'Atomic Blonde' has great fights, Charlize Theron had to...dress the part? She tells Yahoo Movies action scenes in sexy clothes is 'a different reality'
David Leitch has developed a reputation for his masterful orchestration of practical stunts and fight scenes — first as a stuntman, then as a stunt coordinator, and now as the shot caller behind the new Charlize Theron spy thriller, Atomic Blonde. If you’ve ever wondered how filmmakers like Leitch choreograph high-speed car chases, the director lets us in on a few secrets in our new installment of Instant Commentary (watch it above). Leitch narrates one of the film’s most pulsating sequences, which finds MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton (Theron) speeding through the streets of Berlin while baddies hunt her and the man she’s protecting (Spyglass, played by Eddie Marsan).
Charlize Theron is a fighter and a lover as butt-kicking MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton in the gritty upcoming actioner Atomic Blonde. “I was really nervous at first, but [Charlize] made it so easy for me,” Boutella told Yahoo Movies at Cinemacon in Las Vegas (watch above). The pairing with Boutella is not Theron’s first onscreen relationship with another woman.
