Charlize Theron is back in theaters this weekend, ready to kick some ass in Atomic Blonde. If you’re checking out the movie, you might be wondering if you have to sit through the credits for an extra scene at the end. The answer is no, once the movie is over you can leave your seats. However, that doesn’t mean it’s the last time you see Theron as British spy Lorraine Broughton.
The film, directed by David Leitch and released by Universal’s Focus Features, has no scenes after the credits begin. There are also no extras playing while the credits roll. The film runs 115 minutes.
Atomic Blonde debuted at the South By Southwest film festival in Austin earlier this year and has earned decent reviews. It has a 78 percent Rotten Tomatoes score, with most critics agreeing that the film’s strength is its action sequences. That should come as no surprise as Leith also co-directed Keanu Reeves’ John Wick and is working on Deadpool 2. He is also an award-winning stunt coordinator.
Leitch told ScreenRant that he has high hopes for the Lorraine character and thinks she could be the next Jason Bourne or Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible character). He hopes a sequel is made.
“I hope so. I think it will all come down to business at the end of the day. The will is there on our side,” the director told ScreenRant. “I think all of the creatives involved on Atomic Blonde want to do future films and it’s really… hopefully, Wonder Woman is an indication of a female, sort of action film and maybe we can latch on to some of that success and people will see Lorraine kick ass and we can do that again.”
Theron told The Hollywood Reporter that she is starting to talk with the producers about the future of Lorraine.
“That’s going to take a while to figure out. We’re starting that conversation right now. We’re definitely talking,” she told THR.
Atomic Blonde is based on the comic book The Coldest City by Anthony Johnston and Sam Hart. The story is set in 1989, just before the collapse of the Berlin Wall, and Lorraine has to stop an espionage ring that is killing other undercover agents. The cast also features James McAvoy, John Goodman and Sofia Boutella.
