New 'Salt' trailer: Less talk, more Angelina Jolie, more explosions

April 1, 2010 |  3:24 pm

Angelina No April Fooling -- there's a new trailer out for Angelina Jolie's "Salt," and it's serving up more sweeping skylines, explosions and Angie-in-a-bra montages. Oh, yeah, it also has a bit more exposition for anyone who cares (watch it above!).

We've established that Jolie's character, Evelyn Salt, is a hardworking, patriotic U.S. intelligence agent (read: hair is blond). After a Russian spy implies that Salt is a mole for the Russkis, Jolie must elude her own agency until her name is cleared (read: dies hair black).

The new trailer reveals that Salt has a young son to protect, a missing husband with answers, and at least two scenes in which she's clad in her intimates. It's all so textured! 

Liev Schreiber intimidates with his trench coat and forehead gash, and Angie rocks it with exciting skills including jumping off stuff, landing on stuff, blowing stuff up and beating up men. No, seriously. This excites us.
