Charlize Theron is back to her ass-kicking ways, this time teaming up with director David Leitch (John Wick, Deadpool 2) for an adaptation of Antony Johnston’s 2012 graphic novel, The Coldest City. Set in 1989, Atomic Blonde stars Theron as MI6 spy Lorraine Broughton as she’s dispatched to Berlin to take down an espionage ring that brutally murdered an undercover agent. Broughton is ultimately ordered to ally herself with Berlin station chief David Percival (James McAvoy) as the two unleash “their full arsenal of skills in pursuing a threat that jeopardizes the West’s entire intelligence operation.”
Also starring the likes of John Goodman, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan and Sofia Boutella, Atomic Blonde is set to premiere at SXSW this Sunday, March 12, and will get a wide release on July 28.
