Charlize Theron plays an MI6 agent who dishes out just as much as she takes beatings in what could be one of the best action movies of 2017, Atomic Blonde.
“The crown jewel of Her Majesty’s Secret Intelligence Service, Agent Lorraine Broughton 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 to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.”
If it looks like Atomic Blonde is a lot like a female John Wick, well there’s an explanation for that, John Wick co-director David Leitch helmed this movie. He’s also set to direct Deadpool 2 (also directed the “No Good Deeds” Deadpool short). Back to the movie, Atomic Blonde oozes style and I absolutely love this trailer. Fortunately it seems there’s more to Atomic Blonde than just style since so far critical reception is pretty positive with the film sitting at 76% on Rotten Tomatoes after 17 counted reviews. This is one movie I’m definitely looking forward to seeing later this summer.
David Leitch directed Atomic Blonde and Kurt Johnstad (300) wrote the screenplay based on the graphic novel written by Antony Johnston and illustrated by Sam Hart. Starring in the action flick are Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, Sofia Boutella, John Goodman, Toby Jones and many others.
Atomic Blonde was first screened at the South by South West Film Festival in March and will be available in wide release starting July 28th in the US and a few other countries.
Here’s the different enough international trailer.
