When we are trapped in a difficult spot, we have two options to choose from – do or die. But for Jennifer Lawrence, it’s either “die or become a sparrow”.
Jennifer Lawrence is undoubtedly one of the most versatile and commendable actresses in Hollywood. From ‘Passenger’, ‘The Hunger Games’ series, ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ to the ‘X-Men series’ and the recently released ‘Mother!’; Lawrence has proved her mettle with each movie and gave us a sneak-peek into the various challenging roles she will be taking up in her upcoming movies.
Last year or should we say a few months back, Lawrence teased us with her badass Russian spy avatar for her upcoming movie ‘Red Sparrow’.

Our jaws literally dropped to the floor when we saw her mercilessly strangling a man in the teaser, and now that its full length trailer has been released, one can only imagine how difficult it is for us to contain our excitement.
‘Red Sparrow’ is a story about a Russian ballerina, Domonika Egorova, who transforms into a dangerous assassin who uses her skills to seduce, manipulate and kill her targets. On one hand where we were starting to fall in love with Dominika, we realize that there’s someone who has actually ‘been there, done that’ and even went on to become one of the most popular Avengers in the Marvel universe.
If you are a true Marvel fan, you will know who we are talking about – Black Widow aka Natasha Romanova. We understand, it’s unfair to draw comparisons between the two, but when we have characters that resembles so strongly with each other, one can’t help but think of this movie as a ‘Black Widow’ spinoff that we always wished for.
Although we loved Scarlett Johansson as Natasha, after watching Lawrence’s badass avatar; our faith is wavering a little bit.
i can’t believe we’re getting the red room origin story of black widow….but for some reason with jennifer lawrence?

WRITER 1: What can we title this so nobody suspects it’s just a Black Widow knock-off?
WRITER 2: … Red… Sparrow?
STUDIO: Here is a check with many zeroes. https://t.co/vi7dCj3ZHK

‘Red Sparrow’ is releasing on March 2, 2018 and will also feature Joel Edgerton, Jeremy Irons, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Charlotte Rampling. Honestly, we feel it will take immense discipline and agent-like skills to be patient and wait for this movie to release.
