Charlize Theron definitely rivals Scarlett Johansson in the female action hero category. Just check out the latest trailer for Theron’s upcoming action thriller Atomic Blonde.

Here’s the official synopsis: Theron plays MI6’s most lethal assassin, the crown jewel of Her Majesty’s Secret Intelligence Service. Agent Lorraine Broughton is equal parts spycraft, sensuality and savagery, willing to deploy any of her skills to stay alive on her impossible mission.  Sent alone into Berlin to deliver a priceless dossier out of the destabilized city, she partners with embedded station chief David Percival (James McAvoy) to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies. Oh, and she also has a big target on her back, which makes her work that much more difficult.

Watch the trailer!

Atomic Blonde also stars John Goodman, Sofia Boutella and Toby Jones. It opens July 28.
