Atomic Blonde (2017)

Recommended Posts



Atomic Blonde is an upcoming American spy action thriller film directed by David Leitch and written by Kurt Johnstad. It is based on Antony Johnston's 2012 graphic novel The Coldest City, which revolves around a spy who has to find a list of double agents who are being smuggled into the West. The film stars Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, John Goodman, Eddie Marsan, Sofia Boutella, and Toby Jones. This will be Leitch's first solo credit as director, after co-directing John Wick with Chad Stahelski.


The film will have its world premiere at South by Southwest on March 12, 2017. It will then be released on July 28, 2017, by Focus Features.



The film takes place in Berlin, 1989, on the eve of the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the shifting of superpower alliances. Lorraine Broughton, a top-level spy for MI6, is dispatched to Berlin to take down a ruthless espionage ring that has just killed an undercover agent for reasons unknown. She is ordered to cooperate with Berlin station chief David Percival, and the two form an uneasy alliance, unleashing their full arsenal of skills in pursuing a threat that jeopardizes the West’s entire intelligence operation.

Saw a trailer in the theater recently. I'm not sure about the movie yet, but Charlize looked great (no surprise).

Better than I expected, actually. It looked great (Charlize seems to take a few cues, stylistically at least, from Deborah Harry), had a killer soundtrack and didn't take itself too seriously. No real pretensions of being anything other than a casually entertaining Wick flick of course, but it does what it sets out to achieve.
