First Poster For Savages
Oliver Stone's new crime drama

If you’ve been itching to take a look at what Oliver Stone has been up to with novel adaptation Savages, this is your lucky week. First out of the gate comes the poster, which you can see below courtesy of the fine folk at JoBlo. The trailer is scheduled to follow in a couple of days.

Savages, drilled from Don Winslow’s bestselling novel by the writer himself and Shane Salerno, follows seemingly laidback Laguna Beach pot growers Ben (Aaron Johnson) and Chon (Taylor Kitsch, in one of the bajillion movies he’s scheduled to appear this year). When their beautiful girlfriend O (Blake Lively) is kidnapped by a Mexican drug cartel looking to move in on their turf, they take matters into their own, violent hands. Which is especially bloody given that Chon also happens to be a former Navy SEAL and ex-mercenary.

The film also features Salma Hayek as the Baja Cartel’s boss, Benicio Del Toro as her fearsome enforcer, Lado. And on the boys’ side (more or less) is a dirty DEA officer (John Travolta) who has his own reasons to get involved.


To see the poster full size at JoBlo, click the image above.

Savages will be out on September 28.

RE: Salma Hayek
This looks interesting, not sure if its an Oliver Stone attempt at a Tarantino/Mann style flick but the poster and casting does seem like it to me. Allot of other movies spring to mind straight away in terms of action sequences to be honest...'Ronin' 'Point Break' 'Heat' and various other crime thrillers where the guys where cool masks hehe. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Savages_(2012_film)url=http://www .imdb.com/title/tt1615065/]http://www.imdb.com/title/tt 1615065/url=http://www.youtube.com/ More

Sounds like something Tony Scott would direct. Looking forward to this. Lets hope it's more U-Turn than W. More
