January is now almost over, which means the bad movies (for the most part) are out of the way and we can dive deep into some film we’ve been waiting months for. Both Marvel’s Black Panther and Red Sparrow, which stars Jennifer Lawrence, are two of the more exciting movies coming out in the next month or so. We’ve seen the trailers, posters, images and more, and as each of the release dates draw closer, the time for TV spots is now upon us.
As I always try to do with TV spot posts, beware as you watch them as they act as mini trailers. And mini trailers means the possibility of new footage, which could also mean some new shots you may not want to see. So before you click play as soon as possible, just remember I warned you ahead of time. But let’s be real, you’re probably already watching.
Release date: February 16th.
Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
Release date: March 2nd.
Dominika Egorova (Jennifer Lawrence) is drafted against her will to become a “sparrow,” a trained seductress in the Russian security service. Dominika learns to use her body as a weapon, but struggles to maintain her sense of self during the dehumanizing training process. Finding her power in an unfair system, she emerges as one of the program’s strongest assets. Her first target is Nate Nash (Joel Edgerton), a CIA officer who handles the agency’s most sensitive infiltration of Russian intelligence. The two young operatives fall into a spiral of attraction and deception, which threatens their careers, allegiances and the security of both countries.
