The official trailer for Oliver Stone's "Savages" is set to premiere tomorrow (April 5th), but today we have a 15-second preview of the new movie, which stars Taylor Kitsch, Blake Lively, Aaron Johnson, John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Benicio Del Toro, Salma Hayek, Emile Hirsch and Demian Bichir. Check out the preview below and see the movie in theaters on July 6th.
Plot: Laguna Beach entrepreneurs Ben (Johnson), a peaceful and charitable Buddhist, and his closest friend Chon (Kitsch), a former Navy SEAL and ex-mercenary, run a lucrative, homegrown industry — raising some of the best marijuana ever developed. They also share a one-of-a-kind love with the extraordinary beauty Ophelia (Lively). Life is idyllic in their Southern California town... until the Mexican Baja Cartel decides to move in and demands that the trio partners with them.
When the merciless head of the BC, Elena (Hayek), and her brutal enforcer, Lado (Del Toro), underestimate the unbreakable bond among these three friends, Ben and Chon — with the reluctant, slippery assistance of a dirty DEA agent (Travolta) — wage a seemingly unwinnable war against the cartel.
Well, he has a great cast, doesn't he? But Stone lost his edge a while back. World Trade Center? No thanks. W? Alexander? Wall Street 2? Dunno. Maybe he's returned to form, but I know this much: his political views will show up somehow.
