The highly-anticipated second trailer to "Atomic Blonde" just dropped, and moviegoers are stoked Charlize Theron is starring as bisexual female MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton. But after only two trailers, the film is already drawing comparisons to Angelina Jolie's 2010 blockbuster "Salt." Both films portray striking female assassins embroiled in Russian espionage—and some critics point to both characters as just two more examples of the "fighting fuck toy" archetype. What do you think? 🎥👊
