We’re creeping up on the release date of Jennifer Lawrence’s new movie “Red Sparrow,” and I’m really starting to think it might be the best movie of 2018.

The plot of the film, according to IMDB, is, “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.”

This movie looks awesome to me. Lawrence is one of the best actresses in all of Hollywood, and she’s joined by Joel Edgerton in the cast. That’s the definition of a power lineup. Both of them are outstanding at their craft.

Add the fact the plot is about Lawrence being a Russian assassin, and the money to buy a ticket to this movie was taken out of my wallet so fast that it will make your head spin.

I’m a sucker for movies that involve spies and Russians. I’ve been obsessed my whole life with content of that nature.

“Red Sparrow” comes out March 2, and I hope like hell it lives up to all the hype. Only time will tell, but I can promise you that I’ll be front and center when it comes out.
