Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence gets to grips with an unlikely co-star, a BMW 7 Series, in Red Sparrow, the new spy thriller from 20th Century Fox Film.

In the film, Lawrence plays Dominika Egorova, a prima ballerina with Russia’s Bolshoi Ballet. When she suffers a career-ending injury, Dominika and her mother face a bleak and uncertain future.

She then 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.

Lawrence: prima ballerina to deadly spy

After the training, she emerges as the most dangerous Sparrow the programme 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 (Joel Edgerton) who tries to convince her he is the only person she can trust.

The cast also includes British actor and Oscar-winner Jeremy Irons as a two-faced Russian general; Oscar-nominated actress Charlotte Rampling as chief instructor of the Sparrow School; Matthias Schoenaert as head of the Russian Secret Service and Mary-Louise Parker as a US informant.

The BMW 7 Series accompanies Dominika on her journey from elegant and graceful prima ballerina to self-assured secret agent.

The Beamer reappears at key moments throughout the film, including the scene where Dominika is driven to the secret Sparrow School for the first time.

The drive through the snow-covered Russian landscape, assisted by the BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system, symbolises the transition from Dominikas’s past to her mysterious, but exciting future.

Head of Brand Communications BMW Uwe Dreher said he was delighted that film-makers had chosen the 7 Series for such a prestigious production.

He said: “We were excited about this suspenseful adaptation of the bestselling novel Red Sparrow from the beginning. Jennifer Lawrence as Dominika embodies an elegant and strong agent. The BMW 7 Series and its positioning suit her character perfectly.”

Red Sparrow premiered in Washington DC last week and is scheduled for release on March 1.
