Charlize Theron has taken on a new lease of life since blowing us all away in Mad Max: Fury Road and, along with Fast & Furious 8, she’s signed on for Atomic Blonde, an action movie directed by John Wick co-director David Leitch.
And that makes us all pretty excited here at FTN. And the red band trailer also makes us excited because it looks and feels like it could well be in the same universe as Wick. Now, wouldn’t that be a thing?
Check out the plot and trailer below and then beware as the trailer is NSFW… but it’s also bloody great.
Let us know what you all think.
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.
The movie is set for release this summer but no release date is in place yet.
