Jennifer Lawrence plays a lethal temptress in sexy 'Red Sparrow' trailer

It's taking a nod from a different Marvel hero. 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. As we can assume from the first scene in the trailer, Lawrence's character seems apprehensive about her line of work.

When you're looking at the world of trailers, especially those that run around 90 seconds, you don't find many that feature 30 seconds of the film's star sitting nearly perfectly still.

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.

The North Korean gross domestic product (GDP) in 2016 was $28.50 billion, according to the Bank of Korea in Seoul. The country is also developing solid-fuel missiles that could be fired from land mobile launchers or submarines.

Based on the book of the same name by former Central Intelligence Agency officer Jason Matthews, Red Sparrow reunites Lawrence with director Francis Lawrence, with Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker and Jeremy Irons all also starring. Of course, Lawrence has already proven her butt-kicking chops thanks to The Hunger Games and X-Men, so she should be right at home here.

The actress plays the driven and ruthless ballerina Dominika Egorova whose career is ended by a shocking 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. Dominika emerges from this sadistic training process as the most unsafe Sparrow of them all.

Red Sparrow opens on March 2, 2018.
