The trailer for Salt, a Fugitive-esque espionage thriller re-teaming The Bone Collector director Phillip Noyce and Angelina Jolie, is online, in advance of being pegged in theaters to the forthcoming 2012, and it more or less whets one’s appetite for summery popcorn thrills. The slow-peddled opening coda nicely establishes its hook, the action is well cut together, and Jolie can obviously do smoldering intrigue, ass-kicking, and on-the-lam wheeling and dealing in her sleep. Nice use of a breathy lingerie interstitial, too. Does that sort of thing still matter to teenagers not yet getting any, though, what with the ascendancy and saturation of online porn these days? I guess it’s more or less ingrained in the blood of a certain generation of action trailer editors. But I have to say I’ve never really understood the whole jumping-off-a-wall-to-punch-someone-in-the-face thing, absent martial arts fantasia. Is it about leverage, or what? Clearly I need to take part in more brawls in narrow alleyways. Salt opens July 23, 2010, from Sony Pictures.
