Get Ready For Some Serious Ass-Kicking – Courtesy Of Charlize Theron!
There is a new film coming out this summer that lets Charlize Theron fight with the big boys – and win!
First, check out the trailer for “Atomic Blonde!”
“Atomic Blonde” is a spy thriller directed by David Leitch. It’s based on Antony Johnston’s 2012 graphic novel “The Coldest City” – all about a spy, Charlize Theron, who has to find a list of double agents who are being smuggled into the West.
The film stars Charlize Theron, along with James McAvoy and John Goodman. As you saw from the trailer, Charlize really kicks into high action mode in the film – and there’s a good reason why!
Director David Leitch co-directed the first “John Wick” with Chad Stahelski – a terrific action film that also worked because it allowed star Keanu Reeves to do lots of action sequences!
I can see that influence: “John Wick” worked because Keanu Reeves trained and actually fought in the film – and we see that same intensity from Charlize Theron…especially the opening scene in the trailer that is shown in a wide follow shot – you see her doing the stunts, no quick cuts to hide stunt work…I have always applauded her willingness to put herself out there as an Actress…I mean, “Max Max Fury Road”…right?
By the way, I saw this red-band trailer for the first time at my favorite movie website, ActionAGoGo!

Blaxploitation Cinema Gets Tough!
In the 70’s, “blaxploitation” films like “Shaft” and “Super Fly” showcased strong black men who knew how to kick ass, and guess what? The women kicked some serious ass as well – especially Pam Grier!
Classic films like “Foxy Brown” and “Cleopatra Jones” are as fun to watch today as they were then…

Cinema history is filled with female-emplowered action classics. And it’s not only in the US!
They are doing the same thing in Japan as well:

In Japan, there are a ton of films that celebrate young women who aren’t afraid to fight back – like this one!

“Gun Woman” is way over-the-top, but filled with incredible action!

Bravo to Charlize Theron and all of these women who are kicking some serious butt!
