Charlize Theron Cracks Some Skulls in First Atomic Blonde Trailer

Just ahead of its SXSW debut (going down this Sunday for lucky attendees), the first trailer for the action-thriller, Atomic Blonde has arrived.  Originally going by the title, The Coldest City (the same name as the graphic novel it’s based on), Atomic Blonde sees Charlize Theron play a badass MI6 spy on a dangerous mission.  While the trailer may not fill in much in terms of the story, it’s packed with plenty of action.  Be warned, however, this is a Red Band trailer: 

There’s a lot to like about this stylish action trailer, which manages to cram in a fairly impressive fight sequence all on its own.  I mean, if this is just the trailer, Atomic Blonde looks like it will be a balls to the wall kinda action flick.  Color me intrigued…What do you think? 

Oscar winner Charlize Theron explodes into summer in Atomic Blonde, a breakneck action-thriller that follows MI6’s most lethal assassin through a ticking time bomb of a city simmering with revolution and double-crossing hives of traitors. 

The crown jewel of Her Majesty’s Secret Intelligence Service, Agent Lorraine Broughton (Theron) is equal parts spycraft, sensuality and savagery, willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on her impossible mission.  Sent alone into Berlin to deliver a priceless dossier out of the destabilized city, she partners with embedded station chief David Percival (James McAvoy) to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies. 

Atomic Blonde hits theaters on July 28, 2017
