Charlize Theron looks flawless in this Sin City-esque poster for her newest flick, Atomic Blonde.
The Mad Max: Fury Road star headlines in the action-packed, David Leitch (John Wick and Deadpool 2) film as M16’s most lethal assassin, Lorraine Broughton. Atomic Blonde takes place during the Cold War; Theron is sent to Berlin to investigate the murder of a fellow agent and to recover a missing list of double agents.
Atomic Blonde also stars John Goodman (Kong: Skull Island, 10 Cloverfield Lane), Til Schweiger (Tarort, Inglourious Basterds), Eddie Marsan (Ray Donovan, The World’s End), Sofia Boutella (Star Trek Beyond, The Mummy) and Toby Jones (Captain America: The First Avenger).
Although the highly-anticipated summer film isn’t set to release for over a month, thankfully, Focus Film dropped a brand-new poster and it looks awesome. The black and white poster features a sultry Theron closely holding a gun behind her back, just in case.
Universal Studios first premiered Atomic Blonde back in March at the SXSW Film Festival and received mostly positive reviews from critics and moviegoers. Although many of the flick’s negative reviews came from critics who accuse the film of being a style-over-substance action flick, it is still set out to be one of the summer’s best action-thriller films. Fans are lining up to catch the once-Furiosa-actress in her element, kicking ass and taking names.
Atomic Blonde will hit theatres July 28.
