Charlize Theron Confirms That ‘Atomic Blonde 2’ Is Currently Being Developed

I have mixed feelings on ‘Atomic Blonde,’ the action-thriller was released last year and it surprised a lot of people. It received mostly positive reviews from critics and made nearly $100 million at the box office against a budget of just $30 million.

I went in expecting to love the movie, but I found myself incredibly bored. I nearly fell asleep during it. It certainly had the potential to be a great movie, but it failed (at least for me) and I was pretty disappointed.

Fast forward a year later, and Charlize Theron was on Watch What Happens Live promoting her new film Tully, which is great…by the way.

During the interview, she confirmed that an ‘Atomic Blonde 2‘ was currently in development. She didn’t give a lot of details, but I’m assuming they’ll start filming later this year and it’ll be released in 2019.

By the way, she also talked about those James Bond rumors. Chris Hemsworth sparked rumors when he said that Theron should be the next James Bond. Sadly, Theron says nothing is in the works right now.

The New Trailer For ‘Atomic Blonde’ Kicks Some More Serious Butt, Watch The Action Inside!

We were pretty impressed by the first trailer for Atomic Blonde. As we have mentioned several times before, it’s difficult to make a good trailer, but the folks behind this movie are doing a great job.

David Leitch (co-director of John Wick) directed this movie, and Charlize Theron stars as a deadly MI6 assassin who gets herself into a lot of trouble.

This new trailer is better than the first, and when a movie manages to make a second trailer more intriguing than the first, that’s when we start to pay attention. The film premiered at SXSW, and a few of the reviews were mixed, but most people left the screening with positive things to say.

In addition to Theron, Atomic Blonde stars John Goodman, James McAvoy and Eddie Marsan. It’s scheduled to hit theaters July 28, 2017.

You can check out the official synopsis and the second trailer below…

“Oscar® winner Charlize Theron explodes into summer in 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 crown jewel of Her Majesty’s Secret Intelligence Service, Agent Lorraine Broughton (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.”

Watch Charlize Theron Kick Some Serious Butt In Trailer For ‘Atomic Blonde’

The world premiere for ‘Atomic Blonde‘ will go down at SXSW this weekend, and Focus Features has decided to release a red-band trailer for the film to get everyone excited.

Charlize Theron plays a Brit MI6 assassin, so you can bet she will be kicking some a**. David Leitch directed this movie, which should tell you that it’s going to be super entertaining. He co-directed the original John Wick film.

We’ll let indiewire provide you with a little more information about the movie…

“Theron stars as Agent Lorraine Broughton in the film adaptation of Antony Johnson and Sam Hart’s graphic novel, “The Coldest City.” David Leitch (“John Wick,” the upcoming “Deadpool 2”) is at the helm of this Cold War spy action-thriller that follows Theron’s Broughton on the eve of the Berlin Wall’s collapse as she tries to stay alive on her mission.”

As mentioned above, Atomic Blonde will premiere this weekend at SXSW. It will hit theaters on July 28, 2017.
