Here’s a quick clip of Charlize Theron kicking some ass.
Look, I am going to level with you here people. This clip doesn’t grab me. The trailers did, and the poster does, but this clip? I dunno, something doesn’t work for me. I feel like I can see the fight choreography and that’s not supposed to happen.
Still, David Leitch directed this and his other main credit is John Wick, and apparently there is a 10 minute long fight that plays in real-time, so I am definitely going to see this one just as soon as I can.
Atomic Blonde is out July 28th. Here’s a synopsis for you:
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.
