Atomic Blonde just shot right up our list of most anticipated films of 2017.

After the thrilling 15-second teaser was released yesterday, the full trailer for the action film starring Charlize Theron as basically a female John Wick has been unveiled.

And it looks incredible.

The trailer starts with a one-take fight scene that shows director John Leitch knew exactly what worked on John Wick, which he co-directed with Chad Stahelski. Namely, just letting the fighting do the talking.

Queen's 'Killer Queen' then starts to play as Theron's undercover MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton - "an expert in escape and evasion" - travels to Berlin and starts to track down a list of double agents, while investigating the murder of one of her colleagues.

She teams up with Berlin station chief David Percival (James McAvoy) for the mission, which sees her get pretty close to a French operative played by The Mummy's Sofia Boutella.

And if we weren't sold already on the film, Theron's character ends the trailer by using a very unique method of abseiling out of a building that does not end well for her foe.

McAvoy's character sums it up pretty well for us: "I think I f**king love you."

Atomic Blonde also stars John Goodman, Til Schweiger, Eddie Marsan and Toby Jones, and is based on graphic novel The Coldest City, which was adapted by 300's Kurt Johnstad.

It's unleashed in US cinemas on July 28 and UK cinemas on August 11.
