Today I got off of work and suddenly had the urge to watch Columbiana. Which led me to think about what an amazing actress Zoe Saldana is. So instead of focusing on Columbiana, I would like to direct the attention of everyone reading this post to Mrs. Saldana. This beautiful woman has been generating fans since 2000 with her first film Center Stage and always does an awesome job performing her roles.
The great thing about Saldana is the diversity in her roles and films over the years. Saldana has had roles in some action films, romantic comedies, and even starred in one of the most successful epic science fiction films. Avatar released in 2009 this film broke multiple box office records and was considered Saldana's "breakthrough" film. Although she was an alien hunter, her role as Neytiri was literally award-winning getting her a Saturn Award and Empire Award for Best Actress. For anyone who may not remember Avatar, here's the trailer just so I don't give away too many details :).
After Avatar, Saldana starred in great role after great role. In 2010 she appeared in The Losers, which earned close to 38 million in sales. The same year she also starred in Takers, Death at a Funeral, and Burning Palms. After her role in Columbiana in 2011, she went on to follow with a few other big movies and has more to come. In 2013 she starred in Star Trek Into Darkness, which was a box office success, the she went on to star in Guardians of the Galaxy in 2014 which became the third highest-grossing film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the highest-grossing superhero film, and the third highest-grossing film that year.
With the film record she's holding now, I'm exciting for the films she will be starring in this year and a few of the ones she has to come.
