The “honey trap” has long been a staple in spy fiction for nearly a century. The femme fatale trained in the art of seduction acting as a double agent vs. the aloof, professional spy whose only weakness is a great pair of legs or eyes or nostrils or whatever. Red Sparrow, based on the novel of the same name by veteran CIA officer Jason Matthews, brings this kind of film noir tale into the modern day: Jennifer Lawrence will play Russian intelligence officer Dominkia Egorova, who becomes a sort of reluctant Mata Hari and is assigned to an American CIA agent. The Hunger Games’ Francis Lawrence is directing, and the film just cast Jeremy Irons and Matthias Schoenaerts.

Jared Leto’s gritty ’n grilled take on the Clown Prince of Crime was easily the most controversial part of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. Early photos of Leto’s tatted-up Joker drew heavy criticism from fans and launched a million jokes on social media, where he was compared to everything from a Juggalo to a Hot Topic mascot — and that was before we found out about his wacky on-set “method acting” antics, which permanently cemented his status as a ridiculous human being. But if you thought that version of the Joker was obnoxious, boy do we have some concept art for you.
