Let’s continue the comic-book film trailers, shall we? With Atomic Blonde‘s new trailer, there’s New Order and Depeche Mode strike just the right late-80s vibe, and there’s plenty of John Wick-esque mayhem to keep action fans happy. Though as much as I dig Kanye’s stuff, I was hoping for more straight-up Mode, and less sampling. It is supposed to be 1989 in the film, after all. Synopsis!
An undercover MI6 agent is sent to Berlin during the Cold War to investigate the murder of a fellow agent and recover a missing list of double agents.
I may feel differently once I finally dig into the graphic novel, but I hope not. But right this minute? I’m digging this blend of action, tongue-in-cheek deadpan, and espionage thriller. I’m digging it a lot.
Atomic Blonde comes for you July 28th, 2017.
