[Source: Syfy] Universal Pictures has dropped a final, action-packed trailer for Atomic Blonde.
The R-rated movie, based on The Coldest City, a 2012 graphic novel written by Antony Johnston and illustrated by Sam Hart, stars Charlize Theron (Mad Max: Fury Road) in the role of the badass
blond bombshell MI6 assassin and James McAvoy (X-Men: Apocalypse) as Berlin station chief David Percival (is it me, or is McAvoy looking like he’s having a whole lotta fun?).
Directed by David Leitch (John Wick, Deadpool 2) from a screenplay by Kurt Johnstad (300, 300: Rise of an Empire), Atomic Blonde also boasts an exciting cast in John Goodman (Kong: Skull Island), Til Schweiger (Inglourious Basterds), Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes, The World’s End), Sofia Boutella (Star Trek Beyond, The Mummy) and Toby Jones (Captain America: The First Avenger).
The trailer below features everything one can expect from the co-director of John Wick (and that's a good thing, because John Wick was awesome), with a lot of breathless action and a very, very cool camera shot of that car chase.
Atomic Blonde offers 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.
Atomic Blonde will explode in theaters on July 28.
