There is a certain stereotype of how people “fight like a girl” which insinuates a certain inferior style. In a new featurette for Atomic Blonde, we get a look at how Charlize Theron fights, how she did her own stunts, and how she impressed the choreographers of the battles she goes through. If anything it proves that fighting “like a girl” is pretty bad ass.
With one month to go until its release, we are thrilled to debut the new featurette “Fight Like a Girl” for ATOMIC BLONDE, a breakneck action-thriller that follows MI6’s most lethal assassin through a ticking time bomb of a city simmering with revolution and double-crossing hives of traitors. The featurette documents interviews and behind-the-scenes footage of Charlize Theron’s training and martial arts choreography.
The crown jewel of Her Majesty’s Secret Intelligence Service, Agent Lorraine Broughton (Oscar winner Charlize Theron) is equal parts spycraft, sensuality, and savagery, willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on her impossible mission. Sent alone into Berlin to deliver a priceless dossier out of the destabilized city, she partners with embedded station chief David Percival (James McAvoy) to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.
A blistering blend of sleek action, gritty sexuality and dazzling style, ATOMIC BLONDE is directed by David Leitch (John Wick, upcoming Deadpool 2). Also starring John Goodman, Til Schweiger, Eddie Marsan, Sofia Boutella and Toby Jones, the film is based on the Oni Press graphic novel “The Coldest City,” by Antony Johnston & illustrator Sam Hart. Kurt Johnstad (300) wrote the screenplay.
Atomic Blonde is out in UK cinemas from Wednesday August 9
