We have been waiting for a Black Widow film since she first showed up in Iron Man 2. We will probably continue to wait for it, but we are getting the next best thing. Nearly the same story, just outside of the MCU, and starring Jennifer Lawrence, as FOX has released the first trailer for RED SPARROW. Check it out below.
The story follows Dominika Egorova, played by Jennifer Lawrence, is many things: A devoted daughter determined to protect her mother at all costs; A prima ballerina whose ferocity has pushed her body and mind to the absolute limit; A master of seductive and manipulative combat. When she suffers a career-ending injury, Dominika and her mother are facing a bleak and uncertain future. That is why she finds herself manipulated into becoming the newest recruit for Sparrow School, a secret intelligence service that trains exceptional young people like her to use their bodies and minds as weapons. After enduring the perverse and sadistic training process, she emerges as the most dangerous Sparrow the program has ever produced. 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.
