The first international trailer for “Atomic Blonde,” the film adaptation of Antony Johnston and Sam Hart Cold War spy graphic novel “The Coldest City,” has just hit the internet. This one brings with it some fresh footage and a soundtrack that includes a fierce new remix of the Eurythmics’s “Sweet Dreams” to complement the electronic beat of New Order’s seminal “Blue Monday” heard in the film’s earlier promos.
In addition to the kick-ass action sequences seen previously, the latest promo shows Charlize Theron as MI6 spy Lorraine Broughton, dishing some serious sass during a debriefing session that even James Bond would probably think twice about throwing down on his superiors.
Set in the espionage underworld of Berlin in 1989, just days before the Berlin Wall fell, “Atomic Blonde” follow’s Broughton’s last-ditch spy mission to retrieve a stolen list of undercover agents before it falls into the wrong hands and endangers the lives of countless undercover Western intelligence officers.
In a city full of competing operatives from various nations, all with a collection of overlapping agendas, Broughton needs all the help she can get — so it is just as well that James McAvoy is on hand as her liaison. And it looks like she’ll definitely need his help, even if it is just to hand her a missing shoe after an intense car-bound fist fight that culminates in a nasty crash.
Directed by David Leitch, “Atomic Blonde” also stars Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Sofia Boutella and John Goodman and is die to arrive in theaters June 28.
