Red Sparrow Reviews

The new faux-Hitchcockian thriller Red Sparrow has the dubious honor of both being too overheated and too sterile to have any impact. Granted, Red Sparrow does have the pedigree of A-lister Jennifer Lawrence playing the conflicted lead, as well as the undeniable sense that this is the kind of prestige-striving film for adults that is rarely made or released outside of awards season. But the end result is flaccid, more convinced of its intelligence than it should be, and painfully overlong.

Jennifer Lawrence has aced the steely-faced seductive stare. That much we can tell during the barrage of clips, TV spots, and marketing for her upcoming spy thriller Red Sparrow.

The film hits theaters in a matter of weeks, and with early buzz building for the movie, 20th Century Fox is kicking its marketing into high gear. But can the air of mystery around Francis Lawrence’s Cold War-era film be maintained?

While Black Panther is dominating the box office this weekend, in a couple weeks it will be Jennifer Lawrence‘s turn to be a badass on the big screen in Red Sparrow.

The first screenings of Red Sparrow were held this week, and reactions and reviews are starting to hit the web. While some might be expecting this to be Jennifer Lawrence’s own Atomic Blonde or even an example of what a Black Widow movie might be like, the early reviews indicate that Red Sparrow is neither of those things. The spy thriller from director Francis Lawrence is proving divisive, with some absolutely loving what this movie turned out to be while others thinking it’s an overlong and numbing experience.

Comcast Fox deal

UpdateA report from The Wall Street Journal confirms that Comcast is considering making another bid for Fox, after its initial bid was rejected by the company. Comcast’s original bid, which was in the low $60 billion range, was reportedly higher than Disney’s by 15% but Fox turned it down over antitrust concerns. Our original story continues below.


The Walt Disney Company finalized its acquisition of 21st Century Fox assets back in December, but the Mouse House still has to wait on governmental regulatory approval before the deal actually goes through. In the meantime, everyone at both companies is in limbo, watching and waiting to see what happens.

Now another contender has emerged: a new report suggests that Comcast, the parent company of Universal Pictures and NBC, could swoop in and top Disney’s $66.1 billion bid for the Fox assets that are on the table. That includes the 20th Century Fox film studio (and its library of movies), Fox Searchlight, FX Network, and more. Read about the potential Comcast Fox deal below. Read More »
