There’s also this awesome poster, in case you missed it…
A high-stakes, global action-thriller that takes place in the city of Berlin, on the eve of the Wall’s collapse and the shifting of superpower alliances. Charlize Theron (“Mad Max: Fury Road”) portrays Lorraine Broughton, a top-level spy for MI6, who is dispatched to Berlin to take down a ruthless espionage ring that has just killed an undercover agent for reasons unknown. She is ordered to cooperate with Berlin station chief David Percival (James McAvoy of “X-Men”), and the two form an uneasy alliance, unleashing their full arsenal of skills in pursuing a threat that jeopardizes the West’s entire intelligence operation.
And yes, that’s James McAvoy in the one image. It should be a great duo.
It’s a lot of fun seeing Charlize Theron transform into this badass female action icon these last couple of years. Aside from Atomic Blonde, you will see her as the key villain in The Fate of The Furious next month.
Atomic Blonde will hit theaters July 28.
