Oliver Stone's Savages gets a trailer teaser

Apr. 4, 2012by:

Here comes another teaser for a trailer, this time for Oliver Stone's SAVAGES. Don't hit me, I am just the messenger!

On top of the poster for the film and some images, we now have some actual footage to drool over. Check out some fleeting glimpses of Aaron Johnson, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Salma Hayek, Blake Lively, and Benicio Del Toro.

Synopsis: Three-time Oscar®-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, Uma Thurman, 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 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.

This looks like a cross between Stone's NATURAL BORN KILLERS and U-TURN, which is fine by me since both are favorites of mine. Blake Lively and Salma Hayek in a movie that surely will have them in as few clothes as possible? John Travolta and Benicio Del Toro chewing the scenery? Sign me up!

The full trailer will premiere online tomorrow so keep an eye out on the site as soon as it is available.

SAVAGES opens July 6th.

In my opinion a teaser is often better than a full length trailer. Interesting synopsis, cool teaser, and good reviews is all I need. If our future resembles Idiocracy, I imagine trailers will some day become 15 minutes long and show you damn near every detail.

Looks promising...

Extra Tidbit: Blake Lively, hands down. Plus, between Penelope Cruz and Salma, I've always preferred Cruz. Hayek seems she'd be hairy. Like more than the Kardashians.

Reading the synopsis I was surprised to see that this book was listed on the NYTimes Top 10 books of 2010. That was, apparently, because it wasn't. I thought the book was a lazy attempt at post modern crime fiction. Just nothing special. But it is entirely possible that I missed something or just didn't get it. It was, however, NOT on the top 10 of 2010.

Looks good, Stone back to form. You guys complaining about this trend have mental problems, I said it. By that logic we should get rid of TV SPOTS. I mean, afterall, they're essentially the SAME. Minus a few title cards. Give me a break.

I hate this trend. Just release the fucking trailer. It's obviously done already.

I'm looking forward to this movie. I read the book about a month ago and, to be honest, it kind of sucked. I love crime fiction and pulp, but this came off as pretty amateur and juvenile. The dialog is nothing special and the plot is bare bones. I know that Don Winslow has written several books and had them turned into several movies but none of them have been any good. Maybe there is a reason for that. But

But Oliver Stone is a sophisticated filmmaker if nothing else, and with the cast involved and the story taking place in the drug world I can see him doing something interesting.
