Salt Preview/Synopsis

Salt July 23

Directed by Phillip Noyce ( Patriot Games, The Bone Collector ) Starring Angelina Jolie, Liev Schreiber, Chiwetel Ejiafor, Andre Braugher, written by Kurt Wimmer ( The Recruit, Sphere ) Cinematography by Oscar winner Robert Elswit ( There Will Be Blood ) Editing by Oscar nominee Stuart Baird ( Superman ) and John Gilroy ( Pride and Glory, Miracle ) Original score by multiple Oscar nominee James Newton Howard ( Defiance, Blood Diamond )

Evelyn Salt ( Jolie ) a CIA officer will soon see her loyalty tested with a defector that accuses her of being a Russian spy, which leads Salt to go on the run and live by her training instincts to get her through this ordeal before proving herself to the world that she is who she says she is.

Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of action and violence.

Oscar chances ? This one has my scratching my head. I'm hearing very good things early about it. But more than likely Salt is a action/thriller type summer popcorn movie. I could see it getting some MTV movie awards though.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
