NSFW: ATOMIC BLONDE' Red Band Trailer

After about 30 seconds of Theron suiting up for action (while a dreary cover of New Order's classic "Blue Monday" plays), the bullets start flying.

Sure, it might have the same director - David Leitch - and it might be about a super-assassin seeking revenge, but it's definitely not John Wick or Joan Wick or any variation on that.

Atomic Blonde is released on 11th August.

The city is filled with changing alliances and she is forced to form a tenuous alliance with station cheif David Percival (James McAvoy) to take down a ruthless espionage agency. Will you check the movie out in theaters?

Atomic Blonde has its world premiere at the SXSW film festival next week.

The film is from John Wick filmmaker David Leitch, who is set to helm the upcoming Deadpool 2.

Atomic Blonde is based on the One Press graphic novel The Coldest City, a title which the movie was moving under when production started past year. I imagine it would look a lot like this new red-band trailer for her new spy thriller Atomic Blonde.

Fans of the comic will see that it is coming to the screen with a fairly faithful adaptation. The film is based on the Oni Press graphic novel series written by Antony Johnston and illustrated by Sam Hart.

Academy Award victor Charlize Theron headlines the Atomic Blonde, directed by David Leitch (John Wick, the upcoming Deadpool sequel) from an adapted screenplay by Kurt Johnstad.

"I hadn't seen another character like her out there", Theron tells EW.
