Charlize Theron isn't someone you want to mess with -- and she's certainly not someone you want to go up against in a fight -- as she shows off her incredible survival skills in a pair of new trailers for "Atomic Blonde."
Directed by stuntman/fight choreographer David Leitch, who co-directed the first "John Wick" movie and is currently working on the "Deadpool" sequel, "Atomic Blonde" is a Cold War-era action thriller, in which Theron plays an elite MI6 assassin whose looks are as deadly as her spying skills. When tasked with finding a dangerous double agent in Berlin, Theron's Lorraine Broughton is paired up with an undercover operative (played by James McAvoy). But in a city filled with spies, the only person you can trust is yourself.
Based on the comic book "The Coldest City" by writer Antony Johnston and illustrator Sam Hart, the movie co-stars John Goodman, Sofia Boutella, Bill Skarsgard, and Toby Jones. It's set to open this summer, hitting U.S. theaters on July 28th.
Oscar-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.
