Colombiana Trailer

"Never forget where you came from!" Columbia Pictures has debuted the first official trailer on Yahoo for Colombiana, the action flick starring Zoe Saldana from producer Luc Besson that's hitting theaters later this year. This is one of those movies I've been waiting to see a trailer for, ever since we debuted those first look photos, I knew this would be something exciting. It's basically a movie about if Zoe Zaldana were a badass James Bond/Jason Bourne combination, but female, and from Colombia. I just love this trailer, its got lots of energy and style, it's unique and entertaining, I'm totally there opening night. Check this out now!

Watch the first official trailer for Olivier Megaton's Colombiana:

Written by Besson and Robert Mark Kamen (who also wrote Taken and Transporter 3), Colombiana is set in Latin America and follows a young woman who, after witnessing her parents' murder as a child in Bogota, grows up to be a stone-cold assassin. Cat (Saldana) works for her uncle as a hitman by day, but her personal time is spent engaging in vigilante murders that she hopes will lead her to her ultimate target: the mobster responsible for her parents' death. From this trailer alone, it looks like it'll be awesome, and we'll let you know when we've got more. Sony Pictures has Colombiana scheduled for release September 2nd this fall.

Remember how The American looked awesome. It was a good film, but kind of a bore fest. I hope that doesn't happen. Although that doesn't look like it, sorta sounds similar. Watching the trailer, it looks like more of a commercialized version of it. They really needed to stop saying, "never forget where you came from." I smell a drinking game in the works.

Tyler_S on May 5, 2011


The American had slow moments but great moments as well. on May 5, 2011


I especially like the part where he builds the suppressor out of spare parts and auto mechanic tools. Never seen that sort of detail in an assassin movie.

JL on May 6, 2011


Feel like we've seen this before but what a great cast this film has. To be honest, I'd watch Zoe do anything. And if Lennie James is in this, you know its gonna rock!

"it's unique and refreshing" Seriously?

Jim on May 5, 2011


I thought it was cool to see a woman leading this kind of action, I don't know, I liked it. Not sure where all of the negativity is coming from. if you didn't think it was unique and refreshing, explain why. Saying "Seriously?" and that's it does not cut it.

Alex Billington on May 5, 2011


I think personally saying "Seriously" does cut it. It's certainly not unique, and like other people in comments below said, Salanda looks too frail for a killer. This movie trailer is miles away from being refreshing.

iglooz on May 5, 2011


Women can surprise you like that, though, man. She's not really frail, she's just light framed and lean. Besides, true strength is not just about your musculature, but your coordination, endurance, skill, technique, speed, reflexes, flexibility, etc.

JL on May 6, 2011


What do you mean too frail?my wife is thin framed and dominican also, and she kicks my ass!lol! But on the real, Angelina Jolie is very boney but kicks major ass! So your point isn't valied at all!

jah p on May 6, 2011



John Doe on May 11, 2011


I will say I can't agree with it looking "unique"...but holy crap, this looks badass! Also I will say that it does look like a film that will definitely stand out among others like it.

Danimal on May 5, 2011


Why didn't they show Callum Blue? Michael Vartan is partly Armenian. A lot of people don't know that.

Jennifer Gardner on May 5, 2011


Cliff Curtis? I'm in, the guy is a relative badass, on and Saldana is very easy on the eyes.

Xerxexx on May 5, 2011


Could not agree more, Cliff Curtis is awesome!

DwainIBe on May 5, 2011


I agree, guy is awesome in anything he goes.. Having said that, this movie looks like Salt but with a different lead.. and that movie really sucked

Tester on May 5, 2011


Salt was pretty good last summer...

jah p on May 6, 2011


yup, and i also like Jordi Molla (since i first saw him in bad boys 2). makes me believe he's a bad guy :))

Redguy on May 6, 2011


That doesn't look like Colombia at all... it looks like fucking Mexico

Reactor on May 5, 2011


I agree reactor, it does look like mexico!lol!! There's no color!

jah p on May 6, 2011


I love Zoe Saldana but she looks too frail to be a believable action star

Yves on May 5, 2011



Day on May 5, 2011


TRUE! You took the words right out of my mouth!

Blue Silver on May 5, 2011


You guys no nothing about dominican women!!lol!!They'll have you believing they look weak and frail, but that's all a front!These chicks can flat out fight!!

jah p on May 7, 2011


Dude... please shut the hell up.

John Doe on May 11, 2011


I won't forget where I came from Sir.

M.K. Nielsen on May 5, 2011


Never forget where you came from!

Jason Ip on May 5, 2011


Colombians are just going to looove the title of this movie. NOT!

Cinema Nostalgia on May 5, 2011


Hi Wayne!

Anonymous on May 5, 2011


Where have I seen the actor who is playing her dad (talking to her as a young girl) before?

Crazy on May 5, 2011


this concept is already played out. im bored

Talli on May 5, 2011


at this rate we all wont forget where she came from

kwame adansi on May 5, 2011


Finally a trailer that doesn't spoile the whole movie

Anonymous on May 5, 2011



John Doe on May 11, 2011


Luc Besson is the man.

David Perretta on May 5, 2011


Looks really good. But if they repeat 'Never forget where you came from' one more time..... LOL!

Ron on May 5, 2011



John Doe on May 11, 2011


La femme Nikita meets Leon. Anne Parillaud from Nikita was real thin but belivable so it can be done. Will surely check this one out.

Loser on May 5, 2011


WOW that was amazing! I've been waiting for Luc Beson to make a sequel to LEON as I'm sure Natalie Portman would be up for it.. this looks like it might be the closest we get.

Dominic on May 5, 2011


This'll be a watcher for sure, sold quite heavily on the lack of Saldana's clothing in this trailer, not sure if that was necessary?

Crapola on May 5, 2011


It was. Saldana is extremely hot with a gun and no pants! Hot enough to make me watch this

deckter on May 5, 2011


Fair do's. I quite liked the look of it without al the flashing, but I suppose with the recent spate of child-trained killer revenge tales out at the moment, they are maybe putting it out there that there's a bit more 'loving' going down.

Crapola on May 6, 2011


 I agree, i will watch this solely for the lack of clothing. Black chicks are hot.

Rodion32 on May 18, 2011


Goddamn - love the lady action heroes, and this is Zoe third time kicking ass . So what if she is little. You ever see the little guy in kung foo movies, always the baddest bitch.

Guest on May 5, 2011


This flick looks good, but Zoe looks too anorexic and weak to be taken seriously in a Liam Neeson-like role! I'll be sure to place in my Netflix queue, though!

Spider on May 5, 2011


sexy chick, great action, what else can you ask for

fancy pants on May 5, 2011


The trailer repeats the "Never forget" thing a tad much for my liking, but the movie looks potentially good - a hot chick kicking ass. What is refreshing to me is that it has a gritty quality because the stunts look real, rather than an overuse on CGI for unrealistic spectacle. Zoe is very watchable, but doesn't guarantee a good action movie. THE LOSERS, I'm looking at you...

SV7 on May 5, 2011



John Doe on May 11, 2011


Flail arms! Front kick! ... works every time

LW on May 6, 2011


Vengence, the world is sick of it! It's what's destroying us!

John on May 6, 2011


I think you're lost John, this is a movie board...not a "Life as we know it" board.

Xerxexx on May 6, 2011


Looks exactly like Le Femme Nikita. But looks fantastic! I will definitely be watching this and nice round house kick Zoe.

Brandon on May 6, 2011


Sexy. Me gusta.

JL on May 6, 2011


you had me at "never..."

Anonymous on May 6, 2011


All these Zoe is to frail to be a killer comments has anyone seen Angelina Jolie?

eugene on May 6, 2011


I said the same thing! Read my comments above eugene!

jah p on May 7, 2011


I think that's their point. It was "unbelievable" then as it is now.

John Doe on May 11, 2011


makes me wish there was a film for Alias

Boon on May 6, 2011


how can I EVER forget where I came from after watching that trailer!

Scared S#!tless on May 6, 2011



X13next on May 6, 2011


Me (my thoughts being a Colombian): 1) Make Colombia look like Mexico..check 2) Make Colombia look like the most dangerous place on earth...check 3) hire Cuban actors or ones that look like Cubans ...check 4) have a director o someone in charge to never actually take even 5 min to google something about Colombia besides its internal guerrilla and drug problems.....check. well another cheesy Hollywood movie milking my Country's situation........ which they didn't even took 5 min to research,bring it...well laugh as always watching it.(I hope is not as bad as the others) btw it reminded me of "MEDELLIN" the movie in

ADM86 on May 6, 2011


ADM86, Perro Come Perro(Dog eat Dog) was one of my favorite films to come out of Colombia.

jah p on May 7, 2011



John Doe on May 11, 2011


Fellow colombian here, agree 100%

Shea on Aug 26, 2011


Okay, I hear a lot of people cracking jokes about this not looking like Columbia, but I believe this story is set partially in the U.S. as well. Now, I'm no expert on Spanish, but I would say "Colombiana" would refer to the nationality of the character, not the country itself. As in, she is a Colombiana, a Columbian. Any Spanish-speaking readers care to clarify this for me?

JL on May 7, 2011


sick of her. she sold out. next.

Jonnyb on May 8, 2011



John Doe on May 11, 2011


Wow! This looks like they combined Teken with The Proffesional and put a woman in the lead. Pretty Bad Ass! This trailer looked cool, hope it's good.

Eric81375 on May 10, 2011


Awesome movie..Its avialable online on MOVIEGAZE.COM in HD, loved it. Highly Recommended.

Sudie on Aug 31, 2011


This movie was energetic and action packed. It was amazing to see saldana portrayed as such a vicious role. An invigorating display of acting as the vengeful hitwoman Great climatic film!
