While the first look at director Phillip Noyce’s “Salt” happened a few days ago due to a leaked Russian trailer, Sony has wisely posted the official trailer so we can all stop trying to decipher Russian. If you saw the Russian trailer, the official release is exactly the same.
As Matt said the other day, “Salt” looks like Jason Bourne in a dress. And that’s a good thing, especially when it’s Angelina Jolie wearing the dress. If you like action movies, check out the trailer after the jump. “Salt” hits theaters on July 23rd, 2010.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Angelina Jolie stars in Columbia Pictures’ Salt, a contemporary espionage thriller. Before becoming a CIA officer, Evelyn Salt (Jolie) swore an oath to duty, honor, and country. She will prove loyal to these when a defector accuses her of being a Russian sleeper spy. Salt goes on the run, using all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative to elude capture, protect her husband, and stay one step ahead of her colleagues at the CIA.
“Salt” also stars Liev Schreiber, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Andre Braugher. The film was produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and written by Kurt Wimmer and Brian Helgeland
