Salt Trailer Finds New Ways to Capitalize on Angelina Jolie’s Sex Appeal

We're getting our first glimpse of Angelina Jolie’s newest film, Salt, in which she plays a CIA agent who has to run around New York City tasing cops and leaping off highway overpasses, just to prove that she’s not a Russian spy trying to kill the president. Or is she? Jolie replaced Tom Cruise, who was originally slated to play the lead (Edwin Salt became Evelyn Salt), and the film that got made seems to be less about action and more about the actress: In the film Jolie has blonde hair — well, until she dyes it black for added stealth (and to emphasize her bangs!) — and she spends at least part of her time onscreen wearing a skirt suit that, let’s say, features her legs.
