Jennifer Lawrence re-teams with Francis Lawrence for the espionage thriller, Red Sparrow, based on the novel by Jason Matthews.
The teaser immediately draws to mind Marvel’s Black Widow, but if Marvel Studios won’t cash in on that idea, other studios will clearly make their own version, albeit R-rated. Francis Lawrence has always displayed a keen visual style, and the the cold world of espionage fits him well, while also providing Jennifer Lawrence an oppurtunity to tackle a specific kind of character, defined by tropes, and make it her own. While the teaser doesn’t give away too much in terms of plot, Red Sparrow definitely looks like a must-see for next year.
Red Sparrow hits theaters on March 2nd, 2018.
