20th Century Fox has just dropped the trailer for the dark spy thriller Red Sparrow, starring Jennifer Lawrence.

Below is the official synopsis for the film:

“Dominika Egorova 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.”

A couple months back, we saw a teaser for the movie. There was very little shown in that teaser, but moviegoers couldn’t shake off the feeling that it felt an awful lot like what we could expect from a standalone Black Widow film. If you were one of those people, then this trailer will do nothing to dissuade you from that. In fact, this brand-new look at the film reinforces that whole idea, and we couldn’t be more interested in how the film turns out.

Red Sparrow hits theaters on March 2, 2018.
