Movie Marketing Monday


Colombiana

I love that Hollywood has jumped back on the female action hero bandwagon. Having said that, why does it feel like Saldana already covered this exact same role in The Losers?



What’s Your Number?

I have said it before, and I will say it again, Anna Faris should be a much bigger star than she currently is. Hopefully this romantic comedy will finally elevate her status with mainstream audiences.

  1. I thought Saldana was good in The Losers, the film got undeserved bad reviews.

  2. @Ricky - I thought The Losers was just "okay". The comics were far more engaging. The Losers movie felt like they were trying too hard to set up a franchise instead of focusing on telling a strong story.

  3. I'm not sure how to feel about COLOMBIANA. There were rumors circulating that Besson was planning to do a sequel to THE PROFESSIONAL, following Matilda in her adult life. Looks like COLOMBIANA is going to have to suffice - although, I don't really buy Zoe Saldana as a vengeful assassin...

  4. @Rachel - I would not be surprised if the Colombiana script was originally written as The Professional sequel. Though the trailer plays more like one of the many La Femme Nikita adaptations.

  5. I saw both these trailers last week. Colombiana is right there on my comfy zone and I always enjoy Anna Faris...So funny in House Bunny.

    Popcorn fodder all day long!

  6. @Custard - I quite enjoyed The House Bunny. Faris carried that entire film so well.
