The trailer for Angelina Jolie’s new spy movie Salt has popped up online. Unfortunately it’s only available in Russian. Actually that’s not such a big deal. This is a spy movie after all and while there’s a lot of talking, you can probably get the gist of what’s going on regardless of the words being used.

Maybe that’s not such a good thing for Salt though, the trailer feels rather formulaic. There’s an interrogation, an escape, a series of wigs, some jumping on the roofs of cars and the pointing of guns. About what you’d expect really. Take a look:

In case Russian isn’t your thing, here’s the official Salt plot synopsis:
Before becoming a CIA officer, Evelyn Salt (Jolie) swore an oath to duty, honor, and country. She will prove loyal to these when a defector accuses her of being a Russian sleeper spy. Salt goes on the run, using all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative to elude capture, protect her husband, and stay one step ahead of her colleagues at the CIA.
