Jennifer Lawrence in Red Sparrow

Red Sparrow Trailer #2 (2018) “Take Back Your Life”

I know this is based on a series of novels by Jason Matthews, but if you substitute “Red Sparrow” for “Black Widow” it seems awfully familiar. If Marvel doesn’t kick up its game, this may be as close to a solo Widow film as we ever get.  Read Coming Soon’s full synopsis below.  Red Sparrow is coming March 2, 2018.

Jennifer Lawrence in Red Sparrow

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.

Red Sparrow also stars Joel Edgerton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker and Jeremy Irons.

Francis Lawrence, who previously directed Jennifer Lawrence in the final three Hunger Games movies, directs Red Sparrow from a screenplay by Justin Haythe (Revolutionary Road) based on the book by Jason Matthews. Chernin Entertainment is producing with Steve Zaillian and Garrett Basch is an executive producer.

Red Sparrow arrives in theaters on March 2, 2018.

  1. The old guard is fading. Time is short for BW. Not sure what Disney is waiting for.

    That said, I love Lawrence in almost anything. Look how quickly I’ve forgotten/forgiven Mother. I always let these things go in the end. Life is way too short.

    1. She’s preternaturally talented and still so young. Her talent will let her bust through the walls set in front of most actresses about 10 years from her current age and by the time she’s done, she’s going to have hugely impressive filmography. Tough to say if the Black Widow movie will happen despite the promise what with Disney’s new toys for post-IW. Chris Hemsworth said today he’s open to doing more Thor after IW (which may have been an oops spoiler on his part), but I’d really like to see the adventures of King Thor as part of the MCU, especially after Ragnarok’s success. If I had to guess, I think the X-Men will stay separate for awhile longer, but the FF and their villains especially will get integrated into the MCU in Phase 4. Doom or Galactus is a Thanos-level threat they can build a whole new arc around.

      1. I’m hoping for a complete X Men reboot now, the time was ripe anyway with Jackman’s departure. And I don’t think it will remain separate for long, though it should. These days, the trend is towards synergy.

        But FF will finally, finally get their due. It’s just a shame that people will think they’re a ripoff of Incredibles.
