If Disney/Marvel made a realistic Black Widow movie, it would be Red Sparrow. Literally, this is spot on.
Jennifer Lawerence plays a Russian assassin/spy (with a very convincing accent) in this film based on the Jason Mathews novel of the same name.
I’m excited to check this one out. There’s a great cast with an interesting premise. A premise that could easily go one of two ways: extremely predictable or the type of psychological thriller that keeps you guessing right until the credits. Obviously, I’m hoping it’s the latter.
Red Sparrow releases March 2nd and is rated R, most likely for everything.
Prima ballerina Dominika Egorova faces a bleak and uncertain future after she suffers an injury that ends her career. She soon turns to Sparrow School, a secret intelligence service that trains exceptional young people to use their minds and bodies as weapons. Egorova emerges as the most dangerous Sparrow after completing the sadistic training process. As she comes to terms with her new abilities, Dominika meets a CIA agent who tries to convince her that he is the only person she can trust.
