Can You Pass Me the SALT on Blu-ray, Please?

I don’t know what it is?  Despite the ridiculous action at times and big gaping plot holes, I found myself really liking Angelina Jolie’s Salt.  I’m not a big Jolie fan, but I can’t help being a sucker for her in action movies like Wanted and also in crime thrillers such as Taking Lives (God, I love that film).  Anyway, my wait for Salt on Blu-ray is almost over as Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has officially declared a release date of December 21st for the deluxe unrated Blu-ray that contains 3 different versions of the film.  Wow! Merry early Christmas Brian!  Check out all the details in the full press release below and pre-order your copy now!

CULVER CITY, CALIF. (October 18, 2010) – Academy Award® winner Angelina Jolie (Best Supporting Actress,Girl, Interrupted, 1999) stars as a CIA agent on the run after a defector accuses her of being a Russian spy in the international box-office action-packed event SALT.  The Deluxe Unrated Edition Blu-ray and DVD, debuting on December 21 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, will include three versions of the film including the original theatrical film plus two additional unrated extended cuts not seen in theaters with two alternate endings.  A Theatrical Edition DVD will also be available.  Extensive bonus materials include filmmaker commentary and multiple featurettes that take viewers behind-the-scenes on the adrenaline-pumping thrill ride of the year. SALT will be available on Deluxe Unrated Edition Blu-ray, Deluxe Unrated Edition DVD and Theatrical Edition DVD.


As a CIA officer, Evelyn Salt (Angelina 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?”

    I’m curious about what the director’s cut left out, but I have no real desire to watch this again…that is until Salt 2: Spicy Pepper comes out.

    Trivia – My first article here was the review for Salt.
