Carl F. Bucherer Returns to the Big Screen and Red Carpet with Atomic Blonde 

The Action-Packed Spy Thriller Atomic Blonde from Director and Carl F. Bucherer Brand Ambassador David Leitch Premieres In Berlin

New York, NY (July 18, 2017) –

Charlize Theron stars in Atomic Blonde, along with such leading names as James McAvoy, John Goodman, Sofia Boutella, and Til Schweiger. The extraordinary timepieces from Carl F. Bucherer also play a starring role in the movie, continuing the Swiss watch manufacturer’s successful involvement with the movie industry. Charlize Theron and a host of Hollywood stars walked the red carpet at last night’s Berlin Atomic Blonde premiere, which took place at  the  theater in Potsdamer Platz.

Two of Carl F. Bucherer brand ambassadors brought the film to life, with David Leitch directing the action thriller. As co-director of John Wick and executive producer of John Wick: Chapter 2, Leitch has demonstrated his mastery of the action-thriller genre. The film also stars Swiss actor and Carl F. Bucherer ambassador Daniel Bernhardt as the villain.  Watches from the Lucerne-based brand also play an important role – but you’ll have to watch the movie to find out more details.

Carl F. Bucherer also supported its brand ambassadors as the exclusive partner for the movie’s world premiere in Berlin. Among the highlights, a watchmaker’s bench appeared on the red carpet, where a Carl F. Bucherer watchmaker offered insights into this traditional craft. The connection between the world of cinema and the world of watchmaking runs much deeper than this event. “Hollywood makes dreams come true on the big screen – our watches make dreams come true on your wrist,” says Sascha Moeri, CEO of Carl F. Bucherer. “David Leitch, who has been a partner of ours for many years, has produced another incredible movie with Atomic Blonde. We are delighted that our watches also play a starring role in the movie.”

A Fitting Location 

It is no coincidence that Berlin was chosen as the venue for this exclusive premiere. The spy thriller’s action unfolds in the streets of the German capital in 1989. Top agent Lorraine Broughton, played by Charlize Theron, has been tasked with an important assignment – and she is ready to do anything to complete it. Sensual, exciting, and thrilling: Atomic Blonde demonstrates that director David Leitch is completely in his element when directing an action movie.
