Rising star alert! The time to recognize Gal Gadot as an actress is upon us. She's come such a long way from having a mere small role in the 2010 Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz movie Knight and Day? She's best known for her role as Gisele in the Fast and Furious movies, and even with her action-packed role people still didn't know her name. 2016 is about to change that in a big way.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

By now, most people know that the former Miss Universe contestant, Gal Gadot, landed the role of Wonder Woman in what is arguably the most anticipated movie of all time, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This movie will mark the first time that the Holy Trinity of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman has graced the silver screen in live-action. Actually, it will be the first time we have seen a live-action Wonder Woman on the movie screen ever, which is a pretty big deal and heavy responsibility for Gal. Gal is starring in the movie alongside an all-star cast that includes Henry Cavill, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Holly Hunter and Ben Affleck. Obviously, this will be Gal's most popular movie in 2016, but it won't be her only big movie next yet.

Triple 9

As you can see Triple Ninelooks to be a crazy, sexy and cool heist movie that will deliver a lot of exciting thrills. This is the brand new international trailer for Triple 9, which Gal Gadot will star in next year. This movie also has an all-star cast that I've already written about. Triple 9 has a great trailer, and a particularly good one for Gal Gadot, as the first Triple 9 Red Band trailer barely featured her at all. In this new trailer, however, you see her interacting with Academy Award-nominated Chiwetel Ejiofor and also Academy Award-winning Kate Winslet. The cast for this movie is simply remarkable and as I stated before, could be the surprise movie of 2016. But wait! There's more.


Criminal is currently in post-production, so a trailer has yet to be released. I can't wait, though, because the synopsis sounds amazing.

The memories and skills of a CIA agent are implanted into the brain of a dangerous criminal in order to stop an international terrorist. The story of the right man in the wrong body. In a last-ditch effort to stop a diabolical plot, a dead CIA operative’s memories, secrets, and skills are implanted into an unpredictable and dangerous death-row inmate in hopes the he will complete the operative’s mission.

The top notch cast for Criminal boasts Ryan Reynolds, Tommy Lee Jones, Kevin Costner and, of course, our gal, Gal Gadot.

Gadot has been a very busy woman with these three must-see movies. Gal's star is rapidly rising in the Hollywood sky—but that's just my opinion. How do you feel? Is Gal Godot on the right track?
