The Pulp Fiction director does not shy away from expressing his opinions on films he likes and does not like. In a podcast with Bill Maher, a comedian, writer, and producer, Tarantino criticized the Oscar-winning film 1917 and Charlize Theron’s Atomic Blonde. He said, 

“When I’m watching like the long fight in ‘Atomic Blonde,’ I’m like, ‘God. This is amazing! This is f*cking amazing! OK… wait a minute, no. The shot took a shit. The shot’s not going on this long, it took a shit.’ So it’s all tainted. It’s all tainted. Because obviously, they didn’t carry it through.”

 Atomic Blonde will be given a sequel with Charlize Theron reprising her role as Lorraine Broughton. Theron will also come on board as the producer for the film, she spoke about producing films and how important it is for a young actor to produce a film. 

“I now encourage young actors, all the time, to produce. It’s so valuable to understand the logistics of putting a film together, and it does give you a whole new appreciation for the entirety of making films. Actors can be narcissistic. They can sit in their trailers and complain about their turnarounds all the time, but once you become a producer, you become way more empathetic to all of those things.”

David Leitch the John Wick director will return for the sequel, there is no official date for the release of the film. No further information has been released on the film besides the director and lead cast. The original was released in 2017 and its box office collection was close to $100 Million, the sequel, if released in 2023 or 2024, will be coming after 7 to 8 years which is a lot. The makers will need to birth a fresh perspective around a formula that is done to death.
