A new trailer for Angelina Jolie’s action movie Salt has come online. The tagline of the marketing campaign asks, “Who Is Salt?” After seeing this trailer, I would like to venture a guess: Salt is a woman who is framed as a Russian spy and then goes on the lam to save her kidnapped husband and clear her name. Oh, and this woman kicks lots of ass along the way.
I’m not sure if there’s much more of a plot in there and the action doesn’t impress me as much as it does in the the new A-Team trailer, but I hope that it’s as good as the Bourne movies it looks like it’s trying to emulate.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer along with the official synopsis. Salt hits theaters on July 23rd.

Here is the official synopsis for Salt:
As a CIA officer, Evelyn Salt (Jolie) 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?”
