich (MALKOVICH!!) to indulge in some of that crowd-pleasing loony schtick that made his character such a hoot to watch in the original.

16:10pm Screen 3 in the basement of the Cornerhouse, the missus and I alone in the dark, a screen no bigger than 15×10 feet, making this feel like a slideshow presentation and the film starts in greyscale, in a smoky basement cafe in 1955 San Fransisco…
In 1955, a 29-year-old unpublished poet realised the American Dream in a four-part poem called Howl, a poem that would become an obscene ode to the struggle of his displaced lost generation, post WWII when the creation of ‘teenager’ also created a whole slew of new problems for the new transition between child and man.
“What would my father think of Howl?” Ginsberg wondered, a typical notion of self examination and the constant need to prove to parents that, yes, you will find a job, even if it is not in their footsteps. Ginsberg would soon find out two years later in 1957 that it isn’t just what his father thinks, but the general public when the poem became infamous when his publisher was thrust into a court trial for the distribution of obscene materials.
