Even if you have never watched a scene from the cinematic blockbuster 'Avatar', there is no way that you haven't enjoyed the energetic acting of Zoe Saldana in at least on the other high grossing movies she has starred in (e.g. the newest edition to the 'Star Trek' franchise, 'The Losers', or 'Takers'). She has proven time and again that she has the superb performance talent and physical agility that just may catapult her on the way to becoming this generation's next female action super star.
This time Saldana is headlining the title role in the new action thriller 'Columbiana'. The plot centers around a young woman who witnesses the horrific murder of her parents when she is only a small child. The shock from the brutal experience draws her into a life as a highly skilled female assassin who is ultimately seeking to avenge her parents' deaths.
'Columbia' co-stars Micharel Vartan (TV's 'Hawthorne' and 'Alias') as the love interest for Saldana's character Cataleya Restrepo. The action drama was directed by Olivier Megaton and is scheduled for release on August 26th.
