Notoriously slow summer movies season still has success stories ("Wonder Woman," "Dunkirk," "Annabelle: Creation") but also many clunkers: a report card.
As of Saturday morning the animated feature and war epic seemed to be in a dead heat, but by Sunday morning, the dust had settled, and Christopher Nolan's film reigned.

'Atomic Blonde' director David Leitch talks to Yahoo Movies: 'maybe several sequels down the line, we figure out how to get John Wick into a time machine'
David Leitch has developed a reputation for his masterful orchestration of practical stunts and fight scenes — first as a stuntman, then as a stunt coordinator, and now as the shot caller behind the new Charlize Theron spy thriller, Atomic Blonde. If you’ve ever wondered how filmmakers like Leitch choreograph high-speed car chases, the director lets us in on a few secrets in our new installment of Instant Commentary (watch it above). Leitch narrates one of the film’s most pulsating sequences, which finds MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton (Theron) speeding through the streets of Berlin while baddies hunt her and the man she’s protecting (Spyglass, played by Eddie Marsan).

Charlize Theron tries to save MI6 while the Berlin Wall crumbles behind her in director David Leitch's action-heavy spy flick
The two best American action movies of the past decade are Mad Max: Fury Road and John Wick. Thus, it sounds like an extremely shrewd idea to take the former’s star, Charlize Theron, and pair her with the latter’s director, David Leitch (who’s also helming Deadpool 2), for Atomic Blonde, a stylish, espionage-tinged beat-‘em-up. Opening with a scantily clad Theron taping a recording wire to her body, and then engaging in a prolonged bit of hand-to-hand combat in a hallway against two thugs, it’s a decidedly John Wick-esque brand of rugged, expertly choreographed violence.
