Based on the Oni Press graphic novel series The Coldest City written by Anthony Johnston, Atomic Blonde is a story of secret dealings and shady agendas.

An undercover MI6 agent, Agent Lorraine Broughton (Academy Award winner Charlize Theron) is sent alone to Berlin to retrieve a priceless dossier from within the destabilised city during the Cold War. Highly skilled, sensual and savage, Agent Broughton is willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on an impossible mission. She partners with embedded station chief David Percival (Golden Globe nominee James McAvoy) to navigate her way through a deadly game of spies.

Atomic Blonde is directed by John Wick 2 co-director, David Leitch.
