With The Hunger Games raking in $214 million over its opening weekend and thetrailer for Snow White and the Huntsman topping last week’s Twitter trends, one thing seems sure: female action stars are having the best year ever, and it’s only March. And with Rooney Mara‘s Oscar nod for Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, teaser trailers forBreaking Dawn Part 2 (Kristen Stewart as vampire Bella!) and The Host giving us chills and Lily Collins confirming her role in The Mortal Instruments, the ladies leading up 2012/13′s biggest action flicks are in good company.
We took a look at the women who are establishing themselves as the action heroines of the future, as well as some actresses from whom we want to see more onscreen butt-kicking. Did we miss anyone on our list?
Kristen Stewart :-
We're finally going to see Kristen Stewart's blood-sucking prowess this fall in Breaking Dawn Part 2, when vampire Bella makes her long-awaited debut. But she'll be kicking butt and taking names this summer in Snow White in The Huntsman, in which the iconic fairytale heroine is an army-leading, sword-wielding warrior.
