In a summer full of reboots, remakes, sequels and prequels, even a semi-original film can come as a refreshing change of pace. That’s what Charlize Theron’s upcoming Cold War spy thriller, Atomic Blonde, is shaping up to be. We’ve already seen multiple trailers and teasers for the film — all of which showcase the brutal, bloody and sweetly stylish nature of the thriller. But with Atomic Blonde‘s release now only a few short weeks away, Universal has released one final trailer to keep audiences satisfied.
Atomic Blonde follows undercover MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton (Theron), who is sent to Germany during the Cold War to uncover the mystery behind a murdered agent. But, as one would expect, things go terribly wrong. Broughton is forced to go on the run with a bunch of sketchy characters, which also entails plenty of kicking the lights out of anyone who crosses her path.
The film definitely has a John Wick vibe, but Atomic Blonde seems to be on a whole other level. Theron, who gave a phenomenal performance in 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road, is already a bonafide action star. But Atomic Blonde will surely convince any skeptics out there of her talent. Theron costars with James McAvoy (X-Men: Apocalypse), Sofia Boutella (The Mummy), John Goodman (10 Cloverfield Lane), and Toby Jones (Captain America: The First Avenger).
Theron has apparently been trying to get this story on the big screen for some time now, after she snagged the rights to Sam Hart and Antony Johnston’s graphic novel The Coldest City. Despite the original title sounding intriguing, we can all agree Atomic Blonde sounds way better in this case. The film received praise when it premiered at South by Southwest back in March, and has had people begging for it ever since. Let’s hope the wait pays off. In the meantime, check out Atomic Blonde‘s beautiful poster and final trailer below.
Atomic Blonde hits U.S. theaters on July 28th, 2017.
