Is "Red Sparrow" a winner?

Jennifer Lawrence as a former ballerina turned Russian intelligence officer? Joel Edgerton as the CIA agent that falls in love with her? This spy thriller, directed by Francis Lawrence, also stars Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker, and Jeremy Irons.  Based on the popular novel by former CIA operative Jason Matthews, the film re-teams J-Law with her Hunger Games director Lawrence. The film has also been stamped with an R rating for strong violence, torture, sexual content, language and some graphic nudity, the creatives are going all in with this movie.
I'll be watching "Red Sparrow" next week and the fact that a screening is happening tonight in Los Angeles and the embargo is lifted tomorrow says a lot about the confidence 20th Century Fox might be having for this J-Law spooker, which only opens on the 23rd. Director Lawrence has sent a message to press for us to keep “all major plot points including the ending secret so other viewers may also enjoy the movie to the fullest.” Amen to that.
