'Atomic Blonde' Trailer: Watch Charlize Theron Brutally Kick Ass

Described as "equal parts spycraft, sensuality and savagery, willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on her impossible mission", according to the official description.

Charlize Theron may play a cunning criminal mastermind causing autonomous chaos behind-the-scenes in The Fate of the Furious, but the actress is getting right in the middle of the violence in the upcoming movie Atomic Blonde.

That's the drive behind Atomic Blonde, which is being co-directed by John Wick's David Leitch - and, judging by this newly released "restricted" trailer, is going to be ridiculous.

Atomic Blonde will premiere at SXSW on March 12.

Joining Charlize Theron is a star-studded cast including: James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class), John Goodman (The Big Lebowski), Toby Jones (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets), and Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service).

Fittingly, people immediately compared Theron in Atomic Blonde to Keanu Reeves in the John Wick movies.

The whole thing starts off with an impressive single take fight between Theron and two baddies in a stairwell. We're sure Reeves had a hand in pointing out some helping hints in how to handle an incoming army of gun-totting bad guys. While she's done blockbuster action before - notably in Æon Flux and Mad Max: Fury Road - this could be her best showcase yet. The Coldest City was written by Antony Johnston & illustrator Sam Hart. Atomic Blonde will be dropped on audiences, July 28. Kurt Johnstad (300) wrote the screenplay.
