On this episode of The First Run, Matt & Chris discuss the latest Jennifer Lawrence vehicle, ‘Red Sparrow’. Ms. Lawrence plays a Russian spy desperate to escape fate. Can American spy Joel Edgerton foil her handler’s plan and save her from the life she apparently does not want to live? Or is this all just part of her game? Then it’s on to the Spanish horror film newly released to Netflix, ‘Veronica’. A few crazy kids are at it again, playing with a Ouija board. Will they ever learn? Maybe this time it’ll all be cool…? There’s the always-reliable run down of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Straight to DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week. Then the show closed out with our Oscars recap. Does Chris continue his streak or does the king finally lose his throne? Plus Chris and Matt discuss Kristen Wiig being cast as Cheetah in the ‘Wonder Woman’ sequel, Movie Pass is tracking EVERYTHING you do, and more.
