Salt Movie Trailer #2

Sony Pictures has released a new movie trailer for Phillip Noyce‘s thriller Salt on Apple. The film tells the story of a CIA officer Evelyn Salt, played by Angelina Jolie, who is outed as a Russian sleeper spy, and must evade capture by those who are convinced she’s aiming to assassinate the president.

As a CIA officer, Evelyn Salt swore an oath to duty, honor and country. Her loyalty will be tested when a defector accuses her of being a Russian spy. Salt goes on the run, using all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative to elude capture. Salt’s efforts to prove her innocence only serve to cast doubt on her motives, as the hunt to uncover the truth behind her identity continues and the question remains: “Who is Salt?”

Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.  I’m still not interested in this film despite the talent involved. Seems like yet another movie where Angelina Jolie gets to wear a series of bad wigs / disguises while making use of a new accent. The action sequences don’t look too hot either. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Update: An official domestic teaser trailer has been released online, and is now embedded after the jump. The original story follows.

We’ve seen a few photos of Angelina Jolie in character for her lead role in Salt, the political action thriller that was rewritten for the actress when Tom Cruise bailed on the role. Now there’s an international trailer, straight from Russia. First thought: man, they really do some great lip-matching work when dubbing movies over there! Check the Russian trailer after the jump.

Third Photo of Angelina Jolie in Salt

angelina jolie salt

Yesterday, Columbia Pictures released the first two photos of Angelina Jolie as Evelyn Salt in Phillip Noyce‘s thriller Salt. But the photos weren’t much to look at, just Jolie wearing different color wigs. Today the good folks at Columbia Picture have sent me a third (better) photo of Jolie as Salt. Click on the image above to enlarge. The film tells the story of a CIA officer who is outed as a Russian sleeper spy, and must evade capture by those who are convinced she’s aiming to assassinate the president.

First Look: Angelina Jolie in Salt

[No photo]

Columbia Pictures has released the first two photos of Angelina Jolie as Evelyn Salt in Phillip Noyce‘s thriller Salt. The film tells the story of a CIA officer who is outed as a Russian sleeper spy, and must evade capture by those who are convinced she’s aiming to assassinate the president. The photos aren’t much to look at, just Jolie wearing different color wigs — definitely nothing we haven’t seen before.

Described as Alias meets James Bond / Jason Bourne, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura says the film is “a reality-based spy movie with action set pieces as thrilling as the most crowd-pleasing movies of this genre.” But while the Jason Bourne series asks the question “Who Am I?,”  Bonaventura says “the question of Salt is, ‘We know everything about her, but do we?’ [Her pursuers] have a ton of information to act on, but that’s where they begin to question what is real and what isn’t.” He continues:

“People who think they know the real her may or may not. Those who think they can tell whether she’s in a disguise also may or may not. You’re supposed to be kept guessing. She tells you her agenda, but are you supposed to believe it?”
