Zoe Saldana Premieres "Colombiana" in Miami
Gossip Date: 22-08-2011

Hitting the red carpet to promote her latest theatrical effort, Zoe Saldana looked stunning at the Miami screening of TriStar Pictures' "Colombiana" in Miami, Florida on Monday evening (August 22).

Held at Regal South Beach, the "Avatar" beauty dazzled her way down the arrivals area as she gears up for the Olivier Megaton directed film's August 26th release.

Also starring Michael Vartan and Amandla Stenberg, "Colombiana" tells the story of "a young woman who, after witnessing her parents' murder as a child in Bogota, grows up to be a stone-cold assassin."

In the film, Miss Saldana plays the assassin - a role in which she recently told the AP that she was quite comfortable with thanks to having hunted during her childhood.

The 33-year-old dished, "I was really prepared for the fighting and the guns. I knew I would have to learn new fighting techniques since Cataleya (Zoe's character) has a unique fighting style that she learned through her uncle on the streets. But the guns weren't an issue. I grew up around a family of hunters in the Caribbean and guns were always around. I've gone hunting before, too. I have a lot of respect for weapons. Now, I obviously didn't know about all the weapons used in this movie, but that allowed me to create my own sort of swagger."

She added, "The fight scenes were certainly easier for me because I'm a dancer. The fight scenes were all about reacting and deflecting, and that doesn't always look graceful. It takes a lot of rhythm and physical grace."
