Vengeance has a new name and it is Zoe Saldana. Star Trek’s new Uhura has often talked about aspiring to be an action movie heroine, and later this year she gets her first big chance starring in the Luc Besson produced revenge film Colombiana. Check out the first teaser trailer below.
Zoe Saldana gets revenge in "Colombiana’
Here is the first teaser trailer for Colombiana, starring Zoe Saldana.
Colombiana is co-written and produced by Luc Besson (Taken, Le Femme Nikita) and directed by Oliver Megaton (Transporter 3). The film will be released September 2nd, 2011.
While Zoe Saldana may be at home on the red carpet and at fashion shows, her heroes are action film actresses like Sigourney Weaver and Linda Hamilton. With Avatar, The Losers and Colombiana, Saldana is well on her way to her goal of being an action movie star. But will this find its way into the Star Trek sequel. In 2009 Saldana told TrekMovie that she waned to "kick some ass" in the sequel, and in 2010 the actress said producer JJ Abrams promised her a fight scene.
So perhaps in the sequel there will be less smooching with Spock and more kicking of butt for Uhura.
You looking at me, punk?
POLL: More action for Uhura in Star Trek sequel?
Should JJ Abrams and team give Saldana’s Uhura the action she craves?
