Jennifer Lawrence Is a Deadly Seductress in First 'Red Sparrow' Trailer

This looks so intense - in the best way!

Jennifer Lawrence doesn't say a single word in the trailer for Red Sparrow, but she certainly leaves an impression.

Lawrence is Dominika Egorova, a prima ballerina who seeks an alternate career after being injured, and becomes one of the risky agents to emerge from "Sparrow School", the secret service training school.

If it sounds a tad familiar (if ludicrous), many fans might be forgiven for confusing the plot with the remarkably similar back story of Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow from the Avengers movies. What more could you want from a spy thriller?

Lawrence's character goes through the school's "perverse and sadistic" training process, the film's description reads, and becomes "the most risky Sparrow the program has ever produced".

The film reteams Lawrence with Francis Lawrence (no relation, apparently), who directed Catching Fire and Mockingjay, and features a strong cast outside of J-Law and Edgerton. Watch the first, intense trailer above.

Official Synopsis: When she suffers a career-ending injury, Dominika and her mother are facing a bleak and uncertain future.

Recruited by the secret and sinister Sparrow School, she becomes a highly trained and lethal weapon. Dominika must now reconcile the person she was with the power she now commands, with her own life and everyone she cares about at risk, including an American CIA agent who tries to convince her he is the only person she can trust.

Red Sparrow is set to be released on March 2, 2018.
