I’ve never wanted to be any character more than Charlize Theron’s in Atomic Blonde. She’s cutthroat and hot as hell, I could watch her kick ass all day in that stunning wardrobe. Already rumblings from the depths of the internet deign to label Atomic Blonde the ‘female John Wick.’ If we’re talking about two top-quality actors who seriously trained and put their whole selves into a sleek action film, then sure. But not beyond that — Lorraine Broughton is her own force to be reckoned with, and I am almost salivating waiting for more. Check out this new clip from EW that gives a sweet glimpse at some of the hot mayhem to come.
Whoa. That taunting, dance-like choreography, a stylish fight in a hazy apartment kitchen, and a masterful, sick escape is what I’m here for. Charlize is one of the finest actors of our time, proving she can carry any emotional weight that may be required and I’m firmly rooted in the cheering section for this one.
And that use of George Michael’s Father Figure? Don’t ever stop. Don’t you dare.
Atomic Blonde will see theatrical release in the U.S. on July 28, 2017.
