Vanity Fair Cover Girl Jolie Talks Home vs. Career, Bier Teases Haevnen, Kick-Ass Power Petites

- Angelina Jolie graces the cover of August's Vanity Fair, amping up for the release of Salt on July 23rd. The mag posted a taste of the interview today. It's not the first time she's said it, but Jolie was clear about acting not being the most important thing to her, and she does not anticipate doing it much longer, even though it helped her to learn about herself while growing up.

- Angelina Jolie graces the cover of August's Vanity Fair, amping up for the release of Salt on July 23rd. The mag posted a taste of the interview today. It's not the first time she's said it, but Jolie was clear about acting not being the most important thing to her, and she does not anticipate doing it much longer, even though it helped her to learn about herself while growing up.

Why stop? "Because I have a happy home" may have something to do with it. As to a Mr. & Mrs. Smith sequel, Jolie admits that she and Brad Pitt have discussed it, but the material they've seen so far was uninspiring: "It was just, 'Well, they're going to get married,' or 'they've got kids,' or 'they get separated.' Never great," she says. While Jolie and her life partner would work together on the "right thing," she says, "I don’t think people want to see people who are really together intimate on-screen." But while it is "too indulgent, too personal" for her, it's exactly what made the original Mr. & Mrs. Smith so irresistible to Brangelinites.

- The NYT's Maria Ricapito asks why the "newly powered petites" --small, violent women on screen--are resonating in the culture, from 13-year-old assassin Chloe Moretz in Kick-Ass to bisexual hacker Lisbeth Salander in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played With Fire. Ricapito suggests that Americans like to believe that powerless "little people" can win at a time when government institutions, too-big-to-fail mega-banks and multi-national oil companies are leaving us with no sense of control in our lives.

- A Danish teaser has gone up prior to the August release of director Susanne Bier's latest, Haevnen, in Denmark. The plot is a mystery. IMDb offers a film with a different name, Civilization. And Sony Pictures Classics is using In a Better World in North America. The teaser hints at a little more (below). And sales agent Trust Nordisk is staying mum. For now, this, and other examples of her work-- After The Wedding and Brothers are must-sees--will have to suffice. Trailers below.
