Miss Bala Clip

In the exclusive Miss Bala clip above, cast members Gina Rodriguez and Ismael Cruz Cordova, and director Catherine Hardwicke and stunt coordinator Justin Yu, delve into the creation of the movie's many action scenes. This is a remake of the 2011 Mexican film of the same name, which was a bit more of a crime drama than an all-out action film. Obviously, this new take on the story changes things a bit.

In Miss Bala, "Gloria (Gina Rodriguez), drives to Tijuana, Mexico to visit her best friend who is competing in the local "Miss Baja" beauty pageant. During a night out, her friend is abducted and Gloria finds herself a pawn in a dangerous game being played by the CIA, the DEA and a charismatic yet ruthless cartel kingpin. Finding power she never knew she had, Gloria plays one organization against the other, as she seeks to rescue her friend. Surviving will require all of her cunning, inventiveness, and strength."
