Two big new trailers have dropped for Atomic Blonde, the upcoming action flick starring Charlize Theron as a lethal MI6 assassin.
From John Wick co-director David Leitch, who’s also at the helm of the upcoming Deadpool 2, Atomic Blonde tells of an MI6 agent who is sent to Berlin to deliver a priceless dossier out of the destabilized city. She teams up with an embedded station chief (James McAvoy), and soon finds herself on a path of vengeance to uncover a mole.
This looks just like what you’d expect from one half of the John Wick duo: kick-ass, slickly crafted action. The Oscar winner looks to be on fire as the sultry ass-kicker, there’s a great supporting cast, and of course the combat sequences look great. Theron could have an awesome little franchise-starter here. Can’t wait.
Atomic Blonde, also starring John Goodman, Til Schweiger, Eddie Marsan, Sofia Boutella and Toby Jones, opens in the US on July 28 and arrives in Australia on August 3.
Rundown for Atomic Blonde:
Oscar® winner Charlize Theron explodes into summer in Atomic Blonde, a breakneck action-thriller that follows MI6’s most lethal assassin through a ticking time bomb of a city simmering with revolution and double-crossing hives of traitors.
The crown jewel of Her Majesty’s Secret Intelligence Service, Agent Lorraine Broughton (Theron) is equal parts spycraft, sensuality and savagery, willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on her impossible mission. Sent alone into Berlin to deliver a priceless dossier out of the destabilized city, she partners with embedded station chief David Percival (James McAvoy) to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.
A blistering blend of sleek action, gritty sexuality and dazzling style, Atomic Blonde is directed by David Leitch (John Wick, upcoming Deadpool 2). Also starring John Goodman, Til Schweiger, Eddie Marsan, Sofia Boutella and Toby Jones, the film is based on the Oni Press graphic novel series “The Coldest City,” by Antony Johnston & illustrator Sam Hart. Kurt Johnstad (300) wrote the screenplay.
