ATOMIC BLONDE: Bring Home The Sexy New Thriller In 4K This October And November


It would be a miscarriage of justice to not help sell David Leitch's pulsating directorial feature debut, Atomic Blonde. Alas, here I am posting about it as the umpteenth fanboy blogger who had his fill of watching actress Charlize Theron cut her teeth even further as a headling star in an action thriller that defies denialist expectations and further continues to reshape how principal action scenes are made in Hollywood.

If it means anything, my two cents can be read here. I almost didn't bother posting one at the time but it actually felt good to get my thoughts out as much as I felt the need to stay on top of how I critique films now compared to when I started this site; a few certain films I've reviewed in the past are getting sequels involving filmmakers I've lended a bit of a curve to despite their flaws and I lately find myself shortening it, lest directors feel the need to use sites like mine to push their stuff on the count of how "awesome" it is because of the content I discuss.

...So, that's where I stand - This, adding to the fact that even filmmakers on Leitch's level, or he himself, are not infallible. Atomic Blonde was more than a breath of fresh air this year next to banner titles like John Wick: Chapter Two and last year's Deadpool. It was exactly what the doctor ordered, and here's to hoping the trend continues. For all it's worth, share the trend at home in 4K and then some as the holidays near.

Peep the announcement from last week, or simply pre-order your Blu-Ray copy today and stay tuned for ordering info on the 4K rendition.

From Universal Pictures Home Entertainment: Atomic Blonde
Oscar®-winner Charlize Theron stars as elite MI6's most lethal assassin and the crown jewel of her Majesty's secret intelligence service, Lorraine Broughton, in ATOMIC BLONDE. When she's sent on a covert mission into Cold War Berlin, she must use all of the spycraft, sensuality and savagery she has to stay alive in the ticking time bomb of a city simmering with revolution and double-crossing hives of traitors. Broughton must navigate her way through a deadly game of spies to recover a priceless dossier while fighting ferocious killers along the way in this breakneck action-thriller from director David Leitch (Deadpool 2, John Wick). Theron is joined by James McAvoy (Split, X-Men: First Class), Sofia Boutella (The Mummy, Star Trek Beyond) and John Goodman (Transformers: The Last Knight, Patriots Day) in what critics are calling "the best spy movie in years," Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV.
