Jennifer Lawrence goes noir in first 'Red Sparrow' Trailer

It's taking a nod from a different Marvel hero.

The first teaser trailer for 20th Century Fox's Red Sparrow has been unveiled, offering a glimpse into Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence's next action venture. The film is based on a book by Jason Matthews but, if you know the Black Widow's comics history, you can't help but be reminded of the Avengers' femme fatale while this trailer rolls. She's then seen in a black swimsuit following a Central Intelligence Agency spy played by Joel Edgerton at a pool and then again as a blonde with a short wig, somewhat resembling Charlize Theron's look in "Atomic Blonde".

Trained in the arts of seduction, manipulation, and combat, Egorova emerges from the school as the most unsafe Sparrow of them all.

Interestingly, she starts off as prima ballerina Dominika Egorova who has to stop dancing due to an injury. Forced to use her body as a weapon, she's one of the Russian security service's biggest secrets, trained as a seductress through a dehumanising process. The film also stars Joel Edgerton, Jeremey Irons and Charlotte Rampling. He is not related to his leading lady but shares a close connection after directing her in the final three Hunger Games movies. 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.

The movie opens on March 2, 2018.
