We’ve had a few bits and bobs for Colombiana already, which looks like a pretty excellent action-lead for the once and future Uhuru (Zoe Saldana), you can read our review here.

We’ve also shared what we know so far of Rod Lurie’s upcoming remake of Sam Peckinpah’s notorious Straw Dogs, which may or may not blur the margins of moral questionability like the original did.

Today, we are delighted to bring you some splendid shots of the female leads of these two films, each sporting some hefty firepower. Saldana undoubtedly has the upper hand, wielding as she is a rocket launcher. Kate Bosworth by contrast, must content herself with a shotgun, though she looks pretty purposeful with it and one cannot escape the feeling that she ought not to be trifled with.

We’re not going to pretend that we expect these two films to be companion pieces to each other, but the pictures are cool, so here you are.

Thank you Rope of Silicon. We are grateful.

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, friendly, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days. He's pretty sure that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the most overrated mess in cinematic history.
