Charlize Theron's Atomic Blonde may have the pungent scent of several femme-fatale assassin flicks from over the years, but this high-profile superspy film directed by David Leitch (John Wick, Deadpool 2) has the added pedigree of being adapted from the Oni Press graphic novel by Antony Johnston and Sam Hart. It's also well fortified with a killer cast, including James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class), John Goodman (Kong: Skull Island), Til Schweiger (Inglourious Basterds), Eddie Marsan (Ray Donovan), Sofia Boutella (The Mummy) and Toby Jones (Captain America: The First Avenger).
Battle your way into the official synopsis:
A high-stakes, global action-thriller that takes place in the city of Berlin, on the eve of the Wall’s collapse and the shifting of superpower alliances. Charlize Theron (Mad Max: Fury Road) portrays Lorraine Broughton, a top-level spy for MI6, who is dispatched to Berlin to take down a ruthless espionage ring that has just killed an undercover agent for reasons unknown. She is ordered to cooperate with Berlin station chief David Percival (James McAvoy of X-Men), and the two form an uneasy alliance, unleashing their full arsenal of skills in pursuing a threat that jeopardizes the West’s entire intelligence operation.
Here's a fresh clip showcasing a badass Charlize Theron dispatching villains with a red stiletto heel in a speeding sedan and a grand entrance by her partner, James McAvoy’s Porsche-driving Percival, as Peter Schilling's 1982 Euro-pop "Major Tom" plays over the radio.
Focus Features' Atomic Blonde careens into theaters on July 28.
