The new trailer for the Angelina Jolie thriller Salt is selling the movie as a Bourne-esque chase flick. But the pedigree behind the film — director Phillip Noyce (Clear and Present Danger, The Quiet American), screenwriter Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential, Mystic River), cinematographer Robert Elswit (There Will Be Blood) — suggests that there might be a lot more going on beneath this film’s sleek exterior. Or maybe Salt will simply be an action thriller fine-tuned for maximum adrenaline-rising impact. Either way, this trailer gets my blood pumping, for who doesn’t enjoy watching Ms. Jolie run around in full kick-ass mode?
