Move over 007, because there’s a new MI6 agent muscling into your territory, and she’s played by Charlize Theron in a high-octane new action flick from the co-director of “John Wick”.
In this just-released R-rated (and NSFW) trailer for “Atomic Blonde”, we get our first look at the “Mad Max: Fury Road” star as a lethal assassin who’s as deadly as she is sexy, armed with a license to kill from the British government.
“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,” reads the film’s synopsis. “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 action-espionage flick is based on Antony Johnson’s 2012 graphic novel The Coldest City, and is the solo directorial debut from David Leitch.
“Atomic Blonde” also stars John Goodman, Til Schweiger, Eddie Marsan, Sofia Boutella and Toby Jones, and is set to hit theatres on July 28.
