Happy Red Sparrow day! The film is officially in theatres as of today. An R-rated film directed by Francis Lawrence, also known as the director for the last three Hunger Games films, stars Jennifer Lawrence as a Russian spy recruited by the American government to work for them. In an action-packed film, the film has received mixed reviews from Rotten Tomatoes with 51% approval with the consensus set as “Red Sparrow’s tense, character-driven story — elevated by outstanding work from Jennifer Lawrence — help this topical spy thriller overcome its somewhat uneven narrative.”[1] It also stars Joel Edgerton, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker, Jeremy Irons, and Matthias Schoenaerts.

On Thursday, it earned 1.2$ million. BoxOfficeMojo predicts it will earn 19.3$ million in its release weekend:

Fox’s Red Sparrow brought in $1.2 million from Thursday night previews last night. While preview screenings don’t necessarily foreshadow a film’s overall weekend performance, this could be an early indication of an opening that falls below expectation as it is shy of both the $1.8 million Ghost in the Shell brought in before opening with $18.7 million and the $1.52 million for Atomic Blonde ahead of its $18.3 million debut. […] Looking at a second place finish is Fox’s Red Sparrow, which re-teams The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence and director Francis Lawrence in an R-rated adaptation of the first book in Jason Matthews’ trilogy of novels. Debuting in 3,056 theaters, Fox is anticipating a performance in the mid-to-high teens, and our analysis suggests an opening more on the higher end, if not possibly topping $20 million. Source

Luca Guadagnino, currently drumming up Oscar buzz for the ravishing “Call Me by Your Name,” will direct Jennifer Lawrence in “Burial Rites,” Variety has learned. Lawrence will produce, as well as star in the true-crime drama. TriStar Pictures, a division of Sony Pictures, has worldwide rights to the picture.

The film draws on Hannah Kent’s 2013 novel of the same name, and centers on Agnes Magnusdottir (Lawrence), the last woman to be publicly executed in Iceland in 1830. Agnes was sentenced to death for killing two men and setting fire to their home. The story takes place as Agnes awaits confirmation of her death sentence by the high court, a period of time that finds her reluctantly forging emotional and romantic bonds, while reflecting on her supposed crimes.

Allison Shearmur, an executive who oversaw development and production of “The Hunger Games” at Lionsgate, and Justine Ciarrocchi will produce with Lawrence. Shearmur most recently produced “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” and is also producing the upcoming “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”

Gary Ross and Jerry Kalajian will executive produce. At one point, it had looked like Ross would direct the film, potentially reuniting him with Lawrence, the star of “The Hunger Games.” An earlier iteration of the project had been set up at Lionsgate. TriStar president Hannah Minghella and Shary Shirazi, a creative executive, will oversee the production for TriStar Pictures. Source
