The full trailer for Oliver Stone's Savages with Kitsch, Hayek, Travolta, and Del Toro

Apr. 5, 2012by: Paul Shirey

The full-length trailer for Oliver Stone's SAVAGES has arrived and it looks like the director may finally be having some fun, delivering what looks to be a straight action-crime flick with a stellar cast, including Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Johnson, John Travolta, Salma Hayek, Benicio Del Toro, and Blake Lively.

Shoot 'em up:

I've been hoping that Stone would tackle the action genre for a while.  He's got some serious technical skill that doesn't get much use in the films he's been doing of late, but this looks to have the high octane punch of NATURAL BORN KILLERS or ANY GIVEN SUNDAY, mixed up in a bowl of Tony Scott influence. 

Could SAVAGES be this years FAST FIVE?  Other than EXPENDABLES 2, I can't think of any other action movies coming out this summer.  SAVAGES is officially on my watch list.  I mean, if nothing else, seeing Kitsch and Johnson in their "Army of Two" get ups with semi-automatic machine guns should be pretty enticing.  Plus, I'm a sucker for mass vehicular carnage and orange balls of fire.  Call me crazy.

SAVAGES gets down and dirty on July 6, 2012.

Extra Tidbit: If you've never seen Oliver Stone's first film, Salvador, starring James Woods and James Belushi, now's a good time to remedy that. Absolutely powerful.

WHOA! Where did this come from?!

Jumps right up to my already overcrowded watchlist of this summer! Never would've guessed its an Oliver Stone film unless I saw the credit. And with Travolta as a sleazy cop, Salma Hayek as the kingpin, Del Toro as the vicious enforcer, plus Kitch & Johnson with their masks on looking BADASS...this is going to be Awesome!!!

Side note, is it just me or does Hayek looks very much like Demi Moore here?

Wow. Went in postitive that I'd hate what I saw and didn't. Normally, I think these oh-so-hip-&-violent things should have died off in the mid 90s, but I want to see this . . .

Taylor Kitsch seems to be channeling Paul Walker here, hmmm. But, I love Salma Hayek as the villain!

"No action films this summer"- WTF?

Are superhero movies not action films? If so, then we have a terrible problem at my job. Or how about "Battleship"? Or "Snow White & The Huntsman" (looks very action-oriented)? Seriously, wtf?

While there may be action in a movie, that doesn't mean it's an action film. When I think of an action film, I think of guns, explosions, and fistfights. I don't think of swords, horses, and capes. I call those fantasy or superhero films.

First half looked cool. But when it turns into "gotta save our whorish fuck-buddy!" I'm officially checked out.

And Taylor Kitsch needs to stop doing that wannabee batman growl. I love the actor, but come on dude...

Headshake

Meh, looks like almost everything else nowadays. Overblown action, no coherent characters and a glam presentation that totally stands at odds with the concept. About as engaging as a headcold.

Looks great, could be some great gritty action. Certainly has the flashy Scott feel.No CG shit too.

Looks good. But I think the trailer might be misleading a bit and making it seem like there is much more action that what there actually is.

Extra tidbit: Salvador wasn't Stone's first film, just sayin'...

Extra tidbit

Check out any of Oliver Stone's work from the '80's starting with Salvador & ending with Nixon. Dude was on a serious role--everything he made was absolutely riveting stuff: Platoon, Talk Radio, Wall Street, JFK, and on and on.

Oliver Stone doing hardcore action? With this cast? I'm definitely in. I would be shocked if this was an action film that didn't deliver.

Hm. Doesn't look like a Stone film. I'm getting a major Tony Scott mixed with Soderbergh feel. Doesn't matter. Still looks rad.

I saw some visual similarities to Natural Born Killers. It seems to have a similar kinetic style and the camera work, with shaky cam and close ups, did remind me of this other film.

I think they want their "the ____ called and they want their ____ back" as well. Isn't that also kind of an outdated line?
