Angelina Jolie kicks ass, wears wigs in new ‘Salt’ trailer


Oh, I’ve been waiting for this for days! Below is the second official trailer for Angelina Jolie’s new spy-action-thriller movie, Salt. Salt comes out July 23, and it was directed by Angelina’s old Bone Collector director, Phillip Noyce (who also did the Harrison Ford-Jack Ryan films). Salt costars some good people, like Liev Schreiber (love) and Chiwetel Ejiofor (love so much). The first trailer started out slower, but this one throws right in with one of the big action sequences (A be-wigged Angelina in the back of a police car that goes off the side of an overpass). Oh, and here’s a big reveal: Evelyn Salt has a dog! OMG!

Yeah, the story is not really all that complicated (or so it seems). Slash Film summarizes (I think this may be the official synopsis for the film): “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?””

The studio also released more “official” images from the film, some of which are very striking. Just think… this movie was supposed to star The Unhinged, Lift-Wearing Midget. I’m so glad Angelina took over!

    Love her. I think Angie is amazing. I also believe that she is a great mother. IT has a hard on for Angie.

  2. Ana says:

    The picture of her with brown eyes freaks me out.

  3. Whatever says:

    I saw a preview for this the other night. It looks really good. I like her as a blonde.

  4. krissy_kitty says:

    This sounds very interesting… I just hope that we don’t see the same storyline and character that we always see from a Jolie action film.

  5. lilred says:

    The pic where she is wearing what looks like one of Brad’s dish rag hats…not good at all.

  6. Melanie says:

    That is her real hair! Not a wig! She changes her hair! Unlike X !!!

  7. jen says:

    THIS one looks amazing.

  8. Rianna says:

    I really like her with the blonde hair. The black one is a little wild but I love the fringe bit! But umm she needs to ditch that rastifarian beanie hat. It makes her look like a POW.
    I dont usually comment on AJ threads because they are out of control but I thought what the heck with this one lol!

  9. bite me says:

    love her can’t wait for this

  10. meme says:

    this is the only type of movie st. angie is good in so it will probably be a hit. there’s no james mcavoy in it so i won’t be seeing it.

  11. Praise St. Angie! says:

    movie looks like a re-tread of a lot of others. it’ll probably do well since this type of movie is where she does her best work.

    but egad! that picture of her on the movie poster…she looks like a camp victim.

    and I thought the point of a wig was was to not LOOK like it’s a wig?

  12. Guest says:

    I think this will do well at the box office. Angie’s action movies do well financially – drama not so much. But a little bit of over acting – no? That scene in the car with the faces she made actually made me laugh.

  13. princess pea says:

    Melanie, there were endless pics leaked from the Salt set. We KNOW that she’s wearing wigs, lots of them. Fact.

    That brown-eyed starving beatnik photo is weird… like we can tell it’s Ange because of her facial structure, but something is just a little off. I’ll probably see this on video or downloaded; I suspect this movie will be more or less the same as 95% of the other spy/agent action films in the last two years.

  14. lucy2 says:

    I like her so much better in action than in dramatic roles, so this one might be one I see. But I’ll second Praise’s egads – none of those shots are very flattering. Put on some weight, woman!

  15. teri says:

    Can’t wait for SALT to come out, been looking forward to it. Yes Angelina was a better choice than Tom. Unlike a few comments I also liked her other movies, some were for mature audiences only so maybe they didn’t see them.

  16. Morgs says:


  17. Lilias says:

    Wow, she really got some height on that wall jump *snicker*

    Anyway, this looks like the same old, same old Angelina-is-a-gun-toting-badass movie. Yawn city. We get it Angelina. You’re BORING ME.

    I think this movie actually would have been better with a male star. And it would have worked better with Tom Cruise because he is already associated with the face-mask-peeling thing from Mission Impossible. This movie just seems like they are copying it.

    It looks like a crapfest of action movie sameness.

    I could figure out who “Salt” was just from the trailer. Way to spoil the “twist” guys. Just like Shutter Island.


  18. Other Laura says:


    Just because action movies are more more fast-paced/less dialogue heavy than romantic comedies does not mean that AJ is not formulaic in her roles, ie, a gun-wielding spy/assassin/cop hybrid who pouts.

    Tomb Radier, Taking Lives, M&MS, Wanted, SALT and the Untitled Kathi Lynn Austin Project which hasn’t started filming which is based on a …..wait for it…..a U.N. Spy!!!!!

    And people say actresses like K. Hudson and J. Aniston are the most one note?

  19. Diva says:

    LOL… this one makes too many action movies, it’s boring, that one makes too many romcoms, it’s boring, some other one makes too many period pieces, it’s boring, yet another makes too many *insert genre*, it’s boring.

    They do what they do, and they make a hell of alot of money at it. Good on them!

    Sheesh… armchair quarterbacking at its best! lol

  20. Beth says:

    To those complaining of another action movie have you actually ever seen any of Angelina’s movies? The characters in The Bone Collector, Taking Lives, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Wanted were completely different as were the movies.

  21. Bruce says:

    Just because she does mainly action type films does not make them or her any less interesting. To compare her to Kate Hudson and Jen Aniston in rom-coms is ridiculous! Angie is always on point with her action films whereas Aniston and Hudson are pretty boring and the films are usually stale. She is good at this and I hope she keeps it up! Funny how no one has a problem with male action stars.

  22. I read an earlier script (which was the version the Unhinged, Lift-Wearing Midget would have used) that makes me think the trailer editors have no idea what they’re doing here. Unless they’ve drastically changed her character’s situation, there’s much more to the whole Salt story. Fingers crossed!

  23. nana says:

    @Beth, her movie ‘Life or Something Like It’ is more different. its a romcom sometime in 2002. I think only few people knows this movie. This is a funny movie with blonde angelina as a sports reporter. not her best movie but it showed angelina can also turn off her manic energy and play a normal woman with marilyn monroe hair.

    @agent, you feel like trailer editors dont know their job and youre lot expert than them. why dont u make your own version, upload it and let us be the judge.

  24. nnn says:

    Taking lives is not an action movie, its a thriller, so is the Bone Collector which is a low grade rip off of the Silence of the Lambs. Again not an action movie per see.

    Jolie’s action movies are Tom Raider I & II, Mr & Mrs Smith (comedic action), Wanted and now Salt. That makes 5 actions movies in all her entire career.

    She is actually a drama actress first and foremost. That’s her primal genre, her core business. And she actually made more of these than the action roles she indulged herself at 26, years after she began her movie career.

  25. sandy says:

    love her and her movie role choices, so interesting, not boring at all, sorry, there is no one like her. the movie will be a hit like all her other ones. go angie!

  26. Lilias says:

    nnn, right so, drama and action.

    How many comedies has she been in? Indie flicks? Cutesy movies that appeal to women?-Kung Fu Panda does not count as she wasn’t funny in it-played yet another “badass”.

    Angelina might be great at drama and action but apparently she either refuses to do comedy or sucks at it. I’m going with sucks at it.

  27. kili says:

    melanie it is a wig and a very ugly wig that makes her look even worse than she allready does.
    And what or who is an X, how old are you 5?

  28. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    OMG so loved this trailer!!!! July hurry up and get here. Man she is amazing.

    I suppose this little discussion of Angie’s film choices has to do with that piece that NY Post wrote about Aniston. Angelina has done a few romantic comedies and Indies but they were much earlier in her career. Playing By Heart is one my favorites. Angelina played well in these parts and while some didn’t like I liked Life or Something Like it. The point is Angelina CAN play these parts and she has. Angelina has the TALENT to do so. Angie has nothing more to prove in her career, to anyone or to anybody.

    I don’t see the need to compare Aniston’s movies choices to Angelina’s. I hate they even have to been linked together in the first place.

  29. Lilias says:

    “I hate they even have to been linked together in the first place.”

    LOL says the person who linked them together!
