14Classic Spy Thriller

Charlize Theron in Atomic Blonde

If you love a good spy thriller (and really, who doesn't?) then Atomic Blonde might just be your favorite movie of the summer.

During the Cold War, few locations were "colder" than Berlin. Split in two by the Berlin Wall, it was the unofficial border between East and West, and both sides

peered across at the other with a mixture of loathing and suspicion. On both sides of this stalemate, spies operated in the shadows, stealing secrets, killing rivals, and doing anything they could to strengthen their side's cause.

Atomic Blonde is set at a time when the U.S.S.R. is crumbling and Berlin is a powder-keg of uncertainty. One wrong move is enough to land even the most seasoned operative in the nearest morgue. Seeing Theron's Lorraine navigate that proverbial minefield will be very intriguing.
