We’ve seen nothing but good things from Oliver Stone’s Savages, which has one of the finest casts of the year, headed up by Blake Lively, Aaron Johnson, Taylor Kitsch, Benicio del Toro, John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Emile Hirsch, and Salma Hayek – a combination that guarantees brilliance.
The dramatic crime-thriller is due out in the US in two weeks, and having got the latest batch of interrogation videos and more yesterday, we’ve now got two new TV spots and an extended restricted clip for you.
“Three-time Oscar(R)-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone returns to the screen with the ferocious thriller Savages, featuring the all-star ensemble cast of Taylor Kitsch, Blake Lively, Aaron Johnson, John Travolta, Benicio Del Toro, Salma Hayek, Emile Hirsch and Demian Bichir. The film is based on Don Winslow’s best-selling crime novel that was named one of The New York Times’ Top 10 Books of 2010. Laguna Beach entrepreneurs Ben (Johnson), a peaceful and charitable marijuana producer, and his closest friend Chon (Kitsch), a former Navy SEAL and ex-mercenary, run a lucrative, homegrown industry–raising some of the best weed 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.”
The film is based on the original novel by Don Winslow, best-selling US crime novelist, with Stone, Winslow, and Shane Salerno adapting it for the big screen.
Savages will be released in the US on 6th July, the same weekend as The Amazing Spider-Man (which is released on the 3rd), and will come to the UK a little later on 28th September. Expect awesomeness and nothing less.
