The actress plays a former Russian ballerina forced into an intelligence programme – “Sparrow School” – where she is trained in psychological manipulation and how to use sex as a weapon.

In the new trailer we see her committing several gruesome murders in various disguises, as well as beginning a relationship with a CIA agent played by Joel Edgerton, who tries to convince her to become a double agent.

Red Sparrow is based on the novel by Jason Matthews and directed by Francis Lawrence (who worked with his leading lady on the last three Hunger Games films).

The film also stars Matthias Schoenaerts, Mary-Louise Parker, Jeremy Irons, Ciarán Hinds, and Joely Richardson.
