From the movie making machine that is Luc Besson (and from another Besson / Robert Mark Kamen-penned script) comes the new action movie: Colombiana.

Colombiana Trailer

The film stars Zoe Saldana, who has recently been seen in such action-fare as Star Trek, The Losers and James Cameron's Avatar, and will soon be seen in the Star Trek sequel. Here she plays Cataleya, an orphaned hitman (or is that hitwoman?!) for hire who is searching for her parent's killer.

Besson, once again, has hired Oliver Megaton - director of Transporter 3, and owner of one of the coolest monikers in the history of the world! - to call the directing shots, and has enlisted a pretty decent cast: Michael Vartan (from the excellent Alias TV series), Jordi Molla (the Spanish actor, star of Jamon, Jamon, Blow and Bad Boys 2), Callum Blue (British actor, star of the awesome TV show Dead Like Me), and the ever-reliable Cliff Curtis (Three Kings, Training Day and Live Free or Die Hard / Die Hard 4.0).

As is usual for a Luc Besson production, it all seems very 'genre' and like familiar territory is being trodden on...repeatedly!...but from the evidence of the trailer, it's lookin' very nice. Very nice indeed!

Colombiana is out now in the US, and September 9th in the UK.


Reantimator don't like cussin'...unless it's funny, so have your say - as long as you say it nicely!
