We've already seen Charlize Theron kick ass but she's not done yet and in Atomic Blonde she takes on a role that looks to fall somewhere between James Bond and John Wick.

Based on a comic book series, the movie stars Theron as MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton who is sent to Berlin to investigate the murder of a fellow agent and to recover a missing list of double agents. Along with Theron, the Cold War-set action extravaganza also stars John Goodman, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, and James McAvoy.

And it looks like an extravaganza.

Directed by David Leitch, a stunt guy who is credited as an uncredited director on John Wick, directed the amusing Deadpool: No Good Deed short which screened in front of Logan and is at the helm of Deadpool 2, it certainly seems like Leitch has learned a few things on sets over the years.

The trailer for Atomic Blonde is devoid of story but it's chalk full of lovely tidbits including a steamy sex scene, Theron kicking lots of ass and James McAvoy providing some comedic relief.

McAvoy says "I think I fucking love you." My sentiments exactly.

Atomic Blonde opens July 28.

Recommended Release: John Wick
