A T O M I C B L O N D EOscar® winner Charlize Theron explodes into summer in Atomic Blonde, 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.
The film is based on the graphic novel The Coldest City, written by Antony Johnston and published by Oni Press. It follows Lorraine Broughton (Theron), a take-no-prisoners spy-type operative, as she attempts to find an "atomic bomb of information" and uncover an espionage ring, all on the eve of the collapse of the Berlin Wall.
Director David Leitch, best known for the gun-fu fighting John Wick, is helming the project, with a screenplay by Kurt Johnstad (of 300 and the upcoming Aquaman). James McAvoy, John Goodman, Toby Jones and Sofia Boutella also star.
