Watch The Slick New Trailer Tease For ATOMIC BLONDE

EW
Entertainment Weekly rolled out a bunch of exclusives on Wednesday, including new photos from director David Leitch's latest, Atomic Blonde. The film is inspired by Antony Johnston's 2013 novel, The Coldest City, for which actress Charlize Theron acquired the rights several years ago, and for reasons she so explains here in her statement to EW regarding her role:
“I hadn’t seen another character like her out there,” Theron says. “She doesn’t apologize for anything. We made her strong and feisty. She’s cheeky. These were all things I responded to.”
Oscar® winner Theron stars as MI6’s most lethal assassin Lorraine Broughton who is sent to Berlin to utilize her elite skillset in espionage, engagment and survival tactics in order to deliver a priceless dossier with the help of embedded station chief David Percival (James McAvoy) in lieu of the city's crumbling wall. Amidst all this, of course, we are promised some slick, gritty and hardcore action for which Theron trained about four months in which the actress herself also sustained her fair share of training injuries before filming, something which didn't wane at all on the actress or the director on set during production:
“It’s refreshing to find an actor who can do these long, long takes, memorize the choreography, maintain the character, and deliver a performance,” Leitch says. “She’s extraordinary.”
The film opens July 28 following its SXSW premiere, with John Goodman, Til Schweiger, Eddie Marsan, Sofia Boutella and Toby Jones also starring. Check out the trailer tease below and stay tuned for more on Friday.
