Jennifer Lawrence is a ballerina who becomes a Russian spy trained to use her body and mind as weapons in the first trailer for Red Sparrow. The 20th Century Fox production reunites the actress with Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Mockingjay director Francis Lawrence. The script is by Justin Haythe (A Cure for Wellness) and Eric Warren Singer (American Hustle). Rooney Mara and David Fincher were at one point attached to the project.

When young ballerina Dominika Egorova (Lawrence) suffers a career-ending injury, a misfortune that threatens both her livelihood and that of her mother, she finds herself pressured into joining a secret Russian intelligence service that trains gifted young people to use their bodies and minds as deadly weapons. On her first mission, Egorova meets a CIA agent (Joel Edgerton) who makes her question everything she has been taught to believe.
