Charlize Theron & James McAvoy in new Atomic Blonde photos
Focus Features (via Entertainment Weekly) has released new photos of Charlize Theron and James McAvoy in the cheeky 1989-set action thriller Atomic Blonde. Look for it to hit the big screen July 28, following a debut at the upcoming SXSW Film Festival on Sunday, March 12. You can check out the Atomic Blonde photos in the gallery viewer at the bottom of this page.
Directed by David Leitch (John Wick, the upcoming Deadpool sequel) from an adapted screenplay by Kurt Johnstad, Atomic Blonde is based on the Oni Press graphic novel by writer Antony Johnston and illustrator Sam Hart. Atomic Blonde offers 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 also stars John Goodman (Kong: Skull Island, 10 Cloverfield Lane), Til Schweiger (Tarort, Inglourious Basterds), Eddie Marsan (Ray Donovan, The World’s End), Sofia Boutella (Star Trek Beyond, The Mummy) and Toby Jones (Captain America: The First Avenger).
