Angelina Jolie coming to Comic-Con
Image Credit: Andrew SchwartzAngelina Jolie will be in San Diego a week from today to promote Salt at Comic-Con, the Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision blog has confirmed. Obviously, the woman has cred having starred in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and Wanted, and with its masked identity theme, Salt is a movie that should appeal to the convention crowd. Jolie, as THR notes, is one of the few women who can open an action film. My question: Be honest. What kind of movie are you more likely to pay to see Angelina Jolie star in: An action flick or a straight drama? I’m not ashamed to say my favorite performance of hers is Mr. & Mrs. Smith (and that I’m totally hoping for a sequel), but I’m not necessarily proud that I haven’t actually seen anything in which she wasn’t wielding a large weapon since Girl, Interrupted.*
*I would have broken that streak if The Tourist wasn’t “an international spy thriller” because it co-stars Johnny Depp.
