David Leitch, who co-directed the insanely brilliant bullet-frenzy that was John Wick and is currently working on Deadpool 2, is in the directors chair for ‘Atomic Blonde, which is being called a “blistering blend of sleek action, gritty sexuality and dazzling style”.
The synopsis is:
“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.”
The film boasts a fantastic cast with the likes of, Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, John Goodman, Sofia Boutella, and Toby Jones. I’ve been waiting for this trailer since I heard about the film and who was involved and I’ve got to say, this trailer really didn’t disappoint! It’s already being hailed as the female John Wick, which I can definitely see will catch on quickly.
‘Atomic Blonde’ arrives in UK cinemas 11th August 2017
