The new trailer for David Leitch's Atomic Blonde has arrived, and yup, they're still cutting together excellent trailers for this movie.
Check it out.
Atomic Blonde appears to be filled to the breaking point with ass-kicking mayhem and cool stylistic flourishes, but it is here that I, your friendly neighborhood News Editor, must level with you: a few members of the Birth.Movies.Death. staff caught Atomic Blonde back during SXSW, and they returned with a most troubling prognosis. I'm not quite ready to write this one off completely, but I must confess that some of the wind has been taken out of my sails. Do with that what you will.
Oh, while you're here, have an unusually wordy plot synopsis:
"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."
Atomic Blonde opens on July 28th. I'm still rooting for it, though perhaps a bit more reservedly than I did before SXSW.
