Wondering why times are missing?

Red Sparrow

Comic book readers may recognize this as a Xerox copy of the Black Widow's origin story. Seems a Russian ballet dancer (Jennifer Lawrence, who should certainly not be affecting a Russian accent) is recruited into a secret "school" where she's trained to use her body as a weapon and forced to work as an international assassin. Joel Edgerton (Warrior) and Matthias Schoenaerts (The Danish Girl) costar. There's plenty of sex and espionage, but much of it feels alternately trashy and old-fashioned. 139 minutes R.
