Charlize Theron is a sexy one-woman army in the first restricted trailer for the Cold War spy thriller "Atomic Blonde." She also seduces a French agent (Sofia Boutella) in what looks like a very steamy session.
The trailer opens to a slowed-down version of New Order's "Blue Monday" as a lingerie-clad Theron tapes a microphone into her bra, and then punches it out with two men in a hallway, sending one tumbling down the stairs.
As Toby Jones gives us her background in voiceover -- she's Lorraine Broughton, MI6's most lethal agent and "an expert in escape and evasion... and hand-to-hand combat" -- the trailer segues to Queen's "Killer Queen." ("She's guaranteed to blow your mind!")
After Jones and John Goodman appear to watch her seduction of Sofia Boutella, Jones says, "So you made contact with the French operative." "Obviously," replies Theron.
The film from "John Wick" director David Leitch co-stars a shaven-headed James McAvoy as Theron's Berlin contact. It's based on the graphic novel series "The Coldest City," by Antony Johnston and illustrator Sam Hart.The movie plays SXSW and then opens nationwide July 28.
