After a brutal training, Egorova becomes the most effective, lethal Sparrow to come from the school. A prima ballerina whose ferocity has pushed her body and mind to the absolute limit. However, with this recent trailer focusing on Jennifer Lawrence's character, Dominika Egorova, let's see if this is something we're interested in beyond the obvious similarity to our favorite Marvel spy.
It will be interesting to see whether or not Francis Lawrence can pull off another female assassin movie that we haven't already seen before - but we do have high hopes. "A master of seductive and manipulative combat". After much torture and the "sadistic training process" of the Sparrow School, Dominika comes out the most risky Sparrow the school has ever produced. As she comes to terms with her new abilities, Dominika meets a Central Intelligence Agency agent who tries to convince her that he is the only person she can trust.
A attractive young woman with considerable ballerina training is transformed by her nefarious Russian superiors (through a covert-ops program) to be a world-class assassin and spy. When she develops feelings for one of her targets, a C.I.A. agent (Joel Edgerton), she is tempted to become a traitor to Mother Russia.
I like that this seems to be a story of a woman with her own agenda, rather than loyalty to a cause, or country. When she's recruited by a covert espionage organization called "Sparrow School", she has no choice but to agree. Although her Russian accent might be a little shaky, her ability to kill a man has apparently not dimmed since The Hunger Games sailed off into its conclusion. After curiously withholding the Hollywood star's immediately recognizable voice for the entirety of the first trailer, Lawrence finally gets to speak her mind in the new official Red Sparrow trailer - and out comes a serviceable Russian accent.
