07.23.2010 - The San Diego Comic Convention is churning up press releases and panel interviews. This time around the focus is on the upcoming Salt starring Angelina Jolie which will be shown in Philippines theaters on July 28, 2010.

I could say its a sleeper hit as the promotions is not as huge as the other films featured at this year's convention. We get to see also actor Liev Schreiber who at first was unfamiliar until Sabretooth came to mind as he played Wolverine's nemesis...

There where talks about Salt was intended to be written for a male actor, which eventually was Tom Cruise but declined the role, since its close to Mission Impossible's Ethan Hunt. His recent movie was Knight and Day which is also a secret agent.

Enter Angelina Jolie to take the role as her own and a different take. Some would compare the character to Jason Bourne minus the amnesia, but we should see it first hand once the film hits the theaters. My expectation is not that high since seeing better films previously has really knocking the charts namely Inception.

Though let's keep our eye open to this film as the last time seeing Jolie was in Mr. & Mrs. with real life hubby Brad Pitt.

So far reading up the premise could churn up an interest here...

As a CIA officer, Evelyn Salt (Jolie) swore an oath to duty, honor and country. Her loyalty will be tested when a defector accuses her of being a Russian spy. Salt goes on the run, using all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative to elude capture. Salt's efforts to prove her innocence only serve to cast doubt on her motives, as the hunt to uncover the truth behind her identity continues and the question remains: "Who Is Salt?"

All I can say is let's wait and see what Angelina Jolie can do with this movie. Missing out on Tomb Raider was inevitable, since she mentioned being too old for the character.

I'm sure this one will be an interesting pop corn flick to see in the next few days.
