We have a new clip for Atomic Blonde from EW we get see Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) kick all sorts of butt in thigh high boots. The choreography looks fantastic; this isn’t a graceful battle but a bloody one. She doesn’t look graceful as she fights, she looks dangerous, and that’s not common for female action scenes. Director David Leitch talked about the advantages to have a lead actor willing to do their own stunts like Theron.
“When you have someone who can do it, you have a lot more freedom in how you want to express it visually,” he says. “In terms of martial arts style, she gave me the flexibility to do everything I wanted to do.”
Someone needs to sign Theron to a superhero role yesterday.
