VIDEO: Angelina Jolie Springs into Action in Salt

04/01/2010 at 11:45 AM EDT

With car chases, espionage, narrow escapes and steamy sex scenes, Angelina Jolie's new action film Salt appears to be anything but bland.

In the the movie, which is scheduled to be released July 23, Jolie, 34, plays a CIA operative, Evelyn Salt, who is accused of being a Russian spy. The trailer showcases the action-film chops Jolie honed as video-game adventurer Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider series, opening with Jolie escaping from a police vehicle, followed by scenes in which she eludes captors on foot and motorcycle.

Jolie's costar, Liev Schrieber, plays her CIA colleague.
