Charlize Theron’s new upcoming film, Atomic Blonde, has just released its action-packed movie trailer. Said to be “the best trailer of the year so far,” Theron has clearly upped her game with playing yet another badass female heroine who needs no man to get the job done.
Theron has had her fair share of portraying female heroic heroes and menacing villains this year such as playing Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road, a tech-savvy villain in The Fate of the Furious, and now a hardcore, lethal assassin in Atomic Blonde who clearly doesn’t mess around.
The plotline of Atomic Blonde follows Agent Lorraine Broughton, a spy, assassin, and adequate fighter who uses her skills to complete the impossible. Partnered with station chief, David Percival, Agent Broughton is sent to retrieve an invaluable dossier within the unsettled city of Berlin. With the help of her chief associate, Agent Broughton attempts to navigate through the deadly spy world as she tries to keep herself alive to live to see another day.

The trailer provides little insight of the full extent of the film summary, but what information can anyone expect from a movie trailer. Almost nothing is ever revealed. The opening scene of the trailer definitely makes up for the lack of information as the beginning is a fight scene so legit I’m scared I might get punched in the face from just watching it. The trailer doesn’t disappoint that’s for sure.
Upon the release of the movie trailer, viewers connected the dots and compared Atomic Blonde to the John Wick movies. This makes perfect sense since director, David Leitch, co-directed the John Wick series along with Keanu Reeves.
Atomic Blonde seems to be earning a positive reputation based on what has been released. There are high hopes for the success of this upcoming film, and with all the hype it has been receiving, it can be predicted that this film will not disappoint. Mark your calendars for the release of this action movie in theatres on July 28 to experience the true definition of hardcore.
