This week, NYFA students received an exclusive invitation from 20th Century Fox to the world premiere of one of the season’s most-anticipated films: Red Sparrow.

    NYFA students dressed in their best business attire for the opening, and had a chance to see director Francis Lawrence together with the films stars Jennifer Lawrence and Joel Edgerton, who attended the Feb. 26 premier at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall.

    Based on the book by Jason Matthews, Red Sparrow is a spy thriller starring Jennifer Lawrence and Joel Edgerton. The story follows ballerina Dominika Egorova, a young woman forced by necessity to navigate a complex web of international intrigue, violence, and intelligence when she is persuaded to join Sparrow School, a training ground for elite secret agents.

    In order to survive and regain control of her life, she must learn to play the game better than anyone else. The all-star cast also includes Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker and Jeremy Irons.

    While NYFA students were treated to this VIP World Premier, audiences across the U.S. will have a chance to see Red Sparrow in theatres nationwide on March 2.

    On Tuesday, September 12 New York Film Academy Students were invited to a once-in-a-lifetime event: the world premiere of “American Assassin.”

    The screening was held at the famous TCL Chinese Theater. As the students approached the theater, the red carpet stretched out in front them, including the Hollywood Boulevard handprints and stars. 

    Walking past the long line of paparazzi, journalists, PR representatives and screaming fans, students approached the grand entrance. After the large laminate tickets were shown to doormen, the student took their seats at the front of the theater.

    Director Michael Cuesta and producers Aidan Elliott and Lorenzo di Bonaventura introduced the film. They thanked the the men and women of the U.S. covert services who protect the United States of America. They also congratulated the entire crew for helping them complete this project, which they had been working on for over 10 years.

    Stars Michael Keaton, Dylan O’Brien, Taylor Kitsch, and Shiva Negar were also in attendance. “American Assassin” is O’Brien’s first leading role in an action film, though the former MTV “Teen Wolf” star is also known for “The Maze Runner.” His turn as a grieving fiancé seeking revenge against the terrorist organizations who killed the love of his life will have fans seeing O’Brien in an entirely new light.

    During the screening, the crowd was very vocal about their appreciation of the film. They roared with laughter as Keaton used wit and a sharp tongue to eliminate a bad guy and cheered as the hero made a daring last-minute escape.

    The New York Film Academy would like to thank CBS Films and Lionsgate for the incredible tickets. Go see “American Assassin” in theaters on Friday, September 15.
