Red Sparrow Trailer #2


With Marvel seemingly unwilling to give fans a Black Widow solo movie, someone else has gone ahead and beat them to the punch. The upcoming spy thriller Red Sparrow finds Jennifer Lawrence playing a young Russian ballerina recruited into a top secret intelligence program (not unlike Natasha Romanoff), although in this case it is based on a book written by retired CIA agent Jason Matthews. With a supporting cast that includes Joel Edgerton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker, Ciaran Hinds and Jeremy Irons, this definitely has potential even if director Francis Lawrence (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire / Mockingjay, I Am Legend) is a bit of a jobber. Red Sparrow hits theatres on March 2nd; check out the new trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.

    I hate that an actress as talented as Jennifer Lawrence is wasting her time with movies like this. She out grew Hunger Games after the first installment, and X-Men even before that. Is it an indictment against todays movie industry, that there are far more great actresses working today than there are great productions for them to star in?

    Is David O. Russell working on anything?
