‘In Darkness’ Trailer: Natalie Dormer Tries to Escape Killers She Can’t See — Watch
Natalie Dormer took an onscreen hiatus following her Summer 2016 “Game of Thrones” exit. Next month, however, she stars in both Amazon’s limited series “Picnic at Hanging Rock” and a film that marks her first foray into screenwriting.

In Darkness” will introduce audiences to Dormer’s Sofia, a blind London pianist and the accidental eavesdropper on her upstairs neighbor’s (Emily Ratajkowski of “Gone Girl”) murder. Law enforcement first deems Veronique’s death a suicide, but at least one investigator has his doubts. The trailer opens with Sofia answering his questions, and a flashback confirms that Veronique — the daughter of an alleged war criminal — knew she was in trouble: She slipped Sofia what appears to be a key during an elevator ride.

Soon the criminals realize they must stop Sofia from revealing what she knows. During their hunt, Sofia’s anxiety of being unable to identify her foes increases from

‘Red Sparrow’ Review: Dir. Francis Lawrence (2018)

Red Sparrow review: Jennifer Lawrence and her Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence head to Russia for this twisty tale of espionage and double-crosses, a mildly entertaining though incredibly brutal feature from the off.

Red Sparrow review by Paul Heath.

Red Sparrow review

I spy with my little eye, something involving the unfaltering Jennifer Lawrence. This is Red Sparrow, an relatively engaging action movie-cum spy thriller in which the accomplished actress play a former dancer, devoted daughter and manipulated pawn; a film promising oodles of suspense from the get go and a plethora of cinematic talent. The cast it delivers on, the suspense? Well, not so much.

Lawrence is Dominika Egorova, a prima ballerina at the famous Bolshoi in Moscow; a young woman with the world quite literally at her feet, who then suffers a horrific, career-ending injury on stage during a sell-out performance. As a result, with Dominika no longer able to perform,

Jennifer Lawrence Defends Her Red Sparrow Nude Scenes

Jennifer Lawrence Defends Her Red Sparrow Nude Scenes
Actress Jennifer Lawrence brought her new film Red Sparrow to the Big Apple for its New York City premiere earlier this week, where she opened up about her nude scenes in the R-rated thriller. The actress revealed that these scenes were empowering for her, especially in the wake of her 2014 cell phone hack where her nude photos were leaked onto the internet. Here's what she had to say about how the nude scenes in Red Sparrow helped her get over the hack.

"The insecurity and fear of being judged for getting nude, what I went through, should that dictate decisions I make for the rest of my life? This movie changed that and I didn't even realize how important changing that mentality was until it was done. But I also really challenged myself in ways that I never really had before. The foreign accent. The dancing. It was really taking on a very different leaf.

'Red Sparrow' Review: Jennifer Lawrence's Russian Thriller Is One Long 'Nyet'

"You sent me to whore school," says an indignant Bolshoi ballerina-turned-spy Dominika Egorova (Jennifer Lawrence to her less than caring uncle (Matthias Schoenaerts) in Red Sparrow, and it’s dialogue like that, with thicker-than-borscht Russian accents yet, that gets your hopes up for a trashy international-intrigue funfest. Consider them dashed. This piece of cinema du airport thriller starring Lawrence as a dancer who goes full Mata Hari after suffering a career-ending accident on stage, is a punishingly long (133 minutes), shamelessly shallow downer that makes the mistake of taking itself oh-so-seriously.

Movie Review – Red Sparrow (2018)

Red Sparrow, 2018.

Directed by Francis Lawrence.

Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Joel Edgerton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Joely Richardson, Charlotte Rampling and Jeremy Irons.

Synopsis:

After a career-ending injury, a budding prima ballerina finds herself unable to pay for her mother’s life saving medical treatment. Her uncle, a high-ranking government official, recruits her to Russian intelligence as a Sparrow, using charm and manipulation to extract information. After her training, her first job is to seduce a CIA agent, who knows the identity of a highly placed mole in the Russian government.

It’s cold. The Beast From The East has swept into the UK and, along with it, comes Francis Lawrence’s spy adventure, Red Sparrow. A cold-blooded film with ice running through its veins, but with a red hot turn from Jennifer Lawrence that takes her well outside her comfort zone.

She’s Dominika, a dancer at the Bolshoi with more than

‘Red Sparrow’ Featurettes, Clips and TV Spots Tease The Spy-Thriller

20th Century Fox has released a boatload of new featurettes, clips, and TV spots for ‘Red Sparrow‘, starring Jennifer Lawrence. The film reunites Lawrence with ‘Hunger Games‘ director Francis Lawrence for a cold war spy-thriller that looks rather intriguing. Many have jokingly referred to the film as the unofficial Black Widow spinoff, due to it’s similarities with that character’s origin. Although the film is still a few weeks away from hitting theaters across the country, the film has already screened for critics, and the response has been…divisive to say the least.

The movie looks fine to me, I could really take it or leave it at this point, but the one thing I’m still kind of hung up on, however, is Lawrence’s awful accent in all of the material we’ve seen so far. Either way, all of these featurettes, clips, and TV spots do

Second Opinion – Red Sparrow (2018)

Red Sparrow, 2018.

Directed by Francis Lawrence.

Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Joel Edgerton, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker, Ciarán Hinds, Matthias Schoenaerts, Jeremy Irons, and Joely Richardson.

Synopsis:

Ballerina Dominika Egorova is recruited to ‘Sparrow School,’ a Russian intelligence service where she is forced to use her body as a weapon. But her first mission, targeting a CIA agent, threatens to unravel the security of both nations.

Francis Lawrence’s Red Sparrow is being marketed as some Kgb Kingsman flick with Atomic Blonde undertones – or, even better, a snipe on Marvel’s Black Widow plans – but this Jason Matthews adaptation is none of the above (quite assertively). Maybe something between Hitchcock and Verhoeven, but never as deceptive or shocking. Expect sparse action inserts, glum psychological abuse and vastly more beatings for Jennifer Lawrence than mother! exploited.

Movie Review – Red Sparrow (2018)

Red Sparrow, 2018.

Directed by Francis Lawrence.

Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Joel Edgerton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker, Ciarán Hinds, Bill Camp, Joely Richardson, Kristof Konrad, Douglas Hodge, Sergei Polunin, Sakina Jaffrey, Nicole O’Neill, David Z. Miller, Makar Zaporozhskiy, Sasha Frolova, Joel de la Fuente, Thekla Reuten, Sergej Onopko, and Jeremy Irons

Synopsis:

Ballerina Dominika Egorova is recruited to ‘Sparrow School’ a Russian intelligence service where she is forced to use her body as a weapon. But her first mission, targeting a CIA agent, threatens to unravel the security of both nations.

Red Sparrow backs the ideology that all humans are a puzzle piece and that once one comes to understand what an individual is missing, a significant other can fill that void and make them whole, attaining full control in the process. In other words, this game of espionage involving Russians and American is more fascinatingly about the psychological

Film Review: Jennifer Lawrence in ‘Red Sparrow’

Film Review: Jennifer Lawrence in ‘Red Sparrow’
In pumped-up espionage potboilers like “Salt” or “Atomic Blonde,” Angelina Jolie and Charlize Theron have gone through the motions of imitating male action stars at their most kick-ass grandiose. They’re slickly “empowered” women, yet it’s hard to distinguish that power from the thriller-video decadence of 21st-century action filmmaking.

In the elegantly tense and absorbing “Red Sparrow,” on the other hand, Jennifer Lawrence portrays a Russian spy who’s a cunningly desperate human being — or, at least, enough of one that each scene rotates around the choices she makes, the way she appraises and seizes the destiny of the moment, playing a spy as someone who acts out a role, but does so by acting as little as possible. Lawrence, in this movie, shows you what true screen stardom is all about. She cues each scene to a different mood, leaving the audience in a dangling state of discovery. We’re on her side,
