An undercover MI6 agent is sent to Berlin during the Cold War to investigate the murder of a fellow agent and recover a missing list of double agents.
It was originally hoped that David Bowie would play a part in the film, although he turned down the offer shortly before his death.
East and West do not mistrust each other because we're armed. We're armed because we mistrust each other. Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.
When Lorraine Broughton enters Berlin she is given a visa limited to the time necessary to prepare the return of James Gascoigne. She even fakes an application to gain some more days. This might have been necessary in the fifties or sixties. However in 1973 the United Kingdom became part of the EU (or EC at the time). As a citizen of another EU state agent Broughton did not need a visa to enter Germany and she could have stayed indefinitely. In fact, although not impossible, it was quite unlikely in 1989 that custom checks for flights within the EU would have been executed at all.
Writing credit for 'London Calling' lists Trooper Headon. It should be Topper Headon.
In India, mandatory censorship cuts were required before the film could be granted an 'A' certificate from the CBFC (Indian Film Censors); these cuts completely removed the sex scene between Theron and Boutella, sight of Theron's bare bottom, shots of a woman's nipples through her t-shirt and a scene in which Theron is shown topless, in addition to this cuts were made to the subtitles removing uses of the terms: 'c**t', 'cock, 'balls', 'bitch', 'prick' and 'cocksucker'. However the language itself is still audible on the soundtrack. No cuts were made to violence.
