As if you didn’t know already after seeing Mad Max: Fury Road, Prometheus or Monster, Charlize Theron can pull off the Killer Queen act like few since Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley, Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman, Uma Thurman as Beatrix Kiddo or Gena Rowlands as Gloria.
In the forthcoming film Atomic Blonde from director David Leitch (John Wick and the upcoming Deadpool 2), our favorite blonde ice pick plays MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton on a mission to deliver a dossier out of a destabilized Berlin. The prospect of a slick, sexy, tough, raw and beautifully produced movie about a woman who is not to be trifled with is a thrill to see. I wish there were more of these.
Atomic Blonde co-stars James McAvoy, John Goodman, Til Schweiger, Eddie Marsan, Sofia Boutella and Toby Jones, and is based on the graphic novel series “The Coldest City” written by Antony Johnston and illustrated by Sam Hart. It opens July 28th.
(And please… no “Bond vs. Blonde” spinoffs. Please.)
