I have always admired Charlize Theron. I have seen her act in different movie genre and I am always mesmerized by her eyes. It's like she does not need to speak much because her eyes convey the message.
Charlize Theron as an MI6 spy
People have been raving her Mad Max character. Unfortunately, I have not had the chance to watch the movie. Hopefully, soon I can find the time and then maybe (just maybe right a little review about it).
Well, Theron now returns to the big screen with yet another outstanding performance. Collider reports that the actress will take on the role of Lorraine Broughton, a top-level MI6 spy that has a special task in Berlin.
The website had the first few images of the movie and they look intense - especially with Theron battling two police agents (I think) in the kitchen. The film is set in the late 1980s. I guess that explains James McAvoy's rather eccentric attire (or that could just be me. Bell bottoms? Isn't that the 70s?)
David Leitch only has high praises for Theron
According to Entertainment Weekly, the actress made sure that she gives justice to her role. How? She trained with her director, David Leitch (yep, the same guy who directed Keanu Reeve's John Wick) and his team of fighters. They worked together for four to five hours for three months!
Leitch, on the other hand, described Theron as extraordinary. In his own words, he says seeing Theron work was "refreshing."
It’s refreshing to find an actor who can do these long, long takes, memorize the choreography, maintain the character, and deliver a performance,” said the Atomic Blonde director.
To keep the suspense going, the film released two 15-second teasers to give moviegoers a sneak peek of this action suspense film. This is quite a different Charlize Theron, I might say. Hopefully, this will exceed our expectations.
