'Atomic Blonde' Director: How I Made Five Kick-Ass Action Sequences

'Atomic Blonde' Director: How I Made Five Kick-Ass Action Sequences
"In The Third Man, there's no one getting kicked in the face."

Director David Leitch isn't saying the classic post-war thriller suffers from lacking a critical face-kicking element – but let's just say his new movie takes full advantage of that missed opportunity. Set in East and West Germany in the winter of 1989 – the moment in which the Berlin Wall finally came down – Atomic Blonde sounds on paper like a John le Carré novel, pitting weary spies against each in pursuit of a list that could leave them all exposed. The former stuntman-turned-filmmaker,

Atomic Blonde – Review

Yes, no doubt about it: Charlize Theron as a cool, efficient spy in Atomic Blonde makes James Bond look like a little old lady. This is the female action star we have been waiting for., even if the film is not perfect.

Atomic Blonde is adapted from a graphic novel, “The Coldest City,” directed by David Leitch, who helmed John Wick and is set to direct Deadpool 2. The film retains a kind of graphic novel noir visual style. Neon lights dominate, as does half-lighting and cigarette smoke. The visual style sets the mood well but the real fun of the film is in seeing Theron is the action sequences.

Charlize Theron and a wonderful handful of breath-taking, non-stop fight scenes are the major reason

Yet Another Woman-Led Action Film Will Be Directed By a Man

Charlize Theron in “Atomic Blonde”: Jonathan Prime/Universal Pictures

“Peppermint” has found a director. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the in-demand female-led action film will be helmed by Pierre Morel (“Taken”). Morel signed on to direct the revenge story after Lakeshore Entertainment acquired the film rights in “a fierce bidding war.”

Chad St. John (“London Has Fallen”) penned “Peppermint,” which follows “a young mother who finds herself with nothing to lose, and is now going to take from her rivals the very life they stole from her.” Lakeshore’s Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi, Richard Wright, and Eric Reid are producing. Sentient Entertainment’s Renee Tab and Chris Tuffin will exec produce.

Lakeshore reportedly shelled out “low-to-mid-seven figures” for the film with plans to fast-track development. Production is expected to kick off this fall.

“Female spins on the action genre are now heating up,” THR writes, specifically referencing the upcoming Charlize Theron-starrer “Atomic Blonde.” This is great and makes sense since women’s stories have a higher return on investment. However — as we previously noted about “Atomic Blonde” — these stories continue to be presented through the male gaze.

Woman-led/men-directed films like “Atomic Blonde,” “Sucker Punch,” and “Charlie’s Angels” often objectify women’s bodies though they try to present the overall message is “feminist” and pro-woman. (How often have you seen an action film where the woman dons a sexed-up disguise for some reason or another?) It’s also common to see female characters subjected to brutal, revenge-provoking violence (“Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”). Sometimes the women’s stories are usurped entirely by their male co-stars (“Sicario”).

As well-meaning as many of these films are, they’re skewed because they depict women through a man’s perspective. If studios are genuinely invested in telling action-oriented stories about women, it only makes sense that they also hire women to write and direct.

Yet Another Woman-Led Action Film Will Be Directed By a Man was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Interview – Wamg Talks To Cinderella Soundtrack Composer Patrick Doyle

On Friday, March 13, Disney will release the live action version of Cinderella from director Kenneth Branagh.

The original animated movie opened on February 15, 1950 to universal acclaim and 65 years later, Cinderella has become one of studio’s most treasured titles.

Branagh has once again turned to the Scottish composer Patrick Doyle for the score. The album features original music by Doyle marking the eleventh time he has teamed with Branagh.

In 1989, the director commissioned Doyle to compose the score for Henry V and they have subsequently collaborated on numerous pictures, including Dead Again, Mary Shelley’S Frankenstein, Much Ado About Nothing, Hamlet, As You Like It and Thor, and most recently Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.

Doyle scored Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes for 20th Century Fox and Brave for Disney Pixar, which was awarded Best Original Composition for Film at the International Music and Sound Awards.
