Here's How The Insane Car Stunts Of Atomic Blonde Were Pulled Off

If you didn’t get enough of Charlize Theron kicking ass in Mad Max: Fury Road or Fate of the Furious, she’s back in theaters this weekend as a badass Cold War spy driving awesome cars and kicking more ass in Atomic Blonde. Here’s how the movie pulled off some of its unbelievable car stunts.


If you were a fan of John Wick and its sequel, but thought that maybe you’d like to see a similar movie with Charlize Theron as an MI6 agent set in the 1980's, you’re in luck with Atomic Blonde.

Director David Leitch, who is best known for his stunt coordinating and director work on the John Wick movies, returns here, and sat with Yahoo! Movies to break down the intense getaway scene in the movie:

So we’re dealing with Charlize Theron racing around in Soviet-era cars, looking beat to hell and causing all kinds of carnage in a movie utilizing practical stunts while “I Ran” by A Flock of Seagulls plays, and it looks pretty spectacular.

If you haven’t caught wind of Atomic Blonde’s trailer yet, you can check it out here, otherwise you could just go see the movie which is in theaters now.

Just saw it last night and I absolutely loved it. Best part though is the Porsche.

Also loved all the Trabbies too.
