I love salt, all types of salt really – Sea salt, table salt, rock salt and Evelyn Salt. Not familiar with that last one? She’s next summer’s female action spy played the ever so pouty-lipped Angelina Jolie. At one point, Tom Cruise was rumored to be attached to the Phillip Noyce (Patriot Games, The Bone Collector) directed secret double agent yarn but ultimately, Noyce and company decided to go with a more feminine touch. Good move guys!

Jolie has proven time and again that she is the go-to woman in Hollywood for lead female action roles. Say what you want about the Tomb Raider movie, but as Lara Croft there can be no other woman playing the part. Same goes for her roles in Mr. and Mrs. Smith and last summer’s Wanted. In Salt, she appears to be just as convincing while playing a wrongly accused woman on the run.

Salt co-stars Liev Schreiber (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) as Agent Winter, and Chiwetel Ejiofor (Redbelt, Serenity) that IMDB only lists as Peabody. Equilibrium (which is by far my favorite film of all time) script writer Kurt Wimmer penned the Salt script together with Brian Helgeland, who has an impressive resume himself (L.A. Confidential, Payback, Man on Fire).

Enjoy the trailer below:
