Actress Angelina Jolie stars in the Columbia Pictures' espionage thriller "Salt" as contemporary CIA officer Evelyn Salt. This action-based thriller follows the story of Salt who, before becoming an agent, swore to protect her country through duty and honor. This oath is put to the test when she is accused by a defector of being a Russian sleeper spy and uses all of her experience and covert skills to avoid capture, protect her family, and find some answers, all while staying a step ahead of the agency that trained her. Available in Blu-ray format, viewers can fully appreciate the heart-pounding action of this thriller in the crystal clarity of 1080-pixel HD and widescreen formatting. "Salt" offers viewers many special features, including pop quizzes, a gallery of film stills, documentaries following the actors and director, a look at what real CIA agents do, commentaries, behind-the-scenes footage, and more. The Blu-ray disc has an aspect ratio of 2.40:1 and subtitles for English, French, and Spanish, as well as movie languages in all three options. "Salt" is directed by Philip Noyce and, alongside Jolie, stars Liev Schreiber and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
