First trailer for Atomic Blonde introduces Charlize Theron as Not John Wick

'Atomic Blonde' Red-Band Trailer: Charlize Theron Is MI-6's Most NSFW Assassin

'Atomic Blonde' Red-Band Trailer: Charlize Theron Is MI-6's Most NSFW Assassin

It's not revenge-based and there are no much-lamented dead dogs in sight, but Atomic Blonde's fight choreography packs the same kind of punch. The film features Oscar victor Charlize Theron, and will release in theaters later this summer. Described as "equal parts spycraft, sensuality and savagery, willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on her impossible mission", according to the official description. And it makes sense, because Atomic Blonde's director, David Leitch, was the co-director of the first John Wick. Sent alone into Berlin to retrieve a priceless dossier from within the destabilized city, she partners with embedded station chief David Percival (James McAvoy) to navigate her way through a deadly game of spies. Charlize Theron debuts as kick-ass MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton in the NSFW Atomic Blonde trailer, which sees the actress going full Furiosa across a volatile Berlin. Kurt Johnstad (300) wrote the screenplay.

Bale has 'always got on well' with Real Madrid superstar
The striker nearly repeated the stunning effort he scored in Madrid, but Keylor Navas scrambled across his goal to turn it wide. The Slovakia captain then drifted a rushed long range effort just wide as the Italian side dominated the opening exchanges.

The film is set to release in July, and even though it has an unbelievable cast, it will have a lot of competition at the box-office. Should those films prove to be blockbuster successes, it could spell trouble for "Atomic Blonde". The graphic novel follows a spy who is tasked with finding a list of double agents being smuggled into the West. Leitch dropped out of John Wick: Chapter 2, the recent sequel to the 2014 film, to focus entirely on Atomic Blonde.
