RED SPARROW: Official Trailer & Poster (20th Century FOX)

A female Russian is trained to become an assassin, in this action adventure of Marvel's "BLACK WIDOW", where their first female-led feature film ... no wait, I've got my movies mixed up, haven't I? This is the official trailer for "RED SPARROW"! Did Marvel miss a beat here? :p

STORY: "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."

I had wanted to say "not in the wheelhouse of PopcornX", but I've "John Wick" featured here, so same-same, but different, innit? And of course the basic similarities with "Black Widow" and her "trained assassin school"-angle was too irresistible to not post, alas :p

Based upon the book by Jason Matthews, with screenplay by Justin Haythe, this feature stars Jennifer Lawrence and Joel Edgerton, and is directed by Francis Lawrence. In U.S. Theaters March 2, 2018.
