Charlize Theron kicks plenty of butt but can’t be bothered to take names in an extended clip from Atomic Blonde, director David Leitch’s adaptation of Antony Johnston and Sam Hart’s 2012 graphic novel The Coldest City.
The action-packed clip depicts MI6 spy Lorraine Broughton (Theron) in an apartment using an extension cord and various other household items to beat up attacking police. In the background, George Michael’s 1987 song “Father Figure” plays.
The film follows Broughton as she’s sent to Berlin in 1989, just days before the fall of the Berlin Wall, to retrieve a non-official cover (NOC) list taken from the body of another operative. Broughton teams up with Berlin’s station chief, played in the film by McAvoy, to retrieve the list and save the lives of Western intelligence agents.
CBR gave Atomic Blonde a positive review, calling Theron’s Broughton “one of the most ass-kicking action heroes to ever hit the big screen.”
Arriving in theaters June 28, Atomic Blonde stars Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Sofia Boutella and John Goodman.
