What happens when you mix the acting chops of an Academy Award-winning actress with the vision of the director behind John Wick?
You get Atomic Blonde, an all-action spy thriller that’ll kick your adrenaline into high gear and take you on one hell of a ride!
Here’s the synopsis:
Berlin. 1989. The Berlin Wall is about to fall and Allied operatives from both Britain and America and turning up dead. With no time for loose ends, M16 operative Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) is dispatched to Berlin under orders to eliminate a ruthless espionage ring that is killing operatives. Partnered with Berlin station chief David Percival (James McAvoy), Lorraine unleashes her full arsenal of skills in pursuing a threat that could have dire consequences for the freedom and security of the West.

Let’s just begin by saying that the action in Atomic Blonde is out of this world! Director David Leitch (John Wick) has brought his considerable action skills to the table, and has obviously put Theron through her paces at his 87eleven action school. Using everything from guns to knives, and a range of lethal close quarter combat skills including kickboxing and jiu jitsu, Theron really looks the part as this top MI6 operative who could give James Bond a run for his money.
Mark your calendars for Atomic Blonde, which will be released on July 28 in the US and UK and on August 3 in New Zealand and Australia.
