Atomic Blonde, the action film starring Charlize Theron is striding towards a July and August international release, and an extended look at a key fight scene has been released.
Setting the film in late 1980s Berlin, previous trailers for Atomic Blonde have made good use of period pop songs, the first two -- which contained snippets from this apartment escape -- riffing on New Order’s Blue Monday and, in turn, Queen’s Killer Queen and then a mashup combining Depeche Mode’s Personal Jesus with 2013 Kanye West track Black Skinhead (both Chambaland and FA$HION $EN$E have been linked to the unattributed combination.)
James McAvoy of Split and the X-Men franchise co-stars as agency contact David Percival, with support from John Goodman, Sofia Boutella, Toby Jones and more. It emerged from its South by Southwest premiere with a review score average identical to that of director David Leitch’s previous film John Wick: 6.9/10 on Rotten Tomatoes; 68% on Metacritic.
Leitch will next direct Deadpool 2 starring Ryan Reynolds.
