Fresh from MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, Charlize Theron explodes into Fantasia with 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 (Oscar winner Theron) exudes equal parts spycraft, sensuality and savagery, willing to deploy any of her formidable skills to stay alive on her impossible mission. Sent alone into Berlin circa 1989 to deliver a priceless dossier out of the destabilized city, she partners with embedded station chief David Percival (X-MEN’s James McAvoy) to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.
Directed by David Leitch (JOHN WICK, the upcoming DEADPOOL 2), ATOMIC BLONDE burst out of South By Southwest earlier this year and is now poised to leave Fantasia moviegoers equally breathless. A blistering blend of sleek action, gritty sexuality and dazzling neon-drenched style, ATOMIC BLONDE boasts one thrilling fight sequence in particular (set on a stairwell and with no cuts) that has already entered the annals of film history as one of the most exhilarating cinematic moments ever. The genre-friendly cast includes John Goodman (KONG: SKULL ISLAND), Til Schweiger (INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS), Eddie Marsan (SHERLOCK HOLMES), Sofia Boutella (THE MUMMY) and Toby Jones (CAPTAIN AMERICA). Kurt Johnstad (300) wrote the screenplay based on the Oni Press graphic novel series “The Coldest City” by Antony Johnston and illustrator Sam Hart.
