PICK OF THE WEEK: 'Colombiana'

This upcoming revenge-themed action thriller looks promising for exactly two reasons — the star and the director.

Actress Zoe Saldana, seen in "Avatar," "Star Trek" and "The Losers," is a ray of sunshine on a dreary day; rare, beautiful and you never want her to go away. In a word, dang.

The film is written and produced by Luc Besson, like many a late-summer action-thriller, and is directed by Olivier Megaton.

Last seen directing the underwhelming "Transporter 3," Megaton gets a pass because, well, his last name is "Megaton."

This movie will certainly be no "Casablanca," but at the very least it may give our generation its Pam Grier-esque exploitation icon in Saldana.
