This is very important because if you are under the assumption that just buying a ticket and watching the movie Wonder Woman is enough to get more movies about women, made by women, trust me it isn’t.
I want Theron or whoever to make more female centered movies (With the exception of killing off the only Lesbian characters), Theron should have done better on that. Katherine Bigelow is one of my favorite directors and has won a Academy award for The Hurt locker, but still no movies with a queer female lead.
Nonetheless a female driven action movie that had a same sex romance and where the lead actually did the majority of her ow n stunts is not guaranteed and that means that Atomic Blonde could have used more help. Nonetheless at earning nearly 90m world-wide and growing, Atomic Blonde2 may just become a reality.
The 1980 movie Cruising starred Al Pacino as a New York City detective on the trail of psychopath infiltrating New York City gay clubs and viciously slaying homosexuals.
Pacino plays Detective Steve Burns and is ordered to don leather attire, hang at the city’s S&M joints and keep an eye out for the killer. But as Steve becomes immersed in club hopping, he begins to identify with the subculure that he begins to question his boundaries and the audience to question who the ‘real’ killer actually is.
