atomic blonde review

Note: This review originally ran following the world premiere of Atomic Blonde at the SXSW Film Festival. It is in theaters today.

In a nutshell: Atomic Blonde is about a badass, bisexual British secret agent who fights like John Wick and seduces like James Bond who travels to Germany days before the fall of the Berlin Wall to recover some stolen intelligence. She wears a number of amazing outfits, kills a whole bunch of bad guys, and just looks terrific as she struts through noisy nightclubs and desolate alleyways to a soundtrack of ’80s synth pop. It is excellent, two-fisted entertainment and further proof that Charlize Theron is one of our great modern action heroes.

In a smaller nutshell: Atomic Blonde is one of the most purely entertaining action movies coming out this year.

Atomic Blonde Trailer

Keanu Reeves returned to the big screen in John Wick: Chapter 2 earlier this year, bringing the badass assassin back in an even bigger way. However, Charlize Theron isn’t far behind with her own action flick, and she’s got one of the filmmakers behind John Wick coming with her.

Atomic Blonde finds the Mad Max: Fury Road star as an assassin in 1980s Berlin who must deal with an endless array of bad guys as she attempts to complete her latest mission. A new trailer for the movie from director David Leitch (who is hard at work on Deadpool 2) has arrived and it showcases even more of Charlize Theron’s kick-ass action.

Charlize Theron‘s last action movie, The Fate of the Furious, was disappointing. She didn’t get in on the action much, as her villainous hacker mostly sat around computer screens, threatening Dominic Toretto. Theron’s next action movie, Atomic Blonde, doesn’t look like it’s letting any of her talents go unused. Based on early reviews, Agent Lorraine Broughton might be another killer character from Theron, who’s already given us one of the great action heroes of the century in Mad Max: Fury Road.

Below, watch a new Atomic Blonde clip.

Atomic Blonde clip 2

Focus Features has deemed the next few months an “#AtomicSummer” in honor of their upcoming spy thriller Atomic Blonde, and I’m willing to overlook that cheesy name as long as it results in us getting a better look at the movie. They kicked things off with a glimpse at one of the film’s fight scenes, but their newly-released second clip slows things down a little and shows a different side of the spy game altogether, as Charlize Theron and Sofia Boutella’s characters flirt in a crowded bar.

If Charlize Theron‘s current goal is to firmly establish herself in the action movie pantheon, she’s doing one helluva job. She was already there thanks to her work in Mad Max: Fury Road (and playing a villain in The Fate of the Furious certainly helps), but there’s probably no faster way to action immortality than teaming up with one of the co-directors of John Wick.

Enter Atomic Blonde, the new film from David Leitch, which finds Theron playing a spy sent on a deadly mission to Berlin during the Cold War, where she has to, you know, kill everyone.

Deadpool 2 Hugh Jackman cameo

There’s still hope for finding room for Hugh Jackman in Deadpool 2Ryan Reynolds dreamt up a film starring both Logan and Wade Wilson, but Jackman’s time as the Wolverine is finished. He closed out his 16-year run as the character with a bang. He’s done.

Jackman could, on the other hand, play his most charming character yet in the sequel: Hugh Jackman. Below, read what screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick had to say about this idea for a Deadpool 2 Hugh Jackman cameo.

In Mad Max: Fury Road, Charlize Theron created one of the greatest action heroines of all time with Imperator Furiosa. So, no pressure on secret agent Lorraine Broughton, her character in the new Cold War spy thriller Atomic Blonde. However, if Theron is going to create another truly great cinematic badass, teaming up with one of the minds behind John Wick is a great start.

The first Atomic Blonde trailer has arrived ahead of its debut at the SXSW Film Festival this weekend and you can watch it below.

Deadpool 2 Domino

UPDATE: Well, that was fast. Deadpool and Deadpool 2 writer and executive producer Rhett Reese says there is no truth to this one:

Move on. Nothing to see here. The original rumor follows below.

Conversations and rumors surrounding who might play Domino in Deadpool 2 have been going on for months now. A new name in the mix for director David Leitch‘s (John Wick) sequel? Singer-songwriter Janelle Monáe, who starred in last year’s Moonlight and Hidden Figures, is now rumored as the frontrunner for the role.

Below, learn more about the Deadpool 2 Domino role.

I remember being a little bummed out that David Leitch and Chad Stahelski parted ways after co-directing John Wick, with the latter going on to tackle the incredible sequel on his own. However, Leitch is doing quite well for himself. He’ll be calling the shots on Deadpool 2 (he directed that teaser trailer that played before Logan), but before that, he’s delivering a thriller starring Charlize Theron as a British spy kicking ass during the Cold War.

Atomic Blonde will premiere at the SXSW Film Festival this weekend and the first trailer is set to arrive this Friday. But for now, we’ll make do with a new batch of photos and two new trailer teases, which feature Theron James Bond-ing (or is that John Wick-ing?) her way across Berlin on the eve of the Soviet Union’s collapse.
