Exclusive Peek at Angelina Jolie’s Spy Thriller ‘Salt’

The intricate twists and turns the story of Evelyn Salt takes in Angelina Jolie’s upcoming spy thriller Salt have her jumping off bridges, scaling tall buildings and kicking the crap out of her friends.

She’s a CIA operative who is accused of being a Russian spy, and she spends the film on a desperate quest to clear her name – and each attempt she makes only makes her mentor Winter (Liev Schreiber) more convinced she’s guilty. She has to rely on herself to keep ahead of dogged pursuit from the aggressive Agent Peabody (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and find her missing husband.

Jolie describes the film as “a bit Bond, a bit Bourne and a bit Salt” in this sneak peek behind the scenes of the movie, including comments from Schreiber, Ejiofor and even a real-life former CIA agent offering her own insight on the events of the film (which hits theaters Friday, July 23).
