Atomic Blonde (July 28) • A longtime stunt coordinator and one of the creative forces behind John Wick, David Leitch officially steps behind the camera with Atomic Blonde, starring Charlize Theron as an undercover agent kick-punching her way through a buffet line of Cold War-era stooges. Leitch has Deadpool 2 lined up for next year, so hopefully we get one decent genre film out of him before that abomination kills us all.

Logan Lucky (August 18) Steven Soderbergh is very bad at retirement. He claimed to call it quits following 2013’s Behind the Candelabra, but he has been working nonstop ever since, most notably on his Cinemax show The Knick. And now he even manages to beat the already overhyped Ocean’s Eight to the punch with his own heist movie, starring Channing Tatum and Adam Driver as brother thieves.
