Oliver Stone "interrogates" the cast of Savages, including Salma Hayek, Blake Lively, and Benicio Del Toro
Oliver Stone's SAVAGES is right around the corner and they've put together a fairly clever marketing push with a series of "interrogation" videos in which the director questions each member of the main cast while in character. If nothing else, it's a fun little viral for a movie that I'm hoping will be more in line with Stone's NATURAL BORN KILLERS than W. Thus far, it's looking very promising.
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. 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.
SAVAGES opens on July 6, 2012.
