  1. I’m so glad that Atomic Blonde 2 is on the way (and I’m thankful that’s even possible in the current situation) but more shocking was to read that there’s gonna be a “Fury Road” prequel but without Charlize Theron!

  2. Hi, if you read this comment, don’t waste your time any further and watch that Jodie Comer clip, even if you’ve never seen a minute of Killing Eve in your life.
