Red Sparrow

Factual error: When Dominica is tasked with swapping Intelligence using a laptop in the hotel, she is using floppy discs which is highly unlikely in the realm of international espionage. Not only do they not hold enough info at only 1.44MB each, but laptops have not had floppy drives for quite some years and this movie is supposed to take place in 2017.


Factual error: In two shots during the Heathrow sequence, a CGI airplane is seen taking off in the background. The airplane is depicted as a British Airways 747-8 Intercontinental. However, BA has never flown this type. They fly the older 747-400, which is distinguishable from the 747-8 by its vertical winglets. The newer type features blended wingtips.

Suggested correction: British Airways did fly 747-8s under the Global Supply Systems brand. These planes still had BA livery, so would look the same.

British Airways flew 747-8F's (the freighter version) circa 2013, distinguished by the shorter fuselage upper deck hump. The airplane depicted in the film has the longer upper deck, common to the 747-8 Intercontinental (passenger version).
