Charlize Theron slowly stands up from an ice bath Her back emerges sinewy and covered in myriad dark purple bruises When she looks in the mirror a badly blackened eye stares back This is not a woman to be crossed Theron plays Lorraine Broughton an MI6 agent sent on a treacherous mission to Berlin in 1989 five days before the Wall falls The movie is a neon spree through underground parties and glittering speakeasies backed by thumping 80s pop music Lorraine based on a character from the graphic novel The Coldest City isnt like most female heroes: shes not a grieving widow shes not a protective mother and she definitely doesnt have daddy issues "Writers are always giving women dead husbands or kids to make you emotionally invest" says Theron over tea at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles this June The 41-year-old actor is still wearing athletic gear from a workout with her trainer for the movie though filming has long wrapped "Men go on a fun journey Women get a long backstory so youre already forgiving them for what theyre about to do" MORE: Review: Atomic Blonde Kicks You Where It Hurts Not Lorraine She does everything the men always haveexchanging blows and bulletsexcept backward and in heels Until she slips off one of those heels and wields it as a weapon This isnt Therons first time playing an unapologetic brawler The Oscar winner has been a prostitute turned serial killer a failing and bitter author Snow Whites black-hearted tormentor and a one-armed road warrior "I play effed-up vulnerable women who have to be strong in order to survive" says Theron Atomic Blonde out July 28 comes at a turning point for women-led action films In June Wonder Woman shattered outdated notions that audiences dont want to watch women kick butt Its currently the highest-grossing movie of the summer bringing in $389 million in the US People want to see female action heroes The question that matters now is how quickly Hollywood will allow them to go dark After all male action heroes have run the gamut from basically good (Indiana Jones) to explicitly bad (Dirty Harry) for decades Wonder Woman is the former a near perfect goddess who strives to always do whats morally right Therons Lorraine is anything but (Story continues below) Charlize Theron photographed at the Universal Lot in Los Angeles on June 8 2017 Amanda Demme for TIME Theron grew up on a farm in South Africa Her father struggled with alcohol and was abusive When Theron was 15 her mother Gerta shot and killed him in self-defense But Therons mother taught her not to wallow in self-pity "Im not the first person and wont be the last person to go through something traumatic" she explained on her friend Aisha Tylers podcast Girl on Guy last year By the time she was 17 Theron had moved to America to study at the Joffrey Ballet School in New York When a series of injuries left her unable to dance she began to pursue acting Casting directors pegged her for the ingenue: her character in Woody Allens 1998 Celebrity was actually named "Supermodel" Therons big break came in 2003 after Patty Jenkins who also directed Wonder Woman cast her in Monster as a prostitute who avenges her rape by murdering her clients Theron won an Oscar for the role the characters toughness mirroring her own "Shes a real-life badass" says Jenkins "And she can do whatever she wants on film" Adds Keanu Reeves who co-starred with her in The Devils Advocate (1997) and was her sparring partner as she prepared for Atomic Blonde "She brings brutal grace to her characters" Still her first major foray into the action genre 2005s Aeon Flux was a flop Hollywood took that films failurealong with Catwoman and Elektra which also bombed around the same timeas a sign women couldnt headline a profitable action flick "We get screwed because one movie doesnt work" says Theron "I experienced that with Aeon Flux" She admits the film was flawed but then "It was like Your chance is up" A decade later Theron starred in Mad Max: Fury Road part of a wave of filmsincluding the Hunger Games series and Star Wars: The Force Awakensthat definitively proved the opposite That movie was marketed as a testosterone-fueled car chase across a post-apocalyptic wasteland But anyone who saw it quickly realized the story actually belongs to Furiosa the one-armed rebel Theron played to stoic perfection Sure Max (Tom Hardy) was in the car but it was Furiosas mission to smuggle a group of sex slaves to an all-female paradise that captured audiences and turned the film into a $378 million box-office smash "It took me years to find the skin that I would be comfortable in to play this woman" she says "I had such a sense of relief when we realized she needed to be in a T-shirt not a Barbarella outfit and I needed to shave my head" Focus Features Atomic Blonde is brutal Lorraine is lethal crafting weapons out of well everything A corkscrew becomes a shiv A backpack becomes a cudgel A hot plate becomes a hammer And in a nod to a classic technique taught in womens self-defense classes keys become brass knuckles Her foes are just as savage The films violence will make some viewers uncomfortable In one sequence that only lasts about 20 minutes but feels like an hour Lorraine is thrown down a flight of stairs shot at stabbed and repeatedly punched Much of it is shot in a single excruciating take that leaves Therons character and one of her assailants gasping for breath and struggling to stand upright Its a technical marvel Its also a marvel if you can watch it without cringing Director David Leitch got the job by championing this blunt approach It had worked for him on 2014s John Wick starring Reeves as a vengeful assassin Leitchs wife Kelly McCormick (one of Atomic Blondes producers) encouraged him to do the same with Theron whose production company optioned the Cold War story some seven years ago Most directors are reluctant to show women with black eyes let alone being hit So they pit female heroes against female villains or pretend petite women can flip 200-lb men or simply cut away during fight scenes Leitch argued there was no reason to "make allowances for the fact that shes a woman" Adds Leitch "For me its more compelling to be with her while shes suffering" Theron agreed "Its a disservice to women Part of it is male filmmakers not being comfortable with putting a woman in that position" she says "If a female spy is sent into the field why wouldnt she experience the same sh-t as a male spy" Before filming began Theron spent four hours a day training at the gym Leitch founded with his John Wick co-director Chad Stahelski They concentrated on realistic moves a woman could actually use against a 6 ft 4 in opponent "Theres a lot of roundhouse low leg kicks and throat chops and elbow strikes" the director says "Elbows and knees are really big for generating power and leverage for a smaller attacker" Thats not to say Atomic Blonde doesnt indulge in some fantasy Lorraines garter belts tight sweaters and white pleather coat that the actor likens to "a shiny condom" were inspired by the work of German photographer Helmut Newton The films vision of a crumbling East Berlin still manages to be glamorous with its cast of sexy unhinged spies including James McAvoy as another British agent who has "gone native" He struts around Berlin to the tune of "99 Luftballons" and "Blue Monday" in a fur coat and stunner shades And then theres the scene in which Lorraine seduces a fellow female spy (Sofia Boutella) originally a man in the graphic novel Its Bond-like: theres no falling in love just falling into bed "Some reviewers said The sex scene is too aggressive I dont want to be crass but its not a lovemaking scene Its two people getting it on" says Theron "When we say we need to own our sexuality that means everything about our sexuality It made me realize we have to push even harder to overturn old ideas of what women should act like in these movies" Mad Max: Fury Road Warner Bros Pictures We used to get about one female action hero per year If we were lucky we got one icon per decade: Ellen Ripley in Alien Sarah Connor in Terminator the Bride in Kill Bill Sigourney Weaver who arguably brought the first female action hero to life in Ripleya part by the way originally written for a mansays that roles for women have improved greatly "There isnt that thing that used to drive me crazy whenever I read the part: those scenes where the woman stops being effective and has a little breakdown to show you shes still a female entity" she says "Now they just get on with it" After all theres no one way to be a hero Because Lorraine isnt Wonder Woman who isnt Sarah Connor who isnt Ripley "Im trying to break these forms of how women ought to behave in movies" Theron says "Maybe they shouldnt behave at all" This appears in the August 7 2017 issue of TIME Write to Eliana Dockterman at elianadockterman@timecomTwenty years ago when the Spice Girls released their debut single the anthem “Wannabe”which was dropped in the UK on July 8 1996it quickly became clear that they had something that listeners “really really want” The song soared to the top of the charts in 31 countries and was at one point considered the best-selling debut single of all-time according to Billboard But they didn’t just make a splash in the world of pop music They were also arguably the most recognizable face of an important moment in the history of the UK: the mid-’90s celebration of youth culture that’s sometimes known as “Cool Britannia” and an attendant shift in the UK politics From Charles Saatchi’s patronage of the “Young British Artists” to Britpop bands Blur and Oasisand even an eponymous Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavoranything English was hip (Case in point: Geri Halliwell’s Union Jack minidress) As Newsweek put it in 1996 London “the coolest city on the planet” was “back” By 1997 the year of “Spice Up Your Life” Tony Blair and other proponents of “New Labour” sought to “spice up” Britain’s image after nearly two decades of Conservative Party rule by linking the Labour Party to the pop culture trend As Rolling Stone reported Blair had said that the Spice Girls’ “Say You’ll Be There” was one of his favorite records of 1996 and could name more members of the group than Conservative rival John Major After a poll rated Blair Britain’s most popular leader since World War II a 1998 TIME feature reported that his effort to associate himself with modern British icons like the Spice Girls was part of his mission to “modernize” the nation and its politics: The British economy is booming: the pound is up and unemployment is down Peace and prosperity Who could ask for anything more But just in case someone does there’s Britain’s current boom in the arts Whether it’s movies like the The Full Monty bands like Oasis and the Spice Girls or designers like Stella McCartney the hottest thing going these days seems to come from what is cloyingly known as “Cool Britannia” And while Blair admits that this artistic blossoming was under way before he took office he and his coterie of young advisers have relentlessly even shamelessly courted and promoted the hip as a way of announcing to the world that Britain is changing Other TIME magazine articles characterized the effort as “Tony Blair’s late-’90s attempt to sex up the UK’s image” and reported that “he has set himself the visionary target of ‘rebranding’ Britain Instead of enjoying this country of nice old things he wants to create a new ‘cool Britannia’” Get your history fix in one place: sign up for the weekly TIME History newsletter Wordsmiths of the 1990s however weren’t the ones to invent the term “Cool Britannia” In fact a psychedelic pop group called the Bonzo Dog Band had made the same play on “Rule Britannia” on their 1967 album Gorilla Some sociologists and experts in media and cultural studies argued that the renewed popularity of the phrase in the mid-1990s was appropriate After all that 1990s moment was in some ways a throwback to ’60s-era giddiness over another cultural boom in London which had coincided with the election of another Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson “This spring as never before in modern times London is switched on” TIME had declared in an April 15 1966 cover story about Swinging London “Ancient elegance and new opulence are all tangled up in a dazzling blur of op and pop The city is alive with birds (girls) and Beatles…the Rolling Stones whose music is most in right now reign as a new breed of royalty…In a once sedate world of faded splendor everything new uninhibited and kinky is blooming at the top of London life” But the idea of “Cool Britannia” as soft power had its skeptics “There is a particular danger in putting ‘creative’ industries and youth culture at the centre of a government-sponsored effort to change Britain’s image” a March 12 1998 Economist article argued “These are things that depend on fashion and spontaneity But few things are less fashionable or spontaneous than a grinning politician in a suit” Some say the optimism of “Cool Britannia” has since wanedand now more than ever it’s clear that British politics are bigger than any girl group Yet the buzz about a possible Spice Girls reunion tour and rumors about a reunion documentary show that at least that aspect of “Cool Britannia” won’t fall out of style anytime soon Write to Olivia B Waxman at oliviawaxman@timecom In todays digital world, Now the trio has created a model to examine in more detail how a cap-and-trade market might impact whale populations and how the costs and benefits would change for people who want to hunt or conserve them The model combines whale population dynamics with an economic model of demand for whales and shows what happens to prices and populations when whalers and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) exchange shares They examined the dynamics for three kinds of whales: minkes bowheads and gray whales North Atlantic minke whales number about 72000 and 550 are caught annually including for subsistence as well as for scientific whaling The model predicts that conservationists wouldn’t have any incentive to buy shares of minke whales until hunters deplete the population to a level of concern which could take 10 years But with bowheads which are slowly recovering from intense whaling in the 19th century conservations groups would be highly motivated to buy all the shares for 13 years until the population grows to the carrying capacity And they would purchase shares in gray whales for 30 years With all three species prices converged on $10000 a share The total cost to buy all the whale shares of all three species over 20 years would run about $114 million the researchers calculate Considered on an annual basis that’s a fraction of what NGOs spend now on whale campaigns So even at that price conservationists could save more whales for less money than they do now the authors conclude And whalers would benefit when they sell shares because they make money without having to get their feet wet “[A] well-designed whale conservation market simultaneously enhances conservation welfare and whaler welfare relative to the status quo" Gerber and colleagues write "In some sense this is unsurprising: Allowing voluntary trade rather than forbidding it tends to make both parties in an economic transaction better off” Palumbi however says he doesn’t put too much stock in these numbers "The paper is almost certainly wrong in detail about whales and whaling" he says "It misses many of the messy realities of modern whaling such as the huge subsidy that Japan gives its whalers" The
