Nope, sorry, it’s not the full trailer for Oliver Stone’s “Savages”, it’s just the trailer preview. I.e. the teaser trailer for the trailer for the movie. Hey, at least you won’t have to wait too long for the whole thing, which is due later tomorrow. Besides, it looks pretty awesome. This might just be the first Oliver Stone movie I’ve been excited about seeing in a long, long time. Hell, it looks so good, I’m even entertaining the idea of getting the novel it’s based on and reading that before the movie opens this Summer.
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. And so begins a series of increasingly vicious ploys and maneuvers in a high stakes, savage battle of wills.
Starring Taylor Kitsch, Blake Lively, John Travolta, Salma Hayek, Aaron Johnson, Uma Thurman, Emile Hirsch, Trevor Donovan, Benicio Del Toro, and Joel David Moore.
